Hallmark’s Pics ‘n’ Props Kits: Keep Track of Important Milestones

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

If you’re a shutterbug and you have a child who’s heading (back) to school, consider picking up a School Days Kit from Hallmark’s Pics ‘n’ Props line.  Also featured in the Goodybag section of our September 2013 issue, the kit comes with fun, chalkboard-themed photo props (a chalkboard and inserts for preschool through 12th grade) that your child can hold up for the camera each year on the first day of school. A photo album is also included, along with journal cards for your child to write down his first-day thoughts.

After taking first day photos, don’t forget to post them to Instagram and include #parentsbts. We’re regramming select photos on the Parents Instagram page.

Don’t have a child in school? There are also kits for pregnant moms (Baby on the Way, to keep track of week-by-week growing bellies, and Boy Watch Me Grow! and Girl Watch Me Grow!, to keep track of growing babies). Or celebrate first birthdays (with gender-specific color banners) and upcoming holidays.

The creative kits are great for moms who are short on time or who lack DIY know-how — so start snapping away!

Postage-Paid Greeting Cards from Hallmark

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Now, there are no more excuses for not sending a card because you couldn’t find a stamp – pick up a postage-paid Hallmark card instead.  Released earlier this year, the collection of Postage-Paid Greetings™ is a collaboration between Hallmark and the U.S. Postal Service. 

A barcode on the front of each envelope acts as a Forever stamp (its value will always be the same as a First-Class stamp, so the cards can only be mailed nationally) that indicates the postage was already paid. The cards are available for any occasion (Father’s Day, graduation, birthdays, and more) and cost up to $3.99. You can purchase them at Hallmark Gold Crown stores, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and other locations. 

For busy moms, we know it’s always the little things that matter most, so these postage-paid cards are a great way to save a few extra seconds and minutes in the day.  Just don’t forget the mailing address!

Martha Stewart and the Christmas TreeWhat was craft maven Martha Stewart like at 10-years-old?

We can’t answer the question, but a new holiday cartoon special called “Martha and the Christmas Tree“ will feature an animated 10-year-old Martha Stewart.  The cartoon will be the first in a ”Martha & Friends” TV series that will debut on the Hallmark Channel this upcoming Monday, December 20 at 7:00 pm EST. 

A collaboration between Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, A Squared (A2) Entertainment, and AOLKids, the holiday special will feature “a 10-year old Martha Stewart as a problem-solving, craft-loving, generous spirit who, with the help of her three best friends, comes to the community’s rescue during the holiday season” ( 

A clip of “Martha and the Christmas Tree” shows a 10-year-old Martha with her recognizable adult haircut, dispensing fun advice and tips for Christmas crafting and baking.  The animation, done in sweet, simple pastels also features her two French bulldogs (who talk, of course!).

Four more feature-length cartoons will debut next year along with 26 webisodes (plus related games and projects) on
