We love sharing and remembering our favorite moments and a scrapbook is a fun and stylish way to keep those memories fresh.
Here are our top tips for creating a customized printed scrapbook:
Step 1: Think of your content
What is it that you are looking to fill your pages with? Some people love documenting a special year (for example, creating a pregnancy scrapbook is very popular), whereas others enjoy creating a travel scrapbook, filled with memories of a special trip and others make a scrapbook based on an event, such as a wedding. Once you have your inspiration, start gathering your scraps. These can include anything from photos and love notes to tickets and post-it notes!
Step 2: Decide how you want to organize your scrapbook
You can go as simple or as elaborate as you want when making a scrapbook. We suggest thinking about how you want the final project to look, and who it is for. If this is a project just to fulfil your inner creative, then you can be as scrappy as you like, if, however, this is to highlight a special occasion, then you might want a little more order. Gather everything together and make a rough plan of how you want the layout and order to look.
Step 3: Choose your size and layout
At Bags of Love, we offer customized scrapbooks in 3 sizes:
Small - 8.5" x 6.5"
Medium - 9" x 12.5"
Large - 13" x 13.5"
You can also choose to have mounts or no mounts and if you want a slip case included or not.
Step 4: Create a design for the front and back cover
Once you have chosen your size, you can then create your design for the front and back of your scrapbook. Again, think about:
With our design interface, you can add as many photos as you want to the front and back cover, or, you can scale it back and just add a single, powerful photo to best showcase your theme. You can also add text to your design, which is perfect for naming and dating your scrapbook. Have fun creating a bunch of different designs and then go for your favorite.
Step 5: Fill your scrapbook and make memories
When we have finished making your scrapbook by hand (this usually takes 2-3 working days), we will send it out to you and you can start filling it! Have fun and let us know how you get on.
Here at Bags of Love, we love each and every picture that is sent to us because they are your memories. We encourage displaying and showing pride in your photos and one way we do so is by offering quality photo albums with a cover you design. Just upload you favorite image(s) into our online design system and possibly add some text, and you are ready to order. Before you know it you'll have a gorgeous photo album that you can fill with all of those photos that you cherish so much. Make them last forever with one of our amazing Scrapbook Albums.
We make the albums in three sizes:
Small: 8.5" x 6.5" ideal for 6" x 4" photos with internal album page size 8" x 6", 60 sides
Medium: 9" x 12.5" (up to 8" x 6" photos) with internal album page size: 8.5" x 12", 60 sides
Large: 13" x 13.5" (up to 10" x 8" photos) with internal album page size 12" x 12" and 100 sides.
Reminisce about one of the most memorable days in a person's life by designing your scrapbook album as a wedding album. If you upload your favorite couples shot of you and your special someone, and add in some text, you end up with a perfectly unique and sentimental photo album that you can add all of those gorgeous wedding photos to. Not only that, but we have incorporated a spine to our scrapbooking album that allows for expansion. This means that all of those pressed flowers, confetti, menus, and trinkets you saved from that special day can be added as well.
Get those creative juices flowing with a personalized Scrapbooking Album. Start the process by designing one in our online system, and then go crazy once you receive your album. There is a classic and custom element to the traditional form of scrapbooking, being able to overlap and arrange images however you wish and adding whatever messages you like. At Bags of Love we aim to provide you with the most personalized scrapbook possible, with one you custom design. It's one-of-a-kind.
If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.
Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.
Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.
Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.
Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.
Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
The hardback cover of your personalized scrapbook is bound in Monroe Satin, which has been printed by our technicians using an up-to-date digital printing technique. This permanently bonds the fibers and the eco-friendly ink giving your outstanding print quality with no surface texture or residue. Craftsmen then use traditional bookbinding methods to fill your personalized scrapbook album with elegant, Italian ivory paper.
Everything is fully checked for quality to ensure it meets our high standards before being sent out to you.
The Monroe satin we use for the hardback covers is a woven fabric, so we recommend using images and designs with bolder detailing or larger photos to ensure a sharp finish. If you'd like to create a photo collage on the front and back, simply upload and select several photos then choose one of our ready-made montage styles or have fun arranging the photos yourself. Just like the potential of your scrapbooking ideas, what you can print to personalize the covers is limitless. The covers have metal corner protectors, however, this shouldn't infringe on your design.
