      Thanks for the positive comments, girls!

      OuchieBride - the thin palm tree is a lowercase "f" in the font Tropicana BV and the palm tree in the circle is a lowercase "g" in the same font. I attached the font to my original post, so you should be able to download it and put it in your fonts file to use. If you can't download it from there, you can go to dafont.com and download it.

      Kelz & Finsup - For the sleeves, I folded the heavy weight paper that I wanted to use in 3rds (use a scoring tool for this - like the fiskars rotary cutter that I showed a picture of - it makes it SO much easier to make the lines straight). Then I used my Fiskars cutting blade to slice an "insert pocket" into the middle section of my folded paper. I made the cut slightly diagonal, because I liked that look best, although you could make the cut straight if you preferred that. Then I used hot glue to glue down the ends (top, bottom, and side). Don't glue the inside fold, because then you may have problems with the ticket fitting in straight. I used a bone folder (you can get one at any craft store - it looks kind of like a butter knife) to smooth down the edges that I glued. Then to finish it off, I tied rafia around the middle. When I took it to the post office to mail, the lady told me that because there was a knot in the middle of the envelope, it might get rejected by the machine, but as far as I know, everyone received their Save the Dates already. So I guess the lesson from that is to just try to keep the knots small.

                I LOVE your save the dates!! They turned out so nice...love the colors. Did you buy the Fiskars Trimmer at Staples?

                  shanelle - I actually have NO IDEA what I'll do for the formal invites... I'm actually kinda scared to think about it. (I hate making decisions! .... they're just so... final.) I'm sure I'll spend countless hours on here searching the forum for inspiration.

                  Jenna20 - I actually bought the Fiskars Trimmer at Michaels. I'm not sure if Staples carries it. It was about $40 at Michaels, but just get one of their 40% off coupons and that drastically reduces the price. (Although it is TOTALLY worth the $40)

                    I think you did a great job on your STD's. This is exactly what I wanted to do with my invitations. We are having a airplane themed wedding at the American Airlines museum in an airplane hanger. So I was so excited to see what you were able to do. Congratulations on the great job that you did.
