FOR GOD SO LOVES…Family Easter Book

So…this is my latest project for my cousin and her family – CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A PREVIEW OF THE WHOLE BOOK. It’s¬†an 8×8 soft cover storybook filled with messages of love. What do you think? A priceless treasure for the family don’t you think?

Want your own version? Two ways to do this:

  1. Get a Premier account with Heritage Makers (or be on CLUB HM and get your Premier account FREE) and I’ll send you the template. Then just drag and drop your own photos in, change the colours, artwork and backgrounds, add your own text and voila…your book is done!!
  2. OR hire me to make one for you. I’ll email you a form where you can fill in the particulars – names, favourites, colour scheme, etc. and then email it back to me with your photos. I’ll put the book together, send you a preview, and, when you’re satisfied, I’ll publish it and ship it right to your front door.

44 years of love…and still going strong!!

Check out my dad’s valentine gift for my mom! Isn’t it so sweet?! He picked the pictures and wrote out what he wanted to say and I put the book together for him using a template (#24774) and mostly changing the colouring. She received it today – Valetine’s Day of course – and her response was, “I got a Valentine’s surprise this morning that you helped make! What a lovely gift to get and it’s beautiful.” I think she liked it!! ūüôā

I’d LOVE to hear from your, so tell me, which is your favourite page?

This could be YOUR family heritage album!!

Yates Family Album
Check out my latest project – a family heritage book for a co-worker of mine. She was so thankful to be doing this book now as her mom is the last living relative of her generation and she’s already beginning to get confused and forget lots…family connections and occasions. Now, the whole family will have a record to pass along generation after generation. What a priceless treasure!!

NEW YORK CITY – a whirlwind adventure!

Take a peak at the book I made to commemorate the 5 day trip my best friend and I made to NYC. Above you see the¬†cover¬†(and did you notice that I spelled my title (new york city) with photos of letters that we¬†found around the city – cool, eh?!)¬†It was a very special trip for both of us so we wanted to put our memories into a storybook and here it is! I used a template, which gave me the basic design, but I LOVE how Heritage Makers allows me to make ANY changes to the template I want to – colour, embellishments, number, location, and size of photos – anything I want! The book took me about 2 weeks to put together and is 81 pages….Yes, you read that right – 81 PAGES!! The best part was that it only cost me $125. If I had made it with paper it would have run me well over $300-$400 – at least! AND a few YEARS to get it completed.

Here’s my favourite pages – but there are lots, lots more…check out the link.

So, a week ago Friday I discovered that no one had taken on the grade 8 yearbook this year. Normally it was started months earlier and it would need to be sent to the publisher in just under 2 weeks in order for it to arrive at the school before the end of the school year. Mission Impossible??? Not with Heritage Makers! Here’s the cover of the yearbook designed by yours truly. Click on it to see how the rest of it turned out and tell me what you think. How did I do??

**Note: names and photos of students have been blurred in order to protect identities.**

     Next year? Whole school yearbook!! Yipeeee!!
