Digital Christmas Cards...MDS Blog Hop

It always makes me smile when I can create with pictures of theses beautiful people! Is my sisters family not just gorgeous?! She had these pictures taken by on old friend who has a photography business - Lisa Rappa Photography. I love that my sister helped a FAMILY OWNED business! Since were going to spend the money this season shouldn't it be with Local Artists?! 

 Here's a few MDS tips: Creating all 3 designs inside a Tri Fold card project will help with the cost of printing!  Plus, if your like me and can't decide which you like best you could have them printed just like this and get 3 postcard designs out of one card. hahaha

No, really I would make a decision and change all 3 panels of the card to look the same. The next image shows the back side of the card so they could be cut into postcards when they arrive. 
*Save some cash* Adding your designs into a full card is the most cost effective way to order them without sacrificing quality! Prints sent off to Stampin' Up! are a heavy weight cardstock with a matte finish that look and feel like you paid a fortune - but you didn't - and your helping a small business owner, and friend, YOUR Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. 
 If you don't have a local demonstrator, I'd love to help you with your cards and gift giving this season! 

Since inquiring minds (mostly just me) what to know... I created two polls on the top right of my blog.
 I sure hope you'll take a minute and answer them. 
 Which design you like the best? 
What kind of cards do you typically send and What kind of crafter are you?

Wether your a digital designer, traditional crafter, or not crafty at all I'd love to help you with all your Holiday needs. I teach gift and card making classes, offer gift making kits, and have ready to give items for sale! How may I help you, this season?

For all you Digital Designers, thanks for following the HOP!  It's time to gather some more inspiration from these super talented ladies.
