My Summer















This is what I worked on almost all summer. My brother is getting married in October and I made their wedding invitations. I started in June and finally finished them at the end of July.

In addition to the invite itself, there were four enclosures, the front closure and the inner envelope to stamp. All in total I stamped eight images for each complete invitation. I made 150 of these so stamped 1200 images just for the inviations! I am so luck that my husband work for Lexmark printers and we have a really nice color laser printer that enabled me to be able to print all of the pieces for these invitations. With a little trial and error I was able to match the printing to SU's Chocolate chip.

I am not even done you can see my next post to see what I worked on the month of August.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes (Retired)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Mellow Moss
Tools Used: Stamp-a-ma-jig
