I have been using Shutterfly for all my photo needs for quite some time now. I usually get all of my prints from Shutterfly. I like the prepaid photo print plan because then I can get the prints so inexpensively and since I have already paid for it, I can just put in my order rather than finding where I left my purse. ;)
I also do a lot of scrapbooking this way. Both myself and my mother-in-law have made many a photo book on Shutterfly. I love how many options there are to make the book just the way you want it. I have made Shutterfly photo albums of my kids artwork, special father's day book, and baby's first year. My favorite though is making my family blog into a book. I know there are other websites out there that will pull your blog into a book for you, but I really like how I transfer it over into a Shutterfly book and I can customize the pages.
A fun photo book that does not take much effort at all is My Amazing Alphabet Adventures. My mother-in-law has made one of these for Aidan and I think she has just made one for Ella. Aidan LOVED seeing his face is all these fun pictures and really is a great ABC book.
One other thing I have already made to give to Aidan as a gift this Christmas is a Blank Notebook. I got to choose the style and add his picture to the front. He has really been enjoying drawing lately and I thought he would love his own personalized little notebook.
Some years I make calendars with lots of pictures of my little cuties for grandmas and grandpas. I usually make the wall calendar, but it is nice that they have other formats as well.
I also have ordered our birth announcements and holiday cards from Shutterfly. They always have so many beautiful cards to choose from! This year I think I have it narrowed down to:
Retro Snowflake Bursts Christmas 5x7 photo card
Snowflakes And Wishes Christmas 5x7 photo card
Vivid Hope Christmas 5x7 photo card
Can you tell I am drawn to the "browns". We had our family pictures taken outside this fall, so I think any of these would work really well with our photos.
Which card do you like best?
