Here’s your 2018 Christmas Card Checklist!

National Checklist Day

Today, October 30th, is National Checklist Day.  I swear by checklists; it’s how I can stay on top of all the things I need to get done.  Before Planners were all the rage, I was all about creating checklists and organizing the daily tasks I needed to complete.

In honor of it being National Checklist Day, I thought we could map out your 2018 Christmas Card Checklist.  Ready?

2018 Christmas Card Checklist

Easy enough, right?  Now is the perfect time to get started.  I hope the checklist helps you break down the process into smaller manageable tasks.  In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing a variety of holiday cards and projects that will hopefully inspire you as you think about the design of your Christmas card for 2018.

The Great Outdoors Kit

In addition to the True North Cardmaking & Scrapbooking Kit I shared a few days ago, Close To My Heart is also offering a 2nd *NEW* Kit in celebration of the 15 years in Canada.

The Great Outdoors Kit Contents

The Great Outdoors Cardmaking & Scrapbooking Kit comes with enough supplies to create two 2-page scrapbook pages as well as 4 cards.

Great Outdoors Stamp Set

And just like the True North Kit, it was created with Canada in mind but it has plenty of other elements to be used beyond that.  Plus, you save 25% off the retail cost of the individual items when you purchase the complete kit.

To see photos of the layouts and cards you can create with this kit as well as to purchase your own kit, visit my ONLINE CTMH STORE.
