Our Christmas Gift

I think this is my favorite freebie of the year!! 

I really enjoyed creating this design and I did it with much much love to all my customers and fans! <3 The only thing I could say after this year is THANK YOU!! :) and this is my way to express all the gratitude to you, a FREEBIE, well actually this is my Christmas Gift to you and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I was designing it :D

I know that after 365 days of pics you have miles and miles of cute, funny and lovely moments in your computer, and why not to share those lovely things of the year with your family and friends? So I did a familiar newsletter to do a review of the most beautiful things of 2012.

Use your imagination and have fun! Place pictures of you, your child, pets, vacation times, and any cute image you would like to share with your loved ones. Add your own style and change the colors if you want, send a love message to your family and friends, and you will receive a lots of messages back ;)

This template is a PSD file, is full layered and contain a PDF file with instructions and links ;)

I recommend you to send it as a digital newsletter to your family & friends! Don't forget to spread the love this Christmas and pin it, share and leave a comment if you like it ;)

This one had its start in mid 18th century rural England, Where the farmers had apparently just discovered irony in its most general form. We like to imagine its first usage going something like this:

You need a software program like Photoshop or similar photo editing program that can save or open .PSD files then you can edit the beautiful newsletter. I suggest going to You Tube and searching for programs that show you how to “CREATE a CLIPPING MASK” or similar phrases and it can walk you through the editing process. #1. Photoshop software or similar #2. You Tube instructional videos on clipping masks, layers, etc.
