Mini Photo Lunch Box Cards

I wrote this review while participating in a program on behalf of HP and received an HP PC, an HP printer, an Instant Ink starter kit, a Snapfish gift card and other items as part of my participation.  All opinions are strictly my own though. #sponsored #HPFamilyTime


Hi Everyone!  Hope you had a great holiday.  My family and I headed south to this weekend to watch my son play in a baseball tournament.  I can’t even tell you how cute it was to watch these little eight year olds play their hearts out at America’s pastime.  Nothing could be better, at least for me.  My three girls thought otherwise.  Talk about boring!  Luckily my HP Pavilion x360 Envy saved the day.  We were able to download videos for the girls to watch while Luke played baseball.


The HP Pavilion x360 has a 360 degree hinge that makes viewing easy and adds extra stability in the stands.  I was definitely a win for the girls and a win for me.  I was able to take some great shots of the boys in action.






Since my camera is always with me, people often ask me what I do with all the photos I take. I know that photos often get stuck in cyberspace but these are too precious not to share.  The first thing I always do is upload my photos to Snapfish.  It’s such a great site. Beside storing my photos on Snapfish, they also have a great shop where I can make photo gifts, cards and even a photo canvas.

I ALWAYS put together an album of different event to share with family, friends, and in this, case teammates. Snapfish makes it so simple to share your album.


Another thing I try to do with my Snapfish photos is to print out little 2.5x 3.5 inch photos cards to stick in my kids’ lunch boxes. I will often use photos for the weekend before and write a little message on the back or one from when my kids are little to remind them of a special time.  They like those photos the best.  It’s such an easy way to really connect with you kids and let them know how much you love them.



When we are not in school, I will try to sneak one on their bed at night.   I know they have a huge smile on their face when they find photos.  It is so easy to do.  I print them using my most favorite printer-  HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One Printer.  The colors on this printer are so true to life and the clarity is amazing.  Another thing I adore about this printer is the HP Instant Ink replacement service.  For a few dollars each month, ink is ordered by my printer and delivered to my door.  No more running to the store in a panic late at night.  It is so convenient and gives me more time at home.

    Fabulous photos! I haven’t heard of Snapfish but I’m in need of a new system for photos so I’ll have to check it out. I could certainly use that HP Instant Ink program!

    I need a new printer so badly! My current HP always gets a carriage jam & it drives me nuts. The quality of your prints looks great. I’ll have to check out the new Envy. Thanks!

    Love the idea of prining a picture for the lunchbox. I find photo paper sometimes hard to write on, what did you print on? Thanks!
