Kevin - I just wanted to say thank you so much for the programs. They are

perfect. I am very pleased with the picture quality. I was a bit worried

about how the pictures would look on the recycled paper, but they are

fantastic. Also, we have gotten a lot of feedback on how beautiful are

invitations were. People loved them and already have flowers growing. They

represented me and Than perfectly. Thanks again, and I will recommend you

to my friends.

Hi Kevin,

First of all, I wanted to let you know that the invitations turned out great! We have already received a lot of compliments, and people want extras so they can plant one and keep one! We ended up tying them together with the reply card and directions with a piece of natural colored raffia and it looked fantastic.

Thanks so much,

Melissa O

I received the invitations today. They look fantastic! Thank you so much for your help!


Hello Kevin,

We received our wedding invitations yesterday and they are perfect! I wanted to say thank you for your help and your suggestions. You were right; the plain handmade paper looks best!! i have a couple quick questions before I put them together. What type of glue do you suggest using to apply the hydrangeas to the paper? Also which size hole punch do I need to use and about how long do I need to cut the ribbons in order to have enough? Thank you in advance!!

Thanks, Kevin, I've torn the first paper and constructed the first five. They look fantastic - hopefully the rest will follow suit.

If I have any questions, I'll be sure to ask.


I just got everything...THANK YOU, SO VERY MUCH!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you again!!!!!!!

Kevin-no problemo!

By the way, everyone absolutely loves our wedding invitations. Your product allows anybody on a budget to assemble unique and memorable invitations with minimal effort. My fiancé and I were just blown away by the finished product. I recommend your product to anybody who will listen! Hopefully we’ll get you some more business!


Rob and Rebecca

we received them today and think they are wonderful; thank you so much!


Wow! That was really fast. Once again thank you sooooooooo much for

your outstanding service. Already I am waiting to find another

occasion to make inviations/cards and buy more beautiful paper from

you. After the wedding I have already enrolled in card making

/scrapbooking classes where I hope to devise a million ways to use

your products in the future.

The one time that we spoke on the phone you recommended that I find a

vellum glue to stick the reception overlay on the paper. So I just

wanted to tell you that I did find an excellent spray vellum glue and

it works great. Completely invisible! Its called Creative Imaginations

Scrappers' Spray for Vellum in case you ever need to recommend it to

futrure clients. It can be found online.

Thank you!

Best regards,

Olivia C

Thank you so much, Valerie!!! I look forward to a continuing relationship with you and your beautiful ribbon!


Thank you for the e-mail and for the phone call, Valerie, and for

"stopping the presses" as it were in order to save us this $20.00! Every little bit

helps. I will look to see a $20.00 credit to my card and look forward

to receiving the beautiful paper.

Thank you so much for your great service and making sure that this special shipment is on it's way. It's for my wedding invitations that I will be sending out this weekend. I just found your website and look forward to purchasing more in the future.

I will definitely recommend your website to my friends.


Hi Valerie - Thank you for all of your help and your quick response. Peggy

Thank you so kindly for the prompt and efficient service!

WOW, you are impressive. Thank you so much.


Hello! Thank you so much! The hole puch arrived this morning. I very much appreciate the fast shipment as I have had a very special gift project on hold that I can now finish. This hole puch is perfect - exactly what I needed. And- more! - you are so gracious that you wrapped it in gift tissue. How special!

Of course, you are on my Favorite Seller list. I love your store, especially your selection of organza ribbon. I have enjoyed doing business with you and look forward to future transactions, especially with the Holidays coming around in several months.

Best Regards,

Jeanie P in Cincinnati
