Hopefully these colors inspire you to create something cute. If you're looking for more Christmas color palettes, you can click here to see last year's Christmas color palettes. Enjoy!

    New Christmas Card Designs

    I've been busy designing some new Ready-to-Go Christmas Cards. Tell me, which one is your favorite?  



    My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software GIVEAWAY

    I use Adobe Photoshop Elements to create all the cards and printables on Charming Bliss. I also use it to create digital scrapbook pages, but it's not an easy program to learn. It's taken years and years of playing around with things to figure out how to create what I want.

    When My Memories contacted me about hosting a giveaway of their #1 rated digital scrapbook software, I was really excited! They gave me a copy to try, so here's what I made...

    It only took me a few minutes to make this cute page. The cool thing is that this program allows you to do a lot of the same things that you can do in Photoshop, but it's easier and more intuitive. You can add shadows to objects and you can use a color-picker to match the colors to those in your photos. There are lots of predesigned templates and albums for you to use. You can also create videos and add them to music. If you've ever been tempted to try digital scrapbooking, this is your chance.

    My Memories Suite is giving away their software to one lucky Charming Bliss reader!! To enter the giveaway, visit and look at the digital paper packs, then come back to my blog and comment which pack is your favorite.

    You may earn up to 5 bonus entries. (Be sure you leave a separate comment for each bonus entry telling me what you've done.)
