Save the date: Cara + Jeff

Cara sent me her VERY cool save the dates over the weekend to share with you guys!  Here’s what she had to say.

I was really inspired by a bunch of the real save-the-dates that you posted a few months ago.  I hadn’t really thought much about mine before that but I realized that we could do something really fun with it and put a bit of our personalities into it, so I wanted to share what we came up with.

The inspiration for our card came from a McKinley-Roosevelt campaign poster from 1899 that we got from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the design work was done by my friend and talented Brooklyn-based graphic designer, Kelli Anderson (www.kellianderson.com).

Joy’s invitations

Joy did such a great job with her invites, I’m so glad she sent them!  Letterpressed them all herself too!

I thought these were right up your alley…

Boyfriend and i are getting married in DUMBO at Smack Mellon.. on earth day! April 22…
i can’t decide if i was more excited to get married or do wedding crafts! we had so much fun making our own announcements and save the dates that i wanted to do the invites as well..
i’ve pretty much always been obsessed with letterpress so i took a workshop at The Arm (thearmnyc.com) in Brooklyn.. then bf and i came up with the idea for our invite.. i figured out illustrator, had a plate made and went back into the studio to press all of them! im in love.. i could do it all day! ha!

DIY embroidered bags

Remember how I went to the Martha Stewart Show 2 weeks ago?  Well, what you DIDN’T know is that right afterwards, I headed right back to Brooklyn to tape a How-Tuesday video with the cool kids at Etsy.  The topic was DIY weddings featuring fabric, and I showed how to make an embroidered drawstring bag.  Check it out if you’re interested.
