Layered Template #38 - 7 Photo


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..... and the gifts are NEARLY done!

I want to give two quick plugs. I used two "new" (to me) printing services this year, and was really quite happy with both of them.

1) http://www.lulu.com/ -- I used this for printing planners and calendars as gifts for family. Amazingly good price! I printed a paperback book instead of a photobook for the planner, and it cost me just $14.95 (if I remember right) for one (plus shipping). And that was without any discounts! I was very happy with the print and book quality -- the only complaints I have are my own doing (I didn't read the trim specifications -- actually, I did, but decided I didn't care enough to go redo it!)

2) http://www.vistaprint.com/ -- I had my Christmas cards printed her. LOVE them! They have a cool feature where they can print the front AND the back of the card -- so the front has our normal greeting on it, and the back has the kids with a little extra blurb. Free envelopes came with the order. My only complaint about them was that the quantities went from 100 to 200, and I needed 150. There was no way to add just 50 more. However, I called their customer service, and they were very helpful and got the order just right. They arrived yesterday, so now I'm off to the PO to buy stamps!

Enough of my plugs -- HERE is the next template! (link removed)

So happy to hear that things are moving along. I know you miss your family and long for the day when everyone is back safely in your arms. Glad you have your laptop with you to keep you company and occupy your mind. LOL. I prayed that your new employment would be more than ever expected. Thanks for the awesome template. It most ceretainly will be used. I wish you, your family, and friends a healthy, blessed, and Merry Christmas.

This is so weird. Your posts with the templates 38-40 are just now showing up in my reader. I haven't been avoiding you, just waiting for you to post. And apparently you were. How is that for odd and by now you are probably in the middle of your move. Anyway, Thank you very much for the templates and now I will start checking back without relying on the reader so much.
