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:
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!
