Mixbook Review and Giveaway



I love taking pictures of my kids and keeping memories, but who has the time to have them printed and put in photo albums with little ones running around. 
I decided about a year ago that I would abandon the whole photo album thing, and transition to photo books only. 

I was very excited when I was given the opportunity to try Mixbook photo books.  I've tried many different companies, and I was interested to see what made Mixbook different. 

I really enjoyed the photo book making process. 

Their books are a 100% customizable, and allows you to begin with either a blank book or an existing template that can then be edited to your liking.  It was very easy to use and fun to customize.  I am definitely not the most artistic person out there, but they give you lots of examples, and ideas that it becomes really easy to add-in little decorations and text.

We just got back from a little vacation to Orlando, so I took the opportunity to make my vacation photo book.  I used one of their many templates, and was able to easily change a couple of the backgrounds so that they blended with my pictures better.  I loved using their "Stickers" to fill in any empty spots on the pages.  Overall, I was very pleased with the "making" process of the book, now all that was left was to wait until it arrived to see the real result...

My Mixbook photo book came out beautiful!  And it shipped a lot quicker than expected!  The colors are great, and the quality is amazing.  I would definitely recommend their books.  Everyone who has seen this Mixbook photo book was impressed, and thought I must of worked for hours on it. I won't tell them Mixbook did all the work!! 


BUY IT:  They offer many sizes and different prices.  Use Mixbook Coupon Code: KDNDLS25 to get 25% your order!!  One time use per customer.

    I recently made a mixbook photobook when they were giving them away free, and I was so surprised at how it came out and how quickly I got it as well. I made my mom a photobook for Mothers Day from Walmart and now I wish I had known about Mixbook so I could have gotten it from there. Really they are just so amazing! Anyways I think I would make a book using pictures of my niece, and kind of make it into a story for her =)
