Its that time of year when all good digital scrapbookers go into a panic of last minute card, calendar and gift planning.
Storebought cards? Feh! Not good enough for us crafty souls who feel we must outshine all with pictures of our beautiful families on custom made Christmas Photo Cards. We might lose our membership in the Digi club if we didn't!
Well, folks, first of all take a deep breath and think about what the holidays really mean. For me they are a beautiful "down time" where I get to do some nice things for my kids, see fancy light shows, and light some ceremonial Hanukkah candles.
I didn't do cards at all last year. I made gorgeous photo calendars for my family through Shutterfly and let the card thing go. The year before last however, I did a really cute "Christmakkah" card which I ordered through VistaPrint. VistaPrint has great prices on photo cards. I recommend them for price and speed of printing.
Its very easy to do custom photo cards with Photoshop Elements and great templates and elements from Scrapbook stores such as Kim Hill's CG Essentials and Scrapbook-Elements stores.
