Newsletter & Card Round Up

It's about that time of year when you start thinking about sending out Christmas cards or Newsletters, or maybe you are on the ball and you've already finished yours. Good for you! If you are like me it's kind of in the back of your mind but you are waiting for Thanksgiving to pass before really getting down to business. 

I thought I would take a look through my store to see what I have released in the past that might help you with your Christmas newsletters or cards. Some of these are oldies but still goodies.  I've marked them all down to 40% OFF until December 1st. That way, instead of just thinking about doing it (like me), you can actually be proactive and get started.

I created these quite a while ago, but they would still work for 2014 Newsletters.

I created these last year. These are fun for an infographic type newsletter. Just think of all those fun facts you could include on your card.

And look at these. All the way back from 2010! These are classics. Great for writing that traditional newsletter and lots of places for photos. (just remember, these do not include .page files....for you .page file users)

On to cards. Wow! After browsing my store I realized I need to be working on some more card templates. I did find two sets that could work as Christmas cards or even invites for Christmas parties. (again, the 2nd set does not come with .page files, but it does come with .png files that you can use)

Now is the perfect time to start thinking about those Christmas letters and cards. Remember, grab any of the sets above at 40% OFF through December 1st.

And just a reminder that I have my $1 sale coming up tomorrow...and there might be some more newsletter/card style templates for you to grab during the sale. There's also still time to enter the giveaway to win all 8 of my new products!

Just thought I would share some of my pages....

I've been trying to pump out pages for Matthew's album, and I thought I would show you what I've worked on since the last time I shared his pages.

Let's get started.

Okay, to be honest, I got a little sidetracked. Mostly by these templates (Zine Style Templates 1 and Zine Style Templates 2) and then the pictures I took last winter....before Matthew. I had been dying to work with these new templates and so I took a little detour and found the perfect pictures and scrapped these pages, which will be a double page layout in the album. I would have scrapped some of Matthew's photos with them but I'm trying to keep a cohesive look to his album and I'm sticking with my Double Monthly Challenge Templates.

I just love how they turned I had to show you.

Okay, now to Matthew's pages. In these first few pages we are still visiting Beijing...but of course all I could think about was how our son would be in our arms in just two short days.

 Then it was time to move on to Nanjing, the province where he is from. We were so ready.

Obviously I'm loving polka dot backgrounds.

 Then it was time to explore the city a bit. Such a big city with some fun scenes.

I have two pages in the works right now of some of the things we did that night before we would get Matthew...and then it will be time to scrap pictures with him. I can't wait!

Week 46: Playing, Reading, Surgery & More!

I know, I know. I used way too many QR codes on my page this week...but there were just too many cute videos to go along with the pictures. Maybe I'll have to start combining the videos and just making one QR code for the week.

I'll let you read about our week below and make sure you grab the free journal card template too...and watch the videos if you want to.

Journaling: This is what our days usually look like....lots of playing and reading. Our living room and dining room are often a maze of train tacks, buildings, Lincoln Logs and more. This week the kids looked at their scrapbooks quite a bit. It’s one of Lydia’s favorite things to do. She usually looks through them once a week. Everyone joined in this week.

Journaling: Matthew had to have dental surgery (too many years of poor nutrition and poor dental hygiene).  He was such a trooper. He woke up smiling and never complained. We spent Saturday morning raking leaves. We always have lots of leaves in the fall. After raking leaves we visited Grandma and Grandpa for a bit. Grandpa took the kids for a 4-wheeler ride. At one point all the kids piled on...don’t worry, they only went for a very short ride. We also finally finished Kyla’s apron. We’ve been working on it for almost 5 months! She’s worn it every day since we finished it.
