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.
Wanna see what I ordered?

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