I already have all the papers. Now I need to figure out what I want to do with them. I usually do a 6X6 card because it's easy to cut down the 12X12 paper and I like to include a 4X6 picture with the card. Guess it's time to hit Pinterest for some inspiration.

Are you using a certain paper collection? Or did you gather supplies and make your own kit? Do you make them all the same or make them all different?
My mom and I made a bunch of cards today for a holiday card drive. The cards will go to elderly patients in nursing homes. Every one of our cards is totally different. Mom asked if I would be interested in making cards this Christmas. She's going to make some for her coworkers, but I'm still undecided.

I am looking for some inspiration too. I make the kits to produce 100 cards for our hospital and need something easy enough to make yet pretty and cost effective. I'll try pinterest too... see you there and good luck to us!!

I was in your shoes a couple of weeks ago. I make about 35 every year and although the colours may be different, the design is always the same. Two years ago I had so many ideas spinning around that I decided to make them all different. It was a complete disaster and I hated every one of them so I went back to one design. I've got about half of mine done so far. I'm hoping to finish the rest of them this afternoon. Pinterest is a great source for inspiration. I have a ton of stuff pinned and managed to come up with my design by combining a few things I loved to create my own unique card. I love making Christmas cards. It always gets me in the mood for Christmas!

I'm in a similar boat...only I don't even have any supplies yet. I used to make them all different, but it was way to hard to come up with that many new ideas so now I pick a design, and make them all the same. Much easier.

Last year she did a whole video series of holiday cards that I thought were really good! She's so creative and I think has a good eye for creating a balanced looking card using a variety of elements.
I'm hoping she decides to do another series again this year!
