I fell madly in love with Minted.com a few years ago. After seeing the beautiful designs on Minted and the thick, rich paper stock, I was hooked. This is my 4th year of full devotion to Minted.com for my holiday cards. This year I reached out (stalked) to Minted. The folks at Minted were wonderful and when I told them that I wanted to do a blog on www.GoKidTrips.com, they offered one lucky reader a $250.00 credit! What the what!!! I am so jealous. In addition to my great love of Minted cards, I also have a serious crush on the new line of Minted artwork. California Dreaming hangs in my family room and often grabs the attention of my guests.
To be honest I am really excited to get the word out about this great company. I have always thought of Minted as a hidden treasure filled with unique artisans. I only found out about Minted after a friend used them for her holiday cards. The paper stock and print quality immediately grabbed my attention. When I visited the website, I was amazed at how many beautiful options were available for every occasion. Over the years the offering has grown to include: artwork, holiday decor, stationery, notebooks, calendars and even some adorable signs for nurseries. Given the season, I thought it best to focus on the stunning holiday cards that Minted is offering. For those that love the "pretty", you must visit the Minted website and sign up for a catalog.

Plus one of my favorite things about Minted this year is the FREE, FOR A LIMITED TIME, RECIPIENT ADDRESSING! I took some time to put all of my 80+ addresses into an MS Excel file. It was pretty simple to create the MS Excel sheet and upload the file to Minted. They spit out an online Minted address book that you can modify if needed. You can also type in your own names in their system. They make it very easy to use the address tool. Once you have your addresses loaded, you can pick from a number lovely holiday designs for your envelope and then they do the work.
Loading the addresses into a file was a onetime exercise that yielded HUGE dividends. My cards arrived with every envelop addressed. Stuff, seal and stamp...DONE! It was a beautiful thing! Again, it was worth the time investment. This is NEW and I am not sure when the FREE, FOR A LIMITED, TIME RECIPIENT ADDRESSING will end. Great marketing tool! I am now hooked for next year.
Now for the fun part! Minted is giving one lucky reader a chance to win a $250.00 credit. Visit this link to find out more details and sign up for a chance to win. Plus, be sure and sign up for Minted alerts. Minted runs some amazing deals during the holiday card season.
Don't forget, Minted offers some awesome options for the back of your card. Many folks opt to write a message or share a picture of the family pet. I indulged in more family photos. Good luck in the GIVEAWAY and happy shopping on one of my favorite websites!
