I did cut it by hand.. I used large label sheets.. I can tell you the exact size if you need me to. but they were a little bit too big, so I had to cut them down to the size I needed. I wish I would have made my images just a tad smaller bc I had to cut it super close. But since them I have invested in a paper cutter (19.99 with 40% off at Michaels) I bought one from Hobby Lobby but it was junky.. I've got all my labels printed, so I'm going to try the paper cutter on all the others today.  :o) The Dollar store ones are def a lot better!  I was going to do mine from scratch as well but cases for a $1 plus the contents, you can't beat that.

 

Oh my!!.. Did you buy blank magnets to print on?  How many do you have?  Possibly you could do a reminder save the date on them? I was thinking of doing that, but haven't decided for sure yet..   I completely understand!!.. I just use all my free time at work to get my projects done. :o) Lunch breaks, etc. I too am having to pull myself back on many things, I see soo many cute things but halft to remind myself I'm suppose to save not splurge on everything I see.

 

Oh wow, I hope so!.. I'm soo excited!

Because of you I broke down and bought the dollar store ones, I was trying to do it myself for cheaper but trying to find nice affordable packaging was a pain and in the end it was better for me to get the case, so now I have to do labels. But I hope you didn't cut that perfectly by hand because I don't want to do that!

 

My problem is I want things I don't need. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to make magnets like Skp1 made and I don't NEED them, but I do have a ton of magnets I need to use (I bought for another project that died) so I have to glue them to something! I have like 4 half done projects now and 10 more waiting on me. I need to stop..I wish I had the time you have if not for the projects but to space the saving the money out better.  I've heard nothing but good things about Lucianos; even better than Atlantis so I know you'll be happy!

Thanks! :o)    I love these colors as well.. When I was first looking for a color scheme, I had no clue what to go with and couldn't find many things on google.. I surprised to see how many other girls chose these colors.. Great choice though, maybe some people will have left over goodies to sale!! :o)

I love those bags from Old Navy!  My colors are the same as yours and those bags fit perfectly.  How long ago did you buy them?  I may need to go stalk all the Old Navy stores around me...lol

I'm scared to ruin the label sheets but I need to get on it. I wanted to glue (with runner tape) them on so I can use this pretty paper but I'm worried how it will hold up. I had a $20 cutter from Michaels (with coupon of course) but I wanted to cut more at a time so I got the one with the arm from Office Max with a coupon and I love it! Cutting all my STD was a pain, I need to finish some extras but I've been putting it off because I don't want to start cutting again.

 

So I have the little button magnets, I was planning on making shell and glass bubble magnets for save the dates but I couldn't find the right size shells at a decent price. I want to use them for a favor for the out bags but still looking for the right shells. I really have enough stuff in the bags but I wan't to use the magnets so bad! I did print some free business card magnets from Vista, they come in sets of 25 and I got 50. I like the quality but make your colors bold because they come out softer. 

 

In addition to free time at work I avoid cleaning and sleeping because of projects!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
