    I don't bother much with parchment paper. I create the image in photoshop, then throw in some stains or whatever. It sounds like you have help already, but I'm willing to help if needed. The front of the invite could be done with some added embossing and trim. Something similar to the Halmark talking spell book.

    I'm with Britishwitch...I want to know what you put together for this party. Please share.

    Thanks for the help and suggestion, everyone!!

    Darklore, I have one of those Hallmark spellbooks, and that is exactly the thing I sort of based my ideas on.

    Scry, thanks I appreciate your giving spirit. I am so computer illiterate it is not even funny.

    Empty_W, that is a great design. I am going to shamelessly steal the inside...it is too cute, especially the part about the warts!! LOL

    I have also come across something that I think I'm going to use, and all I'll have to do is download and print...here's the link, just scroll down to Necronomicon Notebooks...I love the covers. Haunted Paper Toys

    Need help designing invitation
    Hi here is something i put together in photoshop (just the front cover, I will do a back if you would like to use this image)



    Due to the fact that my photobucket images are accesable to the public who dont use this forum, I added my watermark but if anybody requires to use this image i will take off the watermark and do a back cover (also it will be a bigger image)

    Here it is with text



    Full spellbook i decided to do a back cover lol (added a beveled edge for dimension)

Just felt like something fun to do.



    This may be a dumb question, but what program and how would you go about filling in the details of what, where, and when?

    I'm almost embarassed to ask this.

    Btw, this is one terrific idea.

    As long as you have a detailed copy of the image...and the creator doesn't mind...you simply bring it into your own graphic program and draw on top.

    Say for example...I post this image.



    The original for printing should be much higher resolution. Here's a higher resolution (4Mb) image I would use for printing.

    If you have (and learn) a good graphic program like PhotoShop, you can create different layered versions until you get what you want. Here are examples of alternate versions of the same image...

    one in gold...

    one with wings...

    If the intent is to allow others use of the image...it's nice to keep things generic.

    Note - with my image, I have created it so in such a way, that sections of it can be printed to create a book the thickness of an manilla folder...or up to one inch thick. [apologies for the long winded post]

    I use Adobe products, for text I use Illustrator, what I would do, is I would leave out the "who, where, when etc" so you could fill that in with heck, microsoft paint if you wanted to. I can tell you font and size. But you could also print it out and hand write the details.

    whilst I REALLY REALLY would NOT recommend it - you could even fill in the details with Microsoft Paint or Word.


    I may do an inside bit for my book too so that people have a choice

    Scry,

    I was thinking, though I'd have to look into it, almost turn it into a form in acrobat, so just make a pdf that they have to fill in the blanks. I believe you can embed the font. That way they could have a completely typed up piece, but it can be the info they want. I'll have to research it more.
