As the holidays are sneaking up on us and I’m thinking more and more about simplicity this year, I have fallen in love with Shutterfly holiday cards. Every year Ben and I take a picture to send in a Christmas card to our family and friends. Many of you may remember last year’s card where we “announced” the upcoming arrival of Tipp by standing in front of our Christmas tree holding one of the first ultrasounds we had of our baby.
For over 5 years now, I have used Shutterfly as a means to upload and store photos, print pictures, and make photobooks for our wedding, vacations and other special moments. After Tipp’s arrival I made it easy on myself and ordered his birth announcements - I could not have been more thrilled with them and they were a piece of cake to make! Never mind the quick turn around! Typically for Christmas cards I find them on sale the previous year, print each photo and stuff them myself. But, this year I think I would much rather let someone else do that work and spend the time with Tipp.
I love receiving Christmas cards, especially with photos of our family and friends. As our families are growing it is a treat to see updates, as well as get personalized wishes for the Holidays and New Year. And honestly, my first thought when we found out we were expecting was being able to send adorable Holiday photo cards featuring Tipp year and after year! This year Shutterfly has so many bright and cheery designs that I do not know how we will narrow down our choice. They range from classy to whimsical and have cards to fit every personality. Here are a few of my favorite designs:
Now the only other hard part will be narrowing down my favorite photo or photos of Tipp to send!
