Why do we love this book?

We love this book for many reasons! We love how Claudia covered a ton of different subjects: Basketball, weddings, soccer and even fall–all in one book! We also love how she used embellishments, typography and backgrounds to create stunning and unique layouts. This books is full of unique and new approaches to designing your Picaboo photo books and we hope you draw as much inspiration from it as we did.

How was this book designed?

With precision. One of the things we love about this book is how Claudia used backgrounds to create a cohesive look from page to page.

In this spread, the backgrounds look like embellishments. This is such a clever idea! Thanks for inspiring us, Claudia!

In this spread, the backgrounds add dimension and move your eye along the page. Isn’t this beautiful?

What makes this book so special?

 We love how Claudia inspired us to change up our layouts. Her new uses for backgrounds, embellishments and groups of images are unique. And they’re a good resource for the next time you’re looking for a creative layout for your book.

 This is a lovely way to incorporate several photos from one event into a cohesive layout.


Here’s what Claudia had to say about her book:

I made this book for myself.  I am an amature photographer and decided to put some of my favorite pictures for the year in a book.  I can then judge whether I have improved as the years go by.  I also love to travel and I have a lot of fun pictures from other countries and fun vacations.
