Maybe you had an amazing vacation this year – wouldn’t the pictures from your once-in-a-lifetime trip look awesome in a layflat photo book on your coffee table?
Okay, so most of us don’t have boxes filled with little envelopes of printed photos or dozens of old and yellowed photo albums documenting our lives in photos, like our parents do. But, having your precious memories sitting on your computer or cloud storage, never to be looked at again, just as bad?
Whenever I visit my mom or favourite uncle, I make it a point to digitize/scan as many old photos as I can. I then take the digital photos and create themed photo books to send my family. I sometimes do these by year, but more often I put all my and my brother’s birthday pictures into one book, so we can look back on the photos and think about how far we’ve come. With the new Layflat option, I can create gorgeous photo spreads that are uninterrupted!
Ready to make a book? I’ve made over a dozen photo books in the past – through different companies both in-person and online. I’m really pleased with how my photo books from Blurb have turned out in the past.
Here are few other posts I created about Blurb’s photo books:

At the end of the year, or to celebrate a special occasion, I love to create photo books for my friends and family. One of the things I love about Blurb’s photo book options is that I can add text, not just photos. So, if I’m creating a wedding album I can add in the couple’s vows, their favourite poems, or a personalized message to tell them how much they mean to me.
