Shutterfly Holiday Cards!

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is sending Christmas cards. It’s such a grown-up thing to do! Every year, I meticulously plan our family photo session — what we’ll wear, the decorations, etc.

Then, I order my favorite cards online and have them addressed, stamped and ready to mail in early December. The last two years, I’ve used Shutterfly to print my cards and loved the quality.

There’s only one problem with my plan this year: A new little addition (cough, Andrew, cough) could come at any time in December. And we can’t take family photos without our new addition!

I’m thinking this year, I’ll go with a fairly simple design with a baby bump photo (with the belly wrapped in a ribbon and a tag that says, “Do not open until Dec. 28″).

Then, we can send a birth announcement after he’s born.

I’m really digging this design:

What do you think?

For all of you who can actually take family photos this year and send cards, here are some of my absolute favorites from the Shutterfly website:

Isn’t the one with the baby adorable? If Andrew comes before Christmas, we may have to go with that one.

Be sure to check out the Christmas cards, holiday cards and photo Christmas cards at the Shutterfly website!

    I am a shutterfly fanatic!!! My favorite holiday card is the merry memories collage by far. I haved loved all the cards n announcements I have purchased before and hoping I can give Christmas cards out to everyone this year.

  6. I love the ones with snow…that are more “wintery” since we have a number of friends who don’t celebrate Christmas, but we still like to send cards to. I think my fave right now is Sparkling Snowflakes

    I like the Holiday Letter Christmas Card – since it combines a photo and a brief newsletter all in one!

    I cant say exactly whats my favorite since i love shutterly’s cards designs very much that i created 3 sets of holiday cards to send to family back home in Philippines and friends around the world. I love how i can be in control of what pics and design to put in and the message i want to convey.. I like it that shutterfly has religious designs and sayings. :)

  9. I have been on the Shutterfly site for a while trying to pick out my favorite and which card I want to use this year… and I have no clue! I do like the cards that have lots of slots for photos!
