Memorial Day 2015—Drawing #1
Win a FREE 12 x 12 Photo Book
by Linda Sattgast
AdoramaPix.com is a company that prints, among other things, photos, scrapbook pages, and entire photo albums. Since we know that many of you are interested in learning about various printing options, we agreed to try them out and write a review of our experience. Jen White, Susie Roberts, and Linda Sattgast each had something printed with AdoramaPix. In full disclosure, AdoramaPix provided the product free for us in exchange for an honest review.
Review by Linda Sattgast
AdoramaPix printed a 62 page scrapbook album for me. Here are my thoughts:
Ease of Website Use: Excellent (once I figured out the ropes). I initially chose the “Blank–Build Your Own Book” option, which wasn’t easy to use for pre-made digital pages. However, once I discovered the “Pre-Constructed (Pages)” template in their pre-made design options, I quickly zipped through creating my book. I contacted Customer Service a few times during this process, and they were always courteous and quick to help. They gave me a link to a web page where I could download PSD cover templates, which was very helpful.
How The Book Turned Out
The book came beautifully packaged. I ordered a keepsake box in addition to the book, and that made a very elegant presentation.
The ribbon is elastic (easy to get on and off) and it looks so cute!
Since presentation is often a big part of the initial impression of a gift, I appreciated the obvious care that AdoramaPix put into its packaging.
AdoramaPix prides itself, and rightly so, on its style of binding that allows your pages to lie flat. Since I knew this was the case, I redid six spreads to remove the work-arounds I had made for non-flat printed books. Notice how the alphabet ribbon doesn’t get swallowed by the gutter (the center of the book that goes into the binding).
I loved the flat binding. Here’s another example of elements that look great, even though they’re crossing the gutter.
The book is thicker than books I’ve purchased elsewhere. This is due to the extra sturdy pages. It’s hard to describe, but the pages almost feel silky when you touch them.
I gave the book to my mother. It’s the story of her life from birth to just before she met my father. My father is gone now, but I’m so grateful that my mother, at 87, is still able to tell me family heritage stories. (By the way, she LOVED the book!)
My Impressions of AdoramaPix.com
I’m extremely happy with the quality of my book and would recommend AdoramaPix without hesitation. The photo quality is the best I’ve ever seen (these pictures don’t do them justice), and I love the flat binding!
The only thing less than perfect was a slightly off center cover, since I didn’t understand how to position it, but it wasn’t enough of a problem to make me want to reprint the book.
The price point at AdoramaPix is a little spendier than I’m used to, but for the right photo books, it might be worth the extra cost. A wedding book, graduation book, or family history album comes to mind.
The flat pages are also perfect for panorama photos, which I take frequently using the pano feature of my iPhone. I can just see the photos of my time in the desert (think sunsets and sweeping mountaintop vistas) on double page spreads with no gutter!
AdoramaPix says their mission is “to provide high quality products and excellent service at an affordable price.” They also say they want to exceed customer expectations. In my experience, they did just that.
HOW TO ENTER TO WIN: (EXPIRED)
If you could create a photo book about ONE topic, what would it be?
For example: I now want to create a book about my father—how he and my mother met, their courtship, marriage, and early life together.
The winner will be notified by AdoramaPix.com and will be listed in the DSNews.
And, the winner is: KATIE ARTZ

I took my kids on a trip through 11 states last summer and I would love to create a book about that trip for each of my kids to enjoy.
I would redo an album of my life. I did one (my first ever) in Linda’s class. I did not get the type right on some of the pages and they came out poorly. It was a learning experience! I would like to develop the story more and correct my errors.
I would like to make a book of my children when they were growing up. One for me. I have done a book for each of them, but this would be a keepsake for the family. Thank you for the review and a chance to win
I would like to print a book about all the cakes I’ve made over the years. I made all the birthday cakes in the family (my children, all my nieces and nephews, my siblings, my parents). I also made their wedding cakes when they got marred. And I made cakes for the church when they were having something special going on. For instance, for one themed party I made a 22″x32″ sheet cake with a donkey and cactus on it.
I’ve had 4 books printed in the past.
I would love to do a vacation book. We have been on several cruise this year. Lots of pages done to print!
My next photobook will be of my children. I’ve done each of their weddings and they both have expressed interest in a book of pictures from their childhood years.
I would make an album of our trip to China. Our future daughter-in-law lives there and she is going to guide us, together with her mum. We speak english but her mum does not. So it will be very exciting to get to know oneanother. We will go to places where tourists normaliter don’t come.
I would do an album of my husband of 50 years who is battling cancer.
I would make a book of photos of many of my special mementos, jewelry, etc. with explanations of who gave them to me and why they are important. I think my girls would love to have this someday.
I would love to do a book with my moms old family pictures.
I would do a book about my husband and the interesting life we have led since marriage,

Mary Ann Kiger
I would create a photobook about my daughter and her journey in life before her 4 kids. I have never created one before and it would be fun to give to her for her 37th birthday coming up this year as well as give the grand kids an opportunity to see “mom” at their ages.
I would make a book of my wedding which will be 18 yrs ago on June 6th! Thanks for the chance to win.

Thanks for the chance!
I would make a photo book of our family tree, explaining with photos and writing the relationships in our family.
My Dad passed away last year ago from Alzheimers, I have all the pieces for a book about his service. At first I was not able to ‘get at it’ still a little raw, but lately I have been planning it out. This would be a great push to get it done.
I would love to make a book for my son and his family. They are a family who have cell phone pictures and Facebook pictures but no pictures in hand or books of the story of their family. He and his wife have 4 children from newborn to 9 year old and they each have their own story that should be told in a memory picture book.
I would like to make a book of the vacations my son & I took as he was growing up.
This would be a gift for his 25th year!!!
My daughter’s wedding. Right after they wed, they moved to GA. The pictures were given to her on a CD unlike back when I got married and all the pictures were presented to me in an album. The pictures are so beautiful, capturing her joy like no other picture ever taken of her. We miss each other terribly. And since she is working to put her husband through school she doesn’t have the time to make one herself.
It’s so hard to choose, but if I had to create a book today, it would be for my daughter that is graduating high school; it would be a book about her from birth until now.
I would create a family Heritage album for my children and grandchildren.
I would create a book of the places I’ve visited here in Colorado using the techniques I’ve learned in Linda’s classes.
My husband has written his memoirs and I would like to record them and his early photographs in a keepsake.

I would create a book about the fabulous gift my sister gave me 40 years ago. She gave me one of her kidneys. I celebrated 40 years of a working transplant in February. I would like the book to be about the feelings of such a gift. I have raised two children, and now have five awesome grandchildren. My sister, who did not have children at the time, has had 2 and has three beautiful grandchildren.
Thanks for the opportunity,
I have two topics that I have in mind. One is “this is Where it all Began”. The legacy of my family and “This is Why I Love the Flinthills”

I would create a book about my son’s wedding
I’ve traveled with my aunt over many years – we’ve visited almost every continent and have many great memories and photos. Her health may not allow her to travel any more. I’d love to make her a ‘best of our travels’ photo book.
I think I would do one about my late mother… sort of a remembrance book.
I would create a book about my grandchildren
I would do a book as a “senior gift” capturing all the sights and sounds of my son’s 4 years in high school marching band.
Creating a “Grands” memory book of our four grandchildren. We do not live near them and capturing those special moments in their lives helps us celebrate those moments with them.

I would create a book for my parents’ 50th anniversary using their slides that I recently had digitized.
I would do a book about the first few years of my marriage, being a young wife, mother and air force alert widow.
I am expecting my first grandchild in August. I have an idea of a book for him all about his parents. It would be colorful with simple text with photos of his mother and father (my son) from birth through wedding. I think it will be come a treasure to him as he grows.
My 10 year anniversary is this fall. Would love to document our marriage til now.
Thank you for the coupon, looking forward to using that and to trying out AdoramaPix! I would create a book of our cruise that we took to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
I would love to do a book about our family cruise to Alaska!
I would do an album of my mom and dad’s travel pictures of the US.
I would finish and print my heritage album.
I would create a book dedicated to my husband building his woodworking shop that had been in the plans for years – he was finally able to realize his dream.
I would print my daughter a book of her building and purchasing her first house!!
So many ideas. I have been restoring heritage type images for years and have several of my own that are damaged when I received them. I would love to create a book that contains these images of my ancestors that can be passed on to my children.
I would do an album of my dad. 95 years and still going strong. That is a lot of photos.
A photo book with my children’s pre school days is long overdue.
I have tried several different companies and have completed five photo books so far, with several more planned. I have gone to girl’s camp every summer for 11 years and I am currently working on a photo book of the last 11 years to take with me this summer. I would love to compare your book-making product with the ones I am familiar with. …And maybe you would have another customer!
I bought the “About Me” class for my mother for Christmas a couple years ago and I’ve been helping her create a scrapbook about her and my father ever since. It’s almost ready and I would love to get it printed for her!
I want to make a album of pictures from my parents collection, to give to my siblings, so that we all have memories of our lives growing up. By the way, I use Adorama Pix for all my books. I find it easy to make them by dragging my premade page from photoshop onto the blank page template and choose fill the page, boom…page done. If you make double pages its even faster.
I’m embarrassed to say I never made a “Baby Book” for my daughter (who will be 56 in December). I would FINALLY do that for her.
I have been planning a scrapbook about our dog, Penny. We are in our 70’s and she is pretty close to being our baby. But with this nice offer, I would probably finish a book about a vacation we enjoyed.
Thanks for this opportunity. I would create an album dedicated to my mother/ my children’s grandmother and the loving impact she made on their lives as they were growing up. She is no longer with us, but her legacy lives on. The photo album will help them keep that memory alive and see how the many little things she did with each of them have made a difference in their lives – as children, and as young adults who will become parents themselves in the next few years.
We lost our 9 year old Great Granddaughter, Dakota, in 2013 from a prolonged illness. We would like to showcase her “bright” life always wearing a “forever smile” while she was in our lives.
Our oldest grandson turned 16 in March and we wanted to do something special for him. So, we took him on a combined Walt Disney World vacation and Disney Dream cruise during spring break. It was fantastic! Now we have over 1400 photos to reduce to a “manageable” number to put in a keepsake book of this wonderful celebration.
By the way, how does this product compare with those from Blurb which is where we have our books produced?
I would love to make a big book like this for my son, who is 30. It would be great to have a few pages dedicated to pictures of his ancestors and then proceed to his life. I do lots of printing on my reliable Epson Artisan, but I would appreciate having the book and avoiding the hassle of printing such a large project myself! I have subscribed to DS for many, many years. I enjoy all the videos and goodies provided. I have purchased photo paper from Adorama back in the film days, I loved the quality. I would be thrilled to have then issue my book.
I would make a scrapbook of my granddaughters school years from kindergarten to grade 9. She is growing up so fast, I would love to scrapbook her story for her.
I would make a book about my brother in law who passed away last year. I have been organizing his photographs, he was a professional photographer and documented his travels with photographs. I will be making a photobook of his life for his brothers and sisters
I would do an album of a trip to Yellowstone and Glacier with my husband last year.
I want to work on an album of my childhood memories, especially those that relate to my mother since we lost her long before we should have.
Karen M in FL

I would create a book of all the National Parks we have visited.
I would create an album showing the life journey of our Son, who passed away last Summer. Thanks!
I would create a photobook about my daughter-in-law’s mother who died 3 weeks ago. My daughter-in-law is 6 months pregnant with their first child. I would create a book that she could share with my grandson so that he would get to know this amazing woman who loved him so much.
Me, I would do about me, I did the 365 project for several years and the pictures really revealed a lot about myself I was not aware of, a photo really is worth a 1,000 words.
There is so much I want to share with my children, my thought process in over coming struggles and then realizing it wasn’t much of a struggle to begin with, the simple joys of capturing the light, shadows and darkness in pictures as well as life.
I would do an album of the most moving moments of my grandchildren’s lives….not always a special occasion, but those things I never want to be lost nor forgotten by them.
An Album for my daughter.
I would do a book with pictures of my children when they were small.
I would love to make a book of my family. I have taken so many photos and would love to compile them in a book. I was the caretaker of my parents before they passed and realize how important it is to document the little things They are so important to pass to the next generations….
My husband and I have traveled all over the world. We are not wealthy and have done without lots of things to be able to afford trips. We just walked on our 7th continent, Antarctica, in February. I would like to make a book that highlights the best of the best places we have been to preserve those pictures for our grandchildren. Thanks for the opportunity!!
I would like to make a book for my daughter who is about to graduate from college!
My hubby and I just spent time in Southern Utah at National and State Parks. I have some awesome photos to docment!The lay flat pages would look great with some of the landscape photos.
Thanks for the chance to win a book.
I’ve been working towards a book of all my travel to see soccer the world over. Some of my early photos are pitiful but with Linda’s classes on photo improvements I’ve made some strides and I’m getting close. To publish my book would be a dream!!
I would love to make a book about grandson and his first year of life
I would like to do an album of my daughter’s life.
I have been wanting to work on a heritage album. This would be perfect!
I would love to make an album of our family for our two grown children.
My father is 89 years old and served in the army and was wounded in WWII. He also served our country in the Korean and Viet Nam War. An album reflecting his life, faith and service would be an honor to him.
I would like to make an album for our family friends, who just celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. A very memorable event in their lives, I hope I can give justice to it.
Thanks for the chance.
I have so many ideas for books and I’m not 100% sure which way I would go. Possibly a book of recipes and pictures of my mother with her grands and great grands and make sure each of her children and grandchildren get a copy at Christmas from her. She’s always trying to find the perfect gift for everyone and that would be it. BTW, I have used Adorama in the past and loved the book I made of my mother’s 90th birthday party. The quality was excellent and everyone comments on how nice it is. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
I would like to do a photo album of my life to hand down to my children.
I would like to make one of my daughter. She is 41 & I would like to make it of her life.

I would make a book for my grandmother’s lifetime or a trip to Savannah that my husband and I took several years back.
I was reading what everyone would use their book for. I would give mine to Betty C. Her story touched me.
I am making an alphabet book for my grandson with a member of the family representing each letter. So much fun!!
I did an album of my parents, from birth through their wedding. I had the pages printed and put in an album (plastic sleeve type album). I would love to have it printed “properly”!
I would do a book about my beloved adopted daughter who died at age 11. I saved everything she ever Drew and wrote and would put it all together with all of the photos so I can look at it and remember all the wonderful times we had with her before she passed away.
I would love to create a book of my parents lives
I would make an album entitled, “Things My Mother Taught Me”
I’ve been working with my mom and her two sisters to put together a heritage album for them. They have already lost several of their siblings and when my mom passes all that family history will be lost so getting a book will be very special for all of us.
love to ,,,but so many pics where do i start
I have been very impressed with Linda’s book and her comments about the quality. I would love to do a book showing my children’s heritage — my family and my husband’s family. I have numerous photos and would like to show our grandparents, parents, and us so that they and their children would know about their “roots”.
I would love to do an album of my parents and my wedding.
just not sure where to start…
I have been journaling and photographing my granddaughter during her pregnancy. I am currently creating scrap pages to put into a photo scrap book for her. I want to be able to give her this as a gift so that she will have this memory forever. Her baby is due in 19 days; after this book, I will make her a scrap book with photographs of the day her baby girl was born.
thank you for this opportunity to win this wonderful prize.
I would love to recreate my grandma’s scrapbook that is crumbling and falling apart.
I have been spending all my scrapbooking energy on our grandkids. I’ll bet our three daughters wouldn’t mind having their childhoods documented. So, this is what I would use this scrapbook for.
I lost my mother when she was only 64 and I would love to create a book about her story to pass down to her grandchildren – many of whom hardly remember her. Her one regret when she was dying was that she would not be able to see them grow up. At least, in this way, she would not be forgotten.
I would do a travel album about our trip to France with our grandchildren.
If I could create a photo book about ONE topic, it would be about my husbands time in the US Navy. This month (May 2015) we were invited to a ceremony in Mayport, FL for the decommissioning of his navy ship, the USS Taylor-FFG50. He was one of the original “plank owners” who launched 30 years ago, back in 1985. It was a very touching ceremony and a book would be a great keepsake to hand down to our daughter about her father.
I would love to take all of the photos taken at our wedding by our guests and create an album with them, That way I can tell the stories, too, since the album from the photographer is just photos.
St. Louis celebrated the 250th anniversary of its founding last year, and part of the celebration was the Cakeway to the West, 250+ four foot tall fiberglass birthday cakes decorated by artists placed at historical, cultural, educational, etc. locations throughout the area (and beyond). My husband and I went out a day or two a week for about 8 months in search of cakes, seeing neighborhoods I’ve driven through all my life but never paid attention to, learning things I never knew (there was a Revolutionary War battle here!), and visiting some places I’ve never been. Tremendous fun, and I have over 4000 pictures of the cakes and surrounding areas. I’d love to do an album on this, and winning would encourage me to “get ‘er done!”
I would love to do a book about our trip to Ireland. The country is so beautiful, it is easy to take good photos! I think they would look great in a book and it would be a special reminder of a wonderful trip.
This looks wonderful! I especially like the way the books lie flat. I have bookmarked the Adorama website for my scrapbook projects.
I would honestly like to do a scrapbook about myself. I am the family genealogist and have 50 years of research on everyone in the family – more than 22,000 people – but I have never recorded stories and photos of who I am and what my life has been like. Thus, I have all this genealogy, but no real explanation of the person is who put it all together (me) for future generations to read. It is a scrapbooking project I have had in the back of my mind for years!
My husband and I are traveling the road of dementia due to Alzheimer’s Disease. I would use this beautiful book to commemorate our 49 years of marriage. A bittersweet task it would be.
The book is indeed a beautiful one!
Great looking book! I have so many ideas! But would begin with a tribute to my mother.
I have been working with pictures from my grandparents early days. I would love to get a book of them done soon. I did my wedding book through Adorama and I love the quality.
I am the oldest member of our family left and I would like to capture what I know of our family in the pictures I have gathered to leave for my only child, who is very interested in this project.
I also would like to do a book for my daughter from birth to the birth of her 2 children.
I’ve always wanted to create a photo book of our Wedding day (1992) but haven’t wrapped myself around that project yet. Knowing I have a book waiting to be made just might be the ticket to inspire me to get ‘er done! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win and your honest critique!
I would like to put together a book of “Time in Passing”.. I have photos of decaying buildings that are falling down but are still determined to make a presence in our landscapes. It would make a nice coffee table book of our surroundings here in the Southwest.
If I could create a photo book about just one topic, it would be a presentation of my 52-week photo project I fulfilled last year.
I have had books published elsewhere and would love to try AdoramaPix. Your books look wonderful. I want to do a book of my photos of the year.
I want to recreate my parents life. My Dad passed away 4 years ago and my Mom just celebrated her 86th birthday. They were married for 57 years, a war time romance, married in Japan. Not your typical romance. Together they celebrated, 6 children, 14 grandkids and 13 great grand kids. I would love to capture my Dad’s military career, my Mom’s Japanese heritage and the evolution of their life together.
I was really excited when I saw this. I took Linda’s class, “Your Story. Brilliant” a few years ago. It was an amazing experience as I spent many hours scrapbooking my life story. Six months ago I started struggling with some major health issues. Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed with Cancer. After undergoing surgery, I am presently in chemotherapy for the next 6 months. It will be an ongoing battle for the next few years, one that will require a lot of endurance. Unfortunately, my physicians say that statistically, my prospects may be limited but I will not give up hope. I am very grateful that I was able to complete the major portion of my life story a few years ago when I still had energy to do so. I would love to finish the last few pages of my story and have it printed for my family. Thank you.
Probably my daughter and grandson’s trip to Normandy France for the D-day celebration in 2014.
My choice would be to do an heritage album about my Grandmother. She had such a full life, I might have to split it into two volumes! It would be fun.
I would love to create a book for my husband for our 40th Anniversary, documenting our years together and our children & grandchildren.
I would love to do a book with all of my dad’s pictures, childhood and when he was in the service.
Thanks for the chance!
If I could do a photo book right now I would do one compiling my 3 cats photos
So many topics to use for the book. Maybe my grandkids (again) or maybe the trip to Oregon that I am on right now. Would love to try out AdoramaPix. (sorry if this is a duplicate as I thought I had sent it, but it doesn’t seem to show up).
These flat albums look great and would be perfect for my photo a day project. It would be about me capturing my everyday life.
I would do an album of my daughters equestrian endeavors over the past 5 years.
I would like to create a book of my twin daughters representing USA and competing at the World Junior Curling Championships in Estonia in March 2015.
So many topics to print. Maybe my grandkids, or maybe the trip to the coast that I am on right now. Would love to try out AdoramaPix. Thanks.
I would make a book about my sister and me, two orphans from Seoul, Korea back in the 1960’s, and our blessed journey to be adopted by our loving family in the United States. Our parents are deceased now, so I would like to memorialize this part of our lives in a permanent form.
I would make a book about my 3 children from birth to marriage. I took lots of pictures, most of which are in boxes or as slides. It would be nice to have these pictures easily accessible and give each child a book. Then I would continue the project and create a book for each of them of their own families.
My wife and I want to create a whole series of family albums for the whole family to enjoy…It is a huge undertaking but will be so rewarding and something we will always treasure. So I guess I’d say I’d start with the first in the series!
I’ve been taking photos of my daily walks since last summer, planning to make an album with the best ones. So this would be excellent timing because I’m getting started on making the pages for that now.
Thank you for the chance to win an album!
I would make a book of my daughter’s Senior Year of High School. It has been a very exciting year with lots of work, fun, and big decisions as she plans and prepares for the next chapter in her life.
A heritage album from the box of pictures my parents have left.
Oh this is easy, I would create a book of my heritage – My grandparents have all passed and I only have an uncle and aunt left on my mom’s side there were 9 brothers and sisters. And I have no family left on my dad’s side and that was 6 brothers and sisters. A book for my children to see where they came from – the strong bodies, deep pensive eyes and gorgeous hair styles along with automobiles and homes. A book that would showcase both sides of my family what a treasure this book would be. Life is too fast – a time to look at a picture book filled with family, life and love.
I would make a book for each of my boys with their childhood
I would make a book about my family heritage. My father is gone and my mother doesn’t remember the past. I’m a senior and would like to do it before even I forget the things I know about my heritage.
I want to focus on the person behind the camera–who took this shot and why in our family history. For years I was the one behind the camera and my daughter had to do a school project with photos of her family and ended up drawing a picture of me. She said, “It looks like I don’t have a mother!” I realize my mistake now, and often the same mistake of family photos in our family history. Who wasn’t in the picture? Were they the photographer? It is a mystery to be solved with every photograph and it adds depth to the meaning of each.
I would do an album about my marriage. My husband first ask if I would go with him when he left; he was looking for a new job. I had no clue what corporate life was liking having lived in the same house since I was in first grade. We moved every two to four years to some lovely small towns and big cities. It has been an interesting life.
I would love to print my family tree album
I would create a cookbook of family recipes that have been passed to me complete with family pictures and notes. I have some recipes written in my great-grandmother’s hand and I would scan them as pictures and include type written recipes for clarity. I would pass this book (make several copies) on to my sons and daughters-in-law. Hopefully it could be passed on to my grandchildren. I would then check this project off my “bucket list”! Thanks for this opportunity to win.
I’ve always wanted to do a Book of Me for my two adult children. I want my grandkids, great grandkids, great great, etc to know who I am and what I’m about. As I look at older photos of my family I have questions about their personalities and life choices. As I’ve learned from scrapbooking, it’s all about the stories and I want to make sure my kids know those stories before it’s too late.
I would love to create a baby book for my grandson who lost his mom at an early age.
It’s cliche, but who else COULD it be about, except my one and only grandchild, a girl, Serafina, who will be two in September!
I would love a book like your mother’s but I will have to make it for myself to pass on to my interested little granddaughters. I am the only scrapper so far in the family, but the little girls are very interested. My book would be for them. At age 77, I feel the need for my life to be recorded somewhere.
I would like to make a book showcasing all of the pages I have created on my grandkids.

I would do it about my kids and how they are growing so fast
So many books still left to scrap (my 3 kids, vacations, everyday life), but I’m thinking that it’s about time to get my own wedding photos scrapped. It’s my 20 year anniversary in December and I’d love to have all my wedding photos in a nice book like this. It would be an awesome surprise for my hubby too! =)
I would love to create a book about all my mom’s sayings and what they really mean. She had all kinds of them. I would like to get them down and what they meant for my children before I get too old and forget.
A family very dear to me is dealing with the impending death of their mother/grandmother.

I took my granchildren to Disney and would love to make a scrapbook of the trip for them!
I would LOVE to do a Book of My son’s United States Marine Corp Bootcamp Graduation. It would be great to say it was for someone else, but it would be for me to revisit when I miss him. 😉
Michelle Childs McCarthy
My father passed away 3 years ago and I still miss him dearly every single day. Before he passed away we were working on digitizing and identifying all of his family negatives. He had no photos just negatives. After investing in a high quality scanner we managed to scan about 1100 negatives. I would scan them, my dad would identify them and write down what he knew about each photo; i.e. who, what, when, where, etc. I really enjoyed this time spent with dad and would now like to put these photos into a book format. I know that when looking thru the photos I remember my dad and I sitting there talking about the photos and the stories that went with them. This would be a wonderful keepsake for me of the last year of my dad’s life. I think it would also be nice to make additional books to share with my dad’s family.
Michelle—you are so blessed to have worked with your dad on scanning photos and writing down the pertinent info! Not everyone gets the chance to do that.
I would use many photos from years ago when my children were very young to create an album or two detailing their childhood and our family life.
I see the competition is stiff, understandably!
This is an easy one for me. It would be about my mom. We have not always had the easiest of relationships but are now the best of friends. As you Linda, I want to do a tribute to her and her life and our journey together. She is 85 now and I want to get her memories put into print before I no longer have her here. We made a pact to visit all 50 states and only have 5 left. I am hoping to include this information. We plan to visit the remaining 5 this year.

I would create a book about our daughter from birth to marriage.
I would like to do a photobook on my husband’s family History. The first family reunion is this summer in Ithaca NY. I think making the book would be wonderful to take to the reunion.
My mother worked until she was 81 years old and her former boss collected $2,000 so that she could travel to Finland [land of her parent’s birth] after my father died. My mom, brother, sister and I traveled there last year and found relatives on both sides of the family and my mother is now speaking with them on a regular basis. Now that she’s [finally] interested in her heritage I want to put together a book on our trip, the people that we met and a little about her heritage since we found the original farm from 500 years ago, so that she has time to review her heritage and what she has found.
I’m intrigued. If I could create a photo book, it would be a family heritage album.
I would create one about my recent pregnancy! I have all of the pictures and information gathered, but now that I have my little guy I have to find the time to make it 🙂
I would create an album of my son, Derrick, and his best friend, Janina, who met at age 8 and 9 respectively and how they started their lives and friends and ended up happily married with 3 beautiful children!
I would do an album of my annual garden tours I have experienced with the same friend for many years. The tour is put on by our local Master Gardeners and we have seen some beautiful gardens, from huge professional acreage to small cottage gardens with the gardener proudly showing us around. I don’t see my friend very often during the year but we never miss being together of this special weekend. I would make the book for her.
I would like to create a book for my son. When he was in school he was really involved in music. He is now older and I thought it would be fun for him to look back and remember those days.
My sweet husband lost his battle with cancer three years ago. I would like to commemorate our life together. It would be so very special.

Thanks for the review. Next year is our 50th anniversary and I would love to make a book of our years together. Thanks for this opportunity.
Both of my parents are gone, but I would love to make a book about them using the few pictures I have. They were born in 1902 and 1906 so this would show some of the changes a century can make.
Our theme annual parties (luau, 70’s, superhero). Yep, the annual parties would be the one I’d pick. It would include about 80 family and friends coming together and having a fun filled day of playing together ending with fireworks!
I would love to create a photo book to give to my husband’s grandmother for her 95th birthday.

I would make a book about my story – a personal legacy to leave my children.
Our precious 11-year old black Lab died on Monday, May 18, 2015 after an eight-month struggle with diabetes. We are heart-broken. I will be creating scrapbook pages of her life as a memorial. I generally create 8×8 or 8.5×11 inch pages since I do not have a large format printer. It would be nice to create a 12×12 book of her life describing all the joy and love she gave us.
I would like to do a book about my mother and the awesome woman she became. From growing up on a farm, raising three children, and becoming a successful business owner. She is still going strong at 87. She is the strongest person I know.
I would love to try out this company for printing an album. I would like my next album to be of my family’s Disney vacation in 2013. My kids have grown up 2 years since then and I want to get an album done this summer as a keepsake.
I would do the life of my furrybaby that was put to sleep last April. She was the joy of my life & traveled every where with me.
I’m expecting my first grandchild in November 2015 and I can’t wait to do a 12×12 photo album of newborn pics with fun props (knitted caps, fluffy white sheepskin, rustic barrels, etc.) and of course, family pics with my daughter and her husband.
There are so many subjects to choose from but I would make a photo book of mine and my husband’s families for my 2 daughters. This would give them all the information about both of their heritages.
I would do a book on all of the birds and butterflies I’ve taken pictures of over the years.
Thanks for the honest review.
I would love to make a book, “Fragile life”
I would love to make a book for my husband’s upcoming 50th birthday: “50 reasons I love you!” It’s not until next year, so I’ve got a little time. I think an Adorama Photopix photo book would be the perfect presentation!
I would love to do an album about my husband’s family and the roots thy have on the Isle of Man. Why did they leave? What was the journey like? (His great-great grandmother was pregnant.) What ship did they sail? Who did they leave behind?

I would make an album for my son and daughter-in-law of their wedding. They have been married almost 5 years and their photos are still on a CD 🙁 Between several moves, job changes, and a baby, my daughter-in-law has not had the time to make a book. I would love to surprise them with a wedding album!
Jane aka Selra
I have never created a book from the My Story pages I made in your course, so that is what I would do: use. or modify, the pages I have already done that tell part of the story of my own life – from birth to marriage.
I’m still working on my story from the class I took. I would really like to finish that and then do one for my hubby?
A couple of years ago I made a book about my life. I would now like to make one about my husband’s life and his family.
If I won a photobook, I would make it for my daughter who just turned 8. – I get so busy with other projects that she doesn’t have the last 6 years of her life scrapbooked yet.
I would have a book made to give to my son and daughter-in-law of their wedding pictures. They have been married almost 5 years and their pictures are still on a CD 🙁 Between several moves, job changes, and a baby, my daughter-in-law hasn’t had the time to make one. I would love to be able to surprise them with a wedding album!
On July 8th of this year it will be my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary and I plan to create a memory book for them of their life together (condensed of course, LOL).

Due to my interest in photography and literature (including poetry) I would love to create a book with pictures of my family, going back to 1895, when my grandparents got married. My mother was the fourth of five children and when she was three years old, her parents passed away, two weeks apart. We have some photos (portraits) of the grandparents and many photos of my mother’s very interesting life. The pages would have quotes from my mother and father and from some of our favourite books, poetry and maybe some from movies. I would also include some of the photos that I have taken that are pretty good, thanks to people like Linda Sattgast. I am 67 years old so I better get busy and the photo book would sure motivate me. Thank you
I want to create a family cookbook/recipe book, scrapbook-style with photos of the contributors!
I’d create an album all about my dad and all the times he’s spent with his grand-children (10) and great-grand-children (11). He suffered a major stroke last year and doesn’t get around much due to all the care required. It would be nice to give him a book with all these photos and stories around them so he could look at them every day. It’s times like this that make us realize just how quickly life can be taken away.
My topic would be my mother and her relationship with 2 daughters and her grand children.
If I won the 12×12 photo album, I would probably make a heritage album for my husband

Chris (farm wife)
I’m a fine art photographer specializing in nature, landscapes, and abstracts, with an occasional painted look thrown into the mix. I’d love to be able to showcase my work in a book like this.

That’s an easy one. I’d love to create a book about my mother’s life. She was the one in the family who documented our lives with her camera. Plus she kept all the old family photos and labeled them so we know who is who. I thank her for that and continue her tradition. She passed away in 2009 from Alzheimer’s and I miss her so much. It would be an honor to document her life.
Every year for the last 10 years, as our get away, my husband and I would take a road bike trip. It is amazing what you can see as you peddle across the country. I would make a book to chronicle those adventures and the beauty we saw for our 25th anniversary.
I would like to make a book about my 3 girls. The problem is going to be to determine exactly which photos will end up in the book!

She will turn 80 in August and this would be a gift not just to her but to my sisters as well.
I was 2 when my father died. He was a professional musician, so many photos of his band remain from the 1930’s-1950. I would like to bring his life together to share with my son,so that he might know his heritage.
I have been struggling to get a heritage book done of my parents. This would definitely give me incentive. What a great looking quality book. If I don’t win I will definitely use them in the future for a special project.
P.s. Linda do you have these. Layout posted in the gallery? They are beautiful.

I’d like to create a book for photos I take throughout the month. No theme, just a monthly book.
We just celebrated my husbands birthday, only 3 hours away in Ft. Lauderdale. We went to Butterfly World (fantastic) and on to Flamingo Gardens (really Flamingos…and more). Both my husband and I love to take pictures; we are amateur photographers in the true sense! But, sure enough we “lucked out” and captured beautiful nature! We shot a lot and as usual had to weed out the “maybes”-but, overall we have a wonderful group of photos, perfect for a book of memories!
Random pages. That’s my topic. Those pages created just because they needed to be created, either for a challenge, because of inspiring photograph or memorable event. They need to come out of the computer.

This book would illustrate our family on both sides and explain who we are!
ON July 8th of this year my parents will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. I am planning to do a book of their life (condensed of course) and present it to them on their anniversary.

Her life spanned the coming of electricity to the arrival of ipods. I can’t wait to tell the story in words and pictures.
So many topics hare to chose just one! A family tree, I think that is what I would do. From my great grandparents to my grandchildren on my side and my husbands side. I think that would be awesome!!

I want to create a book of my grand daughter Keighan’s first two years
I am the family historian for my large Italian family as you can see by checking out my website. I spend all year making scrapbooking pages for my family. At the end of the year I create individual photo books for my siblings. I include some genealogy pages (so our ancestors are not forgotten), family functions and holidays. Then I tailor them to show off individual actives or events in my siblings life throughout the year. I’d love to create a special book just for me that is all about three generations; me, my daughter, and my two year old granddaughter. Thank you.
I would make a photo book of the pages I am creating this year of my family. I have learned so much from Digital Scrapper but never put what I have learned into scrapbook pages. So this year I am scrapping all the pictures my family puts on facebook or sends to me on my phone. Each month I am adding 4 new pages to my scrapbook. I am loving it!
I must have 200 CD’s with digital photos from the last 15 years I would like to make a Photo book using those photos.
i have always wanted to make a photo book for each of my kids to give them about all their accomplishments and sports and just memories in general of their childhood
About my grandkids.
I took my son to Paris for his graduation gift from college and would love to create a book of that wonderful trip.
I have a special Grandson I would like to create a book for to give him on his 13th birthday. Becoming a teen is significant and would be wonderful to give him a book with photos of the many photos I have from birth through to his 13th birthday.
I would like to make a photo book of my family, past and present.
This looks like a beautiful way to create and share a family history keepsake. Cousins and other family members on both sides of the family are coming to me to discover their family history and stories. Over the years I’ve collected many family history documents, stories, photos and sketches which I’m excited to compile into a nice quality, beautifully bound book. I’m happy to see there is room for text with the pictures. It is important for me to combine the text with artwork and to label the historical photos. Love the flat double page layouts. The first installment will be about the contrast and choice to leave the homeland and come to America; how we settled in the frontier; and our roles in American history from 1730 to the civil war. No time like the present to share and pass this information and artwork along while my health still allows me to. Looking forward to trying this product.
I would create a book about the trip my son and I took to England and Ireland last summer. It was a wonderful time that was even better because I shared it with my son.
I have been organizing my scrapbooking supplies and pictures. I realized that I need to create a wedding album for my husband and I. We will be celebrating our 47th anniversary in June, and this would be an awesome gift to give to my best friend, lover and husband.
I would do a book about my family history. I am going to be a grandma soon for the first time and would like to give my kids a book that they can show their kids in years to come so that they can get to know family that have passed.
I want to print an album documenting my sisters annual trip to London.
I’d like to make a book of my mom’s life for her 75th birthday
I would like to create a book based on my husband’s Air Force career, from the time he enlisted to the time he retired!
I would like to create a book about my new grandchild who is arriving on August 3rd 🙂
I would make a book about the first spring break in the RV with our grandkids. That was the start of a lot of adventures to come over the years when they were on school breaks.
I want to create a book for my daughter who just graduated with her Masters in Education.
It would include her journey to getting her first job.
If I could create a photo book about ONE topic it would be a memory book for my parents who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Their dating years through the highlights of their many years together. It has been a dream of mine for many years to put my many scrapbook pages into a hardbound book. Thanks for the chance to win one. Your own special memory book looks lovely. Thanks for sharing it with us. So glad your Mom liked it!
If I were to create an album, I would create an album about myself. Not because I am narcissistic or anything, actually far from it. Recently I was flipping through many of my albums, and I realized, there were maybe a total of 10 photos of myself. I spend so much time behind the camera, I never end up scrapping about myself. I think it would be something great for my kids to have. They’re almost all grown up and it would be something I could give to them about our stories, but focusing on my thoughts and YES actually putting photos of ME in the album! Thank you for this chance!!!
I would create a photo book about my son’s life-changing 2.5-year experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Turkmenistan, Central Asia, and my husband’s and my brief visit with him, the people and places there. A place not often seen by many, Turkmenistan is now closed to the Peace Corps. I’d like to get the images in print so he has a beautiful remembrance, as well as presentation to share this unique place and experience with others.
I would like to create a book of a recent trip to France celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.
I would love make a book celebrating my art journey so that my grandchildren will know more about me and my work.
I would like to tell the story of my husband’s family who grew up in England. My father in law went to a boarding school for underprivileged children when his Dad died leaving his mother a widow with 6 children. He served in WWII for the English and later emigrated to America with his wife and 2 sons. My husband’s mom lived through the terrible air raids and spent many nights in the bomb shelter in her backyard. She loved and missed her family in England very much after moving to America and instilled in my husband a love for her family that was so far away. We visit our relatives there every few years and hear many stories about that era which I would love to document so they are not forgotten
I really want to create a book for each of my married daughters. I have been sorting out their “lives” from their left behind shoe boxes of treasures and I see that most could be scanned and scrapped. Thanks for the critique of the new printing company too. I need to find a new source for the books I’ll create!
If I had a book to create, it would be about my kids. They are the center of my life.
Our family is having a re-union. I’d create a book with those pictures! thanks so much for the chance!
I would create a Family History book for my husband for our 50th wedding anniversary in June 2016.
I would love to do a scrapbook of my grandfather’s life (he passed a few years ago)
awesome! thanks so much for the chance. My family is having a re-union and I’d create my book about the reunion!
I think I would create a book using scriptures and pictures that capture the meaning of those scriptures through nature and children.
Hi! I would love to create a book about summer vacation. Thanks for the chance!
I’d like to do one on my mom. She passed away 4 yrs ago. It would be for her grandsons.
I would love to have a book printed of my granddaughter’s life thus far. We moved so that I could babysit her, and now her brother, and I’ve been having so much fun photographing all of the big and little events. I had one book printed and was so disappointed when the pages (which were sized properly for the book) had huge white borders around them. This book looks amazing!
I would love to create a photo book containing all of my favorite pictures I’ve taken throughout the years.
If I win the Adorama book I will make a book on my daughter’s wedding. I used Adorama for the first time to make a book on her engagement. Like you, I found the process a bit difficult at first, but after a bit Iof a learning curve and help from Adorama, the book turned out great!
My wonderful son just graduated from college and I would love to print a book of his life, adoption day through leaving the nest day. He has been a joy to us.
My mother turns 100 on August 4 this year. She has been part of an amazing century and as Australia is only a little more than 200 years as a nation, is one of the pioneers of our country, and has wonderful yarns she shares with children grandchildren and now great grandchildren. I would enjoy presenting her with her stories illustrated.
I would create a scrapbook of all the funny pictures of my husband of 24 years, as I literally have over 1,000 photos of him making silly faces, kayaking, motorcycling, shooting firearms, doing home projects, and loving his four grown girls.
I would like to create a photo book of my son who is longer with us as a gift for my family. My intent is to make his loss easier by celebrating his life in pictures.
It I kind of funny because I am also working on an album about my mother
Wow!! The photo book looks wonderful! I would love to create a book about our grandson. He is such a treasure!! We don’t see him very often because he lives so far away. He will be two in June, and I think a book full of pictures of him, and showing his cleverness and joie de vivre would be amazing! He is a darling!
Memorial day is a time for remembering the sacrifices made by the men and women in the military and their families. My book will be about the men and women in my family that have chosen to protect and serve! God Bless America and the men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country free!
Great review. I have always wondered about Adoramapix. Sounds like a great choice for a special book. I want to do a book about my heritage using the many pictures I have gathered of my ancestors.
My heritage… From when they came to America until now. I have been doing a lot of research and gotten back to the beginning of my family in America. It would be wonderful to put it into a photo book. Thank you for the chance to win!!!
I would like to make a book about my husband and me. Our life together from teenage courtship to 53 years of marriage (and still going). Our travels and life experiences. An AdoramaPix book sounds as though it would make a wonderful presentation to leave to our family.
I want to create an album about my daughter’s elementary school years — her classmates, teachers, besties, field trips, and parties she went to!
I would love this book. I would do this book about my family. Family is everything to me.
I would like to create a book for my daughter’s wedding.
Preparations, civil marriage, marriage and religion course of the festival.
I would like to offer for all we remember this beautiful moment.
Thank you for the opportunity
I am currently taking a photo a day and scrapping one page per week of my entire 2015 year. My intention is to have this printed so that my sons will have a book on my thoughts, struggles, adventures and triumphs on a day-to-day basis.
I want to create a book about our recent trip.
I want to do a book about our family from when my husband and I first met through when our last child left home.
My photo book will be about our family stories…. filled with love, and filled with old antique photos and the stories that they tell.
I would like to create a book about my best friend’s parents who have become my second set of parents. My best friends are sisters and we have been friends since jr high school. We have basically grown up together. Their parents have been the best parents aside from my own. I would love to put a book together of how our families have grown over the years.
Carol aka Traveller
If I could create a photobook about one topic it would be about our fabulous trip to India a couple of years ago
I would finish and print the book that I started several years ago while taking the class from Linda that was
All about me!
Love the idea of doing a book all about my dad who died when I was just 20. Linda, your book looks wonderful!
I just recently came across a old paper album of black and white photos that my great grandmother had. I would love to put those in digital form for all my family to enjoy for years to come!
I am an adoptee and I made contact with my biological mother about twenty years ago. I have also met my half sister and two half brothers. I would love to make a book incorporating the photos I now have of my mother and siblings.
I would do an album with my Mother’s family pictures
