Save The Date | Angela & Ryan

Two dear friends of mine are getting married this year. It made my day when I got both their Save The Date in the mail on the same day. They are both DIYdivas, just like yours truly, and super creative. Naturally, I just know it, they are going to have some pretty amazing wedding crafts and I am here to share them with you! SCORE!

Today is all about Angela and Ryan's Save The Date. Angela and I met at WSU, in the Interior Design program and have been friends ever since. She designed and executed the whole project on her own. This is how:

She created the design [front&back] and the face of the magnets in PhotoShop. The cards were then printed at Swifty Printing in Seattle and cut to size 4"x6". A super important note from Angela: "Don't try to buy 4x6 or photo envelopes after Christmas. Everywhere is SOLD OUT :(". She finally did manage to find envelopes at a craft store, I believe they were 5"x7".

The magnet was a very nice touch. It is currently on my fridge! She used ProMag Adhesive Photo Magnets [assorted sizes, pack of 5, $3.99 @ Office Depot]. The design was printed on 8.5"x11" Avery label paper, then put directly on the magnet sheet and cut. If your paper is tearing on the edges during cutting, you might have to cut them out individually and then stick them together.

They wanted a very Pacific Northwest look, Ryan's sister helped capture it in their beautiful engagement shoot [with freezing November winds]. Angela wore the colors of the wedding and braved the cold weather.

Their semi-destination wedding takes us to Blaine, WA. She wanted to hint at the location, but not give away the venue. It was done with a map, the inspiration for which came from here. She took a Google maps image, print screened it, highlighted the blue water in photoshop, and made a new layer to paint it solid blue. She created a modern and clean map with a bold navy color matching her shirt. Ang also designed a modern compass, different from the traditional ones, which were too nautical looking for their style. The fonts used are: Edwardian Script, Bernhard Modern, Eras Medium.

Later this week I'll share more of their lovely wedding graphics, which will include FREE PRINTABLES! Happy Monday Guys!
