Planning for an Early Christmas Here

I'm feeling a little short on time this year with holiday preparations. We scheduled our vacation for the beginning of December, so I really need to have everything mostly finished and ready before we leave, including cards in the mail. Instead of handcrafting my cards this year, I've decided to use holiday photo cards from Shutterfly. I've always been impressed w/ the quality of their prints and my share site through Shutterfly, so I plan to use their holiday photo cards.

I'm still deciding between a flat or folded card, but here are a few of my favorites (along with my daughter's favorites):

This card is her favorite (I'm sure due to the pink), and I love how colorful and non-traditional it is for holiday cards. I think it's definitely fitting for a family with a preschool daughter.

This is my personal favorite. I love the classic look of the holly branch w/ the modern look of the black and the text box at the bottom. Pretty sure, I'll go with this one for at least part of them. It's really hard to choose, but I know that any design I pick will go beautifully with our family photos that we had taken in October.

If you're looking for holiday cards for your family, Shutterfly is currently running a promotion for 20% off all holiday cards. Go here to check them out for yourself:

I hope I've saved you some time this holiday season! Don't forget that they also have matching address labels, gift tags, and even Christmas birth announcements!

I've been in quite a few Artfire collections lately since updating to a pro account. The latest two feature my Pumpkin placemats and my Origami tree card for Christmas. All details are on my facebook fan page since I'm not able to copy and paste links here. Thanks!
