With the holidays comes a certain amount of unavoidable hustle and bustle. Shopping, wrapping, baking, cooking, planning get togethers… it’s a LOT! HP wants to bring families together this holiday season, so they’ve created the #HPFamilyTime program to do just that! Over the next several weeks I’m going to be bringing you ideas and ways that HP and their partners can help you spread holiday cheer, all while spending time with your family. As a proud HP brand ambassador, I was sent an HP Holiday Bundle, including an ENVY17 Leap Motion Special Edition Notebook, an HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One Printer, HP ink products, and a Snapfish gift card to facilitate these posts.
When I think of the holidays, I think of holiday cards! I love sending and receiving yearly greetings and wait with anticipation for them to start arriving each December. I especially love personalized cards displaying family photos. It’s so wonderful to see how our friends and families change each year and how our children grow. Creating our family cards is always one of the things I enjoy most.
This year I had the pleasure of creating my holiday card using the
HP ENVY 17 Leap Motion Special Edition Notebook:
This notebook features a super sleek design with a brushed aluminum finish and a bright, vivid 17.3-inch diagonal optional Full HD Display. Using the Windows 8 operating system, you can enjoy revolutionary navigation using natural, in-air hand movements, thanks to integrated Leap Motion™ technology. It’s truly revolutionary. The HP ENVY Leap Motion SE Notebook offers maximum responsiveness due to its 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4702MQ Processor. The stunning display is ideal for gaming, watching movies, videos, and even just surfing the web. With Beats Audio™, quad speakers, and a subwoofer, the HP ENVY Leap Motion SE Notebook is designed for the best sounding, richest audio available on a PC.Stunning display; you’ll be able to hear music as the artists intended you to. These are just a few of the features that make this notebook amazing.
Whenever I’ve needed high-quality prints or photo gifts in the past, I’ve relied on Snapfish. This website, owned by HP, helps you imagine it, create it, and share it. Whether you’re looking to create personal family photo calendars, large canvas prints, photo books, cards, or a place to share your photos with friends and family, Snapfish is the website for you (and signing up is FREE!). I decided to take advantage of the Cyber Monday sales on Snapfish to create and purchase our Christmas cards this year (using a gift card sent by HP).
Creating the perfect holiday card is so easy at Snapfish! They have hundreds of options and layouts for you to chose from and I found one that perfectly fits our style. You can upload your photos in a flash and simply plug them into their templates. You can embellish as much as you wish with extra wording and change fonts and colors. Don’t you think that my little guy will be bringing lots of cheer this holiday season?!

Thanks to my new HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One Printer, creating adorable holiday address labels will be a cinch. I’ll have more on this in an upcoming post.
