Trends I’m Loving- Treat by Shutterfly

Hey Cats!

Last Tuesday of summer! Yikes. Obviously I’ll spend it in the best way, watching Pretty Little Liars and eating Ben & Jerry’s. Thanks to my roommates, I have a new favorite flavor- Milk & Cookies- it’s delicious! I’m obviously making the most of my senior year of college by eating ice cream and watching bad TV. Not sorry.

I digress.

I was recently introduced to Shutterfly, a new website with personalized gifts, cards, and more, and I fell in love with the site and everything it has to offer! I love sending little treats to my friend, especially with a personal touch.

Instead of a birthday card or something a bit more predictable, I decided to send a “welcome home” card to my best friend Kinsey. We’ve been best friends since our freshman year of high school, and we go to school across the state from each other. We usually are able to spend the summer together, but this year I stayed in College Station, and Kinsey went to Europe, stayed in Lubbock, and then traveled around Texas as a camp counselor. So needless to say, we weren’t able to see each other very much, and it was so sad- she’s like my sister! But I was able to write her letters while she was at camp, and she had her phone on the weekends, so we were sort of able to keep each other updated on life.

I had so much fun making this card for Kinsey- I loved picking out my favorite pictures, and even though picking out the layout was hard (so many choices!), I finally found the perfect one!

I love this quote because it sums up our friendship- we’re far apart, but we’re always friends! Also yes, that photo is from our high school cheer days- but it’s one of my favorites!

I chose my favorite pictures of us for the inside of the card-you can add captions, but I chose not to. Also, these little squares are the perfect size for Instagram photos, which we have one million of.

It’s so easy to create special, personalized gifts and cards for your friends and family with >treat, so the next time you want to give something more than the generic grocery store card, head over to treat and make something just for them! It’s always in style to show your friends and family how much you love them!

I was actually able to see Kinsey this past weekend- we were both in Tyler for the last time before school started- and was able to give her the card in person at lunch. She loved it, and we had a great time eating barbecue and macaroons and catching up on what had happened in our lives this summer.
