If you're not familiar with Groupon, it's a coupon-type website that has daily offers from various companies...some are local to specific areas and others are for online retailers. Since Shutterfly is on online retailer, today's deal is available to everyone no matter where you live!

If you're not familiar with Shutterfly, they are an online retailer of photo prints and other photo-related products. Their photo books are outstanding! It's a great way to get your digital scrapbook pages printed and bound into a book...you can even upload scans or photos of your paper-and-paste scrapbook pages. Or you can use their premade templates to just plug in your photos and make a quick-and-easy keepsake book! The Shutterfly photo books make excellent gifts, and the possibilities are endless. They are ideal to make theme books for vacations, weddings, family reunions, recipes, and more!

Shutterfly also has a partnership with Creating Keepsakes, and they offer several pre-made digital scrapbooks from the magazine's designers that you can also use. Some of the book designs offered include:
If you're like me, the idea of scrapbooking all your photos is completely overwhelming...not to mention impossible! I know that I'll never be "caught up" with scrapbooking all my photos...first of all, I take photos way faster than I make scrapbook layouts! Plus, I like to relax and enjoy the creative process when I scrapbook...I don't want to just "get it done." That's why I'm a big fan of photo books...they allow you to get photos captured in print that would otherwise just be stored on the computer (or in boxes). At least that way, you can enjoy them with your family and friends!

You can check out the gallery at Shutterfly to see thousands of examples of photo books that others have created. Here are a few of my favorite photo books from the Shutterfly gallery:

Kindergarten Art by GeorgeH8:
LOVE this idea for storing all the kids' art work and school projects! Such a great way to keep their creative works without having to store the actual pieces (macaroni art does not do well in storage)...and don't we all need to find ways to de-clutter? And now Grandma (and anyone else who looks through the photo book) is able to appreciate the creations of your budding little artists.

Encyclopedia of ME by Emilie:
Another great idea! This one is really creative...such a cool way to do an all-about-me book.

Blossoms and Butterflies by Kjeanette:
A fabulous collection of photos...I'll admit I'm a sucker for shots of flowers and butterflies! And I am so ready for Spring right now, so these pics are like a breath of fresh air! The Shutterfly photo books would be perfect to showcase your favorite photos like this...sort of a portfolio of your best shots. What a great coffee table book, too!

Orlando 2007 by HeatherAnn:
This is digital scrapbooking at its finest. Love the digital layouts in this photo book! Heather Ann Melzer is an amazingly talented designer...she also sells her designs online HERE.

I could go on and on with photo book samples...there are so many great ideas out there! So what are you waiting for? Get your groupon, and start making your Shutterfly photo book!
Remember, this deal is available TODAY only, so be sure to get yours before it's gone: Shutterfly Photo Book Deal
