They turned it very cute for my sisters bridal shower! Although they were kind of off centered on one side of the page in order to cut out and stick them together. I was able to print out more than one with the PDF file they sent me so it helped out and was able to get enough of what I needed. They were a hit tho!

crafted and knitted little luxuries and gifts

{truth behind the buckle}
sunbuckles (or in norwegian, "sandbakkle") is a delicate norwegian almond cookie that is a christmas tradition. these special cookies are usually served starting from the advent season, normally as a midday or after-dinner treat. a tradition my grandma has passed down to me and I will one day enjoy passing down to my own kids.

{the knit}
there is something about the clicking of the knitting needles of the sprinkling of glitter and glue that just makes me tick. i love the simple joy i get walking into a craft store or buying bundles of yarn for my next project. my husband jokes knitting is for old people, but i love it. i hope you enjoy these simply made luxuries as much as i did making them.

my daughter was born in June of 2012. she is the inspiration (and model) behind all the baby hats. they are festive and simply adorable on. i'm looking forward to making many more!

{the paper goods}
i realized i love helping others make their big day a vision. i'm always willing to do a custom announcement, program, or invitation to help relieve a little wedding day stress. i also love baby announcements, birthdays, and any other festive get together. please email me with your thoughts and excitement. i'm looking forward to meeting you!

A 50% deposit is required for custom stationery. This deposit is required for your first set of proofs and will apply to your order total. Once we have designed your proofs the deposit cannot be refunded.

{ Proofing Process }

Your order includes 3 rounds of pdf proofs. The first round of proofs will be emailed to you after you have submitted your wording. You may request changes two additional times, resulting in two additional sets of proofs. Each set of proofs after the initial 3 sets will be $25.

Full payment on your order is required before printing begins. The balance will be due after digital proof approval and before printing. If you would like a printed proof approval there will be an additional charge.

If paying by check, i will not begin construction of accessory until check has been cleared.

{ Cancellation Policy }

For customized stationery that requires proofs, such as wedding invitations, save the dates, menus, programs or personalized place cards, there is a cancellation fee of 25% or $100, whichever is greater, if you cancel your order after your proofs have been emailed. Personalized thank you cards are subject to a $25 cancellation fee.

The reason there is a cancellation fee is because of the time we spend creating your custom proofs. When you place an order on our website and commit to using our service, we immediately begin working on your personalized proofs. The design process is included in the pricing of our stationery and after it has been completed we cannot refund that part of the cost.

Once you have approved your proofs and the production process has been started, you cannot cancel your order.
