Our First Gocco Experiance...

Hello! I'm back from my first bridal shower--and I will post about that soon, but I wanted to share with you my first gocco experience. For our engagement Party back in December my family had custom made invitations made and they were beautiful, so we ended up going with the same designer for our save the dates. Even though we LOVED our save the dates--we realized the cost of having her do our invitations would be VERY expensive, so we decided to look into making them on our own.

So far we have the actual Invitation, which we got designed and letter pressed at Paper-Source ( which I will show you later) and we are in the process of working on the inserts--However, we decided that with my first shower coming up we should work on our Thank You notes--hence the first use of Gocco!

^ There she is looking Beautiful! We decided to do a simple Thank you note on Paper Source Luxe White A6 paper--We Photo-copied one of our invitations, cut out the design and turned it into our "master", along with a Simple "Thank You".

^ There is my handsome FI lining up the Gocco Screen--although I was nervous using the gocco for the first time, he was so good about helping :)

^ Here I am making the copy, do you see the excitement in my eyes ;)

-Thar she is all inked up, ready to be printed!

The First copy!! I loved loved LOVED how they turned out! The design is identical to our invitations---and I love the incorporation in the Thank You Notes! As I have said before, wedding planning has made me a DIY person, I do not consider myself crafty! However, if I can handle a gocco and make professional looking material, I believe anybody can do it!

^ As you can see they started taking over our kitchen! It was a great first Gocco experience, I look forward to using it more. Next up: Envelope Liners.

Wow! How did you get that design onto the sheet by simply printing it off on your computer? I don't get it would love to hear more about it, but it looks terrific!
