Christmas Cards and a Giveaway!!

I love sending and receiving Christmas cards! I have blogged about them every year since I started blogging. You can see our cards from  last year here. Aedan looks like such a baby and well, Adelaide was such a baby!!

We had family pictures taken last weekend and I can not wait to pick out cards for this year!

I have been using Shutterfly for our Christmas cards (as well as any shower invitations I have ordered) for the past few years. They have such a great selection and their customer service is awesome.

In fact earlier this year, I ordered some invitations for my best friend’s baby shower. Right after I submitted my order, I realized I had misspelled the street name. I immediately called customer service and the representative that helped me was great! She looked up my order, made the changes and sent me a proof to okay the change. The invitations still arrived ahead of schedule too!

Back to Christmas cards…this year Shutterfly has tons of options with some new designs and styles.

New card design styles for 2013  include 5x7 folded tri fold & back of card designs

o Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram

o Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter, Instagram pictures are perfect for this style

o Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments

o Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun

o Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas

o Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights

You can check out all the options here, but below are some of my favorites (click on the image to go directly to that cards page).

I love that you can write a little blurb under each picture in this one…

I love the simplicity and the colors of this one…

I like the bright colors of this one…

And how much fun are these photo gifts?

iPad cases…

And phone cases for both the galaxy and iPhone…
