"If You Want To Take My Picture..."

Recently I was given the opportunity to try a new Photo service called Modern Greetings.  It is similar to the other photo sites on the web, in that you can make photo projects, and other personalized items.

I make photo books for every holiday, so I was excited to try out a new company.  I decided to make my Halloween book, with them.

The first thing that I really liked about Modern Greetings, was the many themes and options that they offered.  They seemed to have a theme for every holiday and event that I could think of.  I really liked their Halloween options, and found choosing a template very easy. 

However I found their site to be a little less user friendly than the others.  I had trouble uploading and editing my pictures at first, but then again I am not great with new technological things.  It probably was just me, because actually after a few pages I seem to have their system down

If you are someone that takes a lot of pictures, you will love their photo books.  They seem to have twice as many slots for photos, than the books that I usually make. I had a hard time filling all of them, so I decided to leave some of them blank.  I have thought about doing this in the past, so I could have spots to write memories in.  This time I actually did it, and am so happy that I did!!

I bought two Sharpie markers (I am going to have to do a post about them soon, and everything that I have been able to do with them). They worked perfectly on the photo pages, and didn't smudge one bit.  I was able to write special memories about the night, and things that we may not remember some day.  I know my son will have a great time reading these when he gets older. (like the temper tantrum he threw when we tried to take him home;) )  The marker looked great on the pages, and really stood out.  I really recommend trying this with your next photo project.  I know you can have text printed on the pages, but there is something special about having the memories written by hand.

A huge plus for Modern Greetings, is their customer service.  Leaving blank spots in a photo book is not typical, so they actually called me to confirm that I wanted the spaces left blank.  I was blown away by their individual customer service.  It was nice to know that a book that was so special to me, was special to them too:) 

Modern Greetings sells more than photo items, they also sell personalized stationary, invites, greeting cards etc...

I picked up some personalized stationary from them, and am very pleased with it.

WooHoo!! So excited to give my 1st photo book a try!! I've been thinking of several photo book ideas, including the big one ~ Iza's 1st Year!!

Shelby once you start you will make one for everything. I have one for pregnancy/birth, first 6 months, 2nd 6 months, 1st birthday, and every major holiday or vacation. They are so cute, and fun to leave out on the coffee table, because they aren't as overwhelming as a photo album. These are just your favorites, in a cute format:)

...and you don't have to have kids to make them. Justyn and I did them before kids. We have our 1st house and holidays:)
