Shutterfly Christmas Cards

I'm fresh off of our photo session for our 2011 Christmas card, and I am really grateful that we got some good shots this year. So I thought, I'd take a look at the new designs for Shutterfly cards this year. I used them last year, and they were FANTABULOUS!

Some of the designs I'm loving are:


















I haven't decided 100% on which design I'll use, but when I get our photo CD back - I'm all set to get them ordered. Which will also mean that it's time to get the official 2011 version of the Hawkins Family Newsletter written to be inserted with the cards. It's funny how many times I've been hassled if I don't get that thing written!

We are huge fans of Shutterfly in our house - we used them for both of the boys' birth announcements, we've made photo books, and also made calendars last year for the grandparents. This year, we'll likely turn to Shutterfly for some of our gifts again - because with us living so far away - we want our kiddos to always be front and center for their grandparents.

The cool thing this year is that Shutterfly is allowing me to give away THREE credits for 25 free Christmas cards of your own! Of course you can use them on any cards - so if you happen to celebrate something other than Christmas... you're all set.

  6. I definitely like photo cards best but its an added bonus if they do something like the "Top 10" or "Story" cards.

  8. My favorite kind is newsletter with a photo. If they just send a card, I like at least a handwritten little note at the bottom!

  10. I LOVE photo cards! If no photo card, then a traditional Christmas card with a heartfelt, handwritten message makes me just as happy. :-)
