Making a List, and Checking it Twice {By the way there's a Giveaway!}

Did you know there is only 9 more weekends until Christmas?? Seriously?!! And that means, it is time to start planning out those Christmas Cards, photo books and photo gifts. I have already been spending time getting all my photos uploaded from this last year (my computer is soooo slow at this!). Well Shutterfly has been getting ready too, and they have already released their new 2013 Holiday Card Collection & added new items to their photo gifts. 

What are a few of my favs, you ask? 

I am a sucker for chevron this year, so this Chevron Blocks card is perfect! 

This "Bright and Merry Bubbles" card just makes me happy. Its simple but fun. And I am loving the colorfulness! 

The blogger in me absolutely loves this "year in photos" card, because you get to update everyone on your actual life for the past year. This is top on my list right now ;-)
How cool is this Dry Erase decal? My dishwasher is non-magnetic and I think one of these on there for notes etc would be soooo cute! 

I am thinking I am going to start a tradition of getting our christmas card on one of these christmas cube ornaments each year. What a great way to turn your tree into memories right? 

Photo gifts are probably my favorite kind of gifts. I love capturing memories through photos, and there are all kinds of cute things to do with them now! Shutterfly has lots of different cards and gifts to choose from. They have new card design styles for 2013 - 5x7 folded tri fold & back of card designs
o   Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram
o   Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter, Instagram pictures are perfect for this style
o   Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments
o   Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun
o   Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas
o   Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights
