Although I love the holiday season, it certainly does bring with it a fair amount of stress; from holiday entertaining to finding that perfect gift for everyone on your list. But, thanks to Shutterfly I know I’ll be stress free when it comes to finding that perfect holiday card.

Each year I turn to Shutterfly for quality photo processing I can trust. With each passing year I find it harder and harder to keep up with sharing photos with family and friends, so
I look forward to not only the creation of our holiday card, but all the cards I to receive, adorned with the most beautiful little faces.
Choosing the right holiday card and entrusting a company to bring that card to life for me is super important. This year the Shutterfly 2013 holiday card collection embraces styles and designs for every family and personality.
- Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram
- Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter, Instagram pictures are perfect for this style
- Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments
- Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun
- Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas
- Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights
From the contemporary collection I love the simplicity of the Crafted With Love Christmas Card.
It has enough space for hold some of our most treasured moments from the year and the muted background would make a perfect match for creating an Instagram themed card – Instagram seems to be the only way I capture those daily moments lately.
I typically tend to gravitate toward a more classic choice. Shutterfly has lots of great options this year, but my favorite is definitely the Geometric Border Christmas Card.
Again simply stated, in a timeless black and white pattern, with a monogram and plenty of room for a personal message, if I can capture that perfect family photo this will probably be my top choice for 2013.
Don’t forget your four-legged babies! Every year I promise myself my dogs will find their way onto my Christmas card. But man, if it wasn’t hard enough capturing four kids in a photo, capturing two dogs has proved nearly impossible for me.
The Purrrfect Holiday Christmas Card from the Whimsy collection, is a great way to share your love for the family pet this holiday season,
Confession time. Living in S. Florida we don’t even own jackets heavier than a simple hoodie. Every time I see a summer themed holiday card I’m left thinking “why didn’t we do that?!”
The Merry & Bright Joy in Waves Holiday Card might just be the perfect choice for us. While less traditional than I would typically chose, the setting and saying doesn’t get any more perfect.
If only I could manage a few perfect shots throughout the year. The Merriest Season Christmas Card leaves room for all your best family photos. Some days, I wish I was a photographer because I adore this card, I'm just afraid I'd never take enough good shots to fill it! But, this would make a nice option if I wanted to also include individual shots of my children - and dogs.
