Start with a Quality Album - as a good foundation.
Starting with a quality album gives you the foundation for a nice gift to yourself or your recipient. You're album is only as good as the product you start with. Don't cut corners otherwise the gift won't last.
Listed here are a few items sampling where I begin in my process. Note that I tend to use albums that have journaling space available next the photo page. That quickly allows you to jot down information while it is still fresh to your memory. Just an added detail I like to include that says quality, but the choice is yours.
I like any added details to an album. This one has a ribbon closure available. Available in a variety of colors.
There are several albums out there with a nice embellishment already printed on the front cover. To quickly personalize this album you would just need to create a miniture card from your computer with name and date. Instant personalization.
Another sample of a nice embellished album with fun flower prints. Very chic!
Personalize Inside the Photo Album
A Favorite Photo Page
Everyone has at least one favorite photo from each event. Why not provide a special space for that favorite photo.
By placing a photo mat frame with detailed personal information it sets the tone for what's to come. Jazzed up with a few icons to commerate the event.
Personalize with names, dates of the event and destination.
Here are a few examples of a 'Favorite Photo Page'.

Adding More Details Creates a Very Special Photo Album.
Here are a few items that can be added for the ultimate specialized album.
Why not decide on a personalized and memorable gift for your family, friends or clients. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness and will think of you every time they open their personalized photo album.
- Add a charmed ribbon bookmark.
- Add 6-10 photo frames for the individual photo pages. Using speciality paper increases the personal touches.
- Create a 'Compliments of' information section on the front inside cover so the recipient always remembers who the gift was from. If this is a gift to a client they will always have your contact information right at hand.
- Create a scrapbook photo album by adding a full page dedicated to a section of the pictures. See pictures below of an 'Extra Special Personalized Theme Album' for examples of this.
- Use these albums as a portfolio to show off your work.
What other extra details can you think of to make your own personalized photo album unique?
An Extra Special Personalized Theme Album
I will finish up here by sharing with you a special album I created for a client's daughter's first birthday.
I began with a larger than normal album. I shopped specifically for an album put together with post that would allow me to take the photo album apart.
Disassembling the album allowed me to insert added scrapbook pages. On those pages I was able to create divided tabbed sections for easier identification of each section.
This particular photo album did not offer journaling pages so I created my own for each section.
Using items my client saved from the event I was able to create these unique scrapbook pages.
It turned out better than I had imagined and is a truly memorable keepsake for both this Mom and her daughter.
Look close for all the details. This was a labor of love. I enjoyed pulling it all together and the Mom that received it was very pleased with the outcome.
I hope you the pictures inspire you to create one for yourself using your own party favors.
