Just got home from Michaels. I think I got carried away at the store. I’m promising myself to scrapbook recent events soon after it has happened. I have so much memorabilia from 2 year ago that I have to include in our Adventure Book. So my mission these next few weeks: our Honeymoon scrapbook!
Wish me luck!
/the dollar spot/
Target. Our favorite store. The store where you leave with 15 unplanned items on your shopping list. This is what we ended up buying last February:
Props to the Fiance for the idea. He had spotted these at the dollar spot and suggested to use these as our Save The Dates. But we would have to buy ~150 of them! So, there goes that plan. The following day, my light switched turned on and thought this would be perfect for our engagement party invites. So I rushed to a couple of Targets in San Diego, Escondido, & Vista, while my mom grabbed some in her area. This worked out since our engagement party was planned for family and the wedding party only.
We L-O-V-E Disney/Pixar’s UP!
Our one year anniversary (July 2009), I made him “Our Adventure Book” with events we’ve shared in the first year of dating and for future times
Valentine’s Day 2010, I made him the mailbox from the movie with his gift inside.
/DIY engagement invitations/
- Mailboxes: We bought Clear Full Sheet Labels to print the design for the mailbox.
- Engagement Pictures: Bauman Photographers
- Invitations: Pear Tree Greetings
- Invitation Envelopes: We printed the image of the “Up” house at the top of Paradise Falls on the clear labels. Cut them to create stamps. After sticking the stamps on the envelopes, we printed a postmark stamp with the date of the Engagement Party.
We were both really happy with the outcome. We set the bar pretty high for our actual wedding invitations. I don’t think it can top these!!
