Making My Own Photo Christmas Cards & Stamps

Even though I liked my cards from Seehere, I wanted a card not a postcard.  I didn't like the flimsy paper and prefer a heavier cardstock.   The above cards are what I made from my photos.  Taking the photos took a couple of different efforts and it was not easy but I'm happy with the outcome.   I created these from my Zazzle account.  After making my ornaments from CafePress today, I need to explore card making there too!

I also bought matching stamps but used Picnik.com to turn the girls into reindeers and I added a fun border.  I should get paid for Picnik as I am always praising them!

I used my Stampin' Up stamp to add the little Christmas saying on the side and Christmas tree stickers from Target to seal the back.

Now I have to address all of them and determine if we will send a stack to my husband's soldiers as that will be a task!

Merry Early Christmas!

New Personalized Christmas Ideas

I just reviewed my regular mail from yesterday and opened a flyer from Photoworks.com announcing a new site along with free shipping using code HOLIDAYSHIP09.  I've used Photoworks before and haven't really thought about what knock out gifts I would buy this year yet but did like the inspirational ideas that I saw. 

The calendars are different from what I'm used to seeing as there are more varieties and choices to offer more of a you in each month.  They offer more than just one picture and it has a scrapbook feel to it. 

My photo card this year will be tough to decide since I have a 75% off coupon at Zazzle versus the multi-card options which I prefer.  I love these types of cards as they become keepsakes.  I've not ordered cards from them before so I have no idea on the quality. 

This is another one of my favorites that I almost bought last year but opted out.  I think I might try one this year just to see the quality.

This is a cute idea for home made baked goods:

With places like Photoworks and others, they allow us to almost look like the perfect Martha Stewart ... after all, who has to admit we didn't make it completely by ourselves??
