      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!

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!
