Picaboo Photo Books: A Giveaway~


Thanks to Picaboo for sponsoring this post. To learn more about Picaboo photo books, cards, calendars and other printed products visit http://www.picaboo.com/?siteID=B_SN. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.


Good morning, all! Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when I was talking about how I was creating a photo book using Picaboo so that I could attempt to catch up on documenting the million and one digital photos sitting on my hard drive?

Welllllll....my Picaboo book arrived over the weekend and I am in love! And so are the kiddos. The minute they saw that thing they greedily snatched it up and devoured every page of it. I find that my kids love looking through their scrapbooks and photo books more than just about any other book we have.

The finished copy of my book

I chose to make a 12x12 book, and I love the bigger pages. The photos are beautiful...the color is vibrant and the images are crisp. I also love the heavy weight pages (1oo lb. archival quality!) and the fact that it is hardbound. Now I'm thinking I better order one for every kiddo in this house...and probably for both sets of grandparents as well.

On these pages I chose just to use photos and one title.




Picaboo also gives you the option of journaling, which I used on this page about the Hubby's accident.

And today, you're in luck because the good people at Picaboo are offering one reader of the Shabby Nest a $50 gift certificate to use on their site. Good toward your own photo book or any of the other products they have to offer!

You know the drill, simply leave me a comment on this post telling me why you need this giftcard!

You may Tweet, Facebook or blog about this giveaway for extra entries, but you must leave an additional comment for each thing that you do in order for the entry to be valid.

Giveaway open until Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 11:59 PM MST.


This is a sponsored post, but the opinions I've expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint.

Oh boy, could I use this gift certificate! We just attended my dear father-in-law's 80th birthday party. I have lots of photos I need to get into some sort of album as my gift to him. I am sort of overwhelmed and not sure how to start. This would help!

I just took an online course, Wading In over the winter which was about taking self portraits and learning to see yourself in a new light. I love the work I did for that class-I learned so much and it changed my perspective of how I see myself. It was pretty powerful. I've been wanting to have a book made of the images I shot and this would be far and away the most beautiful way to showcase the collection of images I produced.

Keeping my fingers crossed and twittering your giveaway!

You can see my photos on my Flickr, which is under tatterededge. The set is called Wading In.

I need this Peekaboo coupon just because I just made a book with shutterfly and it was absolutely horrible. Shutterfly was not used friendly and I coudnt figure out how to put my photos in order (it changed the order to what ever they wanted). I could not use the size font I wanted.. blah blah blah. I need Peekaboo so that I can get a nice book made.

I can't say I NeEd this.....but I would LoVe to have this to make a book for my mom. She has grand kiddo's in far away places. If we could all add our pictures, she could have a cool book with all of her grand "babies"

Adrienne said...

I would love one to make a photo book. That is how I document all my pictures. However, I have never used Picaboo before.

Sourkraut said...

Your book looks great! I'm currently doing a project where I take a photo every day for a year so I could use my own book to catalog the best shots I come up with.

Daphne Hope said...

I would LOVE this giftcard so I could make my son a baby book before he turns one.

Marfa said...

I would love to create a book using my parents old, black and white wedding photos. Right now the originals are in an ugly photo album. It would be a fabulous anniversary gift to scan those photos and create a beautiful book for them.

Jennifer said...

I need to be making photobooks! I am so far behind!

Kristina said...

Oh! I heart this! I was just putting together a pale alternative to this for my mom. She's going in for a hip replacement and with her Alzheimers we are trying to surround her with photos while she gets re-oriented coming out of the drugs.

I would love to do a blog book as a reminder of our time overseas.
Thanks!!

This would be a well needed gift certificate!! I have so many pictures that I need to put into one place and paper scrapbooking just seems like it's impossible to do! I'd love to be able to put together our latest photos to share with granparents that live far away!

Melissa said...

I can't remember the last time I have developed pictures of our family and I do not scrapbook either. I really could use this certificate to catch up on the memories we have been busy making!

Jud and Lindsey Martin said...

So, I did a book for my first sons first two years and haven't started to think about doing one for my second son. I do not want him to feel cheated as a second child someday. This GC would help get my butt in gear.

Rick, Diane & Nathan said...

I love Picaboo! I just received my son's first birthday book, that I created and everyone loves it. I'm working on a 2010 family yearbook, and how awesome would it be to get it for free!!!

Penelope said...

I need to really go back and make a book for when I homeschooled my grown stepson. I wonder if he'd appreciate having those memories in a book? He is male.

Leslie said...

I'd love to win this. Every picture of my daughter is still on my computer. My son, the oldest, has so many albums, but after she arrived, time became scarce. This would be such a nice way to organize them. She asked me the other day what she looked like when she was a baby. Guilt.

I love these books! I am a mom who has NEVER kept a baby book for my kids, but use our family blog to record milestones and photos... I'd love the chance to put together a Picaboo book as a "real" keepsake!

Jennifer said...

I've been wanting to make a memory book of my mom for my son. She passed away before he was born and I want him to know who she was- what better way than a photo book. Would love to win the credit!

Abby said...

I would love to make a book or two of all of the journeys my husband and I get to experience. My hubby is military and we have lived in 4 different states in the last 3 years...that makes for a lot of journeys. :)

This would be great to have for my dad! He turns 50 this June and it would be great to fill it with pictures from the last 50 years!

Chandra Chinnis said...

I need this gift certificate for many reasons. The number one reason being I have 3 children and out of them only 1 has a baby scrapbook. This certificate would allow me to the pics on my computer and create books for my other 2.

Katie, Trevor, and Baby Probandt said...

I need a gift card because I love photo books and have tons of pictures for my baby boy that I need to put in a book. And I'm about to have my second son in about a month and would love to have it for him too. :-)

Desiree @ Just Another Day in Paradise said...

Would love this gift card to showcase all the pictures of my two beautiful girls that I never get a chance to show anybody because I can't ever find time to get pictures printed! Whew...that's a good reason, isn't it?
Thanks,
Desiree

Emily and Jaime at Everyday Art said...

oh, Me! Me! Me! I would love this gift card. I used to scrapbook our family's adventures, but I didn't love doing it and it was so time consuming. This year I have planned on converting over to online books, but I don't know which source to go with! I'd love to try these guys out with a free gift card. :)

Jennifer said...

I love photo books! I can't wait to use this gift card to make my hubby a book showing our history! He's gonna love it!

AnnasBananas918 said...

I need this because I am the laziest scrapbooker ever, except when it comes to buying scrapbook stuff. My husband says that I will have the world's largest scrapbook if I ever get around to using all of it. :)

Deanna said...

I have not printed out any pictures in well over a year!! This would be just the thing I need to get started!!
