Everyone loves them, but sometimes photo books can take HOURS to design. Here’s the secret to make a Shutterfly photo book in MINUTES!
Don’t you just love photo books? We have one that I made with our photos from our first Disney World trip and the girls still look at it regularly. But I rarely have time to print photos let alone design an entire book. I love them, really I do, but once I start trying to make one I look up at the clock and realize it’s been 2 hours and I’ve only done 3 pages.
Tell me I’m not alone. Now, I’ll tell you that I have a HUGE secret on how to…
Make a Shutterfly photo book in just minutes
The best way to make a photo book is with Shutterfly’s new photo book service, Make My Book. It is utterly amazing, especially for us Moms who love photo books, but just don’t love the time it takes to design them. I admit, the only reason it takes me time to make them is because I’m a perfectionist and I’m constantly analyzing which photo is better and which page backgrounds should go with others, but guess what… my secret will save you from that over analyzing!
When you use the service you only have a few tasks – you leave the rest up to the glorious Shutterfly designers. But let’s get back to your tasks. The first step to make a Shutterfly photo book is to pick a theme! I chose to make a Harry Potter photo book all about our recent trip to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. When you pick up and fly to Orlando for 3 days to celebrate your Wizard Loving Girls, the experience deserves to make a photo book!
Next, you upload your photos. While there are different choices about how many photos to use – I chose to use as many as possible with no duplicates. Do you know what that means? I didn’t have to look through the 300 photos that I had of our trip – the company’s designers did that for me and picked out only the best ones for my book! I’m telling you, this is the only way to make a photobook on Shutterfly!
I got the email just a few days after I submitted all my photos for our book that it was ready to review. I was ecstatic to see the beautiful book that was designed all for me! While I chose to have some embellishments included, I did go in and add a few things to the book… you know, perfectionist here. I didn’t have to change anything, but I did add a few notes for reminders of our trip, but this step is totally optional.
Using this service to make a photo book on Shutterfly will only cost you an additional $9.99 [and it’s worth every single penny]. It was an absolute delight to create make this photobook – no hours of designing on my part, no sifting through hundreds of pictures… just going straight to enjoying the memories together! It’s nice to be think that you can actually make a memory keepsake without worrying about sitting at your computer for HOURS pouring over pictures and designs.
When you’re ready to make a Shutterfly photo book and enjoy the creation of the book as much as you enjoy looking at them, head over to Shutterfly and choose their new Make My Book service! And you’ll always find me here, so you can thank me later… because I know you’ll love this life-changing service as much as I do!
