My 2017 book of memories arrived over the weekend, and I’m excited to share a short video walk-through with you of the finished album.

I am amazed each year—and this is the fourth digital year-long book project I’ve created—at the quality of the printing from My book is comprised of roughly 4 pages per month for a total of 50 pages and the cost came in at $146.99 for the final book. I feel like that is a great price for such a quality end result! This is a company with a passion for print and they want you to be happy with the results.

Me? I am thrilled with the results!

Here is a short video of the finished album.

And with that, the album goes up onto the shelf and I begin to work on a new book for 2018. | scrapbook your year e-course

I have done four books to date (and yes, I have mismatched spines), but for me, what matters is that slices of this amazing life are all saved in a simple, do-able approach.

    Wow! That’s awesome, to finish your pl and print them.
    You mentioned you have 4 pages per month, what do you do with the road trip photos? How do you limit them? Last year we went on a 2 day road trip and I got 6 pages for that week. Do you think it’s too much? I just want an insight as to what to do.

      I would add the extra pages as needed! No worries. Some months you’re going to have more going on and a month with a trip is a great example of that. This is actually the smallest album I’ve done to date. Past years had more pages because I had months with 6 pages. 🙂 You’re doing great! Go with what your photos dictate!

    I love this so much that I am thinking of doing this for the trip we took to Italy last year vs a traditional scrapbook. I have sooo many photos that I would need to choose the “best of the best.” Can I ask you why you stay with AdoramaPix vs Artifact Uprising or Persnickety?

      Yes, quality and service. I love Artifact Uprising, but I have never used them for a large book. I wanted something printed in photographic quality and the paper Adorama uses is literally photo luster coated paper. It’s heavy and really good quality.

      That’s my main reason. I’m not even sure how I found them. I think it was back when I was looking for a company that would print 8.5 x 11 books, and maybe that is how I found them. But their commitment to quality and service keeps me as a customer. : )

        I assume you did a “create your own?” I like how “clean” your pages look but since I am new to this, thought I would need to start with one of their design templates. I really didn’t see one I liked or one that would allow me ample journaling space.

          Yes! The templates are from my Scrapbook Your Year class. 🙂 And then we upload our full sized, full page JPEGs of each finished album page to adorama, and just use their blank page base to drop them in.

            So would it make sense for me to purchase the class, even though I am going to use it for a trip? And I assume I could also use it to Scrapbook My Year in 2019 – when I am caught up with other projects (like my 30 Days of Gratitude) (-;

            Michelle, I can’t say if it would be worth it or not. If you’re only doing a trip, and you don’t need help organizing, it just doesn’t make sense for that project.

            For a year long project, yes. This class isn’t dated in that sense, but if you don’t need the help sorting out how to do it, it’s probably not a good fit!

    I love this book Cathy. Do you have the months of the year circle stamp 3×4 cards available to purchase, as a digital stamp or 3×4 card?

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful album and thank you for getting me hooked on AdoramaPix!! I just purchased my third album. My first album was my trip to Alaska, second album I made was for my daughters wedding photo guest-book and third album finished the whole year for 2016.

    Cathy-I loved seeing the finished product! I took your class and the best was getting organized! The angels sang and didn’t make the whole process feel overwhelming. I would suggest your Scrapbook your Year course to anyone who needs to get their sh*t in order…and have an awesome product at the end.
