We have two rules when it comes to wedding DIY. Number one, it must be manageable; and number two, it has to pass for professional grade. That’s why we love this little envelope liner project recently featured on Southern Living’s The Daily South blog. These liners are simple, quick and you’d never be able to tell they’re DIY!
Envelopes (we used Euro Flap Style A7 envelopes from Paper Source) One piece of heavyweight cardstock Paper for lining Scissors Ruler Tape runner or glue stick (we used Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive)
Make the template. Take an envelope and trace it onto the cardstock to make your template. Cut the template out, then trim 3/4 of an inch from the bottom and 1/8 of an inch from each side. This will ensure the liners can easily be inserted into the envelopes.
Trace the liners. Trace the template onto the back side of your envelope liner paper. Cut out the liners.
Put it all together. Insert the liners into your envelopes, folding down the envelope flap with the liner inside before securing it with the adhesive. Use a tape runner or glue stick to secure the liner to the flap.
Let’s get real. Right up there with boating, beaching and outdoor dining, our favorite “ushering in summer” activity has to be lifting a glass of rosé. Maybe it’s because rosé is just that refreshing or maybe it’s because we want to be cool. Either way, we’re toasting this soft-colored, crisp-tasting vino with an adorable shoot we styled recently for Bayside Bride. Cheers!
Phew! Pardon us as we take a breath after five months of nonstop hustlin’! Lots has happened at Kari Rider Events since the start of 2015, namely the opening of our first storefront in downtown Easton, Maryland. As if opening a studio wasn’t time consuming enough, we threw ourselves into a full rebrand—logo, website and all. It needed to be done, but that didn’t make things any less stressful. (All the wine we drank helped a little, though!)
One of our biggest priorities during the rebrand was to develop a set of cohesive images for marketing and promotional purposes (a no-brainer, being as we work in an image dominated field). Inspired by the cool grays and brilliant whites inside our light-filled studio, we styled a set of images that perfectly capture the understated elegance inherent to Maryland’s Eastern Shore—thanks in large part to the fabulous photography skills of Mrs. Krista A. Jones!
