meet my good friend, shutterfly!

let me just say it straight up... i'm obsessed with shutterfly.  ob-sessed, i tell you.

i have sent out cards to our family for most holidays this year, even though some of them were just to grandparents.  i'm not good at sending photos regularly, so i think a photo card is perfect for them to see peanut and how much she's grown.  i probably enjoy taking the photos and sending them more that everyone else likes to receive them.  ha!  :)  here was our year in cards....

most holidays, i also ordered matching return address labels.  so simple... when you select your card, they show you the return address label that matches.  or either i would choose a solid color with peanut's photo on it.

i got peanut's birthday invitations designed from a designer, and then had them printed on shutterfly...

i had her these thank you's made for her birthday gifts...
and of course, we had to have the matching labels...

i've also gotten peanut several photo books made throughout this year.  they are so easy to make, and very reasonably priced.  shutterfly is great to their loyal customers, so i often receive discount codes for photo books, cards, or prints.  they also usually have a promo code for free shipping when you spend $30 or more.

i've been thinking about our christmas card all year long.  we took the cheaper route last year, because we had just sent out a whole bunch of birth announcements... like this...

here are a couple of our christmas cards from previous years.  shutterfly always has the cutest designs, and every year they just get better and better...

i haven't picked out the card for this year, but here are a few that i really like...



i loooooove these bright colors!  these christmas cards are also just a few different examples of the styles of cards that you can choose from... square 5x5, regular 5x7, folded 5x7, or 4x8.

when i was looking at christmas cards, i also saw that they have christmas invitations!  who doesn't love christmas parties?!?!?  even if you do have one every. single. night. in the month of december... they're still fun, and it's only once a year, so celebrate!!  :)  isn't this cute for a cookie swap...

are you looking for a gift for something?  perhaps a dad or grandfather that is sooo hard to buy for?!  think about a personalized gift!


and these are totally going to make my life easier when it comes to gift wrapping... super cute gift tags!

ok, you get my point... shutterfly is the best.  head on over for ALL of your photo prints, gifts, cards, stationary, and more!!  click HERE!!  happy shopping!  :)

As I am sure you know...I am obsessed with Shutterfly as well and have been for quite a few years now! Fortunately I downloaded Shutterfly Studio while it was available and I have it open on my computer EVERY night - I usually spend my "me" time working on photobooks every chance I get (too bad I am still almost 2 years behind!). LOVE all the new cards - I have been browsing them too!
