Simple Celebrations : 5x7 Baby Photo Books

Youareloved


Here's a little something new I have been working on for Designer Digitals


Hellosweetbaby


Beginnings


Fingerstoes
This is
the first of a new series of small books I am developing called SIMPLE CELEBRATIONS that work with the 5x7 soft-cover photo books available at Shutterfly.


This past weekend a baby pink version, a blue version, and a brown/neutral version became available.


You can view my pink book in the Shutterfly gallery here.


Each package includes 11 .jpg simple sentiment files that are ready to upload to Shutterfly and be added to one of their 5x7 soft-cover photo books (upload just like you would your photos).

Each package also includes the word art as separate .png files and three journal blocks (see below) so you could easily add more text if you wanted (or a space for notes to be written directly into the book after it is printed).

EDITED TO CLARIFY : The journal blocks and the separate word files (.png) can be added to the sentiment pages in a photo-editing program (such a Photoshop Elements), saved as .jpg's and then uploaded to Shutterfly to add to the book/print.

PLEASE NOTE : Make sure that you turn off vivid pics before printing through Shutterfly otherwise you will get less than desirable results with the colors.


In addition, Shutterfly is currently running a promotion on photo books: End of Summer Photo Book Sale: 20% Off Photo Books. See site for more details. Offer Valid from August 08.13.09 to 09.01.09.


These books make lovely, simple gifts for grandparents, friends, and family.

    These are really cute! I've got a couple of newborn nieces to plan some books with using these themes....
    I love Shutterfly also...you reminded me I have a freebie that I need to use before the 26th!

    Those are so cute! My baby books are all done, but I love how you used the brown one for your own childhood. And thanks for the tip on the shutterfly discount. I'm sure I'll take advantage of it for our upcoming camping trip photos.

    Ali,
    Which category did you make your book from and what design? I'm wondering how I get to the pink or the blue design.
    Thanks!

    Oh my gosh, Ali, I am in love with your beautiful little books! What a great idea. Instant gratification for all of us who have tons of kid photos but little time to make something that looks really "finished" with them. I'll be ordering/making one each for my son and daughter.
    I'd love to see a Simple Celebrations book for weddings/couples...any chance you have one of those in the works, too? :)

    Love the books and have many of your designs from DesignerDigitals, i used your netural colours to make a family book using your idea from your mini album book and your family brushes. Just need to get more information from my family to finish it off. Can i ask if you make another family brushes to add nanny and poppy to the list as my children have one side of the family they call grandma and the other is nanny etc. I love using you brushes on many of my projects. Thank you for all your products and your inspiration website.

    Ali,
    Love the book!! Quick question---if I buy the blue one today....could I make one for my sister and then make another one for my son, once he is born next month?? Or would I need to buy the template again?
    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! Thanks for sharing your talents with the rest of us,
    Katie

    You only need to buy one + then you can use it multiple times for personal use (making one as a gift is personal use) :).

    I just purchased these for an album for my granddaughter. How do you upload the separate word and journal files to shutterfly to include in the book? I am not familiar with that file. I can see the words and the journal pages in My Pictures file where I downloaded from Designer Digitals but I can't upload them as they are not jpeg. Clarification, please!
