It's time for another week of Pinterest favorites. It's officially the "Holiday" season, and this week I'm sharing some Christmas card ideas.
Tonight, our family had our pictures taken at Target. The goal was a family shot, some for Natalie's second birthday, and if we were lucky all three kids together. Everyone cooperated, and it worked awesome. Then it was time to order....and I ordered photo cards.
This is nothing new-I always order them from Shutterfly, and I love them-every.single.year.
I had a Target photo coupon that gave me 48 prints for $.49 a piece. My frugal side caved, as well as my sensible time management side. After seeing these super cute ideas on Pinterest, I was very inspired to make our own cards, but my reality is such that making my own simply isn't going to happen.
I hope some of these inspire you, and maybe get you thinking about your Christmas cards this year. I love getting and sending photo cards-we have so many college and seminary friends far and wide across the US, that one thing I look forward to at Christmas is seeing everyone's kids and families and how they've grown.
Do you send Christmas cards?
Do you make your own? Paper crafting, stamping, or using an online service?
This one caught my eye. With my scrapbooking cutting tools and the right paper, this could easily be a DIY card.
Printable templates for cards? Why not? With the various colors of cardstock or heavy grade paper available, these could be easy!
Similar to my LOVE picture gift I posted last week, you could pose your kids for your Christmas card. Sites like Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc., offer some styles of cards with three cells to fill. If you arranged these the right way, it would be so cute!
As much as I would love to think so, I don't think my kids could fingerprint 40+ cards so I could send them out in time. But, for grandparents or a smaller amount of cards to send,
these would be so cute.
