Personalised Scrapbook: How it Works
We love remembering something special, funny or extraordinary and scrapbooking helps us keep those memories fresh. Adorned with your photos, tickets, letters and anything else you want to preserve, our personalised scrapbook albums make for a fun, quirky hobby as well as immensely thoughtful gifts. Handmade using traditional binding methods and covered in woven Monroe satin, there's something very magical and charming about these scrapbook albums.
Step 1: Think of your content
What is it that you are looking to fill your pages with? Some people love documenting pregnancies, first year of marriage, baby's first year and summer holidays. Once you have your inspiration, start gathering your scraps. These can include anything from photos and love letters to tickets and post-it notes.
Step 2: Decide how you want to organise your scrapbook
We suggest thinking about how you want the final project to look, and who it is for. If this is a project just to fulfill your inner creative, then you can be as scrappy as you like, but if it's to be presented at a special event, you might want a little structure.
Step 3: Choose your size and layout
Choose from small, medium and large scrapbooks - the sizes are below.
Step 4: Create a design for the front and back cover
Once you have chosen your size, you can then create your design for the front and back. Again, think about:
- Who the scrapbook is for
- What event or occasion you want to preserve
- Whether you want to include text
- If you want an elegant or a more rustic look
With our design interface, you can add as many photos as you want to the front and back cover, or scale it back and just print one powerful photo to best showcase your theme. You can also add text to your scrapbook cover, perfect to note the date or occasion.
Step 5: Fill your scrapbook and make memories
The fun part! Start collecting little mementos from days out and events that you want to remember in years to come. Even memories from a chilled day in the park can be preserved by picking a flower that you were sitting next to. Scribble the date, who you were with and what you were doing for a creative display of your memories.

All scrapbooks are for you to mount your photos manually, so we also offer an optional pack of 250 double sided photo mounts. Acid free, they won't ruin your pictures. If this is for a special gift like 21st birthday or anniversary, select for it to be presented in a classic black slip case for an elegant finish.
Do You Have any Design Tips or Ideas?
The Monroe satin we use for the hardback covers is a woven fabric, so we recommend using images and designs with bolder detailing or larger photos to ensure a sharp finish. If you'd like to create a photo collage on the front and back, simply upload and select several photos then choose one of our ready-made montage styles or have fun arranging the photos yourself. Just like the potential of your scrapbooking ideas, what you can print to personalise the covers is limitless. The covers have metal corner protectors, however this shouldn't infringe on your design.
