Shutterfly Cards

 Update!  This is the front picture of my folding photo card :)  You like?  I don't wanna show the actual card (though I have to a couple people) cuz then it will ruin the surprise.  

These 2 pix are on the inside.

I just love making Christmas cards and usually I just do the photocards that are printed on photo paper, but Shutterfly was SO generous this year for us bloggers and they gave me a code for 50 free 5x7 folded or flat stationary cards printed on premium card stock!  These cards are over $2 each, but with the promo, I only had to pay shipping on them, which was $7.99.  Not bad for 50 cute cards huh?

I love doing photo cards every year.  I used Shutterfly last year for my photo cards once again because they do such a great job.  I was able to put 3 pictures on the card and everyone loved them.  I'm going to be ordering a few things from Shutterfly this Holiday season, but my primary focus is on making the perfect Christmas photo card.

In the past I've created some photo mugs too for my dad and myself to commemorate our 7 mile hike at Crowder's Mountain.  Every time I use it, I remember our trip and how crazy we were to drag 2 kids (4 month old and 20 month old) on a long hike like that!

This year, I also plan to do a cookie exchange in December and have been looking at all the great Christmas invitations that Shutterfly has too.

My favorite thing to make though, are the photo books.  I have created one for each of my children to remember their first year.  I've also been wanting to make a family tree photo book so they can look at pictures of all their relatives.  Whatever your family is into, Shutterfly always has a great way to remember certain events or moments in your life.  Photographs are priceless and I love to show off my 2 beautiful children :).

50 free photo cards for bloggers :)
