Here is my basic invitiation design. I started with a kit and landscape printed the invites and reception cards. I used a simple graphic stamp from Joann’s in the wedding colors to tie the kit in with the rest of the paper I purchased. I’m using simple 4Bar cards and envelopes from Michael’s for the RSVPs and scrapbook paper with a Martha Stewart letter stencil for the belly band. I bought my outer envelopes from jampaper.com.
What do you think? Anyone else use a kit to start or a stamp as a motif?

Thanks! I’m glad the pics showed up for you ladies, I’ve been having trouble getting pics to show up in my posts lately. Kits are a great way to start. I just tried to start with one of the simplest ones I could find, that way it didn’t necessarily look like the kit was designed to be a specific way (like kits w/ bows or vellum).
Not to mention, using a kit was super cheap! I got the kits (3 kits for 150 invites) for $30.00 at an Office Depot store closing sale. The outer envelopes were the most at $61.00 for 125 envelopes, and then the miscellaneous items from Joann’s and Michaels (RSVPs and stamps) were about $28.00. That’s a total of $119 for all my invites, not including printer ink and stamps (which I use on a regular basis anyways.) One of the biggest savings of my planning so far!
