This year I searched for fun family Christmas card ideas that we could use and found tons and tons of really cute ones. We were gonna do something cute, maybe take pics at a tree farm or somewhere that would make for a really pretty background. But then we got busy with Thanksgiving, Brady's birthday, blog stuff and the holiday craziness and that cute family pic just never happened. So I had to start from scratch and think up a new plan.
I scrolled through site after site until I came across a cute card idea I liked, and surprise, it was from…. Staples. What? I didn't even know they did Christmas cards. Turns out they've got awesome holiday cards and lots of other fun stuff too. Personalized calendars, mugs, t-shirts, wall prints, water bottles and so much more.
I loved this black and gold design for our holiday card, love the metallic foil and the pretty lettering. Now I just had to choose a photo. This was probably the hardest part of the whole process. Staples Copy & Print makes it easy to add your own photos and customize the text. I finally decided on an adorable pic of B that we love. It's black and white and perfect and goes perfectly with the card design.
Looking through the array of other personalized gifts I decided to make something cute to give the grandparents this year. We recently all travelled to Florida for my cousin's wedding so I wanted to use some pics from our trip. Staples has a bunch of really cute ornaments you can add photos to. I added some cute pics of all the littles along with their names and date.
Almost ready to check-out when I saw that Staples has photo cases too! I've been wanting to order a cute photo phone case but I needed one that was durable, not just the flimsy plastic ones I've seen from most places. So I was surprised and excited to see Staples offers Tough cases for iPhone you can add your favorite pic (or pics) to. I uploaded my favorite picture of my two favorite guys and finished up placing my order.
I was so excited to see all the fun stuff I had created, so when it arrived a few days later I did a little dance and opened up the package. Our holiday card is beautiful, the colors are vibrant and its printed on premium card stock paper. The ornament is so cute, the grands are gonna love it! And my little gift to myself, that cute iPhone case, I couldn't love it more. Just hoping I don't accidentally leave my phone at the coffee place or all the other spots I'll be oh so subtly laying it down, flashing a pic of my handsome fellas.
