Happy Tuesday lovelies… boy do I have some pretty for you today! You might have already heard that I love Shutterfly, and the reason why is simple: they give you the tools to be creative, on your own time. From their fabulous wedding stationery to their gorgeous premium photo books, you’re in charge and have the ability to transform each and every one of their items into a truly unique creation. Being able to work on your designs at your own pace, saving them along the way and being able to transfer your information from design to design, is a huge time saver. Also being able to order just 1 invitation to see if you’re happy with your creation, and not being forced to order 10 or more, is a major bonus. So that’s what we’re talking about today… just how creative you can get by using Shutterfly’s unique custom tools and designs and how easy it is, no special skills required to look like a pro!

Custom Wedding Invitations
I have to say that I’m blown away by the creative new wedding stationery designs from Shutterfly! I love the coordinating wedding sets for invites, RSVPs, enclosure cards, address labels and more – and the unique ability to fully customize these designs with just a few clicks is my favorite aspect. Within each design you are able to choose your own fonts, customize the wording, choose between specialty cardstock, and fully personalize your design by deciding on a trim, envelope liner and envelope color. With so many different options, no one will be able to copy your style or have the same invitation you do – which I know my DIY brides love!
I ordered and personalized all the designs you see here using the elements above and not only did I have a fabulous time, but I LOVE how they turned out! In fact, my assistant couldn’t believe that I was able to pick each and every different part because normally, that just isn’t the case… but not with Shutterfly!

Custom Bridal Shower Invitations
I’m obsessing over these modern bridal shower invitations and how easy it is to personalize them! For the first invitation I edited the fonts a bit, chose to match the pale pink envelope liner to the card and then finished it off with rounded corner trim and a gold shimmer envelope. For the second invite I picked a ticket trim with a white envelope and a bold black stripe liner to compliment the black elements in the design… which would be perfect for any “bubbly brunch” you’re hosting might I add – not just for a bridal shower!

Custom Bachelorette Party Invitations
You can really have fun and go the extra mile when it comes to bachelorette party invitations, am I right? Since you only have to order a few (usually there aren’t 40 gals attending the event like a shower) you can splurge on shimmer paper, trim options, envelope liners, possibly add some confetti or dried rose petals in the envelope or maybe even embellish the invites with glitter! Any gal would be lucky to have her maids go a little nuts on Shutterfly.com for her bach-bash!

Custom Photo Thank You Cards
Photo thank you cards are one of the best ways to share your beautiful wedding photography with your loved ones! Many will not see your pretty pictures after the event and this detail is the perfect way to say thanks. I personally can’t throw photo cards away and have a stack of them that I love looking through. When you think about it, getting a photo card is really like getting a little present! I love both of these designs and they perfectly illustrate the wide range of options that Shutterfly offers as they are the same image – with two incredibly different looks. The holidays will be upon us soon, so also think about using your wedding photos to create personalized newlywed holiday cards!

Custom Guest Books + Memory Books
How adorable are these photo books!?! I’m dying over the Story Telling Style of both! What is that you ask? It’s a unique feature Shutterfly offers when designing their photo books. Within each album theme there are guided design styles and even page ideas to give you inspiration while designing your unique album. I’m crazy for this guest book design! There are loads of adorable design elements that have been specifically created for guest books, from page embellishments and cover designs to page styles that give your guests room to write, places to fill in funny questions or even draw a picture… a far cry from the photo book guest books of the past! Same thing with the darling bridal shower photo book. Having such lovely predesigned pages and bridal shower specific embellishments truly makes your album look professional.
Remember, for all photo books you can upload images from your computer, phone or even social media! Meaning after your special event, you can browse Facebook or Instagram and use the pretty pictures that your friends took!

Custom Premium Photo Books
As a DIY bride, you can feel a little let down and as if you have nothing to do once your wedding is over. But cheer up darlings because the fun is just beginning! You will absolutely love the process of making your own Premium Wedding Photo Book with Shutterfly! From the double-thick, premium professional-grade paper pages to the storytelling style, premium designs and embellishments, these albums are stunning. They can be a more affordable option than a photographer’s album, and extra special because you create it yourself. One of my favorite details is the seamless, layflat pages – nothing is lost in the fold with these beauties! To learn the simple steps of how to make your own Shutterfly photo book, you can see how I created one with my wedding images here. I had so much fun! Poured myself some wine, worked on the album a little each night for about a week and thoroughly enjoyed the process and I’m head over heels for my gorgeous custom album!
