Family Holiday Card Ideas, 2014 #ShutterflyHoliday

This post brought to you by Shutterfly.// With the holidays here again (crazy how that happens, huh?), I'm doing everything I can to keep the chaos at a minimum so that my family can enjoy this season. Planning ahead is crucial, so I did some major browsing in Shutterfly's line of Perfectly Personal™ Holiday Cards. In one stop, I created and ordered a stylish set of Christmas cards, labels, stamps, stickers, and party invites!

This year's line of holiday cards offers more than 400 different designs to choose from. While that might seem a bit overwhelming, you can narrow your search for the perfect Christmas card by choosing from flat, folded, 3/4 fold, and tri-fold layouts. Shutterfly also has 4 card sizes and various options for trim and paper type, including scalloped edges, brackets, signature cardstock, and pearl shimmer cardstock.

I usually go with traditional designs, but after much debate, I decided to change things up this year and go with something more trendy. Chalkboards and chalk art are popular, so I went with the Very Merry Frames style and I'm so glad I did.

Vibrant colors, thick and sturdy paper, beautiful design. I'll be framing this card to display.

With the flat stationary cards, I love love loooove that you can play with the designs and layouts to personalize them a bit more. You can add extra photos, choose from various trim styles, edit your sentiments, vary your colors, and choose from signature cardstock or pearl shimmer cardstock. I was even able to create a longer, custom Christmas greeting for the back of our cards.

Did you know that you can also order an entire stationary suite through Shutterfly?

Not only did I order an adorable set of Christmas cards, but I also found coordinating address labels, stickers, holiday party invitations, and even personalized postage!

Don't feel like you need to hire a photographer and spend an arm and a leg on seasonal portraits. I loaded up my three little guys one afternoon and snapped some shots at a local historic home. They were dressed in their Christmas outfits, but you could easily go casual with cute boots, jeans, sweaters, and scarves!

Now that the photos are taken, the cards ordered and delivered, I feel a bit of that holiday stress melt right off of my shoulders. I can't wait to spend a chilly December evening sipping hot chocolate, watching a favorite Christmas movie, and preparing our cards to send out.
