I got home from Hawaii this weekend and I had a package waiting for me. I was anxious to see how my latest creation turned out. I am happy to announce that I’m Over the Moon about my latest photo book! I love to make photo books for my family and friends. I have books for special vacations, holidays, and family yearbooks. I have used several companies in the past to create my books. I really like Shutterfly and Mixbook. But I have a new favorite… Blurb! I came across Blurb on Pinterest while looking for something else and I am so glad I did.
My 2013 Family Yearbook just came in and I am pleased as punch. My family says it is the best one I have ever made because the quality is superb! I enjoyed creating the photo book on Blurb because they have software you can load to your computer and you don’t need the Internet to run the software. That was so nice because I didn’t get bogged down uploading pictures. When I was finished it took just a few minutes to upload the finished book to their site and place my order. The production and delivery services were fast. I had my book within a week. Needless to say, I am already at work on several other photo book projects because I am so thrilled with the result.
Couple of notes about my family yearbooks or memory books I put together each year:
- I like to put my book together from January to December.
- I use very little text and concentrate on using really meaningful pictures that tell our story for the year.
- During the year, I put my pictures in folders based on the months of the year and big events, this makes it easier to find pictures when I get ready to work on my book. However, it still takes a long time to select the right images.
- I select my pictures and save them into a folder just for the book. I create subfolders within that folder of pictures for each season of the year so it is easier to put pages together in order.
