    I like the Shutterfly Harvest Hues photo book template. I love the neutral tones and the nrandom arrangement of the photos.

  2. Jessica L'Heuruex says:

    I love the Rock On template – I’m a sucker for the black background – it simply makes pictures pop!

  3. M Blalock says:

    I like the ABC’s template the best!

  4. Kat says:

    Modern Portfolio!

  5. Chris says:

    Hmm. It’s a toss up between Modern Black and Happiness Is…

  6. Nicole Hillstead says:

    I love the Confetti Splash! great colors :)

  7. Belinda Penaloza says:

    I really like the custom option, however, of the pre-made templates, Confetti Splash warms my heart.

  8. Kerry says:

    I really like the “Hit the Road” template – it would be perfect for the big road trip I just took with my husband, and two cats!

  9. Bonnie says:

    I like the modern black–sort of makes you feel like you’re ina dark room watching home videos.
    Here’s hoping!

  10. Jenny Bolech says:

    Wow they’ve got a lot of great new options since i last made a book! I really love the Family Memories template :)

  11. Erica says:

    Hmmm…Probably Modern Black or Versatile Classics. It really would depend on the purpose/content of the book, though.

  12. cassandra says:

    My favorite template has to be the basic black. :) Though it was hard to choose!

  13. Samantha Kramer says:

    Would most likely use the custom option – but love the “planes/trains” as a template. I made a photo book last year for my folks when they came to visit me in NYC, documenting their trip. This would be perfect for anyone else visiting!!

  14. Maria says:

    I like the Travel Snapshots template — it’d go great with all our travel photos :)

  15. Margaret S. says:

    Having been looking at these for wedding books, I love the “Oh Baby Girl” template. For other photos I really like the look of the Versatile Classics.

  16. Jana Demetral says:

    I like the Natural Neutrals! So perfect!

  17. Kaela Champlin says:

    I love the “travel snapshots” custom path style template. The backgrounds look like old maps. This would make a really beautiful travel photo journal.

  18. Kris says:

    Modern Portfolio – because when you tell someone that you make stuff you’d better be ready to show them pictures.

  19. Lisa says:

    Hit the Road would be perfect for all my travel photos. I also love Modern Portfolio for day to day pictures.

  20. Erich Campbell says:

    I like the Black and White backdrop style, but the ModernBlack is nice as well. Knowing me, though, I’d want to go full custom. Here’s hoping! ;)

  21. Audie says:

    I like the Modern Black, but I really love the colors and patterns of Oh So Mod and Good Times. I guess it depends on what the content is.

  22. carolyn c says:

    I love the Wine and Chocolate one.

  23. SeamstressErin says:

    I like the modern wedding template. The fleur de lis patterns are super pretty!

  24. Kylie D says:

    Modern Portfolio for sure- it really allows the photo to stand out and make a statement on its own. :)

  25. LeeAnn Wilmot says:

    Oh, I think I like Rock On the best, but I better post my comment now because if I look again, I will change my mind because I sure like them all!

  26. Roberta Lander Oden says:

    I love the Black and White backdrop as well as the simple full page bleed… DROOL.

  27. Sarah says:

    Wine and Chocolate is nice – nice and classy!

  28. Dee Leitner says:

    I really like Bon Voyage. I would love to make a photo book of my trip with my mother to Berlin this year.

  29. Roberta Lander Oden says:

    Ooops, I think my email was posted incorrectly above. THIS is the correct one!

  30. Lou says:

    I really like Simply White under the Everyday category on the custom path. Some of the styles aren’t matched to the text that describes them, though. I noticed this on the Seasonal tab.

  31. Nicole says:

    Pretty Pink! I just adore pink!

  32. Danielle says:

    I love Shutterfly! I did my daughter’s first birthday album using the “Oh Baby Girl”, but I think the next book I want to do is with the Good Times template. Very vibrant & cute!

  33. Rachel K E says:

    I’m usually not a girly girl, but I have to go with Girls Rule.

  34. kris says:

    For most of my photos I prefer “Modern Portfolio”. Simple neutral backgrounds really allow the photos to “speak” for themselves.

  35. Eric says:

    I like Modern Black, it’s clean looking and emphasizes the pictures.

  36. Erin @ GoBananasBlog says:

    I like the Oh So Mod template!

  37. Alex says:

    Modern Black. Nice and simple. I’d probably use the custom path now that they have it, though!

  38. Britney Haberl says:

    I am loving the “Confetti Splash” colors and chevron! Such a good giveaway, good luck to everyone!

  39. Bree says:

    Modern Black for sure!

  40. Liza says:

    I love the “Year of Us” template. That’s what most of our photos are so that would work wonderfully with my family.

  41. Katie says:

    watercolor wedding!

  42. Cheryl says:

    Modern Portfolio, although it was a tough call between any of the portfolio styles.

  43. Lisa E. says:

    Noel – I haven’t made a Christmas book yet, and this would be perfect for a few years of Christmas pics.

  44. Kristen says:

    Modern Black (or is it Portfolio?)is my standby favorite, although I do like the Happiness is… one too. Thanks for the chance to win!

  45. Belinda says:

    I’m a sucker for all things cute and crazy, so the kids templates really appeal to me. However, my dream is to someday take a road trip, so I’m choosing Joy Ride! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a nifty prize :-)

  46. Queta says:

    I like, Oh Baby Boy – it’s adorable!

  47. Krysta says:

    Modern black is classic and I love that you can completely customize the layouts.

  48. kristen says:

    I like the Pet Projects one since we just got a dog and he needs his own book.

  49. Candice says:

    Confetti Splash for sure! So cute!

  50. Rebecca M says:

    Modern Portfolio for sure!

  51. laurel says:

    i liked joy ride!

  52. Amber says:

    Happy Hauntings! I want to make a book with every Halloween costume my son has worn.

  53. susan says:

    I like the simple white. Boring, maybe, but really shows off the pics.

  54. Cindy Carlson says:

    I like the new Travel Snapshots template. =]

    Modern Black is my favorite.

  56. megs says:

    The custom path looks great!

  57. John says:

    I like the looks of Modern Black

  58. Micah says:

    The custom path looks really great. I like the modern black background–it really shows off the photos

  59. TK says:

    The Modern Black template is my favorite.

  60. Jessica says:

    Pet Project for sure! I love the colors and patterns and that they offer something special for the fuzzy members of our families.

  61. Heather says:

    Modern Black all the way!

  62. Tracy says:

    I just made a book of family for my 6-month-old son and used the modern black and white template – super clean and shows off the photos. The book has been a lot of fun for him to see pictures of family – especially those that live far away.

  63. Cari says:

    I like Favorite Recipes. I’d love to make a cookbook of all our family favorites!

  64. Erin says:

    I’m feeling partial to the Something Special template as a great way to showcase all the old photos of my grandparents I recently scanned from old albums.

  65. Julie Poole says:

    As a bit of a Christmas/Winter holiday addict, I really like the Noel themed book. Would love to win this package! :)

  66. carolyn says:

    Modern Black!

  67. Jenny Doriot says:

    I absolutely love the Wine and Chocolate template. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  68. kat says:

    My favorite template is between “bon voyage” and “vintage travel”. I absolutely love getting up and going. I’m always exploring new places and a shutterfly book is perfect for capturing all those adventures

  69. Emily says:

    Last week I used Baby Girl, Modern to make a book for my daughter’s first birthday. Loved the colors and embellishments, girly but not overly so. Can’t wait to get it in the mail!

  70. Randi says:

    I love Bon voyage

  71. Asia says:

    I really like the birthday book ideas. I think they would make a fantastic gift for a loved one to celebrate many birthdays shared. I didn’t realize they were so affordable and so professional looking. I’m already thinking about upcoming birthdays. :)

  72. David says:

    I like the Black & White Backdrop – dark background helps emphasize the photos, subtle pattern keeps interest.

  73. Cyn says:

    I love Fresh and Fun

  74. Donna Worth says:

    I like the Dress-up Diva in the Custom Path. I love that ping and green combo! I would use it to make an album of the programs we’ve had at the library I work at.

  75. Chelsea says:

    Definitely Modern Black, I love Shutterfly!

  76. Mel says:

    It’s amazing that anyone can make a book so easily. Oh technology <3

  77. Evan says:

    I like the Modern Portfolio best. It’s nice and clean and keeps the focus on the photos.

  78. Mel says:

    I like the modern black but I’d probably go for the custom route if I made one. Technology <3

  79. Tina C. says:

    I know it doesn’t sound adventurous, but I like the black backgrounds so the photos really pop!

  80. Michele says:

    I like the Modern Portfolio, custom 12 x 12 book. It’s uncluttered, has an elegant layout and looks like photos would stand out against black pages.

  81. Lisa says:

    Wow, what a great giveaway! I have never seen these type of photobooks before, they’re astounding, and they look simple to put together, I’d love a chance to win! My favorite template is the Harvest Hues, they mix with so many beautiful colors.
    Thanks!

  82. Tricia says:

    I love the Versatile Classic!

  83. Gloria Cardenas says:

    Pop Rocks!

  84. Jenny says:

    I’ve ordered several of these photo books and I think my favorite is still classic black. It really highlights the photos.

  85. Heather Hernandez says:

    I love the Amusement Park design template in the Custom Path. The stickers and frames help create a fun and bright page layout. And Shutterfly has made it so easy to add more backgrounds and stickers to their established designs. I might end up using this design for my photos from the fair.

  86. Ame says:

    I think it’s because I’m so happy about the holiday season, but I like Noel! It’s got the slightly kitschy holiday look to it!

  87. Bethe says:

    I can’t decide between Modern Portfolio and Versatile Classics – but I will definitely choose something neutral. That way, the colors in the photo really pop, and I think it will be less dated as the years go on. We’ll be able to pull it out and look at it and not feel so old (haha!).

  88. jenn a.f. says:

    I like the “Rock On” Portfolio

  89. Lisa says:

    Vintage Travel!

  99. Katherine says:

    I like the “hit the road” template!

  100. Arrakis says:

    I’m really liking the Custom Path style. I want to make a book for my wedding and this style is exactly like what I was envisioning in my head before I even looked at the Shutterfly site! I’m liking either the Modern Wedding or the Modern Floral Wedding styles for my summer garden wedding (2 years ago… oops)! I did a book for my daughter when she was born and we love it!

  101. hilary says:

  102. Shannon says:

  107. Adriana says:

    I’m not getting married any time soon, but Oh Baby Girl gives a wedding books such a cute feel.

  108. Melissa Aellos says:

  156. Evin Cooper says:

    boyhood! suits my boy perfectly :)

  167. Betty McMillan says:

    The Photo as Background photo book would be a lovely way to display images. I stumbled across this and never realized you could do this! What a beautiful idea — my photos are only in a picture box now. Would love to win a camera and incorporate my journeys into a book!

    I love amusement park, this would make a great format for family photos.

    I like the soft yet bright blue and yellow pallet used in the Modern Floral Wedding style (it will be a wonderful way to showcase pictures of my spring wedding)!

  185. Christine says:

    I think that the harvest hues is the best choice for a book that doesn’t yet have an obvious theme. Although, I will say that I’m a sucker for the baby girl one too.

  186. EllenQ says:

    Modern Floral Wedding would be great for all sorts of things, not just weddings.

    I like “the year of firsts” it seems like a perfect template for a gift for grandparents from my one year old.

  204. Brenna says:

    I love having control of what goes in my photo books, so the custom path is great! From what I saw, all of the templates look great, but I tend to like warmer hues, like the Harvest Hues.

  205. Silvia says:

    I love the Happiness is!

  206. Allyson Evers says:

    I LOVE the Custom Path format 8 x 8! I am going to use the idea of recipies… what a great idea for family members to put together and print out multiple copies!

  207. Martha says:

    I love the Pet Project but also the Seasonal design.

  208. Katy Rush says:

    I like the Distinguished Textures photo book template from Shutterfly.

  213. Melissa says:

    I love the words of faith style!

  214. Laura S says:

    Modern Portfolio!

  216. jeni says:

    The modern portfolio has some really nice, neutral colors to use as a backdrop.

  219. Emily A. says:

    I am loving the new custom template! Very cool. My husband and I got married in February and we still haven’t had our wedding photos printed. We’re totally being slackers. I cant wait to finally print them using the custom template to print for all of the family members that were at the wedding.

  220. Sylvia Flores says:

    Loving the modern black. So many options!

  221. Heidi Lynn Grether Corcoran says:

    I love them all but Modern Black template is my favorite. Awesome contest.

  225. Tammy says:

    I like the Noel template. There are cute back grounds and embellishments. I love the custom path option for the photobook. Its great that now you can use a photo for the background. Also you can move and adjust pictures how you want them and add text anywhere.

  226. ewild says:

    I liked Confetti Splash. It’s nice and colorful. Summer Splash comes in a close second, though.

    I’m new to this photography hobby, I never realized there were so many different things to do with photos. I like the Shutterfly site, can’t remember ever seeing it before. I like the beach theme, we spend a week in Gulf Shores each year, this would be a great thing to do with my pictures!!

  247. Caley C says:

    I love the Happiness Is template; it has such a great combination of modern style and whimsy.

  248. Vanessa says:

    I think the Modern Portfolio is the best one by far. t has such versatility and allows you to focus on the quality and content of the shot and less on the arrangement. Very nice!

  249. Elizabeth says:

    I love Happiness Is… and Bon Voyage. I’d probably make an album of travel photos and those would really allow the pictures to stand out.

  250. charlotte L says:

    I like the custom photobooks…I have a touch choice between winter wonderland and the Modern Wedding. I like them both….if I have to decide on one.. it would be Winter wonderland.

  251. Tricia says:

    Harvest Hues is my favorite template, but I’d probably use the “custom path” to make my own photo book.

  252. Reni says:

    Rock On is my favorite – the semigloss black pages really allow the photos to be in the spotlight.

  253. ErickaJo says:

    Harvest Hues is lovely. I was married in the fall, and over four years later I’ve yet to do anything with the pictures. Thank you!

    I like the Favorite Recipes with custom path. I love the embellishments, especially the bird.

  267. George Liem says:

    modern black

  268. Mariessa says:

    I love the modern black! I’d really love to take some new photos and see how they look in this layout as a book.
    Also it would be nice to have a camera that is better quality than the camera on my phone.
    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  269. nycdesigner says:

    I always use the custom templates because as a designer I can have complete control of the layout. I make high-res JPEGs in Photoshop using Shutterfly’s downloadable guides. The quality is outstanding; especially the leather-bound hardcovers.

  270. Marti says:

    I like the Custom Path so you can choose the pages you want to match the theme and style of your photos.

  278. Mary Goldthwaite-Gagne says:

    My favorite is the clean look of the Modern Portfolio!

  279. Michelle Weikert says:

    I love the Modern Portfolio via the custom path. I like to bring attention to the photos, rather than the backgrounds when I am making photobooks. Shutterfly is the best share site out there!

  280. Wendy says:

    I love the Top 10 Photos template. That’s probably the one I’d use if I won!

  281. Brandi M says:

    I love the Favorite Recipe template! Just sent 5 books out to grandparents… best (and easiest) present this year!

  282. Lara says:

    Simply White. I am not a fan of the stickers and canned phrases. We like to write our own captions and often adapt the colors in the template to suit our tastes.

  283. Charlotte Loftus says:

    I’m definitely in a winter mood waiting for snow to finally appear, so my favorite is Winter Wonderland. I love the bare trees and snowflakes. Makes me wanna stay home and sip cocoa.

  292. Toni says:

    I really like the Modern Portfolio. Understated, but elegant. Nice.

  293. Dorothy says:

    I like the Simple Path option, 8×8 size. I get overwhelmed with too many choices, so this would make ordering books so much easier. I like the smaller size of the 8×8, too, easy to handle, easy to store or ship. Thank you for hosting this give-away!

  294. J. Riggs says:

    Modern Black!
    Although I saw several others I’d like to play with!

  295. Dawn says:

  298. Carly says:

    Modern Portfolio!

  299. Elizabeth says:

    Hard to choose between the “Happiness Is” and the “Words of Faith” templates. I’ve made Shutterfly books before, and Custom Path is truly an awesome new feature. I’m so glad they added it!

  300. Penny says:

    I usually use Simple Path and Confetti Splash or Harvest Hues. I love putting together photo books for the family, but especially my in-laws. Since the can’t get out as much, it is really nice to have a book that they can share at the retirement village. Makes it special. I also sent one to my granddaughter as a keepsake from her summer with us. It was a great “back to school, show and tell” item. I love Shutterfly!

  301. Valerie says:

    I love the Pet Project…so many photos of my dogs that can be used!

    Happy New Year!

  306. Yan says:

    I like the custom path because I am free to do what I want creatively on each page. I love using the bright color pages!

  307. Dana says:

    I LOVE the custom path as there’s flexibility in how to arrange the pictures. I’m a hands-on scrapbooker and am thinking about going digital. I’d really like to win this, thank you for sharing! Dana

  308. Yvette says:

    I like the clean templates the best…I think Modern Portfolio is my favorite!
