Digital scrapbooks or photo memory books made it so easy for me to record my stories after my husband died. I now create them regularly for each year of my son’s life, as well as special vacations we take. Recently for my niece’s birthday, I made her a personalized story book of an imaginary adventure she and my son took in pursuit of dinosaurs. It included photos from our vacation with their family, which ended in a dinosaur museum.
People ask me which online memory book company I use when I create a memory book. I have used two Picaboo
What I love about Picaboo
What I love about Blurb
So my general recommendation for online memory books are:
for easy to make, high quality, beautiful photo memory books if (and it doesn’t always happen) 90 layouts starts to feel confining and you want to expand your creative capacity give Blurb a try.
An Update with My New Fav:
If neither of these options seem like a fit for you, I've been reading great reviews about My Memories Suite. This is a software that you buy, but then you have a lot more freedom about where and how you can print your pages and books. It also has many more features the free software doesn't have. Some highlights of what has been attracting me to this program:
