christmas cards | 2011

Seeing as all the cards are posted, and hopefully will arrive at the beginning of the coming week, I thought I'd post them here. Now, I always have plans to make the cards by hand. About half of the times I run out of time and have to quickly whip something up in Photoshop. I have this idea that Christmas cards should be handmade and so when I don't get to do that I can't help but feel a little bit like a failure. But there are only so many hours in the day, and I'm letting it go.

So I had originally designed something entirely different, but in the end felt it wasn't representative of us. So one night this week I promptly decided to remake them. Said and done, and in four hours I had designed three different cards, printed, cut, mounted (on cardstock), and adressed them all. I was kind of chuffed about that.

Alrighty, here they are:

(Do you see me huddling on the floor in the reflection of the ornament? Hee!)





I used the Be Merry Photocards for the second and third card (just changed out the papers on the second one with papers from the Frostbite Paper Pack). For the first one I used wordard from the Be Merry Photocards and paper from the Be Merry Paper Pack. You can find all of these in my shop at JessicaSprague.com

Birthday party continues with new stuff and a giveaway



And the party continues my dear friends! I am so excited about the new product that is available at JessicaSprague.com today! I love greeting cards. I love to give them and I love to recieve them. I love digital greeting cards. I love the flexibility and the ease of the idea. From one single template it's possible to get a multitude of designs from photocards to more classic designs. The best thing? You can also print each layer seperately and then put together as a regular paper card. Isn't hybrid just fab?

Meet&Greet

This set features four fully layered psd card templates and four quick cards (as seen in the preview above). The cuick cards are also in psd. format with a seperate layer for you to clip a photo, a patterned paper, or a text layer to - whatever you want! I think you saw some examples of the cards in my inspiration post on Friday? Excellent work by the CT, no?

I am also equally excited about the giveaway today. It's a good one y'all! I have one gift certificate worth $10 to My Four Hens Photography. Yay! Sarah of My Four Hens has some gorgeous actions. Gorgeous I tell you. Now, don't worry, there are actions for both Elements and for CS, so you are covered no matter what PS software you use. There are also Lightroom presets, overlays, and textures to choose from.
One lucky person will win the $10 gift certificate.
All you have to do is leave a comment to this post telling me about someone you would like to send a card to. You have until Wednesday to reply. The winner will be announced on Thursday. Very simple!

Now, don't miss the OBW on Wednesday. And you also don't want to miss the freebie I've got lined up for you on Friday!

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with My Four Hens. They have not asked me to write about them. I have not been given the gift certificate by them. I am the sponsor of the money for the gift certificate. I just happened to like their products and wanted to share it with you all. :)

Sneak peek in the shape of a card

Allright, the second sneak peek my upcoming kit, which will be available next Monday the 21st at JessicaSprague.com, is a digi photocard. I like the ease of digitally made cards. I like how you can just print and go in times when you don't really want to deal with paper clippings and glue everywhere. I also love that you can use them again and again and just plop a new photo in there. Me lazy? Hmpf, I prefer to call it smart about my time! Hee!
