Personalize your Holidays with Shutterfly Holiday Cards + Giveaway!! #MiVidaShutterfly

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMeMedia and Shutterfly. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

It's the holiday season and that means I have to start getting my house in order. One of the things I try to do early is order my holiday cards. I always order them online so I can create them myself. One of the places I always use is Shutterfly. I love that Shutterfly allows me to create, design, order and get my cards quickly! I can also personalize them the way I want.


One of the reasons I order my cards early is because of mi familia in Costa Rica. I have to make sure I send them at least 2 to 3 weeks before I want them delivered because the mail is slow. So I try to get my cards out by the beginning of December. It is very important for me to get my cards to my family in Costa Rica because I rarely see my family there. The holiday cards I send help me send my love and best wishes to my far away familia.


I love photo cards because I can choose one or more photos that let my family into my life. The photo I chose for our card this year is one taken on our trip to Lake Lure this summer. It represents my life here and I am glad I can share it with my family. I love that Shutterfly offers Spanish-language cards. Sending a card in Spanish to my family in Costa Rica is special. I can also make my cards bilingual so I can use them for my husband's family as well.


Shutterfly also offers other items in Spanish as well. You can get personalized cards, photo books and photo gifts. I love buying photo gifts to give to family as well. They are special and unique.


Making cards on Shutterfly is so easy. You can choose from various templates. You can add photos and change the text. I chose a beautiful Papel Picado template and then chose the photo to include. I changed some of the wording and then added a special bonus on the back of the card. I couldn't resist and added our new addition to the back of the card.





UPDATE!! My cards arrived!

I love making cards at Shutterfly. They always look good and are affordable. I always find great deals on the products as well. My next project is a beautiful photo book for my hubby. He had a rough year and I wanted to surprise him with something special so keep an eye out for that.

I love my new card. They are so cute and I was glad that I could include Joss on the back since he is our new addition!!
