How to Create a Scrapbook*

If there’s one thing that I’ve wanted to do for ages, that is create a scrapbook. I love the idea of having a book full of memories that’s available to look back at. At the moment I use Instagram for this, but if anything was to happen, a lot of memories would be gone just like that. (Which is a little scary to think about) 

I was recently contacted by the lovely people over at Printiki, with the offer of printing some photos, and you can do this from Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, Google Plus, One Drive,Your History or Upload your own. Which is quite a lot of options, I went for Instagram, as these are harder to save properly once you have uploaded them.

Printiki also offer an option to style your prints out on your wall. I got a Christmas Tree, which is adorable!

Let’s get into How to Create a Scrapbook

I bought a scrapbook from B&M for £3.99. I do need to get something to stick the photos in with, but I’m thinking of using double-sided tape, or maybe a glue stick; who knows.

I decided to go with the Square M Prints which was definitely not influenced by Instagram… okay, maybe it was. I also added a white border, because we all love a good border right? You can have a black border or go simple with no border.

You then simply pick the photos that you want, and you can crop the photo if you wish too. You also chose your finish, glossy or matte; I went for glossy. That’s it, you’re done!

Of course you don’t have to create a scrapbook, you can display them however you like. As they are essentially Polaroids.

I’m really happy with these prints it reminds me of having a disposable camera, where you have to send of your photos off and wait for them to come back, but you don’t have to wait for long for these! The quality of the photos is also lovely!

Printiki also have an Instagram page if you want to get more inspiration on how to style your prints when you receive them. That is how to create a scrapbook.

    B&M is such a great shop, if you spend a little time in there you can find some great things. They have a lovely lightbox for sale that I’d really like.

    What a beautiful idea! It’s one thing to have photos stored on your phone or computer but flicking through physical copies is so much better! I love this scrapbook too!

      It’s so scary to think that if your computer got a virus or something all of your photo’s would be gone just like that, so have physical copies is a must! Thank you!xx

    I really want a scrap book but I suck at taking pictures! I have a diary where I write everything I have done to look back on memories but it would be nice to have pictures. xx

    I started my scrapbook last Summer and it was the best thing I did. I stick everything into my scrapbook – sweet wrappers from memorable days, train tickets, concert tickets, luggage tags, photographs – everything!! They’re such a fab way to store everything and anything you want to remember, keep and never throw away!

    Lots of love from Mollie xxx | http://wwwtheperksofmolliequirk.blogspot.com
