When my daughter was a baby, I used to be an avid scrapbooker. I'd spend hours crafting meticulous layouts, getting the perfect shots, and coordinating papers and embellishments. Then my second child came along. I tried to keep up with my hobby, but the demands of raising two little kids and managing a growing website quickly ate up all my time.
Recently, I discovered a quick and easy way to create a scrapbook that doesn't take much time or money. I have been taking advantage of the free photo collage offers from Walgreens as well as any free 8×10 print offers and using them as my scrapbook pages and insert them in the top-loading 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbooks. Hobby Lobby and Michaels have the 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbooks in which to put your pages. Amazon also carries them in a variety of colors and styles. This way, I can create a page in under five minutes and I have a way to archive and share all those great photo deals and photo freebies!
I ordered my collage prints on Tuesday on Walgreens.com with coupon code PRINTFOR40 to save an additional 40% off the price (that Walgreens Coupon Code is valid through Saturday, October 13th). We've got lots of other photo deals as well.
