You’re Invited

June 26, 2010

I know that our wedding isn’t for another, oh, almost 11 months, but I bought some invitation supplies today!  Why?  Well Cards and Pockets (which is apparently located about 30 minutes south of me in Easton, MA) was having a 60% off sidewalk sale!  For those who might not be familiar, pocket fold invitations are all the rage right now, and yes I’m actually following a trend.  I think they’re so interesting and functional! Here’s the sample that they gave us that had information on them:

(By the way, when I told Matt about pocketfolds he called them “Trapper Keepers” and asked if we would use velcro on them . . . oh boys!)

What did we get?  Here’s the main haul:

175 sparkling sapphire Pocketfolds (normally $1.38 each, on sale for $0.20 each)

A bunch of fuschia, rose, and sparkling sapphire (all metallic AKA SPARKLY!) card stock

Glue dots

and a sample packet (to play with colors!)

Total: $80.91!!  (at least a $275 value)

I am not sure what we’re going to do for printing.  We can go to a stationer and have them design and print.  Or we could design them ourselves and have them printed.  I don’t think that I want to print them myself.  Then it’s time for FUN WITH CARDSTOCK as we assemble them.

Regarding the design, I’m not sure how I want them to look.  Probably more simple than anything, with some flourish on the invite or maybe the paper like below:

We shall see.  But yay!  Some wedding crafty stuff in my house!

By the way, the sample invite came with a coupon code for Cards and Pockets.

This coupon code is good for 10% off anything purchased online July 3-4.  Use the coupon code:  sidewalk10

    Oh fun! I love the pocket invites. A few other friends have had those in the last couple years, and I like how they’re so nicely organized and put together. 🙂

      I like the organization, too. Now just to wait like 6 months before we think about putting them together.
