I love that it’s so easy these days to upload our favorite photos and create photo books, prints, cards, calendars, and many more things that showcase our memories in a special way.  Every year I make photo gifts for my family, and they are always so well-received!

I’ve created photo books at many of the leading photo sites (usually I go with whoever has a promotion at the time I’m wanting one) but usually I end up going with a fill-in-the-photo-blank type book.  My latest photo album came from Mixbook.com and was completely different, being something I customized myself from the background color to the clipart and word art within.  It was a total blast to make!

Now I went with the Blank Canvas theme purposely because I wanted to do it all myself, but if you’re in a hurry you can also choose a theme, and there are many attractive designs available.

Designing your photo book is easy once you get started.  You just choose a background color, figure out how many pictures you want on each page and choose a template (or not, you’re pretty free to do what you want), drag and drop the photos, and add the clipart and captions that you want.  I was impressed with the simplicity and enjoyed being let loose to be as creative as I wanted.  Here’s what I came up with:

 


Mixbook - Create Beautiful Photo Books and Scrapbooks!

 

I absolutely love it!

So I ordered it, and a package arrived about a week later.  I found my new photo book nicely wrapped up in plastic and ready to be viewed for the first time.  I was really excited.  :)

My expectations were completely surpassed – everything looks awesome!


It’s probably the easiest digital scrapbook I’ve ever put together.  And believe me, digital scrapbooking appeals to me.  I’m too lazy to get everything together and do any real scrapbooking.  :)
