I was given the opportunity to put together an 11x8.5" Classic Landscape Hardcover 20 page book. Everything was pretty simple and self explanatory. I decided to put together a project that I had never been able to find the perfect theme to fit prior to this, an international adoption tale. After looking at their many, many theme options I went with "Blank Canvas". Then I moved on to upload the pictures I wanted in the book, I did it in stages, I felt less overwhelmed that way (I was narrowing down a few thousand pictures into a book with a few dozen). I worked my way through the book by date.
I liked that I could choose a template, I would choose one that fit the number of pictures and any journaling that I wanted, but I liked that I could make adjustments to where I felt I needed--several times I would adjust the picture size or drag it slightly to another spot. I also added journaling to an area where there wasn't originally any. I liked that I could go through and choose the background paper that I wanted (including to the cover), and that I had the option of adding "sticker" & such if I would have wanted to add something more. Once I was completed, I had the option to order it, which I did. It was delivered a few days later. It was just as I expected it to be. It is well put together and will most likely hold up for many years!
I was very impressed with how personalize-able Mixbook's photo albums were. I would recommend going on and playing a bit because the longer I worked with it the more I learned what all I could do with it. I am very happy with how my Mixbook turned out and my child loves having his very own storybook about him.
