This giveaway is now closed. See who won here.
I’ve been scrapbooking for about a decade. While some people will say you can’t put a price on memories, I can personally attest that those early years of scrapbooking were quite the budget busters as I had to have all the latest tools and papers.
I’ve since become much more of a computer geek, and prefer to do digital scrapbooking. It’s faster, no-mess, and much more affordable. Sometimes I create my own layouts, but if time is an issue (it often is), I love using online photo services to create memory books.
So when Lulu.com contacted me and asked if I’d like to try creating a photo book, I was thrilled. We’d just done a family photo shoot and we had hundreds of gorgeous photos just waiting to be put in an album!
I created a 20-page 8.5 x 11 hardcover photo book at Lulu.com using one of their many attractive templates. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t a lot of flexibility in the templates (i.e. changing the photo layout), but I was still able to get the look I wanted. Lulu makes it easy to share your photo book, print multiple copies, and even sell them as a fundraiser. The site is easy to use and I didn’t have to download anything to my computer to design my book.
Uploading photos to the site was much faster than other companies I’ve used in the past, which is a huge plus! I was able to complete my photo book in about an hour.
I’m extremely pleased with the quality of the books – sturdy construction and gorgeous color. Lulu’s prices are very reasonable, too. (starting at 15.95 for a softcover 8.5×11 photo book). If you’re looking for a new place to create photo books, I would recommend checking out Lulu.com.
And now for the big news:
Lulu.com is letting me give one of you a 20-page photo book of your choice!
