Free Photo Books- Photo Thursdays



There are lots of free photo books out there to be claimed today! I love photo books, it is how I scrapbook. It makes things so easy and quick. They look beautiful and sleek and are perfect for display. 


Ritz Pix is offering a free 6x6 white linen book with 20 pages until 10 PM eastern tonight. Only pay $1.99 handling if you choose to pick up the book or $3.99 to have it shipped directly to you. 


Walgreens is offering a free 4.5×6 photo book  (brag book sized) until Saturday June 25th when you use the code BRAG at checkout. It will cost $2.99 to have it shipped to you. 


Picaboo is offering buy one get one free classic photo books with the code BGJUNCB until June 30th. 


What should I make with my photo book?
I can't lie, I have made more than 50 photo books in my lifetime. I have made one for each year of our marriage, I made one for my daughter's first year of life, I made one of wedding photos for my parents, my in-laws, my sister and my sister-in-law. I have written story books for my child and one of my favorites was a simple idea that was called "Who Loves Sofie?" featuring pictures of her aunts and uncles on the different pages. This time around, I am making an ABC book, each pages featuring items that start with a different letter. In my experience Grandma's LOVE these books as presents, considering making your mom a brag book full of pictures of her grandchildren. 


Is it worth the shipping price?
Yes! Photo books are a HOT thing right now. To a get a book for only the price of shipping is a GREAT deal!


What are your tips for my book?

  • The photo book should warn you if you have spelled something wrong, or if your image isn't a high enough resolution. If is says your image isn't high enough resolution, trust it and replace it with another image. If you use a image without a high enough resolution it will come or blurry or grainy. 
  • DOUBLE and triple check any spelling. 
  • Give it sometime. When there are free books to be claimed, a lot of the sites run slow. 

If you have any questions, let me know, and have fun creating your photo books!

Wow! Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to bookmark this page now so I can get to work on one. I've never made a photo book - a calender but never a book. Thanks again!
