My Shutterfly Experience & 1st Giveaway!!

  I was chosen to be 1 of 100 bloggers who will be writing about their thoughts & personal experiences with Shutterfly.

 I personally have not used Shutterfly yet, but it really seems like it is a fabulous way to get creative with your photos! They offer a variety of projects that are sure to please! One of the creative and fun things you can do with Shutterfly is create your very own personalized Birthday Cards . I've looked through all the different designs, and I am impressed! Here is a design I might use for my son's 2nd birthday this year called: Party Animals Birthday Invitation

  They have lots of designs to choose from, and YOU can personalize the cards to your specific colour scheme and change the wording and pictures...The amazing part?? That YOU get to make it look how you want it! All without spending time writing out 30 invites out by hand, perhaps getting ink smudges all over your hands and cards like I did for my son's 8th birthday this past year ;) I think I will be using Shutterfly this year for invites instead of putting myself through that torture ever again. :)
  Another great option you can create yourself is Baby Announcements. There are so many beautiful designs that you can choose and personalize to your liking. These custom announcements are so much more attractive then a couple of black sentences in a newspaper, and you order as many as you need so you can give them out to family and friends. One of my favourite designs is this one: Triple Play Blue Baby Announcement

  After all the invites and parties, it's time to send out Thank You Cards. Pick a design, edit the design how you like it best, then order. Done. I just love this wedding thank you card design:     

  Another great thing Shutterfly offers for you is the option to either have the cards sent back to you, or you can choose to get them sent directly to the recipients at a small additional charge. Your personalized cards would be sent out from Shutterfly, and you didn't even have to leave your house or get outta your pj's to do any of it!! How awesome is that?! :)

 Just a note(Disclaimer): Although I will be receiving free product for my time, my review has not been influenced by the sponsor in any way, this review is 100% my honest opinions and thoughts :)

- My 1st Giveaway :) - 20 Free Personalized Stationary Cards- open to Canadians only -
