Alternative

Alternativa

Hello again,

Have you wondered how to mail a card that has bows and other staff which add thickness to it? I know, you can always box them, but isn’t it nicer to have alternative? What would you say about a thick envelope? I call him „volumic” – it’s like a box that opens as an envelope.

V-ati intrebat vreodata cum trimiteti prin posta o felicitare/invitatie ce are funda sau alte chesti ce adauga grosime acesteea? Stiu, le puteti oricand pune intr-o cutie, dar nu ar fi dragut sa aveti si o alternativa? Ce ati spune despte un plic gros? Eu ii spun „volumic” – seamana cu o cutie ce se deschide ca un plic.

Here’s one that I made to contain Ana Maria’s invitation.

Iata unul facut special pentru invitatia Anei Maria.

Hugs and kisses,

Pupici,

Gabi

Perfect Plum

Violetul perfect

I know I am really behind with the posting, but I have been so busy lately that  I haven’t had the time to write.

Stiu ca sunt tare in urma cu postarile, dar am fost atat de ocupata in ultima vreme ca nu am avut timp pentru a scrie

Back to Julia’s invitations now. Her quest for the perfect invitation ended a few weeks ago. Perfect plum is the result of great team work and collaboration between handmade designers. A special thanks to Corina who has supplied the embossed borders.

Inapoi la invitatiile Iuliei acum. Cautarile ei pentru invitatia perfecta au luat sfarsit in urma cu cateva saptamani. Perfect plum este rezultatul muncii in echipa si a colaborarii intre design-erii de handmade. Un multumesc din toata inima as vrea sa-l adresez  Corinei care ne-a furnizat benzile embosate.

Till next time,

Pana data viitoare,

Hugs and kisses.

Pupici.

An invitation to define you

O invitatie care sa te defineasca

I really think that your event invitation says a lot about you an also about the event it self. Take my latest for example: bright colors, magnificent combination, so fresh and daring, so simple and yet strong, decided like the motto under the ribbon, with a message that you can’t ignore that gives you something to think about: AMOR VINCIT OMNIA! (Love conquers all!) . So much like the bride and groom I might add. That is an event I would want to attend.

Cred cu tarie ca invitatiile pentru un eveniment spun multe despre gazda si despre evenimentul in sine. Ca de exemplu ultima mea invitatie: culori indraznete, o combinatie magnifica, atat de revigoranta si indrazneata in acelasi timp, simpla dar puternica, decisa la fel ca motto-ul de sub panglica cu un mesaj pe care nu-l poti ignora si care iti da ceva de gandit: AMOR VINCIT OMNIA! (Dragostea invinge totul!). Atat de asemanator mirelui si miresei.Acesta este int-adevar un eveniment la care mi-as dori sa particip.


So you see my point. Don’t settle for the next best thing. Make your invitation your own and have the courage to make the statement you need with it and so, your guests will be trilled to participate in such an event.

Intelegeti voi, nu trebuie sa va multumiti chiar cu orice. Faceti ca invitatiatia voastra sa va apartina cu adevarat si aveti curajul sa transmiteti astfel mesajul dorit, iar invitatii vor fi incantati sa participle la un astfel de eveniment.


Where to find such inspiration you might ask. Well, everywhere. Look around you and gather all the things you like. Fabric, flowers, pictures… everything. Put them all together and form an Inspiration board – if you don’t have the time you can find plenty on the web already made. You can sort by color and have one you like in no time. For example this invitation  could have been inspired by this Inspiration board:

Unde sa gasiti inspiratie, puteti intreba. Ei bine, peste tot. Uitativa in jur si stangeti toat e lucrurile care va plac. Bucati de material, flori, poaze… de toate. Punetile impreuna si alcatuiti o fotografie inspirationala – daca nu aveti timpul necesar, gasiti o sumendenie pe net deja facute. Puteti sorat in functie de culoare si veti gasi una care va place numai decat. Inviatia de mai sus poate cu usurinta sa fi foat inspirata de aceasta fotografie:


But no, this time we didn’t use an Inspiration board but an inspirited bride, who took one of my invitations idea and made it her own. The result: an invitation to define her, her future husband and their event.

Nu, de data asta nu am folosit o astfel de fotografie pentru a ne inspira si doar am avut parte de o miresica inspirata, care a transformat una din ideile mele intr-o invitatie care sa-i apartina. Rezultatul: o invitatie care sa o defineasca pe ea, viitoarul ei sot si nunta lor.


Message for the bride: All packed up and ready to deliver.

Mesaj pentru mireasa: Toate impachetate si gata de livrare.

See you.

Pe curand

Love conquers all!

Since 18th of March was Blogger’s Day of Silence, here is my yesterday news:

Cum 18 Martie a fost declarata   Ziua tacerii pe blog-uri, iata stirile de ieri:

AMOR VINCIT OMNIA! – Iubirea cucereşte totul!

The motto for my roman bride. Short, concise and yet so strong and powerful.

Motto-ul unei miresici in stil roman. Scurt, concis si totusi atat de intens si puternic.

I especially liked the idea of putting the motto under the ribbon not too obvious for the negligent eye.

Mi-a placut in mod deosebit ideea de a pune motto-ul sub panglica pentru a nu fi prea evident ochiului neatent.

…and because the liquid adhesive did not do the trick I made myself some adhesive ribbon. This way it all came out straight – as you can see :).

… si pentru ca adezivul lichid nu dadea rezultatele scontate, mi-am confectionat niste funda adeziva. Astfel totul a iesit cum trebuie – dupa cum se poate vede 🙂.

My end of the week bridal update: 250 envelopes done – next step: invitations and RSVP.

Informatii actualizate la sfarsit de saptamana pentru miresici: 250 plicuri gata – urmeaza: invitatiile si cardurile de confirmare..

See you.

Pe curand.

Gabi
