Photo books are not a new phenomenon to me.  I am a scrapbooker or rather perhaps I WAS a scrapbooker before blogging took over my life.  I still plan on turning many of my pictures into a traditional scrapbook, but starting in January I decided to turn the rest of my photos into digital scrapbooks.  I was excited to try Mixbook as I was not familiar with the company.  I had made photo books in the past using the big name digital photo book companies, but this would be my first with Mixbook.

The first aspect that appealed to me is the ability to create a photo book anyway I want.  Sure, I can use predesigned templates, but I can also make my own.  With some other companies it can be frustrating how “locked in” I can be with the settings.  Mixbook allowed me to place the pictures anywhere I want within the page.  I love that!  I can also layer the photos.  Notice how I did this within my own book.

Essentially with Mixbook you can put as much time and individuality into creating your photo book as you want.  If you want to quickly create a photo book, use the templates provided for an easy creation.  Or if you want to completely personalize your photo book it is possible to add as much detail and originality as you want.  Mixbook allows you, to become the creator.  This isn’t a traditional scrapbook, but with Mixbook you can make your digital photo book have as much handmade charm as any traditional method.

I did not put a lot of creativity into my book.  I would have loved to have made my book spectacular.  With Mixbook I certainly had the tools necessary to create a photo keepsake of my own complete design.  My problem?  Time.  I have about a billion things I want to do on my computer and making photo books for children is definitely on the list.   I made a photo book  for my middle child that he loves and will cherish in years to come.  It took me very little time, but I think it still looks great.  I can only imagine what would be possible if I spent a little more time creating another book.

Here are some pictures of my creation.

Pictures and text are both capable of being completely edited to your particular taste.

Here is the photo on the back of the book.
