Giving a grandparents a photo book or calendar with pictures of their children and grandchildren is always a welcomed gift. You may remember me telling you about Mixbook a while back, and it would be a great place to put together that extra special gift for your most cherished family members. Here is what I had to say:
Mixbook is a great website that allows you to completely customize photo books, cards and calendars. You are no longer limited to the unchangeable pre-designed templates, with Mixbook's design software, you have the freedom to make it your own! Mixbook also allows you to collaborate with others to create an unique & joint project, such as a extended family scrapbook or school yearbook.
Mixbook allows you to use photos from most anywhere--facebook, flickr, your home computer, etc. --with a quick, easy, one click, upload process. Mixbook also offers thousands of creative elements for use completely free of charge--including templates, backgrounds, stickers and more. The produce your items on archival-quality products, so you can enjoy them for years to come.
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.
The photo book is only one option that Mixbook offers. Be sure to check out the Mixbook website to see everything YOU can do! Remember "Mixbook--Make It Yours!
