I have written on this topic so many times I can’t even remember anymore (see what I did here?). I’ve written about how I loved scrapbooks, I’ve written about how I’ve learnt to hate them and how to make a happy memory wall in your living room. Marc Riboud (a famous French photographer) once said –
‘Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second’
And I couldn’t agree more – life is too short but also too forgetful. Today I want to show you a 21st century upgrade of the old school photo album – my newly found way of capturing memories in a whole new and incredibly sophisticated way.
As you probably already know, Cheerz (click here) is my go to photo company. The quality of their products is immense (and I ain’t even being paid to say this, ha! just saying), the paper, the print, the presentation – just everything is spot on. And they are ever so creative too – I adore my Cookie bookmarks I had done last year – they are the sweetest little thing to put in the books I’m currently reading.
This time the team has kindly let me create a photo album. The process is simple enough – you upload, drag and drop, crop and swap and after a few minutes of playing about with the layout you’re done. A few days later and the photo album is in your hands and you’re literally crying with excitement (oh wait, that was me, not you). I can’t tell you how beautiful the packaging of the album is – it comes in a box which kinda feels like Nars packaging (you know the silicony grippy feel) and the album itself is so so beautiful (a real coffee table book material!). I put our holiday photos from 2015 in it – both from Prague and Santorini and also a few from when we did the Color Run last year. The photos looks stunning in the album, I can’t even begin to tell ya – just have a look in the pictures below! I’m definitely getting another one for our 2016 holidays at the end of this year, can’t wait to show you already – and we haven’t even been anywhere yet, haha!
What’s your favourite way of storing memories?
