        Thank you :) Yep, I ordered the envelopes, cardstock & pocketfolds when C&P was having a sale. I then designed the invite, inserts, map, monogram & wrap around label and cut everything out myself. But of course with much inspiration from this board!
        I just got my sample in the mail and am excited to play around with it. What program did you use to design the text, map, etc? Where did you get the wrap?
        I just have no idea where to go from here and I really like the way yours looks.
        Thanks!

          I used Photoshop Elements to design the actual invite and my map. This website gave me a lot of help in figuring out how to make the map:
          DIY Wedding Maps

          For the inserts, I just used Microsoft Word. I formed a rectangular shape that was the exact size of each of my inserts, which helped when cutting them out b/c the lines are there.

          I also used Word to design the wrap label. I made a 2x8 shape, inserted the info, and printed them out on a whole label sheet (from Office Max) and just cut them down to the size I wanted. It was pretty simple once I figured it out :)

          Let me know if you need more info or if that even made sense lol!

              Ok, I decided I didn't like my map insert and so I redid it. Let me know what you ladies think!
