A Year In Review
As if die-cut cards and fabric lined envelopes don’t make our Christmas cards special enough, I decided to include a fun little year in review letter. But instead of a dull, wordy letter we opted for a sassy, brief infographic! Can you tell how much I love this? I fell in love with this idea after seeing Amy’s version on My Three Monsters.
I designed the letter with colors that coordinate with our Christmas cards. I found all the icons at The Noun Project. I did have to modify the dog icon to look a bit more like our sweet border collie. Our letter measures 7 x 10″. This was intentional so it could fold in half and fit in our Christmas card envelopes.
For the version I am sharing here I edited some of the personal information…we don’t actually live in a city called Suburbia. My age bubble, though, says “It’s a Secret” on all versions :) I got quite a bit more graphic with the kids information. They both recently had their checkups and I thought it would be fun to put their current heights and weights.
I think the year in review infographic might just become a tradition around here. It was fun to create and hopefully equally as fun for our friends and family to read.

I love it! I’ve been meaning to do something like this one year.
I love this…I’m totally stealing this idea next year:)!

What program did you use to make this? I’ve been wanting to do some like for this a couple of years, but don’t know where to start. Yours looks great!
Sierra, I used Adobe Illustrator to create mine from scratch. Another option would be to modify a newsletter template in your regular word processing program. You can choose a template that has the layout and columns you like, then just put in new text and images. I used the nounproject.com for the icons.
