My husband really likes the Chalkboard Christmas photocard so that will probably the one I print for our family. My favorite is Merry & Bright mostly because I love that photo of the kids. Maybe I will have to get two different sets of photocards this year!! What is your favorite?

I know most people don’t think about their Christmas cards until December, but I am not like most people. I feel like I am behind if I haven’t designed my cards by September. For the past ten years I have been sending out handmade Christmas cards, but this year I decided to evolve with the digital age and make my own family photocards. I wanted to make one that didn’t look like any other photocard I had seen and when I saw a Photoshop chalkboard tutorial, I knew this was the beginning of my holiday card.
Of course, I couldn’t stop there!! I couldn’t just design one photocard!
Kitta gave me this photo to use in their family photobook, but as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for a holiday card. I am in the process of designing two more holiday photocards and they will all be available for order soon with your own family pictures. I just wanted to give you sneak peek and get you thinking about those Christmas cards!
I will also be offering traditional Christmas cards and once I have finished designing those I will post them with prices too.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
