Planning Ahead - Shutterfly Christmas Cards - & Giveaway!

**This contest has now ended.  Congrats, Jennifer Isbell!

I realize that most of us are busy carving pumpkins and maybe thinking about roasting turkeys, but it will be time to plan those Christmas cards before you know it!  

I hopped over to the Shutterfly website to see what's happening there, and they have lots of new designs available now!  From Hanukkah to Christmas, kids or pets, you can find a fun design to meet your needs.  I love the new color sets out this year, and there are over 600 cards from which to choose.  With those kinds of numbers, you're sure to find the perfect card for you.

Here are a few of my favorites (apparently I'm really enjoying the brown theme this year):

I love that I can use my great fall pics and order these now!

Isn't this a fun way to include a "Christmas letter?"

You can't leave anyone out with this many pictures - and a "Christmas letter" all in one!

Love this - I could send it as-is!  It looks just like our Bailey.

Rather retro ... cool blues and reds ..

More formal and serene, thoughtful, peaceful.  

Just plain cute.  A great way to feature a new addition!

  1. Shutterfly is great - what a perfect giveaway for this time of year!

  2. We usually do a combination of making and buying, depending on who we're sending them to.

  3. Most of the time we do photo Christmas cards and the last few years my sister has been writing a family letter too. We love Shutterfly!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. We haven't done Christmas cards in the last few years - but the last ones we did were store bought cards with a printed "Christmas letter" folded up and tucked inside. We just had family pictures taken this past weekend, so I am excited about using some of those prints to make cards this year. Extra motivation - our oldest son just got engaged, so it will be fun to send out photos that include her!

    Thank you for the chance to win this!

  5. I buy mine

  6. I take the kids pictures and then make them through shutterfly :)

  7. Typically I purchase them but I have loved staying up to date with friends families with photo cards.

  8. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Shutterfly! Have been a BIG fan & customer for many years! Getting ready to create a sports Share site for my daughters' Girls on the Run team. Love it!

  9. I buy them if I find them on sale, I make some and I do some photos. It depends on the time I have each year and who is on my list.

  10. I send out photo cards now that we have a baby boy! :)

  11. I try to buy them, but have a hard time finding affordable ones!

  12. We do family photo cards, and this would be a great way to stretch the budget!
