Hey there – not to obsess about this welcome schedule thing I made (I JUST posted about it) – but I wanted to let you know what I did.  It was super easy.  I just used Powerpoint to make the handout, downloaded a few free fonts to try out from fontspace.com and 1001freefonts.com, found some cute clip art images online, and used the “insert text” (text boxes) and “insert shape” (lines and arrows) tools.  Pretty simple!  Good luck!

My fiance had done almost all our paper stuff using GIMP, its basically a free photoshop. I use it to edit photos and had no idea you could use it in the capacity that he has. Here are a few of the projects we have done using it.

This is an actual screen shot ( not printed out yet) So it is lower qaulity but it will be our guest book, people will sign the book spines.

And we did all our invited using gimp as well….

We did all of our Save-The-Date Cards and invitations using word. Just need to layer the document corretly. I also plan on using word for our programs which will be easy.

@Jlee28:  Those are amazing!!!!  Good job!

@FutureMrsZepeda:  Haven’t done any of those other things yet…  Powerpoint is great for a basic template to organize text and images though.  It doesn’t have any of the annoying formatting stuff that Word does, so you can position any text box or image anywhere you want in the page.
