Have yourself a Vintage Hip Christmas...

by winning this:



Vintage Hip Christmas Crafts: 9 step-by-step tutorials for layouts, decor, gifts, and more by Margie Romney-Aslett and daughters Megan and Brooke.

Choose your own crafting adventure! Whether you're trying to get crafty between batches of cookies or you've got a whole weekend to revel in your creativity, we've got the Christmas project for you! Crafting rockstar Margie Romney-Aslett and her daughters, Brooke and Megan, have pulled together nine totally glitter-tastic ideas in Ella Publishing Co.'s latest eBook, Vintage Hip Christmas Crafts: 9 step-by-step layouts, gifts, d├ęcor and more. Put on your favorite Christmas album, brew up a mug of cocoa, and pick your crafting poison.

If you'd like to win a copy of Ella Publishing Co.'s newest eBook, leave a comment and tell me about your Christmas card. Do you make your own? Send photo cards? Do you send them early, or like me, have you actually sent some after Christmas? Ooh, I know, what do you do with your cards? Display them? Stick them in a basket? Throw them away, including the picture cards and/or pictures (cough, cough, Shelly, cough)?

While I only have one copy to give away, I do have a code you can use to get Vintage Hip Christmas Crafts for 25% off. The code is CRAFTY09 and it is valid through 12/13.

It's 4 in the morning and I can't sleep...what better way to pass the time than read my friends blogs? ;) Just made our card tonight at Costco.com with B's picture dropping off her letter to Santa in the big red box at Macy's. I like costco: quick, easy, and budget friendly! Also, check out my blog to see what I am doing with my cards this year...just made a new display over Thanksgiving break!

Normally I make cards for 1/2 our list and use "bulk" cards for the rest. We fill them with a funny letter or poem and a picture. We are off our game this year, so I don't know what we'll do.

I put (most) of them into a pocket of one of my 12 days of Christmas pages every year-I do NOT throw away picture cards ;)

photo cards the last couple years. mine were ordered in november & sitting on my kitchen table, now I just need to send them out! I save ALL of our cards in a basket. I tie them in a ribbon and put them in a box...i don't know what to do with them after that. some of picture cards i put in my christmas scrapbook. my mother in law cuts off the holiday greetings parts on the photo cards and makes refrigerator magnets out of her favorites!! I need some vintage hip in my life!

I make my cards every year, I 'm a nut! I am usually inspired by the colors I see. Popping up at Pier 1!

I've got a mini album with pockets where I store our Christmas cards & letters (but only the ones with pictures). This year I think I'll keep them out in a box on our table and we'll pull one out each time we do family devotions and pray for that family.

Last year my son drew a terrific Santa and I made those into cards through Shutterfly. Usually I am late, so I don't have mine ready yet!

I so wish I had the time to make and distribute my xmas cards.... :( So sadly, (lol) I rely on helping the kids with their generic xmas cards to hand out to their school friends.

I make our cards in PSE in a 4x6 size so they are cheaper to get printed. I usually type a Christmas letter to go with it.
