Happy Friday! I feel like I was just doing this for last year, but somehow it is already time to send out Christmas cards again! This year we tried something new, and I have to say I’m very pleased impressed with the results. I partnered with Staples Copy & Print to create our cards this year, and chose this adorable pre-made template right in their software.
It fit my style perfectly, and saved me a ton of time. There’s even a cute little space on the back for a Christmas letter- but I will leave that part as a surprise to the recipients, since I’m already spoiling the front of the card ;)
I opted to do our Christmas card photo myself this year (an experience, to say the least). While it was a bit of a challenge to get all three children to look at me and smile at one time, I was able to somehow get a couple of really cute photos out of the shoot! Our neighbor’s big silly dog that we love came and saved the day- the boys had been a bit sleepy and grumpy, and then he ran through out of nowhere and photobombed us, which had them in hysterics. We got some great smiles after that!
After I had recovered a bit from our photo shoot, I was able to easily upload the photos to Staples website, and then fill in our information in the software to create the cards. There are also party invitations for your special holiday event, and photo calendars– which make a great gift for the grandparents. I was impressed with how quickly everything arrived, so there’s still plenty of time. Right now you can save 20% off of your Staples Copy & Print order by using the code HOLIDAY20 by 12/26!
I also checked out their custom photo gifts, and created this adorable little ornament. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see those little faces on their tree? It will make a perfect gift topper, although I will admit that I don’t want to part with it. Luckily I can make more, and you can also save 20% off of photo gifts by using the code JOLLY20 by 12/26.
I know this mug will also be making someone’s day as they sip their coffee each morning!
Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
