Valentine’s Day is coming up and a photo book makes a wonderful gift. It shows your love through the time and effort you put into the project, and gives the recipient a keepsake that will last forever.
This Valentine’s Day I put together a photo book for my daughter with some of our favorite moments from this past year. I started by going through my photos and selecting 10 different events, with 2 photos to highlight each – one large full page photo, and one photo for a scrapbook page. I converted all the images to black and white for a sense of continuity.
I didn’t want the book to be so heavy on journaling that she would be embarrassed to share it with her friends. You know, teenage girls can be very sensitive. So instead I used titles from The Reasons Why Layered Template Books along with the Love You Quick Pages!
If you’re not into digital scrapbooking, you can achieve a similar effect using Shutterfly’s templates. Just alternate full page bleed layouts (where the photo takes up the entire page) with backgrounds highlighting a single images. Like this. Either way, you’ll create a keepsake that your child (whether she’s six or sixteen) will cherish forever.
