I got all of the “Pictures” printed at Walgreens and bought the cards at Michael’s on sale.  So, for under $1 each I have 22 different cards that I will then put a picture of my 2 little boys (the baby and the dog) for everybody to enjoy this holiday season.

Thank you again for following along this year.  Stay with me as I continue with other projects and organization tips.  I already have my list for November so get ready!!!!!

Hope everybody has a wonderful and Safe Halloween night!!!!

31 Days of Christmas: Day 30 – Vintage Joy

 

It’s the FINAL Card.  Thank you again for spending the last 30 days with me.   It has been fun creating a bunch of new things and sharing them with you.

Today’s card really is about letting the paper tell the story.  Also this card is Vintagey but un-traditional because it’s not your typical “Christmas card”.   As you can see in some instances, less is more and I feel with the “Paper” I used that too many embellishments may have made this one too busy.

 

Here is today’s Card – Vintage Joy

 

Print the following 4×6 card (JPG format) on photo paper or card stock and paste onto a card and DONE.

Or if you like the “Layered” look then print the following (also JPG format) cut out the pieces and adhere using foam squares or double sided tape.

See you tomorrow!!!

31 Days of Christmas: Day 27 – Merry Mailbox

With all of this talk about Christmas cards I figured it would be fair to create some kind of holder for all of the awesome cards you are going to get.  This could also be used as a card holder until you send your own cards out.  Nothing like a multi-purpose solution.

Here is what you will need for the Merry Mailbox

  • 1 Small Priority Mail Flat Rate Box
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Card Stock
  • Markers

Here are the Easy Steps:

1.  Assemble the Priority Mail Box

2.  Cut off the top Flaps

3. Wrap the box

4.  On the top of the box cut a strip an inch from each side and then cut at an angle to the corner.  This makes sure that you can easily fold the flaps over

5.  Create a tag for the front of the box using your favorite punch, foam squares, and some markers

And here is the finished product!!!

This project only takes about 20 minutes tops and can be used through the whole holiday season.

Hope you enjoyed tonight’s Project (Sorry the post is coming so late)

See you for just a couple more days of cards.  Can’t believe that the month is almost over already!!!!

31 Days of Christmas: Day 26 – Photo Calendars

Another great digital gift is a calendar.  I have been giving my in-laws a calendar of our dogs for the last 3 years, a tradition that will continue for a very long time.    This year I had to make a calendar of my son’s first year.  This way I can remember what he looked like when he was super little all while he is now running through our apartment talking up a storm.

With custom calendars you can do so many things and even add birthdays and holidays to the calendar it’s self.

There are so many options out there, like the photo books you just need to surf around and see what style and layouts work best for you.

Here are some website I would check out

Sorry for the short post tonight, the weekend kind of got away from me!!!!

Hope everybody is having a fabulous weekend.  See you tomorrow for a project and then we are in the home stretch for cards and ideas.

31 Days of Christmas: Day 25 – Silent Night

Ok I’m back to being traditional.  I just love this music paper that I have and I just had to use it.  This time I did a little more text and less embellishments, because with this card, it’s all about the song.

Print the following 4×6 card (JPG format) on photo paper or card stock and paste onto a card and DONE.
