Tis the season…for Birthdays! Every year when March arrives I begin to panic about birthday gift ideas. It’s a very busy birthday month for me and continues through July. And every single year I draw a blank for the perfect, personalized, gift. This year will be different though, because I have an idea (thanks to the Shutterfly Photo Book Gallery).
The other day I came across some photo books in Gallery that were created to be used as journals. This is when the big idea hit me. These would be perfect for those special personalized birthday gifts! Take a look and get inspired, yourself.
The first one is by JoeyM made for her daughter. It is fabulous and she put a lot of work into making this book perfect. Simply adorable. She included pets and month to month memories and of course, all of the pictures of her daughter!
A different theme was a guest book TammyM5 made for her daughters wedding. I liked a few of the layouts that I could copy for journaling pages that include photographs.
PattyW5’s Express Yourself is another digital scrapbooked journal I thought was cute.
These journal photo books were made with design software, but don’t let that stop you! You can easily create one using Shutterfly templates. Like this.
So, next project, a personal small journal for myself and if I love it as much as I think I will, the rest of my friends will be getting one for their birthday this year! Problem solved!
