Mini Photo Books

If you are looking for a quick, but thoughtful way to show someone you care, check out these mini photo books. The idea is from a customer who was giving these out as Christmas gifts. She told me that she goes to Rite-Aid, prints the photo index card, and puts the tiny photos in the book necklaces. These photos (shown in the photo with the quarter) are really small. I'm creating a book necklace one size larger to accommodate the photos that are 1.25 x 2 inches (they cost .39 for 9 at Rite-Aid). You can find the small book necklaces here . The larger ones will be available online next week. If you'd like one before then, let me know.

The smallest photos are from the photo index card that you have the option of getting at the end of choosing your prints.  I used photo squares to adhere the photos to the page.  You can use any scrapbook adhesive as long as its acid-free.

Personalized Scrapbook for Photos, notes, drawings...

I created this scrapbook for a long-time friend who is living in Kansas for a bit. She wants to make her son a scrapbook with photos, notes from school, drawings, etc. They will all fit nicely in here. His name is on the front within the state of Kansas...and just for fun, the dot of the "i" is about where they live. I'm excited to see it once she has it all put together!

Elongated Photo Albums with Handmade Paper

Photo albums are priceless family heirlooms, and, while many photos are kept digitally now, it is nice to keep that hand-picked selection collected in a way that can be easily enjoyed. You can add your photographs to these with photo corners or acid-free adhesives. The leather is carefully bound so that the pages expand with the addition of your photos. This ensures that the photo album's shape stays in tact and does not get bulky. It closes securely with a leather strap and handcrafted wooden piece or bead. These photo albums are truly one-of-a-kind and would make a beautiful family heirloom.

Old Photo Sketchbooks

Have old photos that you want to do something creative with?  One lady had me take her old family photos and turn them into several sketchbooks/photo albums for her.
