Hi there, Thanks! This is actually my first time to post here, I’m so happy you guys appreciate it.
Hi sheila8777 sorry I don’t have a blog :(. But just to give you some details, I created all the designs and layouts first using Adobe Illustrator and then i printed everything in matte coated paper, had it laminated (matte and gloss) by a professional printing company near our place (burned a little hole in my pocket, but it was worth it!). I used chipboard to create the coasters and boxes. basically created the chipboard box first then wrapped the printouts on it. It just really takes a lot of patience and a few helpful friends :).

Hi everyone, Thanks for the nice feedback! I’m ecstatic!
@verdes: I used adobe CS2 but if you’re purchasing them now, i suggest get the latest version if you could. Adobe releases newer versions faster than they should. so getting the newest version right now would be best. which is CS4! gudluck! 🙂
@KateMW: haha, why are you afraid of Illustrator? You are right, with great imagination you can do amazing things in Illustrator! and photoshop too. 🙂
@LLauRRa: I actually got lazy with the map and didn’t want to draw my own so i just printed the actual google map! lolz. Then i just added a belt on it to keep it neatly folded.
@Everyone: I don’t have a blog but I do have a few more pics in the gallery you can just search functional invitation. or look for it in stationery. 🙂
