If you’re like me, you have two main problems when it comes to your photos. One is having a huge box of print photos from the time before digital cameras, and said box is under your bed, barely ever seeing the light of day except when you feel like strolling down memory lane. Or two, all your digital photos are on your laptop, where they sit in a folder…the online equivalent to under the bed and rarely ever seeing the light of day. And yet, all I do is take more pictures!
I also have three or four gorgeous scrapbooks, that I paid a lot of money for, just sitting empty (you guessed it, under the bed), because at one point I was motivated to give all these photos their moment to shine with decorative paper and cute stickers — but I got bored approximately one page in and gave up.
Enter Snapfish photo books. At work, we recently gave our boss a photo book of silly digital photos of employees, and I was so impressed with how beautiful it turned out. So when the folks at Snapfish told us about a new 11×17 option in their arsenal, I jumped at the chance to finally take my photos out of a folder and onto paper!
In particular, I wanted to make a project for GC and I, because there is approximately one photo in our house of the two of us and it this one, which is hardly a normal photo to display (even though I love it.)
Nothing of our trip to Italy a couple years ago. None of some of the random night outs we’ve had. None of us really together at all. So now that we’re engaged, I thought no time like the present to actually be adults and put pictures of us in one place.
What I like about the Snapfish books, is that they make it very easy to put one together. After you upload all of the photos you want in your book, you simply drag and drop into the spaces in which they belong. And everything is customizable, from the color you want the book to be, to the font your captions can be written in.
For example, here are the images I selected for the cover — you can see how they lay everything out for you quite specifically:
And here’s a look at how you arrange the inside:
I’m still fiddling with how I’m arranging all my photos, but it’s an absolute breeze to do! To get started, just visit www.snapfish.com and upload your photos. Then, select Photo Books to get started!
