Hi Collin! I sent you a picture I took of my girls last year for Christmas cards and I wanted to send you the one I took this year. I used my $50 off through Tiny Prints to make my cards and I love how they turned out!

    How was this done through Tiny Print? Did you just do photos? I must be dumb, but just curious how this was all put together…from the drawing, to the photos, to which card you selected at Tiny Prints. I am not aware enough to execute this!

    • Jen

      I am wondering this too! Would love details..

      • Jordan

        She did this herself. I did one on our driveway with my kiddos hanging the star on the tree with chalk. Very fun!

    Hi everyone! I actually got the idea from Pinterest and drew the scene on our driveway with sidewalk chalk. I had my girls lay down and act the part! lol I stood on a latter above them and took the picture. I photoshopped the snowflakes, the words and the snowman’s hat, face and buttons because I did not have black chalk. I uploaded the picture to Tiny Prints and used my $50 coupon code.

    We had a food fight in our kitchen (making Christmas cookies) while wearing our matching elf pjs that we got super cheap with the target deal a while back & had a friend there to photograph it. So fun (and messy) but priceless pictures for our Christmas cards!

    • Heather C

      How FUN…. For YOUR family, of course! I don’t need a heart attack.

      • Angie

        I agree Heather, sounds really cute, though. Now THAT is s photo I would love to see!

    • julie

      Aww, we had a mashed potato fight when my oldest were 4&6, they’re 13 and 15 now and still have very fond memories of it. Of course, this was before everyone photographed every second so no pics. Glad you were able to capture and make memories with your family! Blessings!

    Very very beautiful. Really admire it when moms take so much of pains to create such beautiful memories. That looks like one big driveway. Love the way the kid is posed hanging on to mommy. Very realistic.
