Shutterfly…. One very very Proud Momma

First off let me tell you.. Shutterfly is an affiliate program on this site.. purchases made through the links do earn commission.  BUT  I was a customer Looong long before I became an affiliate, as you will be able to tell as you read this post lol.  I only choose affiliate programs I either use, or have an interest in using personally.

Shutterfly is an online photo service that sell everything from mouse pads to throw blankets.  I have to say when I first started shopping with them I was a bit  hesitant about the quality  of product I would receive.. but I was impressed.. as you can tell lol.

As I said I have been a customer for a long time.. over 3 years now.  I can’t even begin to tell you, or show you EVERYTHING I have had from them.. but I’m going to try and show you a good selection.  Our family are used to seeing the latest haul from Shutterfly 🙂 and I often get multiple copies of books and  mouse pads etc to send as gifts to the grandparents, Great Grandparents etc.  Stay tuned for photo mat projects in the future, I have a tonne of prints that still need to be framed !!

Scroll to the end for current deals and coupons:


Flat cards, Tri fold cards,  Single fold cards, note card sets ..I’ve had them all !!!  You have noooo idea how many different card designs I have had.  I love these cards!  Daddy always gets his birthday and fathers day cards from Shutterfly.





Mugs…. lots of mugs.  this one was for My mom… from the little guy on his first Christmas.  She came to visit from Scotland and meet him for the first time.

I have to admit I was not expecting my calendar to be as great as it was, despite having ordered loads of stuff already and everything was always great quality….I dunno, I gues syou just don’t expect much form calendars right LOL…I was very impressed by the quality of the calendars.








OOh  I have lost count of how many mousepads I have ordered. Anyone with a computer has a mousepad with my kid on it.

I got one for myself..and hubby took one look at it, said “oh that’s that for me… thanks honey” and there went my mousepad  *rolleyes














Posters, love the posters…I frame mine like the large prints 🙂


Labels.. great for when you send mail to family ..




…and of course prints… OMG  the prints!!! lol  I have had everything from  the regular 4×6 all the way to the 16×20’s.  This is one of my all time favorites and I have it printed on Lustre /Pearl paper at 16×20.  One of the main reasons I bought my Cricut Explore was to make custom photo mats to mount  my huge collection of Shutterfly prints  🙂cowpoke

But my favorite has to be the books…. My all time favorite I think has to be the “I love you A thru Z” book I made of my lil man when he was still a baby. This one I made with all my photos in sepia Tone.  Usually when I make books I leave them text free, I like to add my own handwritten notations and extras like ticket stubs and such.. a bit like scrapbooking.. but on this one the text was all done on Shutterfly.

It’s a great little book and you can personalize you ABC sentiments like I did.  This was a standard photo book, not a template….the ABC idea was just something I thought would be cute.

They have lots of page layouts available to choose from, or you can customize your own..and a really cool feature is the 2 page spread where you can print  one picture across the two pages.. super cool for those Extra special picture. Be sure that important picture parts aren’t along the seam unless you choose the premium lay flat style books.

..and yes that is my big old pregnant belly on the front lol.  You can’t tell by this picture, but I looked like I ate someone *grin
