Good morning sweeties,

since yesterday I am on strike because of earthquake. I know the house where I live is safe, I know what to do in case of earthquake and it is not the first earthquake this year. But yesterday morning I was tooking a shower when the house trembled. And then while the pasta was on the fire, another strong shake. And another.
So I decided to go to the park, fortunately it was a sunny day. I slept very bad, now I can't calm down, so I am waiting the washing machine finish its work and the I will go out profit by another sunny day : pilates and the study in the park..and maybe some rows of crochet.

Have a nice day!

Wedding invitations #2

I thought maybe you would like to know what I used to make my invitations...I mean all the things. So I took some other pictures.

I went in a stamp shop and I asked if they could make the "grande giorno" stamp for me. The outside part is in plastic, and the stamp is made of silicone and it cost 14 euro.


In the same shop where I bought recycled paper and envelopes, I also bought the heat gun, powders and silicone moulds. 

The heat gun

Here you can see the hearts plant and the heart I used on the cards

To use them  you have to put them on a rigid base, I bough this plastic base, but you can use also something like a ruler. 

Red powder (Aladine) and  the white one (Artemio) are embossing powders, then embossing glue tone on tone (Top Boss Watermark) 

These are all the things I used to prepare my weddings invitations. 


Last year I bough also this silicone stamps because I think I can use them in future, the theme of this package is "hand-knitting" I can not buy it ! 

Have a nice day and week!

Wedding Invitations

Hi Everybody!
We had a very fizzy nigth, with an earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter scale! Today in the afternoon another one measuring 5.1... Stop it please!   

I told you I will post my wedding invitations, I think it's time to do it : 

I made 3 cards, one for the ceremony, one for the restaurant (very simple, not showed) and one for the confirmation (well, our guests can simply send us a mail  but it was funny :-) )

To make the white and red part I used a "magic powder" :
First of all I put the glue on the card with a  in - relief silicone mould

Then I put on the glue, the powder 

Then I heated up (?) the mix of glue and powder with a special dryer in the shape of a pen and voilà ! 

Do you like our recycled paper invitations? 

I wish you a wonderful week! 
See you soon (well, I hope soon) 
Kisses from Italy :-)
