DIY Wedding Invitation using free graphics!

>

My daughter is getting married in November and as with most folks, she has a limited budget.  She is looking at ways to cut corners in some areas so that she can spend more with the things that are most important to her.  With that in mind, I was very excited when I discovered that the folks from GraphicStock.com are offering a one week trial membership with free downloadable graphics!  I put together some cute wedding announcements for them and would love to show you how!

I did a search for wedding and found so many fabulous ideas.  Simply click on the image that you like and download it to your computer.

I then went to Picmonkey.com and opened up the downloaded graphic.  I added some text to the top of the graphic using the Add Text icon.

I cropped the picture to the size that I liked.

I then added a border, and finished with a Doodly Heart to add a final touch!

I love how it turned out!  I could even enlarge this with my printer and make a cute piece of wall art for a nice wedding present!

So what else is there at GraphicStock?

Also under the wedding search, I found many different Wedding Invitation Sets.  These can be altered in programs such as Picmonkey.com or Adobe Illustrator to create an entire set of DIY wedding stationary, ultimately saving you hundreds of dollars.

Look at the cute graphics in other sections.  Great for craft projects, these graphics are easily printed and can be used for most anything.  Crafts like decoupage and scrapbooking come to mind.

    Hi Suzy, so how is living in a motorhome going. It can be a little close, but just think of all the stories you are going to have. Like when you left the antenna up, or how about the day you didn’t see the tree stump oh! those were our stories, but I’m sure you will have your own.
    Take care. Dianne KEEP TRUCKING
