Christmas, continued

Although some of the radio stations started playing Christmas music a few weeks ago, I am holding out until Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) to start tuning in myself. I made this card to get me even more excited for all of the great Christmas songs I will listen and sing along to through the season.

I am currently working on building my Christmas shopping list for friends and family. I’m also preparing myself for writing Thank You cards for gifts I receive so I’ve started working on some Christmas-themed Thank You cards as well.

Thank You card collection

I find I’m always in need of more thank you cards. Here are some that I’ve made recently.

This first one reminds me of my sister-in-law who loves sunflowers more than anyone I know.

I am originally from New England so fall leaves have a special place in my heart. I wanted to highlight the fall leaves in the card below.

I kept my colors simple with the following card but used variations of each color (designer paper, regular cardstock, ink, ribbon, etc.) to make this card pop.

You might recognize the die cut of the hydrangea below. I used the same die cut and cut it into a circle to make the sunflower card at the top of this post.

The cable knit embossing folder has become one of my new winter favorites and was perfect for the neutrals Thank You card below.

My husband and I love spending time outdoors so this card embodies the feeling of the outdoors and incredible nature surrounding us.

The following card didn’t photograph exactly as colored – it is navy blue and white although it looks more like black in the photograph. The text and snowflake type image are embossed in white.

Wedding Personalization, Part 2

If you haven’t already read Wedding Personalization, Part 1, you should make sure to check it out. Here is a continuation of ways I personalized our wedding day.

For the bottom of my shoes, I added my new last name and our wedding date.

I made this sign to use during our engagement photos to get pictures with our beloved dog, Hannah. We posted this picture on Facebook the day of our wedding and had a framed copy on the welcome table as guests arrived.

Here are the gift bags that were given to our out of town guests. I designed the label to include our wedding date, our names, and an image of South Carolina. The heart represents the area in South Carolina where we were married.
