New "Non-Traditional" Christmas Card!

After a few crazy busy weeks, I was able to get Amber's Christmas Photo Card completed! I am so excited that they are loving this card! I pulled the pink from their cute little daughters skirt, and the green is a variation pulled from their other daughters (a cutie as well, don't you think?) dress. The font color was pulled from Amber's dress. This was so much fun to do... it's always fun when you have gorgeous photos to work with! Thank you Amber for letting me put this together! We can insert your family's photo in here, change the text, and adapt the colors for a mere $15.00! You can then go and have them "developed" as a 4x6 or 5x6 photo card!

High School Musical 3 Movie Party Invitation!

So my daughter Haley (who is NINE!) is a massive High School Musical fan! For MONTHS she's been planning on having a party with her friends to go and see the movie together. Of course I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a funky invite for her to give to her 12 friends! She took some pictures this summer of her with all of her HSM stuff, so I put this on the invite to personalize it. You can personalize it with a picture of your daughter (I say daughter, because really - is there a 10 year old boy that is dying to go see this movie?), or I can enlarge the text to fill the entire invite. What a fun idea!

Blue Snowflakes


Oh the clean and crisp look of blue and white! Throw in some snowflakes and you have a taste of winter! Your choice of a 4x6 or 5x7 photo card.

Red Snowflake Christmas Cards


You can't ask for more - red, white, and snowflakes! One of my favorite combinations! Choose either a 6x4 or 7x5 card.

Baby Announcment


This beautiful photo card can be made into a 12x12 scrapbook page, or frame it for your little one's nursery! I can customize it into any square size you wish.

I had so much fun creating this one. The main color is a blend from the grayish brown and the blue in his shirt... one of my most FAVE color combos! (I love how peaceful my little baby looks in this photo too!)
