So excited to show my save-the-dates off!  I designed (and redesigned and redesigned!) myself & somehow managed to pull it off... almost can't believe it!  I'm someone who is always full of amazing ideas for craft projects, then has quite a bit of trouble executing them.  In other words, my brain is more talented than my hands are! ;)  But this time I really did it! =)   DSCF9872.jpg   Started with sticker paper, magnet paper, yellow note cards, gold eyelets, & green ribbon.   DSCF9882.jpg   Designed a sticker for the outside of the card & did a luggage tag design for the magnets.  Printed out 20 of each, then promptly decided I hated the flamingo on the stickers and just couldn't live with it (hard to tell here, but it was clip art & looked low quality, at least to me).  Wish I'd trusted my gut before printing out all those stickers, but I decided it was better to reprint and waste the ink & paper than to be unhappy and less than spectacularly proud to send these out.   DSCF9897.jpg   Card with sticker applied.  Much happier with this flamingo!   DSCF9898.jpg   I cut slits in the card for the luggage tag.  The cards we've handed out so far, I've had to tell friends to lift the magnet out... hope the people who get them in the mail figure it out!   DSCF9899.jpg   std.jpg   This picture is from my scanner, so the tag looks a bit blurry, since it wouldn't lie completely flat in the scanner bed.  It's perfect in person, though.      So stinking proud!  We've been handing them out in person to local friends, and I'm beaming as they open them up!  I've stood in front of friends' fridges and just stared with a silly grin on my face. =D
I love these...great job!!!

Yes, but it's a psd file, so you'll need to use photoshop to work with it.

 

I'll PM it to you since you don't have enough posts to see it here (hope you can see it through PM; not sure how that works).

Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone!  I've been extremely busy since the wedding, so quite slow to respond, but I'm thankful for each & every comment!  Reminds me the hard work was worth it! wink.gif

Love this! I was just thinking the other day about this type of DIY project for Save the dates! Glad I stumbled upon this! Thanks for sharing :)

These look fantastic! Quick question for clarification... were these magnet luggage tags meant to be applied to their actual luggage as well? Or as a save the date for the fridge? Either way they are adorable!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
