Holiday Shop Introductions | My Christmas Cards

Creative ShopGina PaulsonComment

Now that Halloween is over, I can officially start gearing up for Christmas. Okay, in the retail world this actually started months ago but I've been saving up to share with you guys! I have a few products that I can't wait to put out there and offer to you this holiday season! The first one actually came by popular request by friends and family and I've created a process that allows me to share it with even more people now! 

Meet my SEMI-CUSTOM Holiday Cards (which also happen to be my ACTUAL Christmas cards for 2015, adorbs right? Thanks Jordan for capturing our wedding so beautifully

What does SEMI-CUSTOM mean? Well as much as I would LOOVEE to hand-design a fully custom card for every human possible, I wanted an option that was cheaper and quicker for people. (Though, if you still want something totally custom- I'm all ears!) These are hand-lettered by me and the designs have the ability to be customized to your photos. So if you need to change the size, placement or color of any of them it can easily be done. I'm printing these on some really nice 110 lb cardstock and they come with envelopes! They are one sided and sharpie proof so if you do want to add your own little message to the back of any of them, you totally can! 

So how does it work? Check out the SHOP here  Under Almost-Custom Holiday Cards, you can view a large selection of ideas for the cards and start to get an idea of what you want. 

  1. Decide on how many photos you have and you want to use and decide on what saying you want on the card
  2. Select how many cards you need and click Add To Cart (NOTE: Shipping is already factored into cost, so there are no additional costs!) 
  3. Follow check out instructions on website
  5. You'll receive a digtial proof within 48 hours. EMAIL ME BACK with your approval.
  6. You receive them within 2 weeks. BOOM. DONE. 

Feel free to email me with ANY questions you have or if you're not sure which photo would look best you may send a couple and I can help you decide. I'm REALLY in LOVE with these cards, I want to make one for myself in like every design, that's normal right? I'd love to help you create your own custom Christmas card so let's do it! GO CHECK THEM OUT!! Thanks, friends! 

My SHOP!! | Holiday 2015

I'm scared! 

First off, HAPPY MONDAY! Let me just take a second to say that I've been really nervous to write this for literally no reason.  But today, I'm SHARING my shop with you guys. It's just a baby, no literally, there's like 10 things. BUT they are a handful of extremely special, magical, heart-filled things that I'm really excited to share with you guys. 

I'm going to be doing a few highlight posts in the next couple of weeks to give you a better look at some of the items I'm so passionate about, but in the meantime, feel free to look around and see what's up. I started working on these around the end of August, just doodling christmas songs and sayings. I've slowly been turning them into products and photographing them and putting them online here but now that its NOVEMBER, I want to broadcast this goodness. Also, Starbucks released their new red cups yesterday so basically this is TOTALLY okay. So, HERE IT IS!! 

I'd love to hear what you guys think and if there is anything you're looking for let me know! I do have a small handful of items that are still on their way and will get added as soon as possible so please do check back in the next 7 weeks! AND- in an all too real and vulnerable moment, I'm going to be honest with you here, the thought of this "shop" has me terrified for some reason. The funny thing is I've been making these kind of things for people for awhile now but when you deem something a "shop" it becomes super real?! I don't know if it's because I've actually put so much time into something or because it's something I'm genuinely excited about it, but even though it's just a little baby shop with a few items, it's terrifying! There was no instruction manual that came with this, and I'll probably make a few errors but this is something I've found so much enjoyment in over the past couple of months and I am just really excited to share it with you guys. I hope you enjoy it ALMOST as much as I have enjoyed creating it. Any thoughts or questions, PLEAAAAASEEE shoot me a message! I would LOVE to hear from you! 

I'm also going to be giving away a few FREE goodies over the next SEVEN weekends but they're going to be sent out to those who are signed up on my NEWSLETTER. So, if you haven't already, be sure to sign up for my newsletter in the sidebar or at the top of my site to receive free goodies + product announcements. I promise not to flood your inbox, share your email, & you can unsubscribe at any time! :) Cheers!
