I love your welcome folders! The labels turned out great! I have a cricut and I love it, but sadly I do not have a sticker maker lol I don't think that I commented on this earlier, but your dress looks really pretty on you

I love the tags and welcome folder! They're absolutely fabulous!

We've been looking for folders, where did you get yours?

Thanks everyone!

The welcome folders are from Office Max - they were $0.39 each.

I bought some other folders for the kids reception activities - poly 2 pocket folders - in pink and teal/blue - they are on sale from $0.99 to $0.25 this week.

Also got $0.25 sharpies for the wedding a couple weeks ago. Thank goodness for back to school time!

Here are our Newsletters

I wanted to get some info out to the guests as I have it on our website but don't think people check it for updates!

T-60 days until our planning session!

These will go out in the mail by the end of the week.

Front Page:


When you open the front cover:


This is the inside when you open it flat (this was before it was folded, but you get the idea):


Back page:


Before folding:


Envelopes I bought at Target and printed our return address and the guests' address on the front:


I was pleased with how they came out but they used a lot more ink than I thought they would.

Those came out REALLY nice, Erin! What program did you use to make them? I love the sticker designs, too. I think it's really neat when couples have their own unique logo or design...something no other bride will ever have

I used the 'Pages' program on my mac. Thanks for the compliment!

Shoes

My shoes arrived! I wanted something fun, but not high-heeled as Rick doesn't want me taller than him.

Here they are:


I am not a fancy shoe type person so these are the nicest shoes I've ever purchased.


Back details:




Best part is they are comfortable!

Erin, this was the first time I had a chance to look at your thread since my last post. Everything looks GREAT! I love the newsletter...it looks so professional! And the stickers with your logo turned out wonderful. I can't wait to see more things that you make!

Here is a little wedding present for you in case you can use one of them...I wasn't sure which DISign you might like:





These should measure 5.25 x 5.5 to fit on a regular milk chocolate hershey bar. I print mine on regular paper (if you use cardstock then you have to deal with getting a good crease). Then I cover it with shelf paper to give it a professional look and feel (it is also called clear adhesive/peel and stick laminate - you can get it at Walmart where they sell shelf paper). Or you can print on glossy brochure paper. Or you can try it on your sticker machine (but it could be difficult lining it up to get the ends to match perfectly).

PS If you have time...make something and join in the FE craze on your cruise. It is so much fun to come back to your cabin and have gifts waiting...and just as much fun to give them to others!

How could I have missed this great gift, Dolly, I love them both! Just have to decide to use them in the welcome bags or for something else! Decisions, decisions! Thanks again!

Small update:

Passports received
Accessories purchased - headband, necklace and bracelet (photos to follow)
Confirmation of dress shipping - should arrive beginning of next week?
Carolyn Allen's - we will be visiting the shop for Rick to check things out when we go to
Disney in October

I haven't been doing much in way of my DIY projects as I have been working two jobs (yay for extra wedding money!). Have also been trying to cook more at home as we are trying to lose a few pounds (although it's hard to do when I'm so tired when I get home).

That's all for now, pictures to follow!
