  • My Wedding: Invitations, Part 4 – Envelope Liner Tutorial envelopeliner1

    Envelope liners are a small detail but I really wanted to add them into our wedding invitations. I like the look of them! They add a fun pop of color and help protect the contents of envelope a little.  I’m pretty sure the male half of our guests did not notice this detail and probably ...

  • My Wedding: Invitations, Part 3 – Wax Seal Tutorial waxseal1

    Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the look of wax seals. It looks old fashioned yet sophisticated at the same time!
