**Alli's Prize Patrol Alert**

I can hardly believe we are just hours before the new release! It has been so much fun creating an assortment of wedding day goodies. I have some exciting things in store for today, in fact, two prizes!!!! Before I tell you about them, I wanted to first share the winner of the Spring Moss inkpad. Random generator generated number 3!!! Congrats goes to: Elizabeth S. in mid Michigan who said:
I love the new Spring Moss color also. I have not tried the candle yet, so I would like to try that technique first. Again, no weddings in my future, but my anniversary is April 20, 1991, which means next month will be our 17th anniversary - time flies when you're having fun :) Thanks for the inspiration.
Elizabeth, can you please send me your snail mail and I will get this ink out to you!

So are you hoping to win big?
I would like to award one lucky reader all of my designed items!!! (I have a few more to add yet)

This will help you on your way to CASE my projects and make your own in preparation for the big day. If you are a hands on learner than THIS is your chance.

How do you enter? To be eligible, you need to be preparing for a wedding in 2008-2010 and you need to leave me your wedding date and tell me why you need this ensemble. Parents can enter for their kids *smiles* The winner will be announced in the Papertrey Forum (release party) this evening--earlier rather than later!!! I hope to see you there because I will be awarding some bonus chances to get your name in for this draw.

If you don't qualify for the above prize I PROMISE...I still have a FAB prize for you too. I will be listing the prize in my afternoon post and you only have until 8:30PM PST to enter. So PLEASE make sure you pop by again before you head to the PTI forum. I will announce the winner shortly after 8:30 PST in the PTI forum and then on my blog.

Wow! I love your work! My wedding is in March 2009 (tentatively March 21 - I'm slow in deciding). I think your ideas are amazing and will be casing some of them! I already followed your instructions for creating an invite (although I resized it a little). I love your ideas for simple cards! Definitely a must need when creating 100+ cards!

Thanks for inspiring and thanks for the chance to win!

Oh my goodness... even before this contest I was super excited about tonights release! I have made wedding invitations and favors for parties in the past, I even made everything down to the table cards for my own wedding!

I have been asked to do all the paper for my neices wedding on February 14th 2009. Save a Date cards, invitations, reply cards, table cards, menus, favors, thanks you, I am super excited, especially now that PTI has been helping out! Even with the color release this month... we have choosen for her wedding pink and chocolate brown!

I was planning on sending her pics of all this stuff to help her and I decide everything but to be able to send her sample to discuss would be AWESOME!

*I* am not getting married, but my sister will be getting married in the summer of 2009 (date not quite finalized). I will be doing all of the work because she and her fiancé will be in England for a year preceding her wedding, then she's coming back to Canada to get married, then they are off to New Zealand to settle down.

Not me...but my DH business partner! They had asked me to help design cards, invites, etc... This would be amazing to have to share and help in the creative process!
You are amazing Alli! Thanks for sharing!

Mary said...

What amazing things you create!! I am entering for my daughter, but she hasn't been proposed to yet! Her boyfriend called me to see if he could get my mom's engagement ring (my mom passed away in 1982) to give to Amy, but haven't heard anything yet. Amy hinted that this fall might be the likely time. Nothing like keeping us on pins and needles waiting!! :)
Thanks so much, Alli, for sharing your wonderful talents!!

It would be awesome to have the 'real deal' in front of me while I figure this whole wedding thing out. ;)

My daughter is getting married Oct. 11, 2008. I'm having so much fun as MOB (Mother of the Bride)! I only have one daughter, and she's 28, so I plan to "do it up right"! I've designed her invitations (still need to make them sll), plan to make shower invitations, Welcome Bags for all the guests staying at the hotel, favors.... the list just doesn't end... every time I see a new idea, I add it to my list of "things to do". I think I will be making things for her up to the day of the wedding. Making handmade projects for her on her Wedding Day is a way for me to show her just how much she means to me and how much I love her. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas here... I definitely am planning to use several of them!
