AnnaChallenge Holiday Printable (Dec. 9-22, 2013)

Good morning, it’s bi-monthly Monday and time for a new AnnaChallenge. Thank you all for participating in our last challenge ’Tis the Season. Congrats to secima for being the lucky winner of the $5 gift kard to Anna’s Shop


Please join us in our new Challenge
Holiday Printable
December 9-22, 2013.


We are challenging you to create a holiday-themed printable! I’ve created three printables and displayed them here in the context of this challenge announcement…in ‘digital format’ BEFORE printing and cutting out. You can post in the challenge two different ways: 1) Show us the digital version of your printable BEFORE printing; or 2) Actually design printable, print, trim, add ribbon or any other hybrid elements you desire; then photograph and post your photograph/or use photograph of paper item in a scrapbook page layout.

If I wanted to print, cut out, and use these printables, I would place one on a new, blank page and duplicate it until I filled the page with multiple copies of the printable; print; cut with paper cutter or scissors; punch hole for string or ribbon.

The circular printables could be used to tag your guests’ wine glasses or as a gift tag. You’ll want to either: omit names and fill in later with a pen/marker or individualize each digital tag with a name before printing. After printing one page of multiple tags on a sheet of white or cream card stock, you can use a scrapbook punch of the same size to punch the circles. Punch a small hole near edge with hole punch and add string or ribbon.

The vertical tag in this challenge announcement was created by starting with a new, blank page, size 2.5” x 5” and digitally ‘decorating’ it just as you would create a scrapbook page. Again, print multiple copies on cardstock, trim, punch hole, add string or ribbon.

The horizontal example here is an invitation. I made it 4” x9” to fit a traditional size business envelope. Use the same steps as above after creating one invitation, duplicate it one or more times (dependent on the size of your cardstock), print, trim, and send!

You could also create:
A Holiday Thank You Card or Letter
A Holiday Greeting Card
A Wish List with blank lines
A Gift Certificate/Example: For Dinner and a Movie
Name Place Cards for your Holiday Table

Here are some AnnaProducts to inspire you further.

You can also use other designer’s products, too, as long as your page contains some Anna products.

Upload your page to Anna’s Gallery by Sunday, December 22, 2013 (5pm EST), with AnnaChallenge in the title and post it in the forum so we can all admire your work.

One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $5 GiftKard to Anna’s Shop. The winner will be posted on Monday, December 23, 2013.

Thank you all for participating!
Anna and the Team
