the "before baby" bookFriday, July 03, 2015
I'm NOT SURE HOW I forgot to post about this thing. But I found it in my drafts folder today, soooo, better late than never. Right?
Long story short, I was pretty excited about having a baby. So excited that during those 9 months, I took (practically) every single Baby Pribs related picture and made a book with them all. 53 pages.
I know there are different options out there for making photo books (Blurb, Shutterfly, etc), but I wanted something more organic and handmade, therefore I pieced together each page myself in Photoshop Elements (each page is 6"x8") and had a local professional printer do the printing and cropping for me. I know some people would go crazy if they had to manually make and save each page, rather than upload photos and order their book, but I could spend all day in photoshop (although in reality I spend like 1-2 hours a day, if I'm lucky), so this didn't feel like much for me at the time.
Before ordering the prints, I had already found a mini three ring binder at Target. The binder measures about 7"x9" (ish). This determined the size of the pages.
