So excited to show my save-the-dates off!  I designed (and redesigned and redesigned!) myself & somehow managed to pull it off... almost can't believe it!  I'm someone who is always full of amazing ideas for craft projects, then has quite a bit of trouble executing them.  In other words, my brain is more talented than my hands are! ;)  But this time I really did it! =)   DSCF9872.jpg   Started with sticker paper, magnet paper, yellow note cards, gold eyelets, & green ribbon.   DSCF9882.jpg   Designed a sticker for the outside of the card & did a luggage tag design for the magnets.  Printed out 20 of each, then promptly decided I hated the flamingo on the stickers and just couldn't live with it (hard to tell here, but it was clip art & looked low quality, at least to me).  Wish I'd trusted my gut before printing out all those stickers, but I decided it was better to reprint and waste the ink & paper than to be unhappy and less than spectacularly proud to send these out.   DSCF9897.jpg   Card with sticker applied.  Much happier with this flamingo!   DSCF9898.jpg   I cut slits in the card for the luggage tag.  The cards we've handed out so far, I've had to tell friends to lift the magnet out... hope the people who get them in the mail figure it out!   DSCF9899.jpg   std.jpg   This picture is from my scanner, so the tag looks a bit blurry, since it wouldn't lie completely flat in the scanner bed.  It's perfect in person, though.      So stinking proud!  We've been handing them out in person to local friends, and I'm beaming as they open them up!  I've stood in front of friends' fridges and just stared with a silly grin on my face. =D
I love these...great job!!!

Yes, but it's a psd file, so you'll need to use photoshop to work with it.

 

I'll PM it to you since you don't have enough posts to see it here (hope you can see it through PM; not sure how that works).

Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone!  I've been extremely busy since the wedding, so quite slow to respond, but I'm thankful for each & every comment!  Reminds me the hard work was worth it! wink.gif

These look fantastic! Quick question for clarification... were these magnet luggage tags meant to be applied to their actual luggage as well? Or as a save the date for the fridge? Either way they are adorable!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
