    Alright so here are my passeport invitations.  A big thank you thank you to Steph (skp1) who's invitations I fell in love with and to KCB2011 who had Canadian supplier info which helped a lot!

     

    So here's what I bought

     

    Anthracite text weight paper from paper-garden.ca

    Silver text weight paper from paper-garden.ca

    Envelopes (A-2 and A-7) from paper-garden.ca

    Lined paper from Staples.

    Ordered rubber stamps from Simonstamp

    printed at my mom's on a Canon inkjet printer

    Corner puncher from walmart

    elmer stick glue

    glue gun 

     

    Started by playing with my text and logo's on Word.  Borrowed ideas from the Aylee template but played with everything myself.

     

    Printed the text on the lined paper.  Cut out that paper, sewed them together with a beading needle and viscose thread. Rounded the outer corners

     

    then I worked the cover by doing some embossing.  Very surprised by that result!  Glued the inside pages to the cover. Rounded the outer corner of the cover and that fixed the inside pages at the same time.

     

    Folded the paper and cut it out to do the folders.  Printed and cut the paper to do the RSVP tags.  Used a hole puncher and ribon to finish them off.  Stamped our K in the back.  Put everything in the folder, closed them with wax (very cool little wax sticks that you just put in the glue gun.  Put everything in the big envelope and VOILA!  We're Katryne and Kevin so we thought K square was really funny.. hahahah we're quirky like that! :)  They've all just been mailed out! so excited!!

          Wow, tr¨s beau travail!

           

          On the other hand, I've noticed that you're from Mtl too...did you work with a TA?  If so, can you tell me with whom?  I have a hard time to find someone...

           

          Thanks ;-)

            Merci Papoue! :)

             

            I'm using Air Canada Vacation.  I needed a transporter that was going down south on weekdays (we've chosen Thursday) because I have a lot of health workers in the group who work every other weekend.  I knew which resort I wanted to go with and I wanted someone who I was sure wasn't going to cancel their flight! ...  So I'm going to have to do a lot of stuff myself but I don't mind!

              These are sooo nice, great job. JHow did you emboss the cover, did you do them yourself or get them done professionally?

                did it myself with rubber stamps, embossing ink, embossing powder and heater.  Here's how: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=BtN-EiK-sig

                    i'm so intrigued with the embossing, I think that this is amazing

                    Is the cover 3 different stamps or one? Did they all come from Simonstamp?

                    I’m from montreal too and was wondering where did you get your embossing ink and embossing powder
