Our Holiday Card - 2015

This was the second year we attempted to take Santa photos with both of my boys. Last year's card was such a hit (at least for me), that we dared do it again. This time, my mother-in-law was in town when we scheduled the photo session, so my oldest asked if she could be the one to wear the Santa suit. She was happy to oblige.

Despite both my husband and me making silly noises and faces behind the photographer, our toddle simply would not smile! Meh, we tried. Thank you FotoFly for hiring photographers who are great with kids and take some pretty rad photos.

He cracked a tiny smile when he got to eat a cookie though. He inherited my sweet tooth. 

We printed our cards with VistaPrint and I was thrilled to get them mailed well before Christmas. I'm pretty sure I can count on one hand how many times that has happened. 

This holiday card design is available in my Etsy shop in the fall. You can view the listing here. Merry Christmas! 

New Holiday Cards

It's a little later than I wanted, but I managed to get a few new holiday cards designs and added to my Etsy shop this past week.

I'll be accepting orders for holiday cards (whether custom or in my Etsy shop) thru Sunday, December 20th. After the 20th, I will deactivate holiday card listings in my shop and spending the week of Christmas with my family.

All of these designs have a couple of options when it comes to either a text color or a background color. Clicking on an image will take you to its listing in my shop. 

Thanksgiving Cootie Catcher

All month I've been thinking about creating a Thanksgiving themed cootie catcher like I did for Christmas a couple of years ago. This morning, I finally got a chance to get it done. 

For today only it's available as a free download! A second page with folding instructions is also included. HERE is the link to download.

Teach your kids about this fun DIY toy that we all enjoyed when we were kids!

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy!

Jackie & Michael's Holiday Card - 2014

My sister and her fiancé, Michael wanted to send out a holiday card that shared a bit about the fun stuff they did in 2014. The biggest event was that they got engaged!! We used the polaroid photo collage that I used for my family's 2012 holiday card and made it work for their images.

As you can see, they love to be active and outside.

Congrats little sister!! Can't wait to share your wedding invitations too!

Custom Holiday Cards

I created holiday cards that are currently available in my Etsy shop. Each listing explains what can and cannot be customized and if there are options for colors. Let me know how you're planning to print your cards and I'll make sure to set up the final files to the correct printing specifications.

Clicking on an image will direct you to its corresponding Etsy listing.

This is one of my current favorites! One image and a Christmas greeting, choose either the green or blue colorway.


This is a two-sided design with a large image on the front. You can have it say either Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays (or some variation of those). The back has space for up to five images along with a letter to friends and family about your family's year. 


This design allows you to showcase five images and give your family and friends a top ten list of the highlights of your year. I can do either a green or blue faux chalkboard background and I have have the bottom say either Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas (or any variation of those). Please keep your "top ten" brief as space is limited.


This design is laid out to be sent in a #10 envelope. You can have the bottom greeting say anything you'd like and the space at the bottom of each polaroid photo can caption each image.


Six images and a non-Christmasy greeting. Great if you're like me and you struggle to get your cards into the mail before Christmas!

Share one image with a snowflake background and holiday lights for a border!

One family photo and a couple of giant snowflakes. I can customize the color of the flags at the top and bottom to correspond to colors that are in your photo or leave them as is. Let me know!

One family photo and sized to fit into a #10 envelope. You can choose between a red, green or blue swirly background too!

Simple design with a greeting you can customize. Choose either red, green or blue for the snowflake background.

Simple design that showcases one family photo. Two color options and it can say either Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or a variation of those.

I am working on new designs that I hope to be able to add to my shop within the next week or so. 

Shoot me an email if you're looking for something custom or you want to rework one of these designs. Also check out the custom cards I've created for clients. I can rework those designs to fit your needs as well.
