** I won’t lie.. I know I’m a little ahead of myself. After all, the Mr., and I haven’t even started visiting venues! **
Anyway, the dilemma:
I’m the kind of DIY bride that wants to get things started (i.e. templates created), so I won’t have to worry about them at a later date. Things like the venue or date I’ll input into said templates may vary, but that’s okay.. I’d just like to have the general outline started, so I can go back, and revise later, once things are hashed out.
That being said, I really wish I was a whiz with Photoshop!
You see, ever since I came across Miss Poodle’s DIY invitations, I knew I had to make them, myself. Sure, I wouldn’t duplicate the sewn details (I’m not that crafty), nor would I use the exact wording, or fonts, but the general idea of the tri-fold brochure, turned booklet invitation really appealed to me. It’s something different than I’ve ever seen from friends, or family, and I love that she incorporated the rip-out R.S.V.P. (which I already have my own idea for, if I ever master this thing)!
I’ve tried, and tried to make my own template for this adorable invitation, but I just can’t seem to get the margins, or spacing right (damn, my lack of computer knowledge.. but, give me a break–it’s been *cough*12 years*cough* since high school, and I know not everyone has the memory of an elephant!).
So, ladies, can any of y’all help?
Or, what about some of your DIY failures? Let me know I’m not alone in this time of FAIL!
