A little something for you

This post was part of a sponsored opportunity. I received free product or payment in return for original content or a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Last week I wrote about how I had fallen into the photo book rabbit hole while making them for the kids as Christmas gifts. I’m still falling. I finished a third book for Cady last night and I’ve started a second one for James.

I just really love them. And I think they make perfect gifts for everyone on your list, from kids to grandparents to yourself. Shutterfly just makes it so easy and fun to make.

They have several different sizes and binding options to choose from and over 150 different styles that make it easy to customize your book to your needs, like baby, wedding, travel, holidays, sports, accomplishments… There is even a style called Pictogram that is perfect for all of those Instagram photos hanging out on your phone.

Two of the books I ordered came in yesterday and I was really impressed with the quality. They have improved the paper since the last time I purchased one. It is nice and thick. The colors are all vivid, and everything turned out exactly like I expected. My only advice, really, really proofread. They will print exactly what you ask them to. So if you write you when you meant your… Yeah. Hopefully Cady will overlook it.

Have I convinced you yet that you really, really need to make one of these for yourself? Well how about I give you a code for a free 8×8 hardcover photo book for yourself or someone on your list? Because I’m giving away TWO codes! Woohoo! Join me in the rabbit hole. It’s fun down here.

    I’ve always wanted to make scrapbooks for my children, but who has time for that?! lol This is a great idea, and easily shared with others!!

    The video reminds me of my mom with her grandsons. I plan to make memory books for each of the boys. I would love to make them through Shutterfly and am glad to hear you like the quality. Winning a free one would be extra nice!

    Love the books from Shutterfly. I have made a couple in the past, they are awesome. It is so fun to share them with family & friends. My mom always says, I wish we could have done these for you guys when you were little.

    The video made me cry because my kids are not that close (geographically) with their grandparents. We still get to see them quite a bit but being in the same city would be nice sometimes…

    I wish I had time to make a TON of photo books!!

    Well, I am sad because I miss my mom and dad and Grandmom. They all went to heaven within 6 months of each other like the 3 musketeers. But it would be nice to make a book of my top fave pics of them.
    Thank you so much for the contest!

    This video reminds me of special times sitting on the couch going through photo books. My daughter loves to do this with her grandparents. I need to make a new one for them. Thanks for hosting this!

    I don’t comment, however after reading through
    a few of the responses on thiks page Photo Book. I actually do
    have some questions for you if you do not mind.

    Is it simply me or does it look like some of the comments appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sopcial sites,
    I would like to keep up with you. Would you list of every one of your
    shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
