Christmas gift help: what's a fun way to visually design a different love letter for each month of the year?

For Christmas, my girlfriend has asked for "words" - since most of our communication is via text and email, she only gets little snippets from me. My idea is to hand-write one love letter for each month of 2014 and send it to her on the first of that month. I'm looking for fun ways to make the letters different from month to month, rather than using the same stationery / envelope for each letter. Some thoughts:
1) Different paper for each month, maybe with a seasonal color scheme. I couldn't find much online, I imagine it's hard to get 12 distinct colors of stationery of the same class, and I'd prefer not to buy a ton of paper I'm not going to use.
2) A different sticker or stamp or other "mark" I can put on the envelope or stationery. Again, I hard a hard time finding something like this.
3) A photo of us enclosed with each letter - I think I'm going to do this, any way to jazz it up?
Any ideas where I can find #1 or #2? Or other ways of "theming" the letters to create some variety? I'm sure she'd be happy with just the words (that's the point after all) but I'm hoping to put a creative spin on this idea and coming up a little blank.
