{diy} stamps, wishes, and thank you's..

if you are a diy bride, and you have not yet discovered the wonderful world of rubber stamps...well, let's just say..read on..

i love them. i have found so many uses for them and have found myself addicted. first off, i used them for my save-the-dates and my invites..now i will be using them for my "wishbowl," thank you notes, and sachets..check it out:

wishbowl - n. apothecary (or other fancy jar) for your guest to place wishes, advice, or other notes inside..this takes the place of the traditional guestbook. we aren't opening ours until our 1 year (paper) anniversary.

so our guests can choose from one of these cards (hand stamped by yours truly):


and place it in the jar(s):

from here.

i also used the stamps for my thank you notes..which i hope to get a head start on before the big day:


and last, but not least..if you remember, i have a ton of leftover rosemary from the confetti project...with some great advice from my readers, i decided to make little sachets for my luggage, bm's and moms:


with all the stamping madness..i think elvis (my pug) is afraid he's next!

I actually have TOO MANY stamps! I am going to put some of them on Ebay soon to clear out my stash. Where did you get the bags for your sachets?! Love them! They are very fun.

I love your "merci" cards! I don't have any stamps. What?!? I know, I'm an avid scrapbooker so I need to get on the bus!

Maybe that’s why he licks anything and everything! Elvis has Timbrophobia (Fear of stamps.) Licking his fears away one stamp at a time.

I know this is unrelated to this post, but I was wondering if you would share the fonts that you used for your invites? I absolutely love them! You are very much an inspiration for mine that I am also doing on my own!
