Edited 11/03/2011 to add: I'm thrilled to say I was one of the Top 3 Picks for the CCMC173 Challenge. Thank you for picking me ladies!
Good morning! I’m planning an Open House for Nov 11th and 12th, and I wanted to create door hangers to invite people in my neighborhood. I needed to come up with something eye-catching so people will actually read the invite, then want to come to my Open House. I also need it to be a simple project since I need about 250 of these.
I decided a Door Hanger style invite would work best. And if I created it in My Digital Studio (MDS), I’d get the hand-crafted look with a minimum amount of physical work. I can just print all the copies I need. MDS is great for any kind of mass-production!
I wanted my Door Hanger to fit 3 to a page. So I opened an 8-1/2 x 11 Landscape photobook in MDS and inserted a blank page. I added a Square Punch and sized it to 3-1/2 x 8-1/2. This gives me the correct area for designing my Door Hanger. I love the French Foliage card that comes pre-designed with MDS and used that as the basis for my design. Next, I chose Create With Connie and Mary’s CCMC170 Color Challenge for my colors and just added all the layers, ribbon, stamps, and embellishments that I worked. I finished by adding various fonts for the “You’re Invited” text. The fall leaves also qualifies this design for the Paper Players PP70 Fall Theme Challenge.
Once I was happy with the look, I “grouped” everything then copied and pasted it 2 more times on that page. As easy as that, my Door Hanger is ready to print, cut, and distribute. Oh, and the circle at the top of the Door Hanger is for me to punch a hole so it fits over the door knob.
Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions.
