Today's Project: Re-Vamping Boring CD Sleeves

I'm sure you've seen this done before, but I'll give you the run-down, and our take on it.
  • Vinyl-Looking CD's from Verbatim, via Best Buy. 60 on sale for $20.
  • 100 Paper CD Sleeves with Window from Meritline. 100 for $3.89. Free Shipping.
  • Stamps from Martha's stamp line at Wal-Mart. Complete Starter kit for $17.87. (We're using these same stamps on our beverage napkins, programs, plates and more, so we'll get our money's worth.)
  • Neat when it all comes together: 2 of our themes, if you'll remember, are Nature and Music, so it's a nice combo. Also, our programs are going to look like CD lyric booklets. Next to these, it promises to be a nice pair. Modern & Simple. I'm ok with that.
Our CD's actually have muted earth tones instead of the ivory pictured:


What the CD sleeves looked like when shipped:



Stamped! That's a friend's CD on display, as Brandon has our CD's with him out in Oklahoma. If you're curious though, google Eric Vinson. I bet he'd pee himself if he knew he got a plug just now.



And for those of you wondering what's made the cut for this little disc...
The incomplete list, in no particular order (YET):
  1. Glosoli - Sigur Ros (Processional)
  2. All I Want Is You - Barry Louis Polisar (Recessional)
  3. Seven Keys - Aqualung
  4. 'Til Kingdom Come - Coldplay
  5. Magic - Andy Davis
  6. Your Love Is Strong - Jon Foreman
  7. Slaveship - Josh Rouse
There's more. I can't remember right now! Headed to bed early tonight. Leave any suggestions you have!
