Shutterfly iPhone Case Designs and GIVEAWAY!

Last year this time I designed a custom Shutterfly iPhone cover utilizing my stash of vintage ephemera. I was absolutely thrilled by the results and quality of the product, shown HERE, and it has been on my phone since the moment I received it. I’ve been through many iPhone covers over the years, but the Shutterfly case with liner is by far my favorite. After one full year of use it doesn’t have a scratch on it.Cathe_Holden_iPhone_Shutterfly_03 The case has protected my iPhone well, as there’s not one bit of damage to it from the many, many drops it’s experienced. I especially like having a beautiful, custom design on something I carry around all day long. Shutterfly has always been known for quality products you can customize with your own photographs and their selection of designs. I because I love collaging with vintage ephemera I’ve collected over the years, I especially enjoy the ability to add my digital collage designs to something I carry with me every day.Cathe-Holden-3-iPhone-Cases Now you can enjoy a vintage collage design on your iPhone like I do! I have created six different case graphics for the most popular brand and size smart phones- iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The designs are available in my Etsy shop for only $6 each, with instructions in the listings for uploading, personalizing and ordering your own case from The examples below show my and my husband’s names as examples only. The designs purchased will have blank fields for adding your own custom text.Cathe-Holden-iPhone-Designs-6There are three feminine designs, and three that are a bit more masculine with hunting and farm themes that make awesome gifts for the men in your life. Five of the designs allow for adding your own custom text once purchased and uploaded to Here is one where the name (I used my husband’s in the example below) blends nicely into the design (right), or can be ordered without personalizing as well (left).Cathe-Holden-iPhone-DecoyXXThe printing of the designs wrap around to the sides of the case, and the matte finish is soft and beautiful and shows off the design in incredible detail. Here is the lovely new wardrobe for my iPhone 6s:Cathe-Holden-iPhone-Case-Poppies Cathe-Holden-iPhone-Case-Inspected Cathe-Holden-iPhone-Case-BirdsAs you can see, the personalizing option can be used for name, monogram, even website address.

    I love the Farmer’s Pocket Ledger- it’s so cute! I had a chance to visit Petaluma this summer and I could see why you seem to have a penchant for farms and beautiful old buildings in town. What a beautiful area and charming old buildings with great stores! We have a friend with whom we were visiting and he took us there to visit a thrift store, the Seed Bank and all the other great places. I was wishing I’d run into you so I could meet you and tell you how much I appreciate your design eye!

    P.S. I live in farm country in Ohio, but Petaluma looked kind of like home!
