My Shutterfly Experience & Giveaway

     I have been a Shutterfly customer for a few years now.  When I first started using them, I was solely there to make prints from my digital camera, because they are quality, affordable prints.  After that, I went back to really check out what Shutterfly had to offer and I made my very first photobook.  I fell in love with that, and I started making bits of everything at  You can make personalized mousepads, calendars, tote bags, notebooks, coasters, mugs, stickers, puzzles, magnets, aprons, tee shirts and much, much more from your favorite photographs!

     On Father's Day, I made some cards for my husband, dad and grandpa!  They were thrilled to have photo cards of my daughter as their Father's Day card.  Each of them expressed how happy they were and that they expected that kind of special card from now on!  The cards were quick and easy to make, so I'll be going back to Shutterfly to make my Photo Christmas Cards and also some Thank You Cards
to send after Christmas. 
      The process of making the cards and other photo goodies is fairly simple, and I found out that I really enjoyed doing it.  All you have to do is decide what project you want to work on.  Then you choose the photos you want to use, and get started!  The hardest problem you'll have is deciding on the photos!!  Shipping fees are reasonable, and you can even pick up your prints at your local Target!

Now for the GIVEAWAY...the wonderful people at Shutterfly offered me the opportunity to give away codes good for 10 free 5x7 flat stationery cards!! Three Shelly's Bits & Pieces readers will win! The code will be good until December 31, 2010, and you will have to pay taxes, shipping and handling, but it's still a great deal!
