    I just sent out my pre-travel brochures and thought I'd post them up here. These were my first DIY project (I have a few more in the works) and I never would've thought of them if it wasn't for all of you creative ladies on the forum. I've borrowed very heavily from too many people to list to make these! With that said, feel free to help yourself to anything about these you like.

    Any weird font is just where I changed personal info to a nonsense font.

    I used Microsoft Publisher to make these. I highly recomend it- if you're familiar with PowerPoint and Word you'll have no trouble using it. I use Publisher at work all the time but rather than go into the office on my down time to do them I just downloaded a trial version from Microsoft. I think it's worth trying this if you're planning to make up a bunch of stuff yourself- but keep in mind you only get it for 60 days. I'd upload the template but it doesn't work for Publisher- if you'd like it just PM me. Basically I just used the three fold brochure template, found a high resolution "beachy" picture for the background and filled the text boxes with a white colour set to about 60% transparency so the text would show up. Super easy! I uploaded it to Vistaprint and there you go. Vistaprint did an awesome job printing these, by the way.

        Looks beautiful. I completely forgot about Publisher, I used to use it all the time. Thanks for reminding me!

        Great job.

                They look great! I really like the background & I'm sure your guests will appreciate the map of the resort! Congrats on getting them out!
