Where do you print your photos?

I've been using Swan Photo Labs to print photos by mail. They have great quality but, unfortunately, no bulk discounts so they can be pricey. Another great thing about Swan is they still process film — lots of different kinds of film.

Over the past year I've tried local shops — Walgreens and CVS — but I'm not impressed with the quality. The pictures look like I printed them at home, or maybe not that good.

Here's a review of 10 online photo services (It's a little dated; Kodak Gallery is now run by Shutterfly). I'd like to find the following:
  • Good quality prints
  • Decent prices (eg. bulk discounts)
  • Ability to share with others
  • Free high-resolution downloads (Hey, if I took the picture, I shouldn't have to pay to download it.)
  • Reliable backup, or "cloud" service
  • Quality photobooks and page prints

What do you use, and why do you like it?

Reminisce for Christmas photos

I love the Reminisce theme that came out a few years ago, starting with a genealogy pack and going through the holidays. This week, you can get those beautiful Christmas additions free with any order!


Here's my website. Watch for new products to be added throughout January, including cardstock and personal trimmers.

Guess who's back?

Creative Memories, that's who!



Click on the image to find quality, authentic Creative Memories and Ahni & Zoe products. They’re made in the U.S.A. by the (original) team in St. Cloud, Minnesota. 

You might notice I've been inactive on this site for a few years. I plan to leave the older posts up for fun scrapbooking ideas, even though the links are outdated. Here's my current link, if you'd like to copy or bookmark it: http://www.creativememories.com/user/bethsaunders

If you're interested in becoming a CM Advisor, there's no better time. The cost is $49 per year with NO MINIMUMS. CM is under new ownership with an entrepreneurial perspective. In other words, online promotion and social media are encouraged so you can promote your business your way. You can operate other businesses, too.

On that last note, I plan to add some digital links soon, for those who are more interested in "snapbooking" than "scrapbooking."

I'm happy to be part of this great new company and look forward to serving you!

Elizabeth Saunders
CM Advisor
