I love this cover for an accordion book we did today. The muslin and quilt are simply lovely.

gift book week! idea #2, christmas memory books

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

. . . . .

With the holidays approaching, we’re celebrating our first ever Gift Book Week. We’re showcasing a different book idea each day to inspire you. We hope you’ll find the perfect gift idea here and get in touch. There’s still time to make your custom book for the holidays!
. . . . .

So here’s idea #2‚ĶChristmas Memory Books!

Growing up in our family, every Christmas we took a Santa picture and a Christmas Card picture. And let me tell you, there are some gems in there (think braces, tears, bad sweaters, etc). This year I’m compiling these into companion books as gifts for my own family. And I must admit, I’m selfishly doing it because I want to enjoy them in our own home during the holidays, too!

If you have similar traditions and a pile of Christmas or holiday memory photos lying around, here are 2 books to inspire you. The first uses Santa pictures in our accordion book style, and the second features Christmas Card photos in a custom book style, with captions next to each year which adds such a nice touch.

And of course, if you are still in the midst of these traditions be sure to save the photos so you can make a book later!

We just can’t get enough of Caroline Joy Photography’s packaging! Look at this delightful little package she sent us with a CD of images she took of an accordion book. So lovely and creative. Thanks, Caroline!

Check out images of the accordion book we did for her on her blog.

photo accordion book 

Have you seen our new photo accordion books?

I’m so excited to finally be offering these. We worked really hard to get the design and construction just right, and I love how they turned out.

They are perfect gifts for the holidays – for grandparents, in-laws, or proud dads who seriously need to update their kid’s photo collection on display at the office. Order by Monday, December 1st for Christmas delivery.

Check back later this week for some accordion book inspiration. We’ll share 5 different real-life accordion books…from old family photos to pet photographs to kid’s photographs. You’ll find lots of creative ideas for capturing your family in one of these great little books!

accordion books, at last!

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

After much noodling and a bit of paper cutter drama, I’m really pleased with how these accordion books turned out. They’ll be for sale on the site soon, and available through photographers as well (if you’re a photographer, contact me!)

Here’s an example of a baby book, with some seriously cute pictures by Teddi Yaeger.

And wedding books! So excited to finally offer a wedding book idea. We can match the ribbon and pattern to your invitations, colors, etc.

You can choose a full bleed or a white border for the images, and some images look best over 2 pages, like so…
