I love to take pictures of my kids! Whether we are on a outing/vacation or just hanging around the house, I love to capture those special moments. Now it is so easy with digital cameras-I just take as many as my kids will let me, and then delete those not so good photos later. I used to get them all developed and then put them in photo boxes or albums, until I came across the website Shutterfly. At Shutterfly, not only can you get pictures developed, but you can create photo books, cards and stationery, prints and posters, as well as photo gifts.
I love Shutterfly! I have gotten my pictures developed and created photo cards, but my favorite two items from Shutterfly is their photo books and their calendars. In the past two years, I have created three photo books from Shutterfly. My first photo book I made was for our first family trip to Disney World. And this past year I have created two photo books to help me capture my family's favorite moments and events throughout the year. There are five sizes to choose from, and so many unique backgrounds to pick from. Each book is twenty pages long, but you can choose to add pages for a small additional fee. You can choose to put between 1 and 16 pictures on each page. And if you are thinking that you just do not have the time to create a photo book, they will create one for you. If you choose Simple Path, all you need to do is choose your pictures and they will arrange them chronologically for you. You can choose from more than 20 styles with preset layouts and backgrounds. In these books, there will be between one and four pictures on each page.
My other favorite item from Shutterfly is their calendars. Each year, we create a personalized calendar with pictures of our family to give as a Christmas gift to my in-laws. You can include between 1 and 9 photos for each month, and you can even add your own personalized dates such as birthdays and anniversaries.
As the holiday season approaches, both the photo books and calendars make great gifts. You may also want to check out their website to help you create Halloween photo cards and Christmas Photo Cards. And to get you started, Shutterfly has offered to give away a set of stationery cards to two lucky readers.
Win it: Two lucky readers will receive a Shutterfly code for 10 5 x 7 flat stationery cards. (Shipping/tax is not included)
