Tools:

  • Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop (or whatever else you want to use)
  • Lavender metallic cardstock paper from paperandmore.com
  • Fiskars rotary cutter with straight blade
  • Corner punch

I created it using Paint Shop Pro. I use Photoshop too, but I prefer PSP. I used the same dragon/phoenix tail vector that I designed for the website and invitation enclosures.

This is the rough draft (a little blurry here due to the high resolution being shrunk to website size):

I printed these myself on the cardstock.

Newsletters

I made newsletters for the bridal party every couple of months. I wanted to introduce each of them and also keep them up to date on what we would like to do. Before I sent the first one, they all were asked to answer an email questionnaire about themselves so that the other members can get to know them. This was very simple and I was lazy so I didn’t really bother designing them. The idea was a newspaper-like document that gave information, but did not give away DETAIL.

The first issue was sent on April 2008. It incorporated the girls‘ getting-to-know-you mini-bios. The second issue was send on July 2008 and it incorporated MOST of the guys‘ mini-bios. There have been several more issues, but they all generally looked like this:

I made each of them on 11 x 17 inch white paper and printed in black for a "newspaper" feel. They were each designed on Microsoft Word using borderless tables.
