Shutterfly's 50 FREE Holiday Card Promotion

I've been trying to think of what I want to do for a birth announcement once our little one comes. Patrick's parents do a Christmas letter every year that they send out to friends and family. I think this is a neat tradition and a kind way to let those you love in on what's been happening throughout the year. And if you have a new born... show off thier cuteness!

Well I found my solution! Shutterfly!

They are running a promotion for bloggers who blog about their products to get 50 free cards. Since I have a huge family, we'll probably have to buy additional cards... but the 50 free will sure be nice! I'll do a Christmas birth announcement :)

I've been looking through their website and am amazes at all they have to offer.
When Patrick and I got married we decided to just get our wedding pictures put on a CD and then we'd either print them ourselves or make a book online. I love that book. Patrick put it together and it honestly didn't take him too long. Now we have a good coffee book that showcases our big day. Shutterfly offers these photo books starting as low as $10.39. WHAT! $10.39 is so inexpensive!! Check them out HERE.
With the holiday's coming up these make great gifts. I have known of people who make the smaller size and give them to grandmothers as their "brag" books. You could also do a personalized calendar with tons of your favorite pictures. Interested in making a calendar??? Look no further than HERE.

What I'm really interested in though are these cute Christmas cards. It's exciting to think I will be putting pictures of our sweet girl on there in just a few short weeks.

Here are a few I like from the TONS they offer:

    I have been following your blog for some time and enjoy it a lot. I encourage you to follow your thoughts of creating a Christmas Newsletter and you will enjoy this a lot. My Mother did this in 1945 and I have copies of many of them.

    I was going to attach the 1945 newletter, but it exceeds the allowable number of characters.

    I would be glad to send it to you and think you might enjoy some of the humor.

    I am sure that the Good Lord will provide you with a very enjoyable parenthood.

  2. Thank you for the heads up about the shutterfly offer! My wife and I used shutterfly to make a photo book when we traveled to Ireland. We'll have to check out their Christmas offer.
