Free Christmas card templates…plus easy tutorial!

I love receiving Christmas cards, and so does my whole family.  My kids pore over the letters and pictures, reading them over and over again throughout the season.  I also have a Christmas Memories Book, and I keep all of the cards we receive each year.  It's so fun to look back over the years and see how our friends and family have grown and changed.

I also look forward to sending cards, and it's a tradition that our family loves to to together.  Our Christmas card assembly line has been happening for quite a few years now, and it's just one of the things that we love to go together.

Today I'm sharing a few fun Christmas card templates...all you have to do is add your photo, and it's EASY and FREE to do!

Keep your Christmas cards on a ring! | Easy Organization |

Easy organization: keep the Christmas cards you receive on a ring!

I'm kind of in love with book rings.  This holiday season it was the perfect answer to keeping my Christmas cards under control, and I'm excited to share with you this simple holiday organization tip!

I love being able to see all the Christmas cards and letters we receive--it's one of my favorite things!  I look at them all month, then put them in to my Christmas Memories binder after Christmas.   I get a lot of letters and pictures along with cards, and sometimes those have been more difficult to hang or clip up.  I've used several different methods, but this year I decided to try something a little different.
