I've always been a holiday traditionalist in the fact that I always do Christmas cards, I also usually have them done early enough that I can send them out a day or two after Thanksgiving. But this year, life was just a little too hectic for that, plus with our baby being born on December 1st, it didn't make sense to send cards out and have them be already outdated by the time they arrived at their destination. So this year I went with a modern approach to our holiday cards and chose to do New Year cards instead of Christmas cards, and I truly love how they turned out. So much in fact tat I may just keep on doing New Year's cards from here on out!

We chose Shutterfly and Tiny Prints again this year like we usually do for our cards and I chose this simple minimalist design for our cards. I just love the simple design and fresh feel to it, plus I love that I could add an extra photo on back as well as write a little something to make it more personable. I chose two of my favorite photos from our recent family/newborn photo session and them chose the card shape I wanted, the paper I wanted (I love the pearl shimmer paper), chose the font along with sizes and colors and added our names, wrote a little on the back and they were done!

One of the biggest reasons we love Shutterfly and Tiny Prints for all of our cards, is because not only do they have so many hundreds of beautiful card designs to choose from and even more ways to personalize them with fonts, colors, metallic foils and glitters, card shapes and more, but it is SO easy to create your cards! It literally takes only minutes to from start to finish to create your cards! Just upload your photo (or photos) of choice, choose your names and personalize them, review the draft and add to cart. It truly is that easy to create beautiful and unique photo cards with Shutterfly and Tiny Prints. The ease and speed of card creation on their website came in so handy this year since I don't seem to have much time for much but feedings and diaper changes these days as a busy mom of two.

I also grabbed these sweet thank you cards since a few people had gifted us items for baby Bodhi, and I thought these were perfect for that! I personalized them a little bit and voila, they're stunning, not to mention that I love the simplicity and color theme. They're just perfect and I can't wait to send them out along with our holiday cards that I talked about above.

Another reason we love Shutterfly is because they also offer personalized postage stamps! How fun is that? I thought this design that says "love and thanks" was adorable and of course I couldn't help but add one of my favorite photos of Bella and Bodhi snuggling together as the background!

If you didn't get a chance to make Christmas cards this year, it's totally not too late to send New Year cards! Create them over at Shutterfly!
