A Digital Christmas

 
One of the best things about digital scrapbooking is being able to make custom cards and gift accessories quickly and easily. Almost everyone sends out Christmas cards and going digital makes it so easy to incorporate your name, your pictures, and your own personal messages. By printing out your digital creations, you can also make cute invitations, seasonal gift toppers, and custom gift containers.
 

Check out some of the Christmas creations by the creative team and get inspired to make your own holiday items.



I really like digital picture cards. You can change a background or a picture to create different cards for everyone in your family with just a few clicks. That way grandma and Aunt Joan can have their favorite pictures in their own card with out a ton of work from you.
 

I love this red card by Angie(nun69). I just love all the pictures of her kids and how well the background matched.

 

Kristi(MamaK321) used a pink background, a color that is becoming more and more common in the Christmas theme, and matched her girls’ outfits very well.

Another version of this card with different a background

 

Here's the inside of a card from Egle(FairyMouseMom) where she put her pictures on the inside.  I love the matting, it really highlights the picture with the color she used, and that their family name is so prominent.   Putting the pictures inside is a nice surprise for the reader!

Christmas Card 2007 Greeting

 

This card Jackie(CamsMomma) made for a friend. Her friend had asked if she would help her make some picture cards, and since everyone is busy this time of year, doing something traditionally was out of the question. By doing the card digitally, Jackie was able to make the digital portion in a couple hours and print out the face of the cards, which her friend glued to 5x7 precut cards.  20 custom cards in less than 3 hours.
 


 For those of you who don’t want to give picture cards, you can still make your Christmas cards personal and flex your creativity by making your own.  With any of these cards you have option of e-mailing them to far away friends and relatives, or printing and mailing.

Also, make things other than just cards!
 
These potpourri toppers by Karin(mayerkt) are too cute. I love that the directions are on them, and that she used a handwriting font to look like she hand wrote it. If you’re like me, this is a much safer way to add a personal looking touch, without ruining a bunch of tags.

 

Kristi(MamaK321) made her own bag toppers, gift tags, and decorated these chocolate tins. The whole process for the tins took her about an hour! What a wonderful unique gift presentation! An easy gift for co-workers, teachers, etc. that looks like you put a lot of time and thought in to it.

An idea you can customize for any time of year, season, or event; mailing labels

 

Egle(FairyMouseMom) made the cute invitations for a cookie exchange.  I love how she made the tiered platter for the cookies!  So cute.  She made these digitally, printed them and added glitter and rhinestones.

 

And another gift bag from Sara(Keiling).  She made these bags for her son to take to his class.
