Picfolio Ideas

Since I began Creative Memories 19 years ago I have completed a family album every year.  They are all in black albums and line the shelves of my family room.

Here is a picture of some of them. (The rest are on the other wall)




For my 2008 family album I decided to change it up a bit.  I chose an Expandable Picfolio Album to use for my family album. 

This was a bit of a stretch for me after 28 years of using a traditional scrapbook but I was up for the challenge. 

I am now a Picfolio convert!

Completing an entire year of my families photos in one day was enough to convert me!

I couldn't believe how quick and easy it went together and with the new Expandable Picfolio I was able to fit an entire years worth of photos(and 2008 was a BIG year for photos) into one full Expandable Picfolio and one regular Picfolio.

Here are some photos of some of my pages.  I used the Earthy Milestone Kit to add some color and decoration to the pages and some of our great Monogram ABC sticker letters to jazz things up!

If you've been hesitant to try this new style of scrapbook I encourage you to give it a try - so quick and easy!! 

I had my pictures printed with a white border around them for the Picfolio - I liked the way that offset them against the tan colored page.  It gave the photos/pages a more finished look.

  1. I am so glad you posted about the Picfolios. I have been staring at them for a week now online trying to figure out if that was the solution I'm looking for. I want to do a general family album for each year or two but not scrapbook the entire thing. I think this is going to be perfect. Will be ordering one soon!

  2. I love the idea of the white border around the photos, it really makes them stand out. Can you do that in MM before you order or is it an add on at the photo center?
    Did you organize your photos in MM first?
    I really want to try this for a years photos to see if I can get it all done in one weekend!
