Artifact Uprising Wedding Invitations (with discount code!)

envelope linersAfter dipping our toes into some wedding planning, we can’t seem to get enough! Invitations are often the first impression of a couple’s upcoming nuptials and set the tone for what to expect at their wedding. This might seem like a lot of pressure, but it’s the perfect opportunity to get your vision across! Artifact Uprising just released their new wedding invitation line and it is beautifully simple and modern. There are so many wedding invitations out there on the market right now, and it can be hard to narrow it down. It’s hard to stray from too-trendy designs. The no-frills designs of Artifact Uprising make for classic invitations that can be customized with 15 different designs to ensure there’s an option for every couple out there!

Want to customize your invites even more? Staying true to our Lars’ aesthetic, we wanted to add a bit of art to our invitations with some painterly envelope liners. We love the color and texture the envelopes add to the timeless invitation. So if you’re in the market for some wedding invitations, make sure to check out Artifact Uprising and download our printable envelope liners! It makes opening an envelope much more fun.

DIY Summer Flower Garland

DIY summer flower garland

Guys, this week is full of exciting announcements! We’re kicking off with this garland inspired by our products designed for Alexis Mattox Design. The grand reveal of all our party products for AMD will be on Wednesday, so stay tuned! The florals we used were so fun and poppy that we needed to make a garland inspired by the wrapping. This is the perfect decoration for all your summer soirees, and pretty enough to keep up all summer long! Made with crepe paper and cardstock, it’s a great project to work on with friends or spread out over a few days. Summer days are meant for crafting, am I right?

In other news, this garland also goes perfectly with our new line of Chatbooks! Next week, all six of our designs will be available during the Chatbooks summer sale! You’ll see covers using the three patterns from our wrapping paper, as well as three new corresponding ones! We can’t reveal all the fun yet, but make sure you get your pictures ready so you can cash in on some sweet deals next week over at Chatbooks! These patterns will only be available for a limited time, so don’t dilly dally. DIY summer flower garland

DIY catch all

I did a study abroad program to Europe with my art history program in college. At a quaint market in Paris, I found a lovely catch-all made from a mustard-colored floral fabric that I gave to my mother that’s been sitting on our coffee table holding our dinner napkins ever since. I’ve always loved how such a small piece of lovely fabric makes such a big impact and I found it to be a great way to use up fabric while maintaining organization. I’ve been wanting to make one for myself ever since and finally bucked up to do it. So follow along to create your own DIY catch all!

I found some lovely fabric from our local fabric and craft store and a complementary solid and Becca, our resident sewing-guru, got to work with an easy method for assembly. Take a look at the instructions below!  Read on →

Scandinavian Garden Wedding

Wedding Day Recap Becca here with a post-wedding recap! It’s been over a month since we got married and we just got all our pictures back from the big day! Scrolling through pictures, I was able to relive every moment and found myself smiling the whole time. Thinking back on our wedding day, it was everything I had imagined. And seeing my vision come to life made me absolutely giddy! I am a firm believer in utilizing your resources when it comes to wedding planning, and I could never have done it without so many talented and gracious people.

Creating an inspiration board early on in the wedding planning process was essential for me! Not only did it help me identify and narrow my focus for what I wanted, it was also extremely helpful to use as a reference for those contributing. Everyone understood the look I was going for and so many people pitched in to make it happen! Never underestimate the power of help.

Here’s a peek inside the reception!
