Our first kiddo card.
It’s kind of ridiculous how much joy holiday cards bring to my heart. I love pretty much everything about them-making them, receiving them and displaying them. For years, I’ve been trying to put together a book of all the cards we’ve put out since our first in 2005 of our wedding. Considering how easy this was to do, I don’t know why it took so long. The hardest part was tracking them all down. Shot out to Auntie Kathy and Michelle Warren for providing the missing pieces to this puzzle and donating your copies. I used this Kolo Newbury album, my favorite, and chose holiday red, also my favorite. Another key piece is Kolo’s clear adhesive photo corners. (See video below) Someday my kids won’t be as willing to be in these family photos, and I probably won’t be as willing to get in front of the camera with them, so I’m glad I’ve got these put away for safe keeping. The album has 20 pages and right now I can’t imagine filling them all. How could my sweet babes ever be twenty-years-old!?! I put this together last night and I’ve already gone through it about twenty times. ‘Cause really what’s better than watching your family grow right before your eyes? Not much in my book, pun very much intended.
PS-no, I’m not peeking on eggnog, just having a good day. Hope you are too.
Every year I’ll change the cover to show that year’s card. Spoiler alert!
The clear corners disappear and allow you to take the card out to see the inside then put it back in place.
I love Kolo’s details. So simple and clean.
