2012 Photo Book Done!

Completing my 2012 photo book was on the short list of things I wanted to accomplish before my maternity leave ends this week. Hooray for getting it done.
Once again I'm using Blurb mostly because I'm used to them by now and have three other books to go with.  Aside from one company I didn't like the quality of, I haven't used any of their competitors so I'm not sure if this is the best option but it's good enough (I still think they should have better cover options but oh well).   Want to see more?  Check out Away We Go 2009 (and what I thought about it here), Away We Go 2010 and Away We Go 2011.


For obvious reasons, the format of this one was a little different than our prior travel only books.  Instead of "Away we Go", its "We Become Three"  - which Mr. Limestone thought was too corny but I forged ahead with anyway.  Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age?

I also started adding a few instagram shots to create context for each month.  Even if they aren't perfect shots, they remind me of a little things that were happening during that time.

Based on the sheer quantity of Agatha photos I've taken this year so far, I'm sure the 2013 book will very different again.

  3. So I think my resolution next year should be: Travel as much as Stephanie because even when she was pregnant she traveled more than you have in the last decade....

    Wanderlust. I've got it. :)

  4. I love your yearly books and living vicariously through your travels! Your recommendation of Blurb is what led me to use them when I created my vacation book last summer. Their quality is hard to match!

  6. This is so amazing. I actually completed my first Blurb book as well for 2012 and am in love with it.

    If you don't mind me asking. How did you include the above flip book? As it is wonderful, and I would love to show my work on my blog as well.

  9. Aw, I love it, I love it, I love it! We use Blurb for all of our photo books too - after a handful of books, it's like you said: I'm familiar with their format, and they're good enough! They're awesome books for their price point.

  12. Your book is stunning................ I used Blurb for my Week in the Life Book (aka Ali Edwards scrapbooking project)

    There are two methods of loading books in which method do you use. I haven't used it for a year and I basically did my pages in photoshop and saved them as a jpeg then brought those in like that.

    Which book design, pages etc. have you used. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane Australia (kathyaylward1@gmail.com)
