Christmas Cards from Shutterfly



Every year I receive lots of Christmas cards.  But, there is only one card that sticks out in my mind each year and it's the one that I receive from a friend of mine who uses Shutterfly to make her Christmas cards using photos of her family.

I was so impressed with her cards that, as a Graphic Designer, I had to check this Shutterfly out!  I was not disappointed!  There are so many design choices and options available to make your Christmas cards truly unique and special!  There are also several other cool gift ideas such as calendarsChristmas photo books and personalized gifts.  AND, you don't have to be a Graphic Designer to make fabulous cards and gifts because the site is simple to use.

A couple of years ago, I used some photos of my hubby and I in our EMT uniforms and Santa hats!  I created a 5x7 photo card that could be framed if the recipient so desired.  They turned out great and the family loved them!

This year, I'm trying to decide which design to use.  Maybe this one...

...I like its classic design.

Or this one...

... I like the bird and the retro design.

Or this one...


... very regal.

Those of you who will be getting a Christmas card from me will just have to wait and see which one I pick!  I may even decide I like another design instead of one of these!  Ah, the joy of being a woman... I can change my mind if I want to... AND get away with it *smile*!

No matter what your design style is, Shutterfly will have something that suits your tastes.  The best part?  The site is simple to use... you don't have to be a Graphic Designer to make fabulous cards and gifts for your loved ones!  And, for all my bloggy photography friends who have tons of photos to choose from, I encourage you to check it out and send a unique Christmas card or gift that your friends and family will surely remember!

Till next time,

That would be a hard decision to make because they are all very nice! I think I really love that one with the red bird best (not surprisingly!) haha
I guess it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards, isn't it? I think there's only about 45 days left until Christmas!

They are all wonderful . Papa and I have been making our own cards for special occations for years he uses a program that he has on the computer and has a fancy printer that prints it all. I like home made cards makes it more personal and special. Have a wonderful evening.

Those look very nice. I will have to check that out sometime.

I hope you choose to do cards instead of those single photo-looking sheets, though.
