Printing Photo Books at Viovio

For Christmas I printed my first few photo books.  I used a company that I ran across called Viovio because the prices are very good and they have multiple binding and size options.  When I received my first book, I was so excited and impressed.  The quality is excellent and affordable.  I will use them for all my photo books from here on out.  Even my mom is asking me to help her get some binding done through them.  Viovio is actually the company that convinced me to finally go 100% digital because their prices made it cost much less than printing at home and using sheet protectors in a binder, plus it looks so much nicer!  Click on the link here or at the side of my blog to find out more!


Here are a few pictures of my books to see what I did.  I buy the soft covers so that my children can easily lug them around and enjoy their books (and also it makes it less expensive to buy a replacement copy if they "over love" their books).

Also just a tip if you use them...make sure you read their book specifications on the sidebar to make the books top quality.

Stay tuned for future postings about layout templates I am creating that will be available through Viovio.

Blog Makeover

It's a New Year and a New Look!  I finally decided to take the time to redo my blog's look instead of using a set template.  In my scrapbooking I love bright, bold, and clean, so that is what I tried to portray in my new look.  I hope you all like it!

Scripture Flannel Board Stories: Lehi's Dream

As I was preparing my Sunday School lesson for Church this week, I needed to create a visual depiction of Lehi's Dream.  I decided that I would go ahead and make the pictures on the computer for fun.  After spending all that time on them, I thought others may enjoy them too, so I am posting them for you to use either in class or for Family Home Evening.  You will also get to see a sneak peak of the new design for my kits and blog theme that I am in the middle of working on.  Enjoy!

January LDS Blog Train

Here is my creation!  I really enjoyed making these elements.  I grew up camping and backpacking so I have plenty of pictures that need to be used in a layout.  My goal this year is to create more specific themed scrapbook kits, so when I tried to think of a theme to base Choose the Right around, one of the ideas I brainstormed was Choosing the Right Path, which naturally went well with camping.  
If anyone has a specific theme they would like to have more elements created for, just leave a note in the comments and I will see if I can work it into the LDS Blog Train themes throughout the year.  

Happy Scrapping and Happy New Year!
