How To Make a Printable Wedding Invitation - Short Video
Wednesday, 02 July 2014 12:08

I just spent the morning making this short video demonstrating how e.m.papers printable wedding invitation templates work.

I really tried to keep it short and to the point and under one minute (I find I start getting bored 30 seconds into instructional videos!). Since I tend to ramble when I talk, I opted to create the spot using just text and video, with an upbeat little ditty as the soundtrack.

Hope you like it!

 
I Believe That We Will Win

#ussoccer 'I believe we will win' mini poster free download

I can not explain why I go so nuts at during the World Cup. It started in 2006 when Germany hosted, and I experienced it on the ground, first hand. I had no idea what a world party it was (how would I? being from the States). I immediately got caught up in Fussballfieber ‘Football Fever’ as the Germans call it.

I’m fascinated by Jürgen Klinsmann’s shake up and reinvigoration of American soccer. I’m also jumping up and down from afar as I read about how fans in America are getting into it. I’m also heartened by the U.S. Soccer theme ‘One Nation, One Team’. I get dismayed about how polarized America is right now, and it would be nice to see some national unity come about as a result of the cup.

I heard about the chant: ‘I believe that we will win!’ on twitter and listening to a podcast on the games. Then I discovered this ESPN ad featuring it on You Tube (which I can’t stop watching). So in preparation for tonights game, and just to add to the festivities I created the printable mini-poster above which you can download and print for free.

This year has been exceptionally exciting. So many surprises! The utter humiliation of reigning champions Spain by Holland, bringing years of domination to a close. Costa Rica surprising everybody (btw, as of today the U.S. and Costa Rica are the only remaining CONCACAF teams in the tournament). Chile almost knocking Brazil out in the round of 16 (if that had gone down, think of the political ramifications for Brazil, FIFA!) and the heartbreak of ‘El Tri’, Mexico losing a hard fought battle at the last minute to the Dutch (who I no longer support after that!)

The agony! The ecstasy! The volatility and excitement!

I heart soccer!
I believe that we will win!
Go USA!

table number ideas

I love it when my customers send me pictures of how they've used e.m.papers wedding printables.

This couple asked me for a simple customization; they just wanted me to convert the monogram table number template from a table tent into a flat card that they could insert into a frame and place on each wedding table.

Not only does help guests figure out their seating, it's a lovely wedding table decoration. Well done!

e.m.papers in The New York Times

The Weddings & Celebrations sections of the New York Times has a feature called 'Wedding Vows'. Readers are asked to submit wedding and marriage related items that have to do with the theme of the month. This month's theme was wedding invitations. Naturally I jumped at the chance and submitted our wedding invites which became the basis for our 'Garden Party' printable wedding templates.

They were selected as the starting feature! Take a look.

 
Wedding Ideas: Mexican Wedding
Saturday, 21 June 2014 00:00

I created a Pinterest board called 'Boda - A Wedding Fiesta. 'Boda' means wedding in Spainsh and nothing seems quite as festive to me as a celebration infused with all the color and exhuberance that elements from Mexican culture bring.

1. Starting with (of course!) Papel Picado banners like the ones I found at this website.

2. Keep your wedding guests warm or decorate with brightly colored mexican blankets.

3. Mexican wedding cookies were a big favorite at my wedding cookie bar and a traditional staple of Mexican weddings. Here's a recipe.

4. Our Papelo save the date templates fit right in with the theme and tie into the Papel Picado banner.

5. Cala Lilies are simple, elegant and a regular occouring visual motif and Mexican art.
