"Personalized card for a special birthday"
"Modified so I could use it for a Confirmation card!"
"I used the blurred edge design to create synergy with clouds on a blue-sky day. Fall colors on Crabapple trees were also showing off. Blurred edge added to the overall look of the cards. Heavy paper stock makes them suitable for framing. I'm not kidding!"
"The 5x7 folded cards which I ordered most recently turned out great! The quality of the paper is very nice, and the envelopes are also very nice. I love them and plan to order more very soon."
"I have been creating personalized Shutterfly cards for years, especially around the holidays choosing a place we have visited the past year as the theme and enclosing a newsletter with the card. I always get raves about the result. The cardstock used is of high quality and you can edit your photos and I have never been disappointed. Well worth the price."
Sacramental milestones are rare and important in the church; that’s why parents work so hard to commemorate them as they come and go. When you have a young one who is about to experience a first communion, your invitations should reflect everything that went into their journey. That means they should feature you, your family, and the people who have supported your child throughout the Catechism, helping to get them ready to join your spiritual community. When you use DIY first communion invitations that let you upload your design, you had the opportunity to create a truly unique invitation that your friends and family will remember.
Using the Layout Creator and Editor
Like the rest of the customizable products on Shutterfly, you can easily shape your customizable invitations in the editor interface. Just upload your images in common file formats, add the copy in the right spots, and then arrange them into a template that has just the right balance of images and text. The result is simple and easy, and it lets you set up your custom invites in just a few minutes.
First Communion Presents for the Big Day
Invites are hardly the only preparation to take for the big day. There’s also food to prepare, clothes to pick, and presents to choose.
