Scrapbooking Made Easy With Picaboo.


When my daughter was born 5 years ago I was an avid scrapbooker, but over the years I've slowly let it go, because quite frankly--I just don't have time to spend hours on it. Unfortunately, I got my mother-in-law in the habit of receiving a scrapbook of Arianna every year, and right before she came down earlier this month she called me out on not giving her one last year! (oops)

So, I was left scrambling trying to make one, but instead of making it by hand, I decided to look into making one online--and in came Picaboo. Now, I actually had tried online scrapbooking before, but most I found either have very limited backgrounds or don't give you the freedom that I really wanted, so I really never got into it.

But not Picaboo.

I loved how easy it was to use (although they give you a virtual tour on how to use their software before you start) and you can choose to either keep their templates or completely start from scratch. I did a combination of both and was able to make a 500 pic scrapbook in about an HOUR---that's how easy it is to use!

Here's a few pics to show you how mine came out:

Back Cover on Left. Front Cover on Right.

Your desktop will look like this and you can choose your templates and backgrounds from your left and pictures from the bottom.


It gives you a great view of what your scrapbook will look like printed.


They have a TON of really cute backgrounds to choose from (both kid-friendly and adult.)


Their photo layouts makes everything super easy to put together.


Or you can come up with your own photo layouts--it's completely your choice!


Then, I was BLOWN AWAY when it came in the mail! The quality was EXCELLENT. The images were crisp and sharp. The packaging was beautiful, and I was also pleasantly surprised that it was bigger than I thought it was going to be! But most importantly my mother-in-law LOVED it. She kept asking me how I did it and kept telling me how talented I was! LOL. She never has to know, right?....... :)


Have you given online scrapbooking a-go?

  1. That is awesome. I have been wanting something like this, but wasn't sure where to start looking. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to check this out. I have 12 years of scrapbooking to get done. Do you know if you can just print scrapbook pages to add to a binder?

  2. I'm not sure. I don't think so--but then again I really wasn't really looking, sorry.
