2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas during COVID

2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas

It’s that time of year when we start planning holiday cards.  2020 hasn’t proven to be very photo-worthy between trips being canceled and so many special events being postponed.  If you are planning on sending a holiday photo card, we have a few ideas that may help inspire you design your own.

 

Since we all have to wear masks, why not make it part of your holiday card?  It’s a fun way to capture the feeling of the year as well as a great way to remember 2020.  Card shown:  Let It Snow Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

From Zoom meetings to online classrooms, you can capture the year with snapshots of your everyday life.  Card shown: Zoom Call Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

With everyone being told to stay at home, a beautiful photo outside in nature speaks volumes this year.  A simple, sweet picture has more meaning as we’ve slowed down to appreciate the quieter moments.  Card shown: Merry Everything Vertical Holiday Photo Card.

 

If this year really threw you for a loop (and honestly – that would include everyone!), have some fun with a silly picture that can find the humor this holiday season.  Card shown: Foil Happy Holidays Flat Photo Cards.

 

Speaking of humor, have a LOT of fun like our Tastemaker Trae Bodge did with her holiday card.  She kept the mood light and fun this year.  Card shown: Colorful Bordered Holiday Photo Card.

What kind of holiday card do you plan on doing this year?

It’s a Wrap!

17 Nov

 

The holidays can be stressful!  We work so hard trying to buy the right gifts for everyone on our list and getting it all done in time so we can enjoy the time with friends and family.  I enjoy wrapping the presents with beautiful paper and ribbons so they look great under the tree.  I know that’s the part most people dread!  But it you plan and add some fun elements to your gift wrapping, you can really make if bearable (it’s true!).  Here are some gift wrapping tips that have worked well for me:

  • Invest in one of those plastic bins or containers that let’s you organize your wrapping supplies.  It really helps when you’re ready to wrap!
  • Shop right after the holidays for great sales on gift wrapping supplies.  Store away for the following year.
  • Focus on one element that will really make your gifts stand out.  Maybe you choose personalized gift wrap and then a simple ribbon.  Or try simple paper and beautiful, bold ribbon.
  • Have the kids get in on the fun!  Give them a roll of kraft paper and they can doodle holiday pictures and messages.
  • Try personalized gift tags to save time and give presents a beautiful finishing touch.
  • Tie it all up with personalized ribbon.  It dresses up every gift!  Personalized ribbon is great for wine bottles and homemade treats, too.

What ideas do you have for gift wrapping that help you make it fun, creative or time-saving?  Let us know in the comments below!

Happy Holidays!

I know … we are barely into November and I keep talking about holiday cards.  But I am a planner and like to get everything ready so I can be prepared when it’s time to get my holiday cards and packages sent out.  I love making sure my envelopes look festive so when they arrive in the mailbox they really stand out.  The Stationery Studio has a great selection of address labels that make your holiday cards and packages looked polished.  Check out these fun picks that I absolutely love.  Click on your favorite(s) to personalize your own!

I’d also love to share some ideas for other great uses for our Christmas address labels:

  • Stick these on cookie boxes for your neighbors and friends.
  • Perfect to use on teacher gifts – they know where to send a thank you!
  • Use these on envelopes when tipping people during the holiday season.
  • Make great last minute gift stickers!
  • Save the rest for the thank you notes for the holiday gifts.

What other uses do you have for address labels?  I would love to hear your thoughts!
