I love getting and giving Christmas cards! How fun to open the mailbox that precious month between Thanksgiving and Christmas and have all these lovely cards come tumbling out. I love it! I started saving the cards we receive in the mail back in 1996 (when we got married). That year, we sent our very first card out–me and my hubs on our wedding day :)

 I save them all and my books have turned into a “yearbook” of sorts of all our friends and their babies–now kiddos…everyone growing up.
Here is an idea for you to start saving yours…and make your own “yearbook” too.

I bought a scrap book that just has cardstock pages….

Sometimes you find them in the fine art supply section—you can use a good sketch book that has spiral binding. I am not much for scrap booking….just never really got into it. I like to leave the pictures as they are and just glue them on the pages.
Go for it…you will be glad you saved them and have them to look back on every year!

  1. YAY!! My hubby and I got married in 2008. We've saved the Christmas cards we've received because we wanted to have a book of them to look through. I wasn't sure what to do, but this is a great idea!! THANKS!

    Merry Christmas!
