My Shutterfly Experience

When I need to create a photo project, whether it be a photo card, greeting card, or photo book I always seem to turn to Shutterfly.com. Before them, I had no experience with ordering photo projects. I have been a customer of theirs a little over a year, when I joined and created my first project - my daughter's birth announcements. After receiving them in the mail, I was hooked and ordered a photo book of my daughter's birth. That too was better than I'd expected . It seems like over the course of the year, I received offers for items that were too good to turn down and to date I have placed nine orders and am planning on making my tenth before the end of this month. So if you think about it, I make an order almost every month and as a stay-at-home parent, that says a lot.
The Mother's Day card I made for my mother
I love being able to purchase quality keepsakes and gifts without hurting my family's income and Shutterfly continues to keep the savings and the quality coming. I have tried other companies during their deals, and none match the quality of Shutterfly. Many family members have received something I created from Shutterfly and are amazed at them.

I have the ideas (and the photos, of course) and Shutterfly helps me make them into beautiful projects. It's easy to upload photos and create projects, but the best way to show you is by trying it out yourself.

Here are a few project ideas to get you started:
Photo Christmas Cards
Party Invitations
Birth Announcements

Have fun and stay tuned for another special post next week about Shutterfly!

Freebie Friday for August 27th

Hello everyone! This has been an exciting week for me. Hubby purchased me my own domain at youngwifeandmom.com! I have it worked out so you can enter either address (blogspot.com) or the (.com) and still end up on this blog, so if you've bookmarked my site or use my blog button it won't affect you. If you're like me and end up typing in the address every time hoping the internet history will kick in, I think you'll appreciate the change lol! 

I also purchased some business supplies and have begun some monetization efforts to stream some income to my family. I will post more about those next week. I promise everything I add to the blog will be with companies I have had good experiences with, most of which will be family and savings oriented.

I'm also going to be expanding the family section of this blog to include things like low cost meals, tips, and other things that we can come up with. If you have any ideas of something that you would like to see, please feel free to leave me a comment or email me using the "contact me" section. I really appreciate it.

I did one for my sister-in-law's wedding using pictures from my mother-in-law's photo album. It'll make a great surprise!
  •  ArtsCow is giving away Personalized Memo Pads to the first 2,000 daily. This is similar to their free mousepad offer last month and is a great way to test out their products.

Create an 8x10 photo collage for free (no shipping costs!) today by 11:59pm using coupon code "GRANDSHIP." This code also provides free shipping on all other purchases today. I took advantage of the 20 free credits I had in my account and added them to the collage order (since any other day I would have to pay a shipping charge.) The collage can hold up to 20 photos and can be customized in color, title fonts, etc. I used mine to display some of my daughter's first birthday pics!

  1. Go here and sign in
  2. Create your collage
  3. Add any other items (optional)
  4. Checkout
  5. On address page you will see a box to enter the coupon code
