Aylee Shares

If you're a DIY bride, then you may be interested in the resources provide by a very talented lady named Aylee. Her Aylee Designs website provides ideas for DIY projects and very detailed instructions, templates, and supply lists to create them. These projects include wedding invitations, program fans, save-the-dates, and more.

She freely offers the information to everyone, and if for some reason, you just don't have the time or desire to DIY, you can engage Aylee to create the project for you. She also does custom monograms. FI and I are using her fan program template as a guideline to create our own.

I recently made a prototype, and it looks great so far. As for the wedding monograms, I love them, but I just wasn't interested in having someone else decorate my name and charge me for it. I started thinking about how I can create my own wedding monograms. First, I tried using PowerPoint, but it wasn't quite right. Then, I used Microsoft Publisher, which worked out perfectly. FI and I are really pleased with our new monogrammed labels. You can truly customize your print project, with the graphics, fonts, and designs you like. You can even save them as commercial print quality JPEG files. These are just of few of the monograms we've made, slightly modified of course.

Don't have the software or don't want to spend alot on it? You can download a free 60-day trial of Microsoft Publisher 2007 from office.microsoft.com!
