I started my journal thread here:
I know I'm a little slow but I thought I should share some templates that I created based on ones that I found on this website. I am especially proud of our welcome letter/brochure. The hubby and I worked really hard at it (we're both not creative types). We simply stapled it in the corner and put it in a clear, waterproof folder so that it stays clean and people can quickly glance at the itinerary on the back. It was a hit and some asked for an extra copy. If I had to do it over again (and had more time), I would have done less hotel stuff, put in some emergency information, and added more family/personal pages.
Here's the letter/brochure (to keep our privacy, I blocked faces and changed names):
Notes: Make note of any effects you place in the background. We had it open book-style and had to change up the background effect so that it made sense. Also I struggled with keeping the header the same on each page, it was easier to duplicate one template and start from there. It printed really pretty but I couldn't get rid of the white border, which doesn't show up on the computer and does when you print. If you can figure it out, please let me know.
We gave everyone DR lanyards with waterproof card holders. In the card holder we slipped this little card, here's the template:
Here's the First-Aid box template (I found the heart pic on this website so I was unable to change the color):
