 You guys!  I have another fun Blog Hop for you today!  ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN of us have joined up to bring you some fabulous giveaways, and all of them are book-related!  Its our way of officially saying goodbye to summer and hello to staying indoors and cozy-ing up to the comfort of books and novels, virtual or in print :)  Be sure to hop around to all the blogs at the bottom of this post, and check in with our hosts, BTS Book Reviews, Decadent Publishing, and Everpress Media for the grand prize of a Kindle or Nook!  (They are the first three blogs to follow in the list below) hop-summer-september-1

Our featured giveaway here at Dandy Giveaway is sponsored by Poyomi.  Now to introduce them, let me tell you about how I have an entire bookcase of 3-inch binders chock full of pictures of me for every year of my life.  Its true.  My mother has labored for hours over pictures, cardstock, and cut-out printed captions to preserve all of our memories since the day I was born!  I LOVE looking through these scrapbooks that have preserved all the pictures and stories of the people and things that I love!

Try as I might, I am not my mother.  I can’t do it!  I could keep up with it for awhile, but I think the 2-kid lifestyle pushed me over the edge and I just have TOO many great pictures I want to preserve that we really don’t have the space to keep adding a 3-inch binder to the collection every year.

I have actually been anti-photobook for awhile, convinced that they are a little too impersonal and uniform, but I’ve really changed my thinking after creating my own book with Poyomi.  Putting it together online was really just an exciting, creative, and fulfilling activity for me!  I was able to paste in all of the important pictures I could find from other that last 15 months, which came out to be 90 pages, and the entire book is less than 1/4″ thick.  Your book could be 20 pages or less or even up to 384 pages!

The creative process was so easy and slick.  I basically uploaded the pictures I wanted, selected which ones to combine onto a page, and rearranged if I wanted certain pictures to be larger than others.  There were multiple times that I saved my project and came back later to finish up.

I felt just as crafty as if I was cutting and pasting actual pictures because I’m still copying, pasting, arranging, and really personalizing my own scrapbook, but it is just SO CLEAN that I don’t want to ever go back!  The pictures look printed in high-resolution on thick paper with the detail and brightness preserved.

Poyomi can create your photo books into different dimensions besides the standard “Letter” size.  They can also print into “Digest”, “Digest Landscape”,  “Square” and “Calendar”, as well as perfectly bound, or saddle stitched.
IMG_6886What I reeeally love about this set-up is being able to paste in pictures of odd and unusual dimensions, like collages I have photoshopped together for blog posts.  If I were to print this in regular 4 x 6 format, things would get chopped off, squished, or come back completely unusable.  Poyomi lets me keep the dimensions I’ve got, and just arranges according to what layout makes the most sense.  Zero frustration.

They also have an ipad app and an iphone app, and both are free.  Here’s a snazzy video to give you an idea of how that works:
Doesn’t this inspire you to want to create your own book of memories?!

One lucky winner will receive $50 to spend at Poyomi to create their own photo book!

“The photos you take tell the stories of your life” –Heritage Makers

How true!  My mom always says that if you didn’t take a picture, it didn’t happen.  And I completely agree!  Events where I never took any pictures have practically been erased from my memory.  That’s kind of a scary realization, so I’ve always been a picture-taking-fool around anything momentous, or anything I want to remember in the future!

“Heritage Makers can help you preserve and showcase those photos in beautiful, published keepsakes that are uniquely yours and easy to share.”

I couldn’t have said it better!  Heritage Makers lets you use the pictures on your computer to create beautiful projects that you’ll love sharing and showing off (and perhaps giving as gifts!)  There are so many lovely things to make, including professionally bound books,

personalized greeting cards, and lovely wrapped canvas prints.

Some exciting new products at Heritage Makers include Ornaments, Metal Prints, iPhone cases and Leather Bucket Bags!

 

Dana Muse is a certified founding consultant at Heritage Makers and a longtime friend of Dandy Giveaway!
