Hey all

Hope you are all well and that someone can help me out here

I am having my 30th birthday party next month and I wanted to make my own invites.

I am not very knowledgable about pcs but have access to most things at home.

I have trid using clip art but it looks shite, was going to use old and recent piccies for embarrasing invites that would be well funny.

My friend has offered to do them for me but I feel it would be more special to me if I can do it.

Any ideas??????

Look forward to your replies

Do you want to use the pc? I got card, decorated it with stick ons and stuff, then just printed the inserts with the wording and stuck it on the inside with microsoft word...

Have a look here
for a basic idea. You could jazz it up with fun sequin confetti, bright colours, really whatever you fancy.

You can print a gold/silver colour (although not metallic) - have a look in the arts/craft threads for details. Tear edges to avoid the worry of dead square corners.....a few basic papers etc.

I'll get back to you with PW and ID.

Have a good look at the other albums on there for inspiration. If you need to know how to do anything, where to buy things...just shout!
Good luck and have fun creating your very own invites!
