Hello and thank you to all the Mixbookers who participated in our 12 Days of MIXmas event! We hope you enjoyed your gifts and cannot wait to see what you create with all your new goodies! We wanted to highlight some of the great responses we received from the past few days.
On the fifth day of MIXmas, Mixbooker Jess sent us her wishlist:
Dear @Mixbook - for
#MIXmas this year, I would like an 8.5X11 Landscape softcover option :)
While it's not something we can promise her, we loved seeing the MIXmas spirit and definitely passed her wishlist along to Santa and his engineers. :)
On day seven, we asked what you looked forward to during the holiday season. Many of the responses touched our hearts and got us excited for the upcoming holiday season. We agree with the first reply; Starbucks' red holiday cups definitely signal the start of the holiday season!
"Starbucks in their holiday cups, while looking at the joy in my kids eyes as we look at Christmas lights on houses."
"The over all feeling. The warmth, excitement, colors, smells. Its that invisible presence of it all that touches the heart."
"Creating mixbook calendars as gifts for friends and family! It's always a holiday hit!"
We especially loved the "first-timer" replies, whether it's going to be your first Christmas as a mother, or your first Christmas as husband and wife!
"Family baking homemade Christmas cookies - looking forward to continuing this tradition as a new mom this year"
"Spending time with family, especially this Christmas; it'll be our first Christmas as a married couple!! Married in 2 weeks!!"
Our free book winner, however, had us laughing at her cleverness! While others are fearful of all the holiday food, Stacy looks forward to enjoying the good eats! Read her reply, below:
"What I look forward to the most during the holiday is all of the extra weight I put on. ;)"
For the last day of MIXmas, we decided to hold a contest to see just how creative our Mixbookers could get! The task? To use the freebies you've collected over the past 12 days of MIXmas to create a unique card! This grand prize winner will be receiving an LG Mouse Scanner which allows you to easily scan photos, tickets and artwork onto your computer. This is a great tool for avid Mixbookers because it allows you to quickly scan tickets stubs and other memorabilia into your Mixbook project!
Our winner, Alena, put together a card that shows off her family having fun, no matter what the weather! We especially loved how she used the inside of her folded card to display a family photo from each of the four seasons. Great job, Alena! :)
If you missed any of the presents from the 12 Day of MIXmas, not to worry! Head on over to our Social Team account and make a copy of all the freebie projects. Act fast because these freebies will only be available until August 5th!
Insider Tip: If you look closely, you'll notice that each project can be utilized as its own card! Simply edit the inside and you've got a holiday card ready to go! *Each project is custom made and cannot be found as a current theme on the site. :)
We hope you enjoyed this event as much as we did! If there's anything you especially loved, please let us know in the comments below! We love hearing feedback on how we can better your Mixbook experience! Until next time, keep up the Mixbooking!
