SUNDAY GIVEAWAY: Shutterfly Simple Path Photo Book

There is nothing like seeing your beloved photos in a bound photo book. Taking the time, however, to sit down and create it, is usually an undertaking that requires committing the time and creative energy to the endeavor.



Shutterfly has created the perfect option for the busy mom to create a beautiful photo book with Simple Path. It is, well, quite simple. I recently made my own Simple Path book and the entire project took my about 35 minutes.


Here's how it works - You choose the size of the book you want to create (5x7, 7x9, 8x8, 8x11, or 12x12), you choose the photos you want in the book, and then Shutterfly arranges the photos for you and you can print as is, or easily make changes prior to printing. There are 20 different styles to choose from, and you can edit the photos or add captions. The templates allow you to showcase 1-4 photos per page, and you can put up to 400 photos in one book. I guarantee when you are done creating the book you will say: "Really? It's done already?"



This is THE best gift option for the grandmother or grandfather who has everything. It is the ultimate brag book, and the price point makes it affordable to print these books regularly. Perhaps you want to print a book each year to chronicle your child's school year, or a holiday that means a lot to your family.

Here are some photos of the photo book that I made (faster than you can say, "pass the chocolate, please") using Simple Path ...

Shutterfly is going to give one Mama Manifesto reader the opportunity to make their own Simple Path book photo book.

  4. Hmmm... it would be a hard decision between giving this to my mom or my mother-in-law as a wonderful gift because either of them would really love it. I like the idea of only having to add in the pictures and having the layout all done for me, what a time-saver!

  8. Oh definitely for us. We are in the adoption process with twins from foster care. We have so many photos of our transition and first months here. I'd love to put them in an album to show them their journey.

  10. I would keep this for myself. I have bought albums over the years and have had to re-gift them since I am LAME at printing photos for them! This would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm always making scrapbooks for others, so selfishly I would want to keep this one for me! (for once =)) Plus, I wouldn't have to get out ALL my scrapbooking stuff and try and find the time? Priceless! My son is 10, and I haven't even finished his 1 year album!

  16. I'd make it for one of my kids (which until they are older I could consider it mine right?) It sounds like this type of book would be perfect for my Alphabitty Moments meme. ...a word and photo for each letter of the alphabet that highlights an ordinary childhood moment/memory/memento. Some day we'll look back and realize the little things were actually the BIG things....
