I’ve been using Shutterfly pretty much since I got my very first digital camera way back years ago.  In the beginning, I used them to make prints of my favorite digital photos. Soon after, I discovered the fun in creating photo gifts. Now, I use them to create gifts, cards and more every year around the holidays. One of my favorite things to do to get in the holiday spirit is browse through their selection of great holiday cards to decide which one I’ll make each year! Take a look at a few of my favorite holiday cards for 2013:

It’s quite the eclectic collection of favorites, right? I honestly can’t decide which theme I want to go with this year. Last year, I did a blackboard type theme and it came out really cute. I love the dog one though! I think I’ll get that along with one that features a photo of my son on it. So hard to decide!

About Shutterfly’s New 2013 Holiday Cards

This year’s new card design styles feature  5×7 folded tri fold & back of card designs along with the more traditional offerings that you’re used to. Other styles include:

  •  A mixture of classic elements like traditional colors, iconic illustrations, snowflake designs and more.
  • Contemporary trendy designs featuring different textures, water colors, shine and glitter. Use your Instagram pictures for these styles!
  • Whimsical fun and humor meets nostalgia
  • Merry and Bright cards full of color and fun
  • Religious cards
  • Basic photo pictures featuring family name highlights.

I’ve also been browsing the photo gift section to get some ideas. I usually get a few mugs every year, but I’m thinking of switching it up a bit this year. I’m thinking instead of a mug this year, how about a reusable water bottle!


I really love this dry erase decal! I would personalize it to turn it into a blogging calender! DRYERASE-197053-541-MERCHLARGE_FRONT-v137574230000043380

Isn’t this ornament gorgeous? I’m not sure who will get this for a gift, but someone definitely is!
