It's beginning to look a lot like
CHRISTMAS!
part 1

This was our 2005 Christmas card... the fronts did not go out saying "Noel"... this was my mock up card... :)




It's beginning to look a lot like
CHRISTMAS!

part 2


For our 2006 Christmas card, I designed the cards digitally, and had them printed. It's a little booklet that starts off with an '05 Christmas picture, then goes through the seasons to recap our year. I loved how this was able to send out so many pictures to people we don't get to see often through the year.

(The pictures aren't the greatest... but I was working in a hurry since we're about to head to the pumpkin patch!)

I'm sure the recipients of the mini book cards were super impressed, those turned out really cute!! I'm going to design my own digi card this year and have it printed, simply because i'm so tired of every photo card that i recieve/give looking the same...lol.

BTW...did you see that 2peas posted their holiday freebie? it's got some cute stuff in there!

I love it! Did you order them together or did you have to put them together yourself?

Last year I did digicalendars with the shabby princess template. it came out great, but i used a lot, a lot of ink and paper.and mailing those bad boys, well that's another story. not sure what the plan is for this year.

great idea to make a little mini book for your cards. If I had small children still at home, I would so steal your idea!

Beautiful! I might have to scraplift the J-O-Y photo in the card, that would work perfectly with my three little ones.
