I’ve never had any intention of doing my own. Is that bad? LOL. I’m not a DIY-er at all. I get this from my mom.

I’m actually considering doing a semi-DIY route with the “just print your info” invites from Michaels. I’m a writer and graphic designer by day and I’m feeling pressure to have PERFECT and AMAZING invites. Everyone just “can’t wait” to see what I’ll make- this way I can just say I didn’t have the time/energy and wanted to do it cheap.

Look … I recognize my talents and shortcomings and making invitations is definitely a shortcoming of mine!  Embrace it and get someone who can design what you love!

Hehe… I was going to make mine… i swear!  but my mother had it in her to go get them traditionally done… chinese style which is usually on some sort of red paper with gold lettering… when she said she wanted it i was really relieved because making my own seem like a LOT of work!  ^_^

I shudder at the prospect of making mine…but we have a website, so it’ll be low-key, no pocketfolds or anything…hopefully minimal cutting…and we’ll have them professionally printed. hah  This is all in hopes that it saves us some moula!

I am semi-DIY.  I also loved all of the cool designs from the designer bees and I was envious.  I attempted to design and it was a big FAIL.  I opted to work with a company that could do the design and printing and all I had to do was tell them what I wanted.  I am a paper junkie though so I couldn’t give up the chance to do something with the invites.  I am adding a belly band with embossing and envelope liners.  I am also creating some fun wrap around labels.  I feel like I am still getting that DIY fix but get the nice professional look I was striving for.

Pfft. I could never in a million years been able to pull of doing my own invites. I payed someone to do mine, and a pretty penny to do so if I might add!
