My Favorite Holiday Cards

Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly… sign up:

Hello All!

For the last couple of years, I send out very few Christmas cards. But it's only because I spend several hours making and personalizing them for my parents and grandparents, (ie emma's grandparents and great-grandparents.)

I make them out of the foam sticker kits and I have such a BLAST making them! Partly because the only mess that’s made is the sticker backs. And Emma can make some at the same time.

I bought a big bucket of winter foam stickers that a lot of different shapes like penguins, snowmen - which you can actually dress up with scarves and hats and cute! The kit also comes with five different colors of 5x7 sized foam backgrounds - red, blue, black, yellow and white. It also included the same five colors of letters. There was even a sheet of white dots to look like snowflakes!

Each set of grandparents and great-grandparents got their own personalized card with an updated family picture. And if they were especially lucky and I felt adventurous, there was also a family newsletter included.

This year, since I’ve depleted my foam sticker supply, I’m hoping to use Shutterfly to not only send Christmas/Holiday cards for the family, but to also show off our new addition to the family that should be making his arrival soon! 

Here are a few of my favorite things I found while browsing the site:
-- Christmas cards
-- Canvas art
-- Christmas photo cards to
