Mother’s Day Ideas

Does your mom deserve a special shout out this Mother’s Day? Well Heritage Makers has gifts and greetings to make her day one she’ll really remember!

Hats Off to Mom x 100!Let her know how love and appreciated she is with a “100 Things I Love About You, Mom” 7 x 5 storybook, template 56347, by Lynda Angelastro. Write what you appreciate about mom inside this beautiful purse-packable book. Divide the 100 “things” up between your brothers and sisters or interview the grandchildren to make filling the book faster. Only one, first-page photo of mom is needed. It’s fast, it’s heartfelt and one thing is certain: mom will treasure it forever.

An All Year Long Thank You
Give a gift that will display your gratitude all year long with a subway art-styled poster like this one from Karilyn Pieratt. It’s template 83853, “Mother’s Believe Subway Art Poster,” made from an 11 x 14 poster. Karilyn also created a poster made from an 8.5 x 11 scrapbook page, designed to be shown off in an 8 x 10 photo frame. This pink poster, made just for Mother’s Day, is called “Mother's Day 8 x 10 Subway Art” and is template 83854.

Recipe Cards GiftSearch online or go to your local high-end kitchen gadget store and you’ll find clear acrylic recipe boxes in the 6 x 4 size. Pair the recipe box with 6 x 4 invitations made into recipe cards and you have a winner of a Mother’s Day gift. Ann Perry has a set in blue, shown here, template 80515, named “Recipe Card,” but search the Template Gallery and you’ll find many styles and colors from various designers. And really, what could be more flattering or appreciated than for mom to have her recipes in printed form? Saves some sibling rivalry too because mom’s recipes will now be easily be duplicated for all.

The Faces She LovesMom or grandma will go gaga over a Mother’s Day card featuring the faces of the little ones she loves. Check out our super popular template 61575, “Mother's Day Card” by Julie Young, a 7 x 5 greeting card. With its pink and pretty design and space for three photos, it will be an instant hit. Use a single photo of all the kids together (or this be one of the cards each child gives) with template 8602 by Elisa Black. It’s called “Green Mother's Day Photo Card” and is a perennial favorite.

Cards Designed Just for HerDo click the “preview” link while you’re searching for that special card in the gallery. Many cards that are beautifully designed on the outside have a place for the photo that will touch her heart on the inside!

“Amazing Mother Card” by Karilyn Pieratt, 5 x 7 greeting card, template 83852 is a good example. Show off a photo of grandma’s younger days with “HM M is for Mother” by Roxanne Buchholz, a 5 x 7 greeting card template 81708. And for another “fancy outside, photo inside” card check out Michelle Bell’s “Mother’s Day Flowers,” template 21453, also a 5 x 7 greeting card.

In Her Favorite ColorIf your mom loves blue, check out “Bright Mother's Day” by Michelle Bell, a 7 x 5 greeting card, template 21395 or “Blue Butterfly” by Leanne Reist-Barr, another 7 x 5 greeting card, template 54770. But remember, it’s easy to swap out papers! In Studio every-element is swappable, so that blue could just as easily be purple, if that’s the color she loves the best or to match that special photo you want to choose.
