Celebrate Everyday Life with Shutterfly

Shutterflyphotobook1



One of the big projects I have been working on over the last few months (and am really excited about)  is the creation of a Celebrate Everyday Life photo book for Shutterfly.


This hard-bound book is available in 12x12 and 8x8 formats (minimum of 20 pages but you can add up to 80) and are set up for you to simply drag and drop your photos right into the book & type your text into specified areas. The design is super clean with plenty of white space to keep the emphasis on the photos + words.



Page topics within the photo book include everyday celebrations, observations, distractions, travel, play, work, routines, family, home, beauty, little things, etc. All those parts of our life worth documenting.



In addition to creating the photo book I wrote four short articles related to putting this book together (and scrapbooking everyday life in general). Here's a link to each:


Making A Successful Everyday Life Book
Journaling Your Everyday Life
8 Techniques for Choosing or Taking Photos
List of Everyday Photos

    SUPER cool! I love it!
    Right now I take all my "daily somthings" that I post on flickr and I print them on a color printer onto full sheet "stickers" and I then post them all in a moleskin journal- with other notes and random thoughts- but I LOVE this idea too! I will have to check it out!
    Great Idea Ali!

    Well, this is incredible. I have been struggling with creating my own shutterfly book and this is SO perfect for what I wanted to do. Your list of everyday photos is amazing, too. Am definitely putting that to use this weekend.
    Thank you!!

    Amazing. You have a magic touch. I can't wait to give it a try.
    I like Lauren Z's idea above, turning her daily photos into stickers for her Moleskine journal.
    Congrats!

    OMGOODNESS!! What an awesome idea & opportunity!!! I had Shutterfly print 10 identical 5x7 photo books for the Grandparents, etc. this past Christmas (of my childrens' Santa photo sittings - which were beyond incredible). I would have LOVED to have an AE-designed book to plug those into! ROCK ON WIT' YO' BAD SELF, ALI EDWARDS!

    I was just going to work on a shutterfly album this morning and uploaded more photos. How handy! I love the look of this album too. Hopefully it looks as good with my photos in it! :)

    This is so awesome, Ali!! I created a photo book for grandparents for Christmas this year and although they were fine...they could really use some help with their layout options!!
