#Snapfish {Review & Giveaway} #spon

I've always wanted to be a scrapbooker.  I tried the "old fashioned" way of cutting boarders and adding embellishments years ago and quickly learned I didn't have time for that.  More recently I downloaded software to create digital scrapbook pages.  I've used it some for photos and collages to use on my blog, but I haven't ever printed any.  Then I realized Snapfish had themed books with backgrounds, embellishments and various layouts!  This was my kind of "scrapbooking!"

Creating a Snapfish photo book to show off my Disney vacation photos was easy and fun! Snapfish photo books start at $29.99 for an 8x11 premium photo hardcover book with up to 20 pages at no cost- plus they offer free shipping!  My first task was to upload all my photos to Snapfish and choose which ones I wanted to use for my album.
Once my photos were selected, I was able to choose the size and color of the book. 
The next part was my favorite! I got to choose the theme of my book. I chose "Mickey Mouse Fun" that has 21 different backgrounds.  There were several other Disney themes, but this one fit my personality best!
The most time consuming part was personalizing the book from the covers to the individual pages.  I could choose the page layout- how many photos were to be displayed on each page, the background to use and embellishments to add.  Once the page was set the way I wanted it, I could drag and drop photos into the photo spots.   

In step 5, "Review", I was able to see just how each page of my book would look once it was printed.  This was fun! I enjoyed seeing all our memories laid out on the pages of this book.  Once I was satisfied with my book, I added it to my cart, paid and waited for it to be delivered to my house! 

When I had ordered my book, the email said it could take up to 5 days to create and an additional 5 days to ship.  I was fully prepared for it to take well over a week.  When my book was completed and sitting on my doorstep in just 6 days, I was thrilled! 
The memories saved in this book were from our Walt Disney World trip 3 years ago when C-man was 2 years and 8 months old.  When he and I looked at our finished book together once it arrived, he said, "When did Big E go to Disney World?"  He thought the photos of him were of his little brother!  Once I reminded him that it was him in those photos, he started bringing back old memories from that trip.  It was fun to reminisce together.

  1. I used to be an old fashioned scrap-booker before I had my baby but have no time for it now. This seems like the perfect idea!

  2. My daughter and boyfriend are taking my grand daughter in October for her 2nd trip, I would love to make a memory book for them with all the photos. I like the Mickey Mouse -Family fun.

  3. Definitely would make a Disney book!! Love this idea!

  4. This is such a great idea! I loved seeing the pictures, and it brought back great memories. Beautiful, professional book!

  5. I think I need to create the "Travel Stamp" version to document our European vacation!

  6. The Seaside one would be cool, but I can't turn away from the Mickey Mouse Fun one! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  7. I would love the Mickey Mouse Photo Book - it would really be the perfect theme for our vacations, though in all honesty, we would love them all!

  8. This is great! I always use Shutterfly for my books, but am never satisfied with the background options. I had NO IDEA that snapfish had Disney backgrounds! I'm torn between Mickey Fun and Mickey Retro!

  9. I had no idea that Snapfish made Disney books! So much more affordable too! I would like either the Mickey Fun or the Road Trip since we drove this past trip to Disney. Thanks for the opportunity!
