Simple Celebrations : 5×7 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 5×7 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 5×7 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.

    Ali,
    Love this concept. I am making one for my little boy, and maybe my new nephew. I converted the png. files in iPhoto, and they uploaded to shutterfly just fine, except how do I add my information in the about page? I am kind of new at this digital stuff, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Love your work. Also love Canon Beach!! Planning to purchase your Everyday Life book from SHutterfly as well.

    An allergy is a type of immune reaction. Normally, the immune system responds to foreign microorganisms or particles by producing specific proteins called anti-bodies.

    Like the 5×7 format. Little things for little tots.

    hi ali, i am so in love with the handwritten font you used the words like ‘hello sweet baby’ and ‘love you’ – is that a font or you used a tablet to create them? i’ve been trying to achieve this look and feel but nothing i made look as good as those!
