Mixed Media Wedding Season Opener with Art-C

Hello, Gorgeouses!  Laurel Lee Pollard here, White Collar Crafter, with an excellent project to launch us past the Holiday Season. 

According to TheKnot.com, 39% of hopeful grooms-to-be pop the question during the Holidays, between the months of December and February. This immediately creates an excited bride-to-be, ready to prepare her dream wedding event.

One of these lovely new brides-to-be is a friend of mine. She has inspired me to share a project that will be perfect for a bridal party Cre8time event for her and her bridesmaids: “Save the Date” cards.

I am featuring a fantastic collection from a *new* brand to the market, Art-C.  Specializing in mixed-media provisions, their adorable mini bottles and fillers were just what I was looking for.

I encourage you to contact your Independent Retailer about hosting a Cre8time event for you and your bridesmaids. It’s a wonderful way to share in your excitement of your upcoming nuptials and make life-long memories with those that are closest to you. 

Art-C makes it’s world debut at the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show, being held in Anaheim, California, January 9 - 13. I encourage you to follow them on social media to see the full spectrum of amazing products they are launching!  If you’re lucky enough to be in attendance at this industry trade show, look for this logo, and tell them, “Laurel Lee sent me!”
