Printable Digital Invitations

I’ve always dabbled in Photoshop, and with my kids always having events that need invites, I’ve been doing a lot of digital invitation design lately. I’ve decided to offer some of these invites for sale in my Etsy shop. These are high resolution digital images that I will customize and email to you. You can then print them at home, or through a print service. Here are some examples of ones I have already created:

Right now I have a lot of girly themed ones, but I will be adding some boy ones, too! You can find all of these in the Digital Invitation section of my Etsy shop. Thanks for looking!!

Easter Milk Cartons: FREE Download & Video Tutorial

EDIT Fri 3/26: OK so the file download should now work – bad news is that it’s just an SVG file – so you Silhouette users out there won’t be able to use it 🙁 I am trying to see if there is way for me to create a GSD file for you guys too – if anyone knows of software that will allow me to do this, please let me know. Thanks!


OK I’m pretty excited about this one! 🙂

So, I found that I really like the Sizzix Milk Carton die in the latest SU catalog – but it was pretty pricey & from what I heard, the actual finished milk carton was pretty small. I wanted to see if I could create a cut file that would allow me to create my own milk cartons. Since I now have Sure Cuts a Lot software, I figured it was worth a shot to create an SVG file. I found a “sample” milk carton at the local grocery store in the candy aisle (was full of Reeses candy!) – I ripped it apart & used it as my template.

These are great for spring & Easter – but I am totally going to use these throughout the year for all Holidays. You can stuff these with almost anything – and since it’s a digital cut file, you can cut it in whatever color cardstock or paper you’d like!

They are super fun to stamp on & embellish…

I put together a video to show you how to assemble this milk carton once it’s cut. Even better, I’m offering you all a FREE download of my SVG file so you can make these for yourself. 🙂

You will need a digital cutter (such as a Cricut) and some die cutting software on your computer (such as SCAL – which is what I use). See updated info at the top for Silhouette users – as of right now, I don’t think an SVG file will work for you. I’m workin’ on it…

I am also providing a guide to where you need to score this milk carton. This is a PDF file that you can download & view on your computer to see where the score lines are. (it’s not that pretty, sorry. haha.)

Anyway, onto the download & video. To download, just right click below & choose “save file as”. You can save to your computer & then import into SCAL. (look for an option to Import–>SVG file) NOTE: after the program was loaded, I sized the shape to the size that I wanted. Mine was roughly 7.5″ x 8.25″ or so. You have  to play with it a bit to figure out how you’d like it sized.
