Scrapbook Design Steps

Getting a custom scrapbook designed for your photos and memories is easy. When you hire me to create a custom scrapbook for you, I do all the work, saving you time, energy and frustration!

Steps-involved-in

Your first step is to contact me to tell me about your project and help determine the size of your scrapbook. During the purchase process, you’ll digitally “sign” a contract and pay a 50 percent deposit through PayPal to get started. You can also pay by check or money order. The remaining balance will be due before the finished album is shipped to you. *Please note: if you have a specific deadline for your album please let me know when you contact me.

Once I start working on your scrapbook I will contact you via email or phone with any questions I have.  You can also let me know if you have any suggestions for color schemes you’re considering, themes or any ideas, such as titles, that you have that you would like incorporated into the pages.

To begin your project, you’ll follow the instructions below about how to send your photos to Lilly Avenue Paper Designs. To give you an idea of turn-around time…generally, a 20-page scrapbook takes two to three weeks to complete. Again, if you have a specific deadline for your scrapbook, contact me immediately to determine if I can accommodate your needs.

Instructions for Mailing Photos

You’ll organize your photos into separate envelopes or Ziploc baggies with any notes for information—such as colors, titles and journaling—you want to go along with your photos.

You will need:

  • Pen
  • Ziploc bags or envelopes

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Select which photos you want to include in your album so that they can be organized into smaller groups.
  2. Separate the photos into groups using any of the following criteria: subject, person(s) in photos, dates, events, etc.
  3. For each group of photos select a subject name & write that name (e.g. Christmas, 2007) on the outside of a Ziploc bag or envelope.
  4. Write any and ALL information that you want included on the page on the Ziploc bag or envelope. Indicate if you want journaling (if so, please type and email any journaling separately). Also indicated your title preferences, color preferences and any other requests for that set of photos.
  5. Follow the same procedure for EACH group until ALL photos are inventoried. Please do not use paperclips, tape or post-it notes as these can all damage the photos.
  6. Mail the photos in a box with insurance and tracking.
