Shutterfly Holiday Card Review!!

Christmas is coming. Are you ready?? Do you have any shopping done? Decided how to split time up between different friends, family and holiday get togethers? How about Christmas cards? Have you even started thinking of this yet?? Well, you can tackle some of these tasks now, and get them out of the way in a simple way. Go to Shutterfly for all of your Christmas cards including Thanksgiving cards, holiday photo cards and even New Year’s cards. No matter what type of Holiday you celebrate, Shutterfly has a card for you!

I love Christmas photo cards because I think having a photo of the family or the children really personalizes the card! This is great for a family like mine, who has family in different parts of the country. For those relatives we don't see often, they can get an updated photo of the family! What a great way to say Happy Holidays!!  There are many different designs at  Shutterfly. For a photo lover like me, it is paradise! I love messing around choosing photos, layouts and text! It is alot of fun to choose different combination's!

I had a lot of fun today looking around the selection of cards at Shutterfly.  There were alot of styles, but I liked the ones with places for multiple photos best. I chose this style because it is too hard to choose just one photo, and I like being able to showcase the best photos from the year!  Here are a few I liked:

Peppermint Bliss Christmas Card
The Peppermint Bliss Christmas Card is a favorite of mine, because I could use a photo of each of my kids individually if I choose, or use a combo of family shots and a shot of the three kids together.  However I choose to do it, this card will be a huge hit! The colors are definitely fit for the season, and it is cute without looking too cartoony! I like the peppermint letters too!!

Family Wall Red Christmas Card
The Family Wall red Christmas card caught my eye for a couple reasons. I like the contrast of the black and white photos on the colorful card.  The bright green in the middle is a great accent and ties it together nicely. I also loved that you can use six photos in this card. I would be able to do all the family, a photo of each of the girls, a photo of all three together and a photo of me and the hubby! This is a great way to display multiple photos, and I like that it looks organized and not cluttered!

Many Memories Tree Christmas 5x7 folded card
The Many memories tree Christmas 5x7 folded cards were another unique card that I liked. The combination of color and black and white photos was cute, and I like how the focus of the card is the photos, with something simple in the middle.  I can do a similar combination of group and individual and smaller group shots on this card.  I really enjoy showcasing my family photos and a card like this gives me the opportunity to do that in a creative way.

I really like the ease of ordering the cards too.  Uploading the pictures is simple and on my computer quick!  I have ordered from Shutterfly before and have always enjoyed the ease of ordering and check out!  I have had fun creating their photo books, browsing their photo gifts and more! Shutterfly is a great place for anyone who wants to do something with their photos! Be sure to check them out for your holiday cards!
