Celebrate December in a photo book

Posted By Katie Pertiet On December 18, 2009 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 4 Comments

There is so much going on in December that it’s a challenge to capture all of the month’s memories. I look through my albums with all the Christmas stories I’ve told for my daughters and granddaughters, but there is so much left untold.

This year when we were hanging the ornaments, Kelly kept asking me where each ornament was from and I realized that some of the memories were already fading. I knew then that I needed to put a book together featuring some of our favorite ornaments and the stories behind them.

The result was The Story of the Ornaments [1].

I used Adobe Photoshop image editing software along with digital scrapbooking products from DesignerDigitals.com including the December Memories Quick Pages [2] which is so easy to use. All the elements, photo frames and knickknacks are already in position and all you need to do is drop in your photo—simple as that!

The best part is that I can continue to photograph more of our ornaments, adding their stories and grow the book over the years! I look forward to that!

There are so many other ways to tell the story of the excitement of December.

Many people photograph and journal about each day leading up to Christmas and after. This amazing photo book [3] by Myra is a wonderful approach to that concept.

Just getting your December photos into a photo book can be a huge accomplishment and Sarah did a wonderful job with a general December photo book [4] about her family’s memories. BarbaraJ also did a great job capturing December [5]. She even included a few holiday recipes in her photo book [6].

Whatever your approach to capturing and the magic of December, the result will be a story to remember in a photo book keepsake [6].
