Wedding Wednesday!

I think that my favorite part of weddings is the invitations…Well actually, I love the whole event, but the invitations are so awesome (: There’s so many ways to have your invitations personalized, it’s not even funny, but if you’re wanting something really different you can always look on Etsy.

I personally LOVE this shop, Inky Livie. It’s so completely different than anything else I’ve seen. You really can’t find these kind of invitations in the everyday shop. And, I figure, by using these invitations you’re going to have more guests too…who wouldn’t want to see what the wedding looks like if these are just the invitations?!

You’ve just got to visit their shop to see the other styles…they’re amazing. Really.

                    

Ps: I just noticed the above invitation is for Meredith and Derek…off of Grey’s Anatomy perhaps?…I’m such a nerd.

I was busy again last night, could have worked for several more hours, but I turned it in at 9:30. I made several more bundles of cards AND (!) the most exciting news is the above card. It’s my own art work (: YAY! I sat down and sketched it out, traced it with the carbon ink pen from my Gocco set, made a Gocco screen for it and printed several sets of cards from it! It’s going to be so exciting seeing if people respond to this design, I sure had fun making it but it’s all about what the customers think.

I stamped the back of every card with my KatelyJane stamp from Sweet Paperie and wrapped the bundle of six cards in a inch strip of paper, closing it with Glue Dots and stamping the KJ Stamp on it again.

I was also busy cutting out MORE Kj Bags and sewing them. We’re in a “not spending any money” mode right now, and I need liner for a couple of my bags…so I guess they’ll just have to wait. I’ll focus on what I have and do my Gocco art, and I should be good for the Farmers Market.

                                        

Goccoing

In crafts, etsy, selling, store on July 23, 2008 at 7:00 pm

I accomplished a couple of my goals last night, I cut out several Kj Bags (with new pocket designs!) and then worked on my Gocco printing. I haven’t done Gocco for a while so it was really exciting getting back into it! I was so bummed when I wasted two bulbs (they’re only good for one time) by loading the screen and blue filter wrong. Dang it!

I bundled the finished cards into groups of six and I’ll be selling them at the Farmers Market this weekend. I’m not sure if this is something I’ll continue doing, but it’s just a fun project I wanted to try out. I’d like to screen-print some paper for this type of thing eventually, but that won’t be for a little while. I think it’ll end up being more affordable though.

I think I’m going to price the cards at $10.00 for each set. That makes it only $1.67 per card, which I think is a huge deal for something handmade. You can’t buy generic cards for that much!

So I just found out that the business I’m working for owns a whole set of screenprinting contraptions! A drying machine, a four section press thingy, screens, paints, and a heat transfer station! YAY!! Guess who’ll be using this stuff soon! Me. And for free! How much better can it get?

Soon you’ll be seeing Kj Bags with funky images…so rad.
