Angie’s Gift Guide – Holiday Cards – $100 Shutterfly GIVEAWAY @shutterfly #cardworthy #spon

I have gathered up some holiday gift guide posts for y’all.  Products I will be giving you my opinion on.  A few giveaways to get your holiday shopping kicked off early.  Information that we all need around this time of year.  I am starting with holiday cards cause friends the time is upon us.  It is time to order those cards, address them, and get them in the mail.  I have a confession — I don’t have the pictures made for our cards yet.  So yep…minor panic attack.  So I am browsing the Shutterfly Family Photo Day site from Shutterfly for ideas for our cards.  I actually can’t start taking our pictures until the weekend after Thanksgiving — the joys of having one in college y’all.  So here are the strategies I found on Shutterfly’s site:
  • Be Yourself
  • Keep Clicking
  • Use Photo Props
  • Play Games
  • Bring in the family pet
  • Host a Family Photo Day with others
  • Use Mobile Shots
  • Make it personal
  • Add Humor
  • Plus MANY MORE!

So I am thinking of incorporating some (or all) of these next weekend and getting THE shot for our family holiday cards.  Or if I don’t get THE shot — you know what it will still be fine.  Cause we will still be following the first tip up there — be yourself.  It doesn’t have to be perfect — it just has to be us.

    Love the natural action shots where the family is doing something that shows what they enjoy together…like bike riding, hiking, backpacking…etc. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

    I hate being photographed (hi, weight gain), but I love to include a photo of my pretty little girls on our card each year. I take them to a cool historic spot in our town and snap away until I get a great photo. :)

    Just something simple and natural, usually of just my two kids, outside, hating that they have to pose for another picture!!! Thanks for the chance at such a great giveaway!
