An e-mail has been sent and she has 48 hours to respond before a new winner will be chosen by random.org.

Thanks to all those who enter and don't forget to check out Storkie for all your party needs!

I am really big into parties and making a big deal out of them.  Anyone who knows me knows that I go that extra length in ensuring every details is as perfect as I can get them and I spend hours looking for the perfect products to compliment my parties or special events.  I usually plan months ahead of time for Christmas and I'm currently planning my daughter's baby shower at the same time.  I had the opportunity to review complimentary Christmas cards and I liked them so much that I ordered baby shower invitations and photo stamps to match from Storkie

The product I chose to review was hard to decide as the styles were plentiful and all were appealing.  I chose the Christmas Cards Inventations due to the style and assortment that appealed to my wish for elegance this year with a twist of personalization and a huge "wow" factor.  Out of the 46 styles in this category alone, I chose the Rudolph Holiday Wrap and Photo.   The photos slip into the side pocket and can be fastened with an accompanying Glue Dot.  

The creation process is very easy and effortless.  When you create them, you have a sense of accomplishment as you truly did personalize and create something that reflects your personality.  Once you select the style of card you want, you click on "Click to Customize."  The next steps are equally as easy:

  1. Choose the pocket color (14 choices)
  2. Choose the inner pocket color (20 choices - some at additional costs)
  3. Choose the pocket seal color (10 choices)
  4. Choose custom printing or no printing
  5. Enter Family Name and Family Members
  6. Upload photo
  7. After entering the iDesign area, you choose the layout of the font, font, color, size and any other editing needed for the wording and the photo.
  8. You can choose to undo an action or start over with ease
  9. You have the choice to review the final product or entrust Storkie with the view and provide any special instructions.

There are also recommended items shown to help compliment your purchase.  The process was very easy and seeing the results in real time helps to make the decision easier.

The cards were just as seen and are beautiful.  They are made of high quality, durable card stock with elegant lettering on another piece of card stock that is inserted.  For additional costs, you can have the cards assembled or you can assemble them yourself and you can also choose matching custom printed envelopes.  The choices are plentiful and I like how Storkie provides a cheaper choice for those on a budget and the works for those that don't have to be as concerned with the money factor.  I was very pleased with the photo quality as well.  Every step of the process is quality driven and the customer service is just as good.

The other items that I purchased myself because I really liked the products and customer service were baby shower invitations.  White Shimmer Foldover with Satin Ribbon are both beautiful and elegant.  Priced at $2.29 but are well worth it again due to the quality and beauty of each card.  Just like the Christmas cards, you can have them assembled for a small fee or assemble them yourself.  For these, I did pay the extra cost to have the envelopes addressed to add to the pretty factor.  I also purchased matching photo stamps to add to the joy of our first grandchild.  When you create your cards at Storkie, they provide wording ideas to help the process be even easier.  It's so easy and the results are worth the minimal effort to create.  Storkie even has customer service available to contact before you order if you have any questions at 1-800-771-7867 from 8 am until 7 pm (EST).

Storkie also provided detailed assembly instructions for each set of cards and assembly was just as easy.  My daughter's fiancé was reluctant when he saw the invitations online but when he saw them in person, he loved them.  He thought they were beautiful and elegant and caught the essence of their first born.

MagneticMessenger.com Invitations and More Review

I received these very cute samples of invitations and thank you cards from MagneticMessenger.com today.   I received three but these two were my favorites as I liked the simple picture of the doggie with the personalized photo option.  I also like the matching thank you cards to touch up a nice theme.

The cards are a nice card stock that aren't too heavy and have a slight gloss feel and appearance.  You can choose many types to include magnetic invitations that have a small strip on the back that doesn't weigh it down and it's the perfect reminder for the party to be.  What grandparent or loved one wouldn't want a darling picture of their little one on the refrigerator?

The great feature of MagneticMessenger.com is they have products that cover any event from bridal showers to save the date to birth to christening to birthday to holiday cards with much more!

All products are customizable and are digitally printed.

The Save the Date magnets are full postcard size and come with envelopes for mailing.  There is a beautiful, elegant variety to choose from.

They have a wide assortment of birth announcements with magnets on the back and envelopes to mail.

The prices are extremely reasonable and come in a full 3.75" x 5.75" postcard size.

You receive your proof back in about 24-48 hours which is important since sending out your announcement is vital to any new mom!

Added Bonus:  A portion of proceeds benefit a Woman's Place Ministries whose mission is to protect and PRESERVE the sanctity of all life.
