Great Job Venus!!  You are a rockstar on this wedding stuff.  Thanks for posting- it gives me encouragement that I can attempt this on my own.  How do you put flowers and palmtrees in the background?  Do you get that in photoshop?  And the ribbon down the middle, do you glue it or tie it?

Bride81 - Thank you so much for your compliments :)  the background I did in photoshop using layers.  I was able to layer the font on top of the .jpg's.  I got the palm tree from a google search.  It was actually black, but I added a blue color overlay to it.  As for the ribbon, I just wrapped it around the sleeve and secured it with a glue dot (the kind used for scrapbooking)  I lined it up so that the ends would land right under where I wanted to put the monogram square.  That way the ends of the ribbon weren't visible.


Finleya - Thank you!  The sleeve was also from her template :)


Meagan816 - I bought the paper at Archivers (a chain scrapbooking store).  BUT after I spent a little too much on this paper I realized that I could have bought very similar and just as pretty paper for way cheaper from www.paperandmore.com it is WAY cheaper...you do need to by in bulk though, but I feel it's still cheaper.  Hope that helps :)

Thanks! I am getting ready to make my STD's and I wanted to make that sleeve. 


And I ordered my paper from paperandmore.com and for everything I needed it was very reasonable.

Wow!! I am in awe of your boarding passes, they are GORGEOUS!! I only hope my STD's will come out as beautiful as yours did! And I really love the color scheme you used. It's amazing how many of us are using this idea, but for me, none of my guests have ever heard of such an idea- Which I love!!  So different and truly from the heart when you DIY =)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
