It has officially been my number one favorite Christmas movie ever since it came out. Before then, it was National Lampoon's Christmas vacation, now a close second :)
But since it's quite difficult to spread Christmas cheer by singing to friends and family who live out of state (I suppose you could do it over the phone, but come on, that's just not the same :) ), the next best thing is sending your near and dear some fun Christmas cards. This year I'm going to use Shutterfly.com to make my cards (did you know they'll mail them straight to your recipients, too?!), and I can't wait to play around with my photos, find the best ones and use them to create my card.
I'd like to incorporate these in my card this year. The photo of my husband and me is from our 1 year anniversary, and the glitter reindeer is an ornament on my silver and gold glitter music tree:
There are so many different options for layouts and themes that Shutterfly offers in every color of the rainbow. All their holiday card and stationary options are found here, and it's easy to get started. The hard part is deciding on your favorite one! haha! I'm leaning towards a red theme right now since the photos I'm considering using have a lot of green in them. Here are the styles I'm diggin:
It's so tough to decide!!!! I don't know which one to pick - any ideas out there? What are your opinions for my pictures/color scheme/layout? Also, anyone else out there who's used or planning on using Shutterfly for their Christmas cards or other projects? They do SSOOOOO much more than just cards. They do wall calendars, birthday invites, and I've used them at least a half a dozen times already for prints, photobooks (our wedding and honeymoon albums and wedding album gifts for family), and online photo uploading which I then also used to create a site for sharing our wedding & honeymoon photos and videos with friends and family
It's an amazing Web site with speedy shipping and I've been satisfied with every single one of their products 100% of the time. I can't say enough good things about this company. Plus for all you bloggers out there, Shutterfly's giving bloggers 50 free holiday cards. Check it out here.
Okay, so now it's time to buckle down and pick a card - with your help it'll be a breeze. Comment please! *hey, i'm poet too! :)
