I love Christmas Cards!!!

Before:

I love them so much! I love checking the mail everyday! I love watching my friends kids grow up each year! I love the creativity of the photos and the cards!!!

So, I started in 2000, keeping the photocards.

That was "back in the day" when they weren't too trendy. I think that year I got 5 or 6 photo cards. I put them in one large frame...collage style. I did the same thing in 2001 and 2002, but then, I was getting more photocards than I could fit in the frame.

So, then I started scrapbooking them (sort of).

So, here's what I did with this years!


I used my December Scripts Kit, and I made a "cover page"....then I used the Bind-it-All, and bound it on the side! Now, I have a little flip album from 2009! I love it!!!



I will put it away, and bring it out next Christmas, with all of the cards from Christmas' past....and go through it all over again!!!!

Ahhh, I love my photocards!!!!

Good idea! We put all the cards with pictures into an album. We now have two Christmas card albums. We use parts of the non-picture cards as accents for the pages. If/when we get tired of putting the cards into albums, we'll do what you've done. :) We like looking through the cards at Christmas time.
