I have been using an AMAZINGLY FUN site called "SHUTTERFLY" that helps me turn my photos into  memorable books and cards. This Christmas I'm uploading a photo we took of a family gathering this summer and turning it into a Christmas card! The BEST part of this site is that I can make MY Christmas card ONE-OF-A-KIND AND VERY PERSONAL! There are 193 designs from which to choose!  After selecting my design I can then pick from various shapes, colors, and sizes. I can even personalize my own message on the card.( How many times have you found the perfect card only to have the message not quite right?)  With THIS site, I can select ALL the "design goodies" and then write my own personal message! I LOVE being the author of my own cards. PERFECT!

I think I'll use this photo for the card unless I can take another one...really quick!

My family is very casual ( no dress-up photos for THEM ) and getting them together ( with Jon and Elissa coming from China, the other side of the globe ) and then trying to capture a photo with restless grandkids is quite a feat! So making memorable photos is something we try to do as often as we can! We LOVE making memories and then capturing them in photos. Now we can make our  OWN CARDS to go with the photo! We can also pick out ADDRESS LABELS to match the card! How cool is that?

And right now there is a SPECIAL going on at SHUTTERFLY! You can make your card and address labels and get up to 30% off! If you have stopped sending Christmas cards because it is too time consuming, you need to try this! It is quick, simple and a photo says it all! Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words! No need to write that looong Christmas letter, just send a photo! I LOVE RECEIVING THEM and that is why I SEND THEM!
Should I go with this design?

Or should I choose this one?

Hmmm, I can't decide. I love them ALL! I'll show you the FINAL results later. Also, I'm going to write a post later telling you about the amazing PHOTO BOOKS I've made but for now go check out the Christmas photo cards at SHUTTERFLY!


  1. That will make a wonderful Christmas card, and everybody is looking at the camera and smiling at the same time.
    Thanks about the info on Shutterfly. I am computer ignorant but enjoy learning about the things OTHERS are able to do.

  2. Mya,

    You can do this easily as Shutterfly takes you through it step by step. And if you're a blogger and willing to write a post about Shutterfly, they'll give you 50 FREE photo cards! But hurry, it needs to be done SOON!
