Just sharing some shots of my Disney photo books with you. I made these as Christmas presents for both sets of grandparents of our Alaskan cruise on the Disney Wonder this past June. I wasn’t able to fit in all of the photos I wanted within 100 pages, so I opted to do a two-volume set. 200 pages of Disney fun? Yes!
Many, many times I’ve gotten emails and inquiries from readers asking where to print a book that is over 100 pages. While companies like Mixbook and Blurb can easily accommodate a high page count book, another option is to make a series of books. Yes, it will likely add more to the budget, however if there’s a great promo going on, it may not be that different in the end. Plus you get the freedom to let your photos breathe a bit and not feel like you have to cram 50 photos into the last 5 pages of your book. I printed this particular set of books with MyPublisher. I got the lay flat upgrade and also opted for the heavier deluxe paper.
I especially had a lot of photos to choose from because we had elected to buy the unlimited Shutters photo package which gave us a disc full of all the photos we had taken by the ship’s professional photographers. With all four of Photo Book Baby’s grandparents coming along to experience his first Alaskan trip we definitely wanted to have lots of family photos taken. I have lots of tips on how to maximize your Shutters photography package including how to best get those coveted Disney character photos!
It’s so much fun to relive our trip with Photo Book Baby when we look through these photo books together!
By the way, the clip art and embellishments used here were purchased from a digital scrapbooking site. If you see something you really like, let me know and I’ll do my best to look up where I got it. There are several different kits I used mostly just for the cover and a few interior pages.
Anyone make any vacation photo books recently?
Oh wow, this is great stuff!!!
How did you create the porthole picture frames?
It’s from a digital scrapbooking kit I bought. If you are interested, I can look up where I purchased it, just let me know.
I would love to know where you got the kit. I am looking for predesigned Disney pages to make a book from a trip in October. I used to use Creative Memories predesigned pages but now have a Mac and can’t use them. I am not really creative enough to make pages from scratch but I am starting to think I may have to do that this summer. Just overwhelmed with starting since I am used to dragging and dropping and then just changing things here and there. Thanks!
Hi Tricia, I didn’t use a Disney kit per se, but I went with any nautical or sea themed kits on Scrapbookgraphics.com
I think if you search “sea” or “beach” on that site you’ll find what I used.

Hope that helps!
