Don’t miss this unique opportunity to save, comment, and win with Digital Scrapper and AdoramaPix.com. But most of all, don’t miss the opportunity to  experience  what I did when I made a special photobook for a very special person…

Carter Grows Up

My baby boy. Sniff. He’s not so ‘baby’ anymore. Sniff.2016-0524-dsnews-carter2

For the last 3 years, it’s just been Carter and me at home during the day. He doing homeschool lessons. Me occasionally chiming in while balancing a work-from-home routine. 

Carter is off to college in the fall. I dry my tears and look to the future. I tell myself, “This is something to CELEBRATE, my dear!”

Don’t Cry—CELEBRATE!

Whether spring has brought you the little gift of a graduate, a bride, a grandchild, etc—it deserves to be documented in a BIG way. 

Indulge me for a minute, yes? I’d love to have you sit with me on my virtual couch and show you a snapshot of my Graduate book.

2save-1

First, I have a confession to make. I saved this project till the last minute. Shocking, right? Well, don’t feel too sorry for me. That’s pretty much just how I roll.

Regardless of being ill-prepared, in less than a 6 hour time span, I managed to:

  • compile scans and digitals—one photo representing each year of Carter’s life to this point, plus a few favorites from his senior portraits
  • create 15 double page spreads plus a cover
  • upload and order an AWESOME book from AdoramaPix.com

BLANK

How did I do it so fast?2save-3

Honestly, I could NOT have done it without Linda’s Picture Perfect Gift Books class. (See celebration details below.)

Here’s why:

  • I tend to make EVERYTHING overcomplicated. I think it’s a disease?!? But, this class kept me focused and thinking classy, yet simple. It made the project do-able (not overwhelming) in my eyes.
  • Linda includes templates for AdoramaPix’s books. This saved me a TON of time on research and trial/error. A TON.
  • Linda also includes a video showing how to upload, create, and order a book correctly—the first time. Again . . . no time needed by me trying to figure out the software on AdoramaPix’s website.

BLANK

2save-4My Special Focus

Because I kept my Graduate book super simple, I wanted to give it a special touch to keep it personal.

So, on each page I created a list of big things that happened to Carter during that particular year. It ended up working as a timeline of his life.

I included things like:

  • his age and year in school
  • his first tooth missing
  • his broken arm
  • when he was baptised
  • mission trips he took
  • big vacations he took with family

At the end of my book, I created a section that featured some senior portraits.

2Save-6BLANK

How did he (and I) like the book?

Carter doesn’t get overly excited about much. He has a pretty even temperament. But, a mom knows when her son feels honored and thankful. Yes. He LOVES it! He will treasure it always.

Me, on the other hand . . . well, I DO get overly excited about things. (Hence—the CELEBRATION here on the blog.) Adorama’s photobooks are second to none. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will be gifting a quality book every time I order.

I communicate daily with other digital scrapbookers. They adamantly testify that AdoramaPix’s photobooks are far superior to other brands when it comes to value vs price.

    No, unfortunately I do not have a photobook of myself growing up. Pictures taken were few and far between. 🙁
    That’s why I have made sure that I made each one of my four grown children a full life photobook before they left home, documenting from their birth to graduation. We all love and cherish those special keepsake photobooks.

    I personally do not have a photo book, but I have made many scrapbooks through my daughters lives. My first is also graduating High School this year. Making a photo book for her sounds like a great idea! I could try it!

    I started a book about my life with Linda Sattgast’s Your Story: Brilliant, but I haven’t finished it. That’s on my to-do list…
    When it became clear that my mother was nearing the end of her days, I made a scrapbook of her life using photos my siblings and I culled from boxes of (mostly unlabeled/undated) photos stored in closets and garages of Mom and her siblings. It was a daunting but very fun and very educational task for me and my sibs. Even after Mom’s memory of current/recent events was mostly gone, she enjoyed paging through the scrapbook showcasing her childhood and young adulthood. I scanned the photos and made the pages digitally using Photoshop, and then created them as 12×12″ paper pages for a book she could hold on her lap and share with her “housemates” at the memory care centers she lived in for the last couple years of her life.
    I purchased Linda’s Picture Perfect Book class with the thought of making a book for one of my sisters, who will be turning 65 next year. I guess I’d better get on it ;o)

    My autobiographical book about me is ongoing. Since I print my pages, put them in page protectors, and assemble in post bound albums, I can continue working. The albums for the grandsons are really biographical. I’m writing their life story as they progress. Although I had begun writing my story before Linda first offered Your Story: Brilliant!, I was able to make more progress taking the class.

    I have a photo album that my mom made, but its the old sticky page album where the pictures are under a plastic sheet. The pages are miscoloured and the photos are starting to fall out. So to create a photobook so that the pictures wont fall out when i pick it up sounds like fun. Would love to create a book for both my husband and i. He does not have any book only a large pile of photos and by two boys dont have one either. My mission is to try get a babybook for each of us:)

    When I was 8 years old my parents and I vacationed by car around the West for nearly 4 weeks. My mother kept a journal which I discovered a few years ago after she passed away. All grown up and grandparents, my husband and I have made it a mission to take each grandchild on a trip of his own to experience the national parks and the wonders of this country. I am making a book on the similarities of these trips using Mom’s old black and white photos and her journal entries from 1958 and my journal notes combined with the modern color snapshots of later years, some of which were taken from nearly the same spot, a half century later!

    Thanks for your inspiration!

    I started putting a book together of my family and it morphed into a book for my Mother for Mother’s day. It’s funny how you start a project and it takes a turn. I still would like to make a book about me. She has been sharing her book with everyone so I think she liked it. !I have a good start for the next book. Congrats on your son’s book

    I have not made one for myself but have been focusing on those for my ancesters who emigrated to America from England and Germany. It has been very interesting to locate information about life in their native lands, why they would want to leave, the voyage, and life in America at that time. Pictures are primarily paintings, maps, and drawings located via Google.

    Would love to win this. I don’t have a book about me; in fact, I hardly have any photos of me as a young child. Cameras were not as easy to use then and photos were often taken in a studio when I was a young child.

    No I don’t have one about my life. What a good idea. My mother-in-law recently died, the last of our parents, and we realized how little we knew about her growing up years. My kids probably know just as little about mine.

    Congrats on the grad, Jen! My baby just turned 31. The years do fly by!

    I started a book about me during a “Your Story” class by Linda.(Great class and teacher!) I haven’t completed it yet, but have all my photos digitized. I just haven’t seem to find the time lately to get at it. I also need to do some for my kids. I need to retire!

    Jen – I can relate to having a graduate. Mine graduates this Sunday. I had this great idea to do a guest book that highlighted activities/events he participated in during school and attendees to his graduation party could sign the page(s) that related to their relationship with the graduate. Long story short – I overdid it and it became a scrapbook and in my son’s eye it was “to much”. He said people would want to stay to long at the guest book to look through the whole thing (ok – good point). So in the end he redesigned it with only one picture on a page (so not my style). And since I had the other pages almost done, I had them printed 12×12 size and will now display them on the wall at his graduation party. It took a lot longer than I thought to compile pictures over 16 years…it makes me wished I would have started using an organizer at some point. Oh well, it is done. Maybe some day I will do one for myself.

    I don’t have one for my sons (grown up!), but I have started my first granddaughter a book!! I plan on keeping hers up to date, although she has a 1 1/2 year old brother that doesn’t have one yet….of course, they are both so smart that they could probably do one themselves!!

    I do have the pictures in files ready to go…. I tell myself one page per day…. 🙂

    I have not made a book of my early years, but i have most of the photos. My mother made a photo album for each of her 4 kids – and presented It to us when we were married. What a wonderful wedding gift !
    I have the photos scanned. And have scrapped some special pages – like my Baptism. Etc.
    but not my whole early life which includes interesting stories.

    Great idea!

    Realising that there were many unanswered questions about my parents’ lives which could not be answered as they were no longer with us, I determined to create a book for each of our children. They love it and spent most of the night reading it. It’s given them a greater understanding of who they are. I didn’t know about digital scrapping at the time so my book was the old paste and print book. I’d love to create new ones for our grandchildren.

    I still refer back to the class often just to refresh my memory. I love the Lifetime membership when you take a class. It means I don’t have to download everything and yet it is always available.

    You have certainly given me food for thought! I do not have a book about me and I think at 78 years of age it would be fun to put together. I am sure my family would enjoy having a compilation of my life in the form of an album. I am going to start by putting photos I think would be interesting into a folder and then work on getting them in to layouts.

    I took Linda’s Picture Perfect Gift Books Class and loved it. While I am not a simplistic scrapbook designer, I did learn many excellent and important lessons during the class that helped me create a fabulous 34-page book from AdoramaPix as a gift for my daughter. She loved it and already treasures it. True, an AdoramaPix lay-flat book is a great product for the price.

    Linda’s class has also encouraged me to create a 100-page Family Memories Book which I have started and plan to complete for Christmas. While it will be about memories of my parents, their lives and the life they created for my 7 siblings and me, not just about me, during the process I am accumulating ideas for a Story About Me project to be completed next year.

    I am very glad I took the class and encourage others to do so.

    I have a photo album my late grandmother put together for me, the “scrapbook” of it’s day, and while I by no means have a photo or memory of every year, it’s one of my most treasured possessions, and reminds me how much she loved me.

    My little baby is ALSO graduating this year, not sure how they are letting babies wear caps and gowns and such. I am really excited about the potential to stay FOCUSED on a project and present her with a photo book for graduation. I think I have just enough time to get it done. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I’ve thought about making a book so many times but it just seems overwhelming. I’d like to make the first one for my Daddy who has some dementia, congestive heart failure, and stage 4 kidney disease. I have akways been a daddy’s girl and still am at 66 years old. He going to be turning 90 on June 5th. I’d love to sign up for Linda’s class but being on a fixed income makes it impossible. If I win the the class it would be a blessing for me and my Daddy.

    I am 76 and have a lot of old photos of my life and it would be nice to scan and put them into a book for the grand/greatgrand grandchildren who never had the opportunity to meet my parents/grandparents. I always think of photos for others and never thought about doing one for myself. Not quite sure how to get started.

    I would love to put together a book about me but my parents were not photographers and I have only a few photos from when I was young. When I was in college, the camera was always put away because we were too busy studying. After college, I started taking pictures. The last 15 years are my favorites since I was married 15 years ago. I honestly believe I have photos to fill that time frame and might not have to digitize many. Now isn’t a nice thought?

    I haven’t started a book about me – very difficult to do so as I am a ‘background’ type of person. I have done about 30 books – about travel, and every other member of my family. The comment above about leaving a legacy for the family is so true – so, I’ll move this book closer to the top of the list. PS: I have taken several classes from Linda and have learned something new each time – she makes it easy to understand and you feel you have accomplished something special.

    No, I don’t have a book about me yet. It is a project I would like to do. I have scanned quite a few of my Mom’s photos from my childhood, and I think I could tackle it – with a little help and inspiration!

    I do not have a book from my childhood or any phase of life, but I do have photos and my daughters have been after me to “tell my story!” I have started sorting, so am on my way. Thanks so much for this chance.

    LOVE Linda’s classes…NEVER disappointed in the classes she offers. Great teacher, thorough and takes you from knowing next to nothing to being able to create the most wonderful scrapbooks. And, of course, it’s always fun to win a class or a book.

    I don’t have a book about me- I’m too busy trying to get one done for the kids. But maybe sometime I will get to it! I’ve haven’t taken Linda’s class, but reading your description about it, I could really use it to get through a book quickly!

    I do not have a book on myself, but I have created 3 books so far for my children from birth to now. My grand daughter gets to take one of the books and share one item for their show and tell portion of her school class (grade 4).

    I’ve always been very artistic. Sadly due to health problems, I feel as though the rug was pulled from under my feet. Going on 30 yrs Dr’s, medications, x-rays, MRI’s,CAT-SCANS,depression. I continue to buy crafting supplies, still can’t get over this BLOCK.
    I truly appreciate artist’s as you to be mentors for those of us who are unable to get creativity going. Thanks again!

    I could make a basic one, not complete. I could do the same for my kids. I think I can do much better with my grandkids.

    Shoot, no, I have very few photos of my growing up years, and thus no book. However…I COULD come up with one using the photos I do have mixed in with journal pages…OK…you’ve got me interested in doing that!

    And congratulations on your accomplishment, shepherding another child through high school! Amazing how they suddenly start growing older than we are. hee hee.

    I do have a book about me. It was a class from along time ago that Linda taught. I believe it was All About Me, but I did also take the class that was on sale and have made two books for my granddaughter. She loves them and when they read to her at night she always gets those two books.

      YES! I believe the class you are referring to is “Your Story. Brilliant!” That was an AWESOME class! 😀
