Envelopes & Pocketfolds

When I first started populating my Google Reader with blogs, one of the first ones on there was Road to the Aisle.  Heather was a new blogger, documenting her journey through wedding planning and DIY projects.  Her blog, which was retired after the recaps of her wedding in 2009, is still popular among DIY brides all over message board communities.

I am taking more than a few ideas from her blog, as she seems to have great taste!  One of things that I am doing is pocketfold invitations.  I love the look of these and the simplicity of keeping everything together in one place.  The difference, is that I will not be making the pocketfolds, but I will be making the cards to fit inside.  I have so many other DIY projects on my plate, and while making these would likely save me money, I figured that I could find a good deal online.

I came across Cards & Pockets and they had great prices, so I ordered a few samples, and they were shipped off to me.  They arrived in the mail a few days later and looked great!  The paper that I chose had a slight sheen to it, like it was almost metallic, but was sturdy and folded very neatly.  I tested the interior pocket to make sure it would fit a lot of thick paper in it, and then I was sold.

I hopped back onto the site and added the correct number of pocketfolds, the matching envelopes, and the RSVP card envelopes I needed for the invites to my shopping cart, added a coupon (never shop without coups!), and then hit the little submit order button.

I can't wait to choose the rest of the paper and then start putting together these invitation suites!
