If you're a YW leader, you might relate to this. I tend to get phone calls Wednesday afternoons and evenings before the YW activity, asking: "What are we doing tonight?" (the activity announcement on Sunday apparently doesn't cut it)
We started making newsletters for Young Womens last year to help our girls/their parents, the bishopric and us as leaders to keep track of activities, events, and other fun stuff (this has cut down on those Wednesday night phone calls & texts).
Although I wanted the newsletters to be creative and different each time, I didn't want to spend all sorts of time coming up with a new format each time! I created a basic template and tweek it each time with different digital papers, embellishments, and sometimes a slightly different arrangement.
Here are the last few newsletters based on the same template...
We don't have many girls, so it's not too costly for us to print them at Kinkos so each girl can have a colorful newsletter to take home.
Here's the template I created:
1. This is a PHOTOSHOP file. You must have Photoshop software installed on your computer in order to use this download.
2. It is a greyscale template...no pretty papers or page elements (decorations). You will need to fill in those elements (I cannot share the completed newsletters because I have downloaded (for free or purchase) those cute elements but I am not licensed to share them digitally for copyright reasons.
3. The download is a large file so I had to ZIP the file, which means you will have to unzip it. To do so, go to the location you downloaded the file. Then, right click on the file name and click "unzip" or "extract files" or something to that effect. Then it will create a new folder which is unzipped and you can open the template in photoshop.
...if you have read and understand the above, you can download the Photoshop Template HERE!
