Well since the holidays are coming to a close WAY too quickly - I think it is finally safe to share the holiday cards that I designed this year for some dear, dear clients! One of the biggest compliments I can receive as a designer is to have clients come back year after year to design their family cards. So without further adieu... here they are! 

Aren't these boys precious?! This family took their own photos and I love how they turned out! 

Both of these cards had special announcements hidden within them - so fun!

The majority of my designs this year (and the years before) feature family photos so this was a fun one to get to design for a close friend's parents who recently moved!

I love that New Years cards have really become popular - it makes the season last just a little bit longer!

This client is one of my faves. Her sense of humor slays me every time. She's also an amazing event planner with an eye for detail - Beecher's Boutique Events.

New babies make for precious Christmas cards! I designed birth announcements on one side of the card and a Christmas message on the other! Two birds with one stone, amiright?! The photos on both of these cards were taken by my very talented friend, Meg of Meg Ruffing Photography

Aren't these kiddos adorable? Love the clean typography on this one!

Easy teacher/friend/neighbor holiday gift idea

Oh man, its already that time of year again - the gift lists seem never ending and Pinterest is overwhelming. Well, I have an easy and USEFUL gift idea for you! Its not original but I think you'll like it. I present to you: soap! With a cute gift tag, natch. I made these for my mom's group and I think they'll be a big hit as we all have little germ hoarders running around!

Click here for the printable sheet with both red and green text. 

You'll need these items for the project which probably you have at home or can grab on a quick trip to Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Those glue dots. Just do it.

Then grab any bottles of soap that strike your fancy. I picked up a whole bunch from Bath and Body Works  as they are buy 5 for $18right now and they have a ton of lovely smelling, holiday ones to choose from.

So you'll just print out the cards that I've linked above (I recommend using card stock as it is more sturdy) and then size the festive paper to be the border, pop a glue dot on the back of the printed card, punch a hole, tie some twine and VOILA! An instant, useable teacher/friend/neighbor Christmas gift!
