           Those brochures are awesome! I was going to make some until none of our guests made reservations lol. Oh well, I still found a use for this template though!

                    I LOVE IT !!!!!


                    THANK YOU FOR SOLVING MY ISSUE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    UPDATE 01/14/10: You can read through this thread & see how I managed to make the brochures I wanted for my wedding. I tried several ways to share the template with others, but it wasn’t easy. As you can see below, I was still figuring out photoshop back then.I wanted to come back to this project and make an easy to customize template for these programs. I’ve learned so much more about working with photoshop & knew I could do a much better job now. The template is so much easier to work with than before. I even recorded videos to walk people through it. That’s how DIY wedding kits was started. Visit this link to learn about my much improved brochure template. Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.I used the vista print templates to make this. I didn't want to work in photoshop, because I use powerpoint more often. So I opened the pdf file, flattened the layers, and saved it as a jpg. I then made a powerpoint file that was 11.1 inches by 8.63 (File--> Page setup). I inserted the template jpg onto a slide. I then right clicked to change the color to washout. It also helps to trifold a piece of paper to determine what page is what.I plan on making brochures like this for a welcome letter & a meet the guests letter. As always, I'll post pictures of the real deal when they are done.UPDATE Here is the new version. I put a step by step guide with pictures for making the background on post #46, page 5. If you aren't that computer savy, I don't recommend trying to make the dark/light background- it's a little tricky. Just make the whole picture light so you can still read the text. If you want some premade backgrounds (you' will have to make your text fit in the boxes available) download it here Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.I ordered them on Feb 10th. Only $7.45 shipped from vista print. I love vista print! I'll let y'all know how they turn out.They came in! I couldn't be happier. I love them! I can't stop looking at them. Mike teased me because all 25 are the same, but I've read them each. I stuffed some in envelopes today to send to our family & friends who have booked. The quality is great from vista print. Probably my favorite vistaprint project so far. Click the image to open in full size.
