Holiday Cards from Shutterfly…

Share To:

As you know, I have been a brand ambassador for Shutterfly this year and it has been such an amazing experience! I have loved getting to know Shutterfly’s product line and have had so much fun coming up with new ideas to share with you each month. For our own holiday cards this year, how could I not go with Shutterfly? Their designs and options are endless. Here are a few of my favorite designs available…


I was so happy we were able to have Rennai from Ten22 Studio do a quick shoot with us up in Flagstaff this year for our holiday cards! I really, really wanted to do photos in the snow because it is our first year having our vacation home up there. The trees are so gorgeous up there, it almost looks like a fake background! I’m so happy with how the photos turned out, considering we did the shoot so quickly because it was freezing and the kids aren’t quite used to the snow yet!


Family Pics

I knew that I wanted a design that was a full photo with a text overlay. The design, Simple Elegance worked out perfectly!


Hand addressed by moi, stamped with my new address stamp and sealed with a heart sticker….they are on their way out today!

You still have time to order your cards! 

Just in the nick of time, we are giving away a $100 credit to Shutterfly!
