Oh, and one other thing I found out...apparently magnets do not stick to stainless steel refrigerators...who knew?!?

I loved the idea of these calendar magnets...I'm always in the kitchen trying to figure out what the date is or how many days there are in the month, etc.  I ordered a bunch of free ones thinking I would put them in our Christmas cards...

Instead, the majority of them went out with the "thank you" cards for my bridal shower attendees last week.  I ordered a couple of styles...personalized note cards:

And folded cards:

If you can believe it, the extra weight in the envelope for a magnet + the folded card (essentially the back half of the card) required double the postage ($1.18 versus .59) here in Canada!  Ughhh...had I known that, I would have save the folded cards for those thank-you notes being hand-delivered...or, would have just picked out the notecards...I preferred writing notes that way anyway!!!

I am  wondering how people have been able to upload personal pics or images you have googled for your vistaprint items? I made a pre travel brochure and theonly way I have been able to get picture of my fiance and I is by uploading them to facebook and then uploading them to the item. Anyone know how I can upload pics without having to post them on facebook first?

Log into Vistaprint and go to "My Account". On the right hand side click on "My Images" under My Resources. Then there is a link that says, "Add your photos"

 

Hope this helps!

I just finished my fans using the poscards from Vistaprint!

I just designed my ceremony program in PPT saved as an image and uploaded to vistaprint!

I also ordered scalloped edge paper from Papercircle.ca, my mom made bows and put it all on a stick to create my programs/fans!

I love how they turned out, but if did it again I would use the oversized postcards, still a decent size but the larger ones would have given me more space for the program/listing of the wedding party (on reverse side).

Wow.... SO addicting! I just received my first order from Vistaprint... actually, I got 2 orders in one. 

I got two t-shirts and a pack of return address labels that I am going to be using for our save the dates.

livepreview.aspx?Log=0&doc_id=1383910858&page=1&width=400&renderMode=3 I completely stole the idea from another bride, but I cannot remember who. I also have placed more orders (each time I get a free t-shirt offer!), so we will soon have one for FI, his best man, and both our dads.

I also ordered this hat, and I will get one that says Father of the Groom too, once I get another free hat deal.

livepreview.aspx?Log=0&doc_id=1388746346&page=1&width=400&renderMode=3

And here is a notepad I ordered. I am not sure about it yet, but it was free, so I figured, why not. livepreview.aspx?Log=0&doc_id=1387371019&page=1&width=312&renderMode=3

 

And I just ordered these today: business cards I am going to punch to make into luggage tags. I am not going to laminate them or anything, just find some simple elastic to use for people to attach. I will probably glue these onto cardstock first though, but we will see what I think about them when they arrive.

We are also ordering a few type of general beach-scene postcards (going to try to get an image of our resort too), and we will be including them with our gifts to our guests.

 

So here is the first set:

livepreview.aspx?Log=0&doc_id=1395498613&page=1&width=402&renderMode=3

 

And I have SO MUCH more left I can do! I have some designs saved, some planned... I am doing a "Game Over" t-shirt for FI, and envelopes for the save the dates, and envelope seals with our monogram on it, and a notebook for me and FI to write in during our trip. (we always journal during vacation anyway!)

I also have a couple pens saved, and I want to do 3 different styles of keychains to act as souveniers for guests. I also like the idea of using the free mouse pad or whatever as prizes for our photo scavenger hunt. 

Anyway, I have lots of time, but I can really see how this new addiction would be very dangerous! And so much fun! Thanks to the wonderful brides on here for all their help!
