Merry Monday: Jumping Jax Designs...

We are continuing to share the design love with you this week by featuring some of the AWESOME work of Becca from Jumping Jax Designs.

You may recognize her from our amazing blog template
(because yeah... she does more than design cards)

So this week we are featuring nothing but JJD starting with Becca's only darling family...

Who: Travis (Dad), Becca (Mom), Jax (4) and Jory (2)

Location: a field in Bryan, TX (front) and Santa’s Wonderland in College Station, TX (back)

Props: We just brought blankets to sit on for the park scene and for the back photo, Santa’s Wonderland has an adorable little Santa setup for photos & memories!!

Clothes: Travis:
Old Navy hoodie & pants, Becca: Old Navy shirt, Target skirt, Jax: Old Navy vest, shirt & jeans, Jory: Old Navy cardigan & shirt, Children's Place skirt, headband by Little Roo’s Boutique & boots from Kohl’s.

Comments: This card turned out different from what I had planned, since I originally intended  to match it to our outfits. Right before I sent the card file to the printer, we went to Santa’s Wonderland for photos with Santa and I just LOVE how this one came out so I had to somehow work it in! After playing with a few (okay like 20 ;)) different designs and layouts, I finally settled on a more traditional color scheme, which helped to tie in the photo on the back a bit better than if I had used navy, coral & mustard in the design.

Designer: Yours truly! I have a design business called
Jumping Jax Designs. You can see more of my cards (and more pictures from that session, too!) on my website.

Photographer: Sarah Burns of
Butterfly Chaser Photography

Favorite Thing: The gold glitter confetti! I also totally love the back of the card and I hope all of the recipients got a good giggle out of poor Jory’s expression. She was not a fan of Santa, hoping this year is better!

Blog: You can view our (very neglected) personal blog at
The Paro Post or my website at Jumping Jax Designs.

 Momma's Thoughts: Whoa. Becca - a last minute game change. You are brave! And we love it. As much as the Momma's love a good posed pic - we also love those candid  moments that life brings. We also love Becca's clean design - which is what you can expect from all of her work. A polished look that is as unique as you!! Check her out!

How can you recreate this card: Three words. Crying Santa Pics. Ok, so we know Jory isn't technically crying, but we do love a good crying Santa...
