I finally finished and mailed our invitations yesterday!  After months of searching this forum and initially designing passport invitations I ended up going with a pocket fold invite. I have to thank the following brides for their inspiration:

I was going to make my own pocketfolds, but after the second one I was on my computer searching for a place to purchase them.  I ended up getting "almost perfect" A7 pocketfolds from www.paperandmore.com, they shipped fast and they were awesome!

 

Since we decided on Starfish for our logo I decided to tie it together with the starfish and raffia.

Here are the information sheets that I included for our guests, this gave them basic travel info, etc to help with planning.

I decided against having guests RSVP by mail, so I attached this RSVP card to direct them to our website.

The following is the list of supplies:

 

Pocketfolds - Paperandmore.com

Paper - Michaels - metallic paper

Raffia - Michaels

Turquoise paper - Michaels (12 x 12 scrapbooking paper)

Envelopes - Michaels

Starfish - Etsy 

Centering Ruler - Michaels

 

My only issue was centering my paper for the invitation, but I purchased a centering ruler from Michaels.  This was an excellent investment (especially with a 50% off coupon)!

 

So here is my finished product!

@@trbutler - GREAT job!!! I especially love the little silver starfish charm on the raffia.  :D  Very lovely touch!  I keep flip flopping on invites (to DIY or not DIY) - your post inspires me!

Hi trbutler,

I am unable to see any pics beause I haven't reached my limit of comments. I was wondering if you could send me the pics, templates, and any other information I would need? I would greatly appreciate it. My email is colek_64@hotmail.com

 

Thanks so much

Did you design your own logo or did you find it somewhere? I love the aqua/fuchsia look (my colors too) and the starfish!
