So as most of you know I have an etsy site where I have some custom Wedding invitations.
If you don’t know already it’s here. www.etsy.com/shop/WarmTidings You can also click on the light to the right of this post.
Anyway a friend at work is getting married and found an invitation that she liked and asked if I could do something like it for her. I of course said “No Problem”. We then got into the discussion of printing the invitations. Initially we were going to have them printed by a third party but then wasn’t sure if we could get the envelopes to look right and she couldn’t have all of the size cards that she wanted.
Envelopes.com came to the rescue. I could get all of the sizes that she wanted for her cards and have envelopes that coordinated perfectly. All I had to do was make sure that…
- I could size the pieces accordingly so that they printed nicely
- My printer actually was ok with such heavy cardstock.
#1 wasn’t a problem. #2 was a different story. Thank goodness I still had my backup printer for the cardstock.
So I printed everything using one printer for the cards and the other for the envelopes. Because everything was one color and I used the color of the card to supply the background it didn’t use a whole lot of ink so that was super exciting.
Using an Excel template I printed all of the guest envelopes as well so there was no hand writing involved. I also did the return address on the flap of the envelope so all the bride had to do was put them together and put stamps on. She also added a ribbon to the invitation to put them all together.
The best part about this was that the total weight of the invitation was light so she only needed one stamp on the outside envelope.
The other upside for the bride was that it turned out that she needed more than what we initially had thought and because I ordered extras it was no problem to print more for her. A task not so easy if we had used a commercial printer to print everything.
This was a super fun project and I hope to help other brides with their invitation in the future.
Also if anybody needs envelopes printed for anything please reach out. I charge $0.25 per envelope, FYI way cheaper than Envelopes.com does. 🙂
Thanks for checking out my post!!!
Have a great week everybody!
I cannot believe a year has gone by since WarmTidings opened for Business. It has been an incredible year both for the shop and for me.
The shop has evolved over the last year. From hand made cards in the beginning to now, loads of invitations for Birthdays, Weddings, and more.
The best part about the shop are the people who ask me to create something for them that they either saw somewhere else or it’s something in their head. The best part of it is that it’s another product that I can add to my site. It’s so cool to hear about other people’s ideas and it’s even more awesome when I get the rare glimpse into how my project actually made it to the party!
Thank you for your support of WarmTidings, check back often to see more and more new things. I have so many ideas I just have to get them created so that I can share with everybody.
Upcoming ideas: Mickey & Minnie themed birthday, Royal blue wedding invitations.

I know it’s been a long time and I am so sorry. I am still trying to get my act together since the move and we are STILL trying to settle in. More on that in another post…
I am excited to share the newest section on the my Etsy site WarmTidings. It’s Wall Art Quotes. In one of my various mom groups on Facebook a lady posted that she wanted quotes for her daughter’s room. I mentioned that I had a site and that I would be happy to create something for her and well this is what we came up with. (If you click on the picture it will take you to the listing. )
The best thing about digital files is that it is so easy to create exactly what somebody wants because everything can be altered. I’m excited about this part of the shop just because I have always loved quotes and I find them so inspiring. Plus it’s one of the most clicked on things on the blog. 😀
All quote prints are just $7 for any size or customization.
What are some of your favorite quotes or sayings??
Have a great rest of your day!!!!
Be back soon with all of my moving drama, the 1,000 mile journey continues….
Winter is almost here and well I am already thinking Spring. What doesn’t scream spring more than Daisies? I have added a new collection to WarmTidings all around Daisies.
- Save the date
- Other items needed for your reception, Table tents, place cards and more.
I am hoping to expand this line of items throughout the WarmTidings designs and expand the business in 2015.
Also expanding the Sample and printing options as I am trying to take them in house to keep the prices really low and the lead times really fast.
Also coming more kids party invitations and party supplies along with printing services
Please please please share my shop with your friends and family. If they are having a party or gathering I would LOVE to do their invitations!!!
Also don’t forget to like my Facebook Page The Crafty Organizer for ideas and tips for getting organized and not going crazy throughout the Holiday season and into 2015.
Don’t forget about your holiday cards. Place your custom orders today. All digital files only $5 for a one of a kind card that you can get printed wherever you want!!
I also apologize for not doing the 31 days of Christmas this year but with all of my moving (whole other blog post) it wasn’t in the cards this year. Maybe I will do something in those months that I am basically home bound once it starts snowing. And…that’s any day now. If anybody is following the news you saw that Buffalo NY got FEET of snow, not inches. Luckily for me, although I live in New York, I am nowhere near there. The snow can stay away just a bit longer
So for the real reason I am writing a blog post.
I am a little late in getting the Holiday Cards out there but here they are. You can click on the Picture below to go directly to my Etsy Site.
New for this year if you don’t want to print the cards and address envelopes. I am happy to do it for you. I just need your address list either in Word or Excel and I will get them sent out by Mid-December.
I hope you like the designs. Feedback is always appreciated!!!!
Watch for more blog posts about my 1,000 Journey. Yup, that’s still going on, it’s a never ending battle I’m afraid. Also now that we are hopefully going to be settled, at least for now, I will get some crafting done. I’m excited to share what I have up my sleeve.
Thanks for stopping by!!
So sorry friends that I didn’t do the 31 days of Christmas this year. We are still trying to get settled in our new home and I am still figuring out the new job. So keeping up with Etsy orders is about all I can do on a day to day basis.
With that said the Holidays are right around the corner. I can’t even believe it. So I need to get cracking on making some gifts happen because now because we live so much further away from everybody I need to get things done and shipped way earlier than usual. No more last minute gifts for us which makes me excited and nervous all at the same time.
So with that said it’s time to get my craftiness on and make some Christmas cards and start thinking about the infamous Black Friday shopping. We are excited to start some new family traditions in our new home.
So stay tuned for more exciting projects coming and as I create new things I will be sure to share them with you!! 🙂
Stay crafty people!!!
CALLING ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS
So, I’m not sure if this is okay, but I will try anyway. I am looking for some photographers that have taken some pictures of weddings, babies and children so that I can use their pictures on my etsy site. While, I think my husband and I look fabulous, and my son is adorable, we are not a great marketing tool.
For those that haven’t checked it out yet here is my Etsy Site: www.etsy/shop/WarmTidings. You can also click ——> there is a link where it says “I sell on Etsy”
I create a bunch of different invitations for birthdays, birth announcements, and weddings, but clearly you can see the pictures don’t help.
Case in point (Yup that’s me)
So, what’s in it for you. If I use your picture I will give you free advertising in the listing with all of your information, you can even leave your watermark on the picture, if for some reason it get’s cropped out, I will replace it.
I will also feature all of the photographers that I use on my Facebook page and here on the blog to help build your business.
For local photographers, I am in the New York area so if you are trying to build your business I am happy to help! My etsy site gets pretty good traffic, but I think it will get even better if I can get some professional pictures on my listings.
Be sure to check out my page. If you are interested in contributing. Please send me an email with a link to your website at: CraftyOrganizer80@gmail.com.
Also please like my Facebook Page! I’m trying to build up the business and get to 100 likes!

Thank you in advance for your help!!!! I can’t wait to see some pictures!! 😀
So not only have I been moving across the country I have continuously been fulfilling orders on my Etsy site WarmTidings (www.etsy.com/shop/WarmTidings). I can’t believe that I am up to 57 orders already and the shop has been open since March.
Along with fulfilling orders I have come up with some new designs of wedding invitations to add to my listings. I figure the more I have the more traffic I will get. So I created some traditional invitations to hopefully suite the needs of the masses. As always with my invites that colors, font and wording can be customized.
Here they are. Click on the picture to go to the site.
Next things on the list to create are some Halloween themed invites for parties, birthdays and weddings. Which actually I just came up with that idea as I was typing this up.
I also started creating invites for winter weddings. Crazy to think that winter weddings are just around the corner. Here is what I came up with.
I am also creating a super special birthday invite for a friend. So much to manage but I love it. Nothing better than being able to put your stamp on somebody’s special event!!
Hope you like the invites, as always I welcome feedback!!
Thanks for visiting!

I have been working on some new things, clearly. I also have some other great blog ideas so I’m hoping that some time will free up soon. HA like that’s going to happen, watch for a blog post about managing a busy life. 🙂
I wanted to share a new collection of invitations that I did for my Etsy site, WarmTidings. Next steps will be to create Thank yous, and other printable items available soon. So my dear readers, please if you know anybody getting married and needing invitations or anything else, I work for cheap.
Now on to the good stuff. I wanted to come up with an invitation that wasn’t really theamy, yes I just made up a word. The thing that I love about these is that I can customize the color to whatever you want it to be. The one thing I have noticed when you go to a printer or an invitation place, you are stuck with what they have and you can’t customize the wording. Or if you can customize the wording you can’t customize the color. And that’s where I come in.
I will create an invitation in less an 12 hours (typically) and send you a JPG file with the invitation to your exact specifications. You can print them yourself or I can have them printed for you and they are done.
