New 2013 cards, a holiday mosaic card template + a giveaway

I’ve got a couple of new products in the shop to help you get a jump start on the holidays, and also a really exciting giveaway, so stick with me to the end of the post to get full details on that.

First, the 2013 Calendar Journaling Cards are now available. Each card is 3×4, sized perfectly for Project Life. The cards are provided as easy-to-print high resolution pdf files and also as individual PNG files. And lastly, PSD versions of the PDF and individual cards are also included in this kit so you can easily recolor/customize the elements to fit your project needs.

Two versions of these cards are available for purchase: The US Version (Sunday – Saturday format) and the European Version (Monday – Saturday format). Both are 20% OFF thru the weekend.

I haven’t used the 2013 Cards in my project life album, but here’s a look at what the cards would look like in the project life sleeves. (2012 edition of the cards are shown)

The cards also work as a great embellishment on digital layouts.

Second, is happiness & joy, a 5×7 holiday mosaic card template.

Happiness & Joy is 20% off thru Sunday, November 18th. This 5×7 holiday card template includes both front + back designs. All layers are fully editable so you can customize (change colors, change text, etc.) to suit your needs.

Kit includes a few different options:

  • a set of templates designed to Persnickety Prints print specifications
  • a set of templates designed to WHCC print specifications
  • one single sided 5×7 photographic print template (so you can send to any photo lab that prints 5×7’s – it’s the most economical option but keep in that that the end product if you go this route is just a single sided print.

I’ve used this design to make our holiday cards – going on three years now.

I ordered my cards through WHCC.  The first two years I chose the watercolor finish but last year I chose the pearl finish and that’s what I’m going with this year too.  The sparkly, shimmery sheen is so perfect for the holidays! My photo above doesn’t do it justice! It’s one of those things you have to see in person to fully appreciate its beauty. Persnickety Prints also offers the pearl cardstock, I might try that for this years order.

And now are you ready for the best part of today’s post?  I’m hosting a joint giveaway with Persnickety Prints – you can enter for a chance to win a 5×7 25 Card Pack here and then head over to Persnickety Prints to enter to win my happiness & joy holiday card template.

i just *love* your card design! i think a photo collage/mosaic is such a cool way to sum up the year that has just passed…and looking back on them year after year, seeing all of the changes and the things that have stayed the same…amazing 🙂 for the past three years, we’ve made a very simple photo mosaic that we printed and sent out to family and friends as part of our christmas card, but then we also had it printed as an 11 x 14 and framed it for ourselves. it’s nice to see all three years hanging together…definitely using your template for this years card + print 🙂

I just purchased both the calendars and the card template and I can’t wait to have some fun. I was looking for the perfect Christmas card and so happy you created this option along with the compatibility with Persnickety (easy is o very nice). I am going to use the calendars as gift tags throughout the year as well as with Project Life. How perfect would they be as a gift tag where you can circle the special date whether it be a birthday, holiday, or to remind someone of a date when they deserved to be thanked. I am in love with these calendars already! Additionally, thank you for the discounted price…you are most awesome. 😉

Bonnie! That is EXACTLY what I do with these 3×4 calendars too! PL and little birthday cards:) 🙂
