A couple years ago I started making a “family book” including pictures, stories, and the important events in our lives. It took me a super long time to finally figure out a format and layout that I was pleased with. Now I use InDesign and follow a format inspired by magazines and books. I tried to make it simple enough so I could keep up with the information, but detailed enough to actually capture our life. This is a sampling from last May.
There are lots of programs that will format your pictures and text, but I like being able to design it myself. I’m planning to get last year’s book printed through Blurb.
How do you “scrapbook”?
