      Did you use your own printer at home or did you get them printed somewhere?

        SO wierd!!! They did actually change the way you edit since I made them...so that might have something to do wtih it.  If you really want that design, I can probably help you out?  Are you familiar with using paypal? Because I could send you a bill for the price and have them sent to you.  You would just have to give me the information you'd want.  I don't mind helping you out as long as you pay for them! :o)  If this makes any sense??

          It is weird! I wonder why they did that? It doesn't make sense or maybe it is because the postcards are free? I do have a paypal account and I appreciate the help!! I will just put it on hold until we have the date and all that and then I might take you up on the offer. Thanks!

              You did a GREAT job and I do agree that it was $10 well spent if that's what you got out of it.  How much was the card stock at JoAnn's?  I've been looking for paper for my invitations.

                Thanks!!  I did use my own printer -- I have a Kodak printer -- and just put it on best quality. 

                 

                The cardstock I bought from them was precut "card" size -- six with envelopes.  They were on sale for 40% for 2.99.  I didn't find any regular size cardstock there that looked like this at either Joann's or AC Moore.

                  Sorry to ask so many questions but I really would love to try them myself.

                   

                  If the cardstock was precut to card size, did you put them in the printer at that size? How did you get it perfectly centered? (As you might be able to tell, I'm had some battles with the printer and they've always won..haha)

                   

                  Also, how did you attach it to the middle? I don't see staples or anything...

                    No problem!! I actually had to create a new document in Microsoft Publisher in the size of my paper.  Then in the printer properties I set up a new custom size for the paper and just played with it until got it centered on "practice" paper.  That was for 5 1/2" x 7" paper (folded it would be 5 1/2 x 3 1/2)  THAT I could send you.  I can't send my passport template because it was made with Aylee's $10 template.  But if you use her template for the cover, you can just use a regular 8 1/2 x 11 and cut them.

                     

                    Hope that helps??
