I love getting Christmas cards from friends and family (so put me on your list!). One of my favorite things when we got married was sending out our first card together last year! I used our wedding pictures last year, but I’m just planning to use a casual photo of us and our little furry friend this year.
The photo cards are my favorite, but I have two rules-it must be fun, a little funky and most importantly, affordable! I have found some great cards online, but they weren’t very budget-friendly (because let’s face it, D.C. is expensive). Shutterfly offers a variety to choose from and the best part is the prices! I have our card picked out, but you will have to wait until our lovely faces arrive in your mailbox to see it.
Here is the runner up:
Here are some of my other favorites:
I’ve also used Shutterfly to make photo books and I love them. I used them to make our guest book for the wedding, a scrapbook of our honeymoon and a book of all the trips we have taken. I think I’m going to start using the year in review book and make a book for each year. I used to make traditional scrapbooks, but it’s hard to have the time and space now (especially in an apartment) so this is a great alternative.
