more than one way to raise a child

ABC Book by Shutterfly

ABC Book by Shutterfly

One of The Boy’s favourite first birthday present was the personalised ABC book we made him using Shutterfly.

It was such a fun project to make and he loves looking at all of the pictures, especially of friends and family we don’t see too often.

I chose Shutterfly as it’s ABC book already has a cute layout with animal pictures and bright colours. I have also previously found Shutterfly to be of great quality and really easy to use.

Creating the Book

To get started on Shutterfly you need to set up an account. They have lots of fun templates – for this project I chose to make a square photo book using their ABC theme.

Once you have chosen, it’s just a case of uploading your photos and updating your alphabet words. You can link your account to your Google photos, Facebook or Instagram or you can upload your pictures from your computer or mobile device.

Then it’s just a case of checking out – and making sure you’ve used one of the many discount codes. For a free photo book use our code here.
