One of my goals for 2016 is to capture more of life through photos and to then find more creative ways to get them off my camera and phone and into the real world. I’ve been sharing ideas like my insta-wall, printed canvases and photo gift tags so I was delighted when Snapfishchallenged me to come up with a way to use their products to either achieve or immortalise my new year’s resolutions (sometimes things just click you know).
I decided to create the ultimate coffee table book – one that would be filled with photographs from important events across the last year. Easy right? Snapfish offer lots of photo book options (check them out here) and the site is really easy to use – you simply upload all of the photos you want to include (or choose from) and then your can design your book page by page, changing the background, layout and even editing photos as you wish. There’s even an autofill function which would work brilliantly if you were capturing one event or moment.

Childhood artwork often cycles from fridge frames to closet clutter faster than relatives can say, “Look how much you’ve grown!” Instead of allowing my childhood masterpieces to collect dust in the attic, I decided to turn some of my favourites into a photo book, which doubles as a delightful coffee table tome and a sentimental souvenir.
