New Years Decorating

By Victoria Smith of SF Girl by Bay

Note from the Editor

By Liz Stanley, Managing Editor

I hope you all have a wonderful, joyous holiday season! Can you believe it’s here already? I wanted to share with you these holiday cards my family sent out this year. I ordered Minted’s twisted peppermint holiday non-photo card and then manipulated a photobooth image in illustrator with some festive graphics. We didn’t have time to take professional photos so I wanted something a little silly and fun. Are you sending out cards this year?

Have a wonderful weekend and holiday!

Love, Liz + The Julep Editors
