What is better than handmade for the holidays? Put a little extra special DIY into your gift giving by creating your own gift wrap pattern. Purchase one of our Christmas pattern vector graphics, add personal messages or images and then layout multiple of the pattern until it is about 3′x2′. Then upload it to Kinko’s or your local copy center and let them know you want it printed on their blueprint oversize machine. It might take a little more design effort, but our Christmas illustrations can make great wrapping paper too!
For some folks, the season for outdoor sports starts with the first snowfall. Skiers, snowshoers, ice climbers, snowmobliers and other cold weather sport enthusiasts are just waiting for the white stuff to pile up high enough and freeze hard enough for their season of play to being. Cutcaster has a whole lightbox of images perfect for advertising to and announcing to winter athletes that their time is now.
Coming up next Monday we”ll be posting a blog featuring our winter sports lightbox, so we thought it would be a good time to have our sellers check out this blog post on how best to capture one of the hardest types of sports to shoot. Snow+Sun+Action can be incredibly difficult to shoot, but also totally worth the effort.

Even as a pro, exercises and assignments can help to break through creative blocks and inspire new images. Digital Camera World has a set of ” 9 Creative Photo Ideas to Try for November” over on their blog. Get out there and shoot some (or all) of these creative suggestions and then submit your best to us!
