i've had a number of inquiries regarding my MUST-HAVE DIY tools..so here's the items that have been my 'go-to' tools throughout my DIY process...

 

I.  adhesives

i'm all about martha...girls..i'm super seriously obsessed with the genius that is martha stewart..so i found her glue pen and gel adhesive to be my 'go-to' adhesives..they are super easy to use, virtually mess free and stick on pretty much everything AND quickly...and clear.  they work on ribbon..on paper..you name it...both are great for pretty much ALL of my DIY needs.  i didn't have much luck with double sided tape...frankly, it just didn't stick and well, it was bulky...

 

II.  paper

so, ya'll know, me and michaels are in the midst of a full fledged love affair..i visit the store OFTEN..and so i've chosen loose cardstock for my entire stationery suite..i truly fell in love with the bazille cardstock that i understand can be bought in bulk..i've always just bought single sheets and normally ON SALE...they tend to go on sale often so be on the lookout...  i bought vellum for my luminaries in a package from michaels and from hobby lobby.  you can print on vellum using either an inkjet or a laser jet printer...SUPER easy and they make for INSTANT luminaries.  super cost efficient decor option!!

 

III.  paper cutters, scissors, etc.

lucky for me, i found a paper cutter at ross for almost nothing..as well as fiskars scissors with decorative edges...  check out the stationery, scrapbooking section at your local store...they tend to have fiskars and even martha stewart punches, etc..for SUPER cost efficient pricing...i bought a round corner punch from michaels along with martha stewart's, eyelet paper punch, starfish and seahorse punches...gotta LOVE martha...the punches were used to make custom confetti, etc. 

 

IV.  ribbon

the bulk of my ribbon was purchased from the dollar tree..check out the flower and candle aisle..my local stores are chock full of rolls of ribbon in all sorts of colors...they come in rolls of 4, 5 and even 6 feet...from satin to sheer.

 

V.  paint

i bought my glitter paint at michaels..martha stewart's glitter paint...GENIUS!!  they come in an array of colors and ALL are equally beautiful..i did try the black and wasn't too thrilled with it..but i highly recommend the silver and lavender shades.  i also bought spray paint at home depot..got a metallic silver and a purple...the purple didn't meet my needs so i ended up using food coloring...the purple paint..well, it looked like 'spray' paint...i did buy some watercolor paint and metallic paint from hobby lobby which worked really well for painting my shells..i ended up mixing my own shade of metallic silver/purple...which worked REALLY well and don't forget..if you're using real starfish they can be dyed using food coloring..you know the same way, we used to dye easter eggs..same concept...follow the egg dyeing instructions on the packaging and voila...starfish in your color scheme...woo hoo!!

 

ok, lovelies, that's it from here..i hope that helps as you embark on your DIY projects...

 

until next time, HAPPY PLANNING!!!

Thank you so much for the advice on your supplies! I finally hopped off the fence about getting involved with making my own stationary and other papercraft items.  Took advantage of a sale on the martha stewart paper cutter and the starfish/sand dollar stamp, some cardstock, some vellum and some stamps!  I am ALL in on the DIY train.... and Mrs Tgun...I blame you!! ;)

 

Thanks for all of your inspiration, and the detailed supply list!

Hi MrsTGun

2 questions!

what did you use for the skinny wooden sticks for your drink flags?  are they wooden skewers cut to size?

I see you have stamps of the martha seahorses and sand dollar on your drink flags below....did you use the punches to make those?  how did you do those?  I would love to stamp them on invites and such.... and I just bought one of the punches.... help? :)

I started them last night, so I have the design - too bad my first run was a complete disaster!! Great thing that they are on sale at Michael's for $2.  So now that I know what I am doing, I will start my production line tonight and post pictures in my blog.

hi, hatfiehm!

the skinny wooden sticks are kabob skewers found at my local HEB/grocery store...i cut them down...using scissors.

i used the punches to punch out the designs...  the punches can be used for lots of things..like confetti too...just punch them out using cardstock..use the adhesive to glue them to the circle and voila...drink flags and custom stirrers.

 

hope that helps!

 

until next time, happy planning!!!

hi there, anudrm!!

yeah, with a beach destination wedding..folks tend to want to do sealife...shells, etc...

 

do you and your honey have anything that ya'll like together..ie, the love of music?  love of disney....anything florida related or maybe team related (ie, favorite football and/or basketball team) time pieces, etc.? candy, etc...uno, spades, etc???

 

you see, i love SCRABBLE..so i had to incorporate it somehow and well, we're getting married at the beach and seahorses, shells, starfish, etc are in our logo so..it just made sense to incorporate all of those elements...our color scheme is actually the same colors as my love's favorite football team (baltimore ravens, baby -- #ravensfanbymarriageonly - CLEVELAND ROCKS!!)...plus he adores all things paisley...so i threw that in too...

 

if you love music..maybe you could add song names instead of table numbers..and/or make music notes as part of your stationery suite..i saw your beautiful boarding passes and love the flowers on them...could you add those to your tablescape???  they were stunningly beautiful..i bet you could make paper flowers like those or fabric ones...might be hours and hours of DIYing involved but i bet it'd be SUPER cute...or maybe you two like time pieces..maybe you get standing clocks and add those to your tablescape..there are so many different things you can add to the decor for relatively cheap along with candles, tea lights, luminaries, etc (lumi's can be made at home)..which will complement your overall theme.

 

i'm all about tying things together but in a way that it makes sense..check out online blogs..stylemepretty.com is one of my faves along with marthastewartweddings.com...

 

until next time, happy planning, love!!!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
