These babies were sent out in the mail 9 days ago in all their glory; RSVPs started rolling in on Monday after the long weekend (I have received 18!). I definitely scored inspiration from 2 different invitations that were featured on snippetandink’s blog- both in January.
I was so happy and proud to have them finished, I wasn’t thinking that any DIY project was going to top these- and maybe nothing will, but I already have a head start on my programs and I am loving them almost just as much!

These are fantastic! Good job. They look professional. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of my DIY invites either. It’s just too fun to show off your handywork.

Wow, nice job! Where did you order the paper from? Did you do everything by hand or were the graphics ready for you to use?
Also, how did you do the map?

Thanks to all the compliments, bees! You know just as well as me that it is so nice to hear after a long, strenuous DIY project!
@shortcherriez: All of my paper products were ordered from Paper Source in beet, ecowhite, and silver. It is hard to see in the photos but the silver paper is backed on the ecowhite enclosure with PS’ white swirl platinum vellum glued over it. The purple polka dot paper (dotted washi) was purchased from Envelope Mall.
I created all graphics from scratch in Microsoft Publisher (for Mac). I have never used Publisher on a PC but from opening it at work a few weeks ago it looks easier to use than the Mac version. The map was also done in Publisher; I had Publisher open on one side of my screen and a browser with Mapquest open on the other half of my screen. To create the map in Publisher I just eyed Mapquest and used the "Curve" drawing tool, editing as I went.
