Cookie Exchange Invitation

One of my favorite holiday traditions is hosting a cookie exchange. It’s a simple premise, doesn’t require much preparation, and, most of all, gives me a chance to catch up with friends over Saturday morning coffee.

I try to plan the exchange for a couple of weeks before Christmas, for just a couple of hours, to step away from the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations and just enjoy a fun morning. I hope you’ll find time to fit in an exchange with your friends and neighbors!

For today’s post, I made this cute invitation in about 15 minutes using Photoshop Elements and a digital download from Stampin’ Up!. Did you know Stampin’ Up! has a huge selection of digital downloads?  Well, they do, and several holiday-themed ones are on sale through the end of November. This happens to be one of them!


I used the Homemade Happiness Printable (Item 132192, on sale for $2.07), then just added the details for my party. Easy-peasy!

  1. Mr. Wonderful said I can come (assuming I get one of them purty invites!?!) if he can come too (or at least bring him home a few samples). Besides, he’s decided you’re his Oma reincarnated since you’re the only one who’s been able to nail her crescent cookies. No pressure, of course! LOL

    Seriously, your invitation is so stinkin’ cute. Even with a cheat sheet, I can’t imagine making it in only 15 minutes. Once again, I’m more than a little impressed. I think you’re now my official crafting superhero.

    • Thanks! The script if called Joy Like Sunshine, the “Cookie Exchange” is Chalk Hand Lettering, and the date and time info is Veggieburger…all free downloads! I’m a font geek, as well as a math one!

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
