Preserve Your Kid’s Childhood Memories With This Shortcake Photo Book in 3 Easy Steps

September 6, 2016 in Motherhood, Product Review, Uncategorized - No Comments - 3 min read

If there is one thing any parent has in common it’s that they probably have hundreds (more like thousands for me) of photos of their children in their phones. They usually get picked through and the best ones get uploaded to social media. The rest probably end up on your Google photo or Drop box drive never to be seen again. If you’re like me, you have all the best intentions of putting an album or photo book together of your baby’s first year, or a family yearbook but it just keeps getting put on the backburner. Well now you can preserve all of your kid’s childhood memories with this Shortcake photo book in 3 EASY steps!

First, a little back-story on this awesome company: Shortcake. Shortcake is an album design service started by Coralee Dixon, a mother who was simply looking for a better solution for her own daughter’s baby book. Shortcake focuses on new parents and grandparents who want to truly preserve memories so they will last a lifetime while taking into account the busy schedules of young families these days.

Shortcake created the most beautiful “First Year” book for my Lola and what I loved most about it was I had to do minimal work yet I have this beautiful masterpiece that will last a lifetime! The book pulled together some of my favorite moments from Lola’s first year and they came right from my social media accounts without me needing to sift through the thousands of pictures. I didn’t have to find a way to organize them by date or upload them on my own.  ALL the “dirty work” was done for me! It literally took me less than 10 minutes to gather the information needed to make this gorgeous book.

 

So here is how YOU can have a book like this in 3 EASY steps:

  1. Connect your social media (or photo storage accounts) & get started HERE. You simply grant access to these locations and the Shortcake team of designers can get to work on your behalf! They find all the best images from your accounts and they even include the “Caption” from your social media account to the photos so they too can be referenced in years to come. My favorite part about that is that the captions from Lola’s monthly photos (that I had posted to my Instagram) were transferred over and thus including all of her monthly weight/height/accomplishment stats! Being my second baby we all know she doesn’t have a complete baby book like her sister so this totally made up for that without me having to go back and dig all the information up! I also had a page included in the back where I can still go write some of her firsts that maybe weren’t mentioned in the photo book. The designs to choose from are out of this world as well and they are right on trend with the different styles that are currently in-trend.
  2. After Shortcake Inc. has all of your information they get working on your photo book. Once the design is complete they send you a link to preview it and you then have the opportunity to request any edits.
  3. Sit back and wait for your cherished memories to show up at your door in the form of a beautifully curated photo book that you AND your children will treasure for a lifetime. I can’t say enough good things about our photo book and I am eager to order again in the future!

  • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether

  • Giving you a tour of the under the stairs playhouse as it stands now on the blog tonight! The fort inside is just as well made as out the outside and I was happy to test it out for the kids 😜 They still haven’t seen it! It’s going to be good. Head to the link in my bio (I will post in stories too along with a video tour) for more! I’m so excited for the kids to see it! Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
  • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
  • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
  • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
