Fall is a Fun Season to Snap the Perfect Photo

1 Oct

Photo Holiday CardsFall is a great time of year for photo taking.  The colors of the season brings many opportunities for perfect pictures for your custom holiday cards!

When you are considering what sort of images are good to use on your holiday card, think out of the box.  There are those fun days where pictures are a natural, such as a family walk on the beach on a cool fall day in white sweaters, standing in front of a red barn (a really fun background), or a visit to a stable to ride horses!

If you are apple picking, taking a hayride, or buying a Halloween pumpkin, remember to capture the moment.! The colors of the fall makes for great photo backgrounds. From trees turning luscious shades of autumn, backgrounds filled with mums in rich shades of oranges, yellows and reds, a walk in beautiful woods or other picturesque locations, the natural scenery of the season is ideal.

Remember to take an extra few minutes to snap the picture! Many people also take their holiday card pictures at Thanksgiving or other seasonal family occasions.  The family pictures are great for Christmas Cards and also for New Year cards.

Wherever you decide to take your pictures, just have fun!  And, remember to take both vertical and horizontal pictures so you have options when selecting your photo cards.

Enjoy the season!

Warmest wishes,


Christmas Cards with Summer Pictures

30 Jul

Summer Holiday CardsAre you a planner?  I’ve been accused of being a big planner.   I think that’s a good thing.  Why wait until the last minute when there might not be enough time to get all your details together.

For me, summer is a great time to take a beautiful family picture on vacation, at the beach, at a family picnic, or by the pretty flowers in your garden.  These are the sort of pictures that can really be a feel good shot when received at holiday time on a Christmas Card or Hanukkah Card.  Remembering a great summertime celebration and seeing all the kids in their cute summer clothes is a breath of fresh air on a snowy day!

This is a great time to gather all those nice pictures and consider which holiday card fits your style.  There are many to pick from and you will love the options.  Perhaps you’ll like a card with foil accents, a die cut card in a great medallion shape, a traditional card such as a border card from Crane & Co. or a whimsical design that suits your fancy.

Another really great benefit for ordering months ahead is that you have a long time to work on the addressing of the envelopes.  There is no rush at a time of year when you have a lot of fall activities and winter parties.  It’s a surprise how pleasant it can be to address envelopes when you are not under any deadline!

So enjoy and plan ahead this year!

Best wishes,
