Shutterfly Giveaway ~ Holiday Cards

While going through old photographs I started scanning them in to put them on disc.  Then I thought about my parents and my in-laws, who most likely would not watch a photo disc.  I had heard great things about Shutterfly from other bloggers, so I went off to try it.

Making my book with Shutterfly was easy and fun.  They offer tons of different layout options for you to choose, or else you can just follow one of their pre-made themes.

You just upload your photos, arrange them and Shutterfly does the rest.  About half way through making my first book, I had ideas for a million more.

You'll never guess what the subject of my first book was...

Of course I chose my boys as a Christmas gift for the grandparents!  I'm going to order another one to keep for myself.  This book is clear, crisp and beautiful.

Even the Shutterfly packing is beautiful!  Don't believe me?  See for yourself.

My next project is holiday cards.  If my kids were younger I would love to make some Halloween Invitations.  As it stands I will be ordering my Christmas Photo Cards sometime next week.  I'm even thinking ahead to March for Birthday Invitations!

Now, Shutterfly has offered me the chance to give away sets of 10 free 5x7 stationery cards to 3 different Screaming Mimi readers!

We're going to make this contest simple, here are the rules:

1.  Be a follower of Screaming Mimi
2. Go To Shutterfly and tell me what kind of cards you would like to order.

That's it!  Leave one comment telling me that you follow Screaming Mimi and which cards you like best and on September 25th. I'll pull a name 3 names out of a hat.  Make sure that you're e-mail address is in your profile or in your comment, or you can't win.

Comments will close 9/24 at midnight Eastern time.  Winners will be notified via e-mail and have 48 hours to respond or else a new winner will be chosen.

*Shutterfly is providing free photo cards to me also for this review.

What are you waiting for, the holidays are getting closer!

I LOVE Shutterfly. I made my Mom her wedding album using it, and I'm making yearly albums of my boys with it. The possibilities are awesome! I also made calendars last year of some of my photography for a bunch of family members.

I really love the "Lovely Branches Green" card in Everyday Occasions. Wouldn't it be nice for the Grandparents?
