    Hello All! I started creating Monograms in Powerpoint last week for my passport save the dates. I created each monogram on a seperate slide. I tried to group all of my objects together to use them on other documents but the option is grayed out. Does anyone know how I can group all of the objects in each slide to copy them to my passport and invitations??? Any help is appreciated.

        I love your hibiscus flowers.  We used them as well. I saved my monogram from power point as a picture and inserted it into the template.  Then change the layout to Behind Text and you can move it around.  Good luck

            Thank You!!! I realized that's the step I was missing...saving it into the correct format. This is my first time doing something like this. I had to change soem of the textboxes in the template but it's coming along nicely!

                I'm glad I could help.  I've never done anything like this either until now.  We mailed our boarding pass invites last Friday and now we have people calling, texting, and emailing asking where we got ticket card stock.  LOL, I can almost see the expression on their faces when I tell them we cut them and did it all ourselves.  

                 

                Enjoy the process.  Remember to post your final project.  I can't wait to see them!

                  Okay ladies...I hot another snag...I created some cute swirls and trees in powerpoint to use on my passport save the dates. I'm using Aylee's template but getting them from Powerpoint to the template is a challenge. I saved them as PNG and JPEG and put them into a seperate folder. But when I get them to the template I'm unable to format them to send them behind the text. The template is mostly textboxes and I removed the shape fills and shape outlines from all of the boxes but unable to get my images in the background. Can anyone help with this?

                      This will come in handy when I start on my project!
