Our Brand New Site!

June 1st. 2009 by Abby Larson | Filed Under | 80 comments

Taaa-Daaaa! The secret is out of the bag! We have a brand spanking new site and man oh man, are we excited!

As I’ve been blabbing on and on about weddings galore over the last few months, my loving husband and the SMP tech guru has been working furiously behind the scenes to put the finishing touches on our new site. With a pretty new logo, a clean and beautifully organized design and so many new features on the way, we are bursting with pride. Literally.

And, since we can’t break out the bubbly with all of you, we thought that we’d pony up a few incredible features today…a real wedding that will make you swoon, a DIY project that will definitely make your must have list…oh and the BIGGEST GIVEAWAY we’ve ever done!

We are being purely evil in making you wait to hear the details on our latest giveaway (and when I say big, I am definitely being modest. It’s bigger than big…it’s HUGE). So, to ease the pain, we are sharing an absolutely perfect new Favor Box designed by the fabulous Kathleen of Twig & Thistle.

Kathleen is the queen of all things DIY fab, so it’s no wonder that we’d kick off this week with one of her darling designs. I am loving the sweet simplicity of this favor box, perfect for some handmade truffles or a baked treat. You can download the template right here!

I am so excited about today’s first post. In an effort to bring a splash of style to your wedding, we have recruited the help of our FAVORITE blogger and DIY editor, Kathleen of Twig and Thistle to design some favor packaging that you can literally print on your home computer, fold right up and use to house whatever your favor may be!

All you have to do is download this template and print them on 8.5″ x 11″ card stock (we like the 80lb card stock that Paper Source carries) using a full color printer. You’ll also need an x-acto knife, a bone folder, a ruler and a bit of tape to secure them shut. This project will use up a bit of ink which is where most of your cost is, but if you are having a small-medium sized affair, it’s a no brainer!
