Do you have big plans for the 4th of July this year? We have two events happening with family and friends. An early morning pancake breakfast and then in the evening a fireworks block party! Many people all across the country will be celebrating in similar ways! We thought it would be fun to come up with an invitation that can be used online as a jpeg, or to print off and add your own details to.
PicMonkey is a great place to design your own invitations and flyers for your own needs. They are who I used for this July 4th invitation. To add your own details on the computer, I would upload the jpeg to Google Drawing and use texts boxes to add your details. You can also size the invitations to your own needs. Then, just print! You can print them on white card stock, or do what I did and print them on regular paper and glue onto colored card stock. Just use your paper cutter (I have this one) to cut everything to the right size.
I am going to give you a couple of choices of ways to print the invitations, plus a pdf. You can always just add your info and then upload the flyer to your Facebook page about the event, or print it off and hand it our without any card stock at all. Or, another choice is to just print off the blank invitations and write in your information by hand.
Another event that we are going to try doing this year is Christmas in July. We love getting together with extended family and having a Christmas craft day, but it is always so busy for everyone in December that we haven't been very consistent about it. Since there is even a week in July labeled "Christmas in July", we've decided to take advantage of it. I've even composed little poem for these invitations!
The files for these invitations are available on our subscribers only page. go ahead and subscribe today and get access to all of the fun and useful things that are free to print from that page.
Be sure to check back over the next couple of weeks as we share more ideas for the Christmas in July event!
Have you had a chance to listen to our first podcast? If not, go to our Cover to Reel page and give it a listen! We have just recorded our second one, so be on the listen for that!
Have fun planning your summer/July events! If you have any great ideas for Christmas in July, we would love to hear them as we are still adding to our plans! Thanks!
I know that I didn't talk about food today, but this special Panna deal is to pass by and I wanted to let you know about it!
This year, Panna earned both a James Beard Award and an IACP award. To celebrate, they're offering a 7-day free trial (cancel anytime), then 50% off a year's membership! It is so much fun to cook with these famous chefs!
