Andi Help!!! Your invites are perfect! I've been procrastinating at getting mine out, but I haven't found any that I really like yet. Since we are getting married at Las Caletas too, I'd love to do something similar. How long did they take to put together? I'm not very crafty, so is this something you think even the least artistic could do? Did you do all the wording/designs on powerpoint? Any special printer? Sorry for all the ?s but I'm on a time crunch, but I'd love to do something like you did. It makes it all the more personal for your guests. Thanks Andi!!

Sure I would be happy to help! I actually ordered all of the paper at the end of August but I did not really start to work on them until about 2 weeks ago!

Trust me...I AM NOT CRAFTY either! I did do all of my designs in powerpoint, it was actually pretty easy. the hardest part was getting the measurements right for them to all slide into the pocketfold just right.

I did not use any special printer...just my mom's HP...I was pleasantly surprised on how they printed actually!

So far my guests LOVE them...they just cannot believe that I actually made them!

I have all of my templates and such, if you would like me to I can email them to you. Just PM me and let me know! If by chance you decide to do your own and use the cardandpockets.com vertigo style pocketfold then you can totally just use my templates and switch it with all of your info!

By the way what are the colors you are thinking of using?

Thanks for the info. Andi! They turned out so good, and when you said it ended up costing like $3.50/invite I was sold! I would love for you to send me your PP. If you don't mind me "stealing" your idea I would probably just change the info. and use your templates. I'm still new to this whole forum so how do I PM youhuh.gif :) My email address is brittbrodin@yahoo.com. My bridesmaids dresses are dark orchid (but they really look more like fushia). So we are going with vibrant colors. I'd like to use oranges, purples and yellows (I know, kind of all over the place, but it gives us more options). I looked on cardandpockets, but it's hard to really get a good idea on what the colors really look like. Thanks for your help!!
