Hello Friends, How are ya? I am back … so soon you might ask? I made a promise to you to share the story…. here is the beautiful couple and I was so grateful and so blessed to have a little part in the big plan. They sent me this hours after she said YES!
Jordan had such a creative plan and everything was in motion except … the paper part. Her day started with her regular exercise class where the scavenger hunt began. Her friend gave her an envelope that let her to the next place … the nail salon where a friend surprised her & gave her another envelope. The next envelope led her to a hair salon where another friend surprised her and gave her another envelope. The third envelope led her to her final destination to a hotel … he was waiting at the hotel bar.
She was traveling via the metro so each envelope had the metro stations on the out side of the envelope and the time she had to be at each location. I am so in love with this sophisticated script and it was the perfect way to implement Jordan’s ideas. (The script is available in upper case too). Tim Holtz vintage “Things” stamp was perfect to set the time for each location.
This is what the scavenger hunt plan looked like all laid out. The shoe card I think he used later? I really wanted to used the shoe stamp on each envelope but, we didn’t have time.
Jordan’s mom and I didn’t want to write the addresses to each location … we wanted her to guess and do a math problem to figure out the full address … hahah so fun. Turns out when you are on a scavenger hunt math is hard cause you are super excited. We used a label printer for the tags… each envelope had a tag with the address “problems” to solve.
Once she met Jordan at the bar … I think he left to “go to the bathroom” but, not really. After 10 minutes or so … the bartender gave her the last envelope … the finish line (she’s a runner) and a quote that he picked out. The key was in that last envelope plus another key where Jordan was waiting with a photo album, flowers etc. So romantic right? Again the script stamp … saved us .. they look so beautiful on these bright envelopes.
These days friends know before the “bride to be” knows that she’s going to get engaged. It’s so different now but, good thing friends can keep secrets like this…. So the next day Jordan arranged a brunch and invite all of their close friends & family (another surprise). His dear mom bought a sign at the Michaels? You could barely see the letters …. soooo …
I die cut some large circles and put the letters on top so they would stand out. I added ribbon on the sides of the poster to add color and tie in the scavenger elements.
That’s the story. Did you see the engagement card I made this beautiful couple? You can see it in my last post here. Thank you letting me share this story and have a great day! Hugs, Kathy
P.S. Jordan’s mom … she is the one that showed me how to emboss … I was hooked and my love for stamping began.
