As you may have read a few weeks ago, I am partnering with the amazing brand, Shutterfly to bring you fresh ideas using their home decor collection! This month, I created several new projects and had SO much fun working on them. I designed a variety of items, some with photos and some with graphics. I’m so excited to share them with you and hope that they inspire you to create something amazing to preserve your memories! Let’s start with the photo above, which is a 5″ x 7″ Custom Desktop Plaque! I came up with a quote that I knew would be a great way to start each day. It reads, “Today Will Be Fabulous” and I designed the graphic using Microsoft Publisher. I love how this plaque came out! It is a nice, thick material with a glossy finish, rounded corners and a built-in black easel. It looks perfect right next to lucky “Ellie” the elephant on my desk!

The next project I created is my favorite of the bunch! These are Photo Gallery Acrylic Blocks. They are so cool! The blocks are a thick acrylic and are very modern in style. They come in two sizes (5″x5″ and 5″x7″) that look great right next to each other. I decided it would be cute to do one using a black and white photo of the kids and one with a graphic print (heart + love.) I think they turned out adorable!

Okay wait, did I say the Acrylic Blocks were my favorite? Hmmm….maybe these Photo Cubes are actually my favorite?! I can’t decide. For the cubes, I used a photo from each of the kids’ 1st – 5th birthday parties. I loved looking back at old photos and can’t believe how quickly my babies have grown up. The kids loved seeing all of the photos too and it reminded me that I really need to do more with our family photos than just have them sit on my hard drive. I think Shutterfly has quite a few options to help me with this problem!
The last project I worked on was using Shutterfly’s Photo Gallery Wood Wall Art. They actually print your photo right on the wood! Pretty cool, right? The photo I used was one that I took while on a trip to Europe with my husband back in 2004. (pre-digital camera days) This was the hotel we stayed at in Amsterdam. Such a fun way to turn a memory into a piece of art!
