Shutterfly Photo Books – For Free!

Every year since Frog Prince and I have gotten married, we’ve made “year-in-review” photo books to highlight and capture our year together.  Over the past week I’ve been putting the finishing touches on our 4th year together book!!  I am so excited to share it with Frog Prince next Thursday for our anniversary. 

DSCN4314-1

Making this book, I had a chance to try out Shutterfly’s new custom path books!  I’ve made many photo books with Shutterfly before, and while I’ve always loved how our books turn out, some of the layout pages were challenging to work with because I wanted to tweak this or that.

With the new custom path books, I could do all the tweaking I wanted.  While this is certainly more time consuming, the things you can do to make the photo book what you want are incredible.  You can resize photos, add text boxes where ever you wish, and they have fun new “stickers” that allow you to add a little something extra to your photo book. 

We’ve used Shutterfly products time and time again – from Christmas cards to invitations and have always been happy with the final product.  In fact, we even made a photo book as our guest book for our wedding and folks could sign it “yearbook style”.  I also love that they are constantly responding to consumer feedback and trying to improve their products. 

The folks at Shutterfly have contacted me about giving 10 of you free 8x8 inch, 20-page hardcover photo books!  I absolutely love this size book – it’s perfect for a gift, for a shelf or a coffee table.  Now you have the chance to try out their new custom path photo book and make your own book of memories.
