Personalised Cards & Gift Tags

I love sending (and receiving, but no-one ever does! :-(   )  personalised presents and cards.  When I gave my cousin the mini photo album of her son taken over 20 years ago, she was absolutely delighted.  This is why I will be making the majority of my presents & cards in a personal way this Christmas.

I was delighted to find that the HP Creativity website have got LOADS of items to personalise (free) including these gift tags that I have made.   (Some of the options incidently, use Smilebox technology, which is a program that gets put on your computer. There are other options including Disney Xmas - these are on the theme of 'A Christmas Carol' but you don't have to use these).

I also used something else 'free' to make these pictures:
The background papers were 'free' as in they came with a cardmaking magazine this month, 'Papercrafting Essentials'.  You can, of course, get papers free on the internet if you hunt around.  Crafting can be an expensive hobby, so its good to keep the costs down when you can and 'free' and 'personalised' feel good! 

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

Some great ideas here! Google digital scrapbooking freebies and you get all sorts of printables for pages and cards, twopeas have free digi kits as well, so do shabby princess! you can print them and use for your cards. i love personalised items, none of my friends are crafty though so I always give personalised presents but never receive any boo hoo x
