GIVEAWAY and Review: Shutterfly Holiday Cards

Do you send out holiday cards? 

Do you personalize your cards with a picture?

Have you tried out Shutterfly Holiday Cards?

I am very excited that this holiday season we will be buying Shutterfly Christmas Cards, using the family portraits we had taken during September (which I will hopefully have in my possession within a month). I did get a sneak preview of a few pictures and am happy with what I have seen.

 Here are a couple of the pictures that I received of my
children that I considering using in my holiday cards this year. Of course, that may change when I see all of the pictures.

Although, I like to choose cards that have spaces for multiple pictures. These pictures also serve as my kids portraits for the year (my daughter is 6 1/2 years old and my son is 3 years old) and so it is important that there is space in the card for their individual pictures.





With Love
Seasonal Chic


I love that with the Shutterfly website I can have the pictures narrowed down by the amount of pictures I would like to include. I know I want at least 3 pictures (since I like all three I have posted here) but if there is a family photo that includes my husband and myself I would like that in the picture as well. So, I have chosen to look at the cards that have spaces for 4+ pictures.




A Wonderful Life
Wreathed Monogram Wishes
There are 556 card choices. WOW! I can't imagine not finding at least one that you would like. I think the problem would be to narrow down your choices. When I narrowed it down to 4+ pictures, I still have 259 cards to choose from. I took it one step further and narrowed it down to a folded card and now I have 138 choices. That is still a lot of choices. So after looking at several I realized I am most drawn to the Classic style, which brought my choices down to 64. I have decided to narrow my choices down to 4 and see what my readers think.


Dreaming of Snowflakes
Type It Out
Of course, I don't want you to think that the only choices are the the 4+ photos in a classic style, so I am going to share 3 other options for you to see as well, but remember there are 556 choices!






Happy Little Tree

It's tough to pick a favorite. Of your 4, I like the one with a brown background. I think my favorite overall is Family Holiday. Some of the ones that incorporate family highlights of the year are fun too!
