It’s a Wonderful Life

Tis the Season to take a step back and reflect on how lucky I am. I have an amazing family, a solid career, and some pretty amazing friends. I thought it was fitting that for our Christmas card this year I chose the phrase

“It’s a Wonderful Life”

This year we had a mini photo session with Luna Signature to get some pictures for our Christmas card. We met with Aleksandra on a Sunday in October and LUCKED out. The weather was gorgeous and the babes were so cooperative! *Mental note to self, 4pm is the ideal time for them!

When I’m planning our outfits I always start with Giada! I had this Matilda Jane Platinum top that I knew I wanted to use. The colors were not traditional Christmas colors, but I thought it could work by adding some red accents!

I love mixing patterns and textures when I’m dressing our family for photos and using a variety of colors!

What do you think?! I think the colors turned out great and Aleksandra did an amazing job of capturing our little fam!

For the actual cards themselves I tried a new company and went with Mix Book. I ordered them on a Thursday, chose standard shipping, and they arrived the following Monday. I was SUPER impressed with that turn around time.

Here they are!

Our Tiny Prints Cards

Anyone else love getting Christmas cards? Like I mean really love it?  I think that’s one of my favorite parts about the holidays; checking my mail each day for photo cards from friends and family. Naturally I just love creating our Christmas card each year too.

This year we decided to use Tiny Prints to create our family’s card and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!

The design we used was called Delightfully Merry and had them printed on Pearl White Shimmer paper.  The shimmer paper really enhanced the look of the cards!

I also wanted something unique for our address labels this year. Sooooo I got in touch with Nanico Studio and she created the most adorable cartoon of our family.
