A Shutterfly Holiday Greeting

As the holidays quickly approach (Thanksgiving is a week from today!), I’ve been thinking about our annual Christmas card.

There are several brands available, but this year we’re planning to use Shutterfly. I like their designs this season, as well as their options beyond a standard photo card. In the past, we have received Shutterfly cards from friends and family – either featuring a single photo, as well a year-in-review collages, which are nice alternatives to the standard Christmas letter. Some cards also feature a timeline of the last year, which is great for a year that featured a wedding, the birth of a child or other big family milestones.

I’m quite partial to the toile design above. Now it’s a matter of getting my kids to stand still for a moment so I can take a photo!

Love their cards. Absolutely beautiful. I say I am going to do this every year, but I end up putting a picture in a card. Great idea.

Very cute! We did Shutterfly last year for our cards and I was VERY happy with the end product (also reasonably priced). I've already picked out a couple of designs from them to use this year, now I just need to get a photo of my girl in front of the tree - too bad she won't sit still long enough for it!

Great choices (my favorite is the first). I do not have a holiday picture planned this year - makes me sad. Maybe I will just surprise my kids...
