Shower Invites

We are putting on a baby shower for my sis-in-law Kristen. I really wanted to be able to do the invitations myself.
I dabble in Photoshop. I am not an expert by any means. I have experimented and learned things by just playing around. I've also taken an online free class from Jessica Sprague. I do lots if reading. The library is a great resource. I have this book right now.

I haven't had much time to look at it but plan to this week.

So, we are going with an elephant theme for the shower. I found an Etsy shop that was selling the elephants in the colors we wanted as a .png file. Perfect! I wouldn't have been able to make something on my own that cute or that fast. $10.

Then I just started playing with layers and designing the invites. This is how they turned out.

Not bad, huh?
I blurred out some if the information on there on purpose.

Then I ordered them through They cost a little extra because I ordered them as postcards so they were printed on sturdier card stock. They also have lines for the addresses.

I can't wait to start on some of the decorations!

Happy Monday!
