It's officially Christmas Season... It's Shutterfly time!

Every year I tell myself I'm going to get our CHRISTMAS cards out BEFORE Christmas and EVERY year I send a HOLIDAY card because I can't get my act together until AFTER Christmas. It's an endearing quality, no?

I suspect this year will be no different as it's Dec. 1st next week... I haven't yet logged into Shutterfly to peruse the choices for cards or to peruse my photos to see if we got anything 'card worthy' (and now also print worthy since all I do is shoot w/ my iPhone) throughout the year.

I've used shutterfly to make photo books in the past too. A nice way to chronicle the kids speedy growth. I'm also considering making a calendar this year... shh don't tell the grandparents!... It's so easy to upload your photos and then use them in the various options be it holiday cards, invites, calendars or photo books.

And sweet bonus.. Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly So if you are a blogger.. check it out. Save some coin so you can buy your sweet (uh, or yourself) something nice this holiday!!!

They have a really nice selection of designs to please all types. Go check it out!


  1. Love all my goodies lately from Shutterfly! You can do it - plenty of time left! ;)

  2. Laura,
    We started making calendars for all of the grandparents a few years ago (well, probably about 4 years ago). We didn't know what we had started. Now they are requested for part of their Christmas presents. It is easy to do... just takes a little time. And we are trying to do our Christmas cards too. Hopefully we'll do that soon also. Can't wait to see your kiddos in your cards : ) I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

  3. If you can get your Christmas cards out before Christmas, please drop me a line and let me know how on Earth you get it done!

    Hope the training is going well homeslice!

  4. :) Already ordered my free cards! I'm **hoping** to get them out by the middle of December! :)

  5. I may have to use this deal. Thanks for posting the link!

  6. I made calendars last year - they were a big hit. I did it through my mac though, and it was so easy! Also all the photo books i make are through mac and the autoflow makes it so easy, and the pics are already on my computer!

  7. I love Shutterfly! I used to be a huge scrapbooker but then I had more kids than hands and that was one of the first things to go. Thankfully I can still upload all my photos and stick them in a Shutterfly photobook! Thanks for the tip on the freebie!

  8. Charlotte .. gotta share the love. :) Love your site by the way! :)
