I wanted to share with you guys the photo album I made on Mixbook. When I first found out I was pregnant I really wanted to put together a photo album of every year of her life. I absolutely love the idea of scrapbooking, but frankly I've never been able to get into it, because it takes a lot of time, a lot of space, and a lot of money to get all those little pieces together. I did some research and found a website where you could really personalize your photo albums. You could either design your own or they have decorative templates already made. I fell in love with the idea and got started right away. I started the working on the album in May and finished it in January. It was a little hard getting everything organized and choosing my favorite photos from the year, but it came out amazing.
PS: I really need to get a photo shopping program I hate how my blog photos are turning out.
|I love the back cover, I decided to take my fondest memories from the year and list them out on the back of the album. I plan on doing this for every year on each album I make.|
|Here's an example of pages I designed myself along with the one below.|
|This one came predesigned. I am so impressed with how well the photo turned out.|
|This one and the one below are also examples of ones that came predesigned.|
I have a ton of pages in my album and the total came out to be $65. To me I thought this was a great deal, because I know I would have spent at least that if I had done the whole scrapbooking shebang. Sometimes mixbook offers really good deals on these photobooks like a much smaller version for only $10. I plan on doing one of these for every year, I've already started my album for 2013!
