Shutterfly: 4 Free Photo Gifts (Just Pay Shipping)

03/28/2015. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

photo gifts

This weekend Shutterfly is offering your choice of four photo gifts.  You choose the one you like and just paying shipping on the item.

I love these promotions and this time around I am doing the labels for sure.  I like to get them as gift tags from each of my girls.  I don’t like to always buy birthday cards for the endless parties they are invited to since small ones don’t really care about cards anyway.  So the gift tags work beautifully and save me a few bucks each time.

You’ll want to test the shipping ahead just to be sure but typically it is about $3 per item.

Choose from a Magnet (these are very large and very nice), a luggage tag, a pet tag, or address/gift labels.

Head over here to Shutterfly and use coupon code: GIFT4U at checkout.

The promotion runs through Sunday only.

Whoppers Cupcakes


Here is a fun recipe for Easter or for parties this year.

My littlest daughter absolutely loves Whoppers candy – it is always her first choice when we hit the candy aisle.

I thought it would be fun to do a Whoppers cupcake for my sweet girl- which she absolutely loved.

You can use any variety of Whoppers but I chose these pretty Easter Robin Egg Whoppers.    So fun when you are looking for an alternative to coconut cakes and lemon tarts on Easter.

  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until
  7. smooth.
  8. Fill the muffin tins to the halfway mark.
  9. Bake for 15-17 minutes (depends on your oven) until a toothpick
  10. comes out clean when inserted into the middle.
  11. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
  12. For the frosting:
  13. In a medium bowl, sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa.
  14. Set aside.
  15. In a large bowl or mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
  16. Slowly add in the sugar mixture.
  17. Once combined, add in the whipping cream followed by the vanilla.
  18. Combine until light and fluffy.
