Mother's Day book design made easy

What better pressie could you give than a book full of photos of mum working her magic, created by the one's she loves the most? And it's this easy:


1. Schedule in 2-4 hours to design

Set a timeline and add it to your calendar or diary so you commit and make the design as easy and enjoyable as possible. Set days and times for reviewing your photo library, editing any photos, producing the first draft and most importantly the order deadline.


2. Set a target of 40-60 photos

Keep it manageable by setting limits on your book's number of photos and pages. We suggest a few hero pages with 1 or 2 photos per spread, some pages with 3 to 4 photos per page and a total of around 30 - 50 pages. Of course you can add more if you have the time and more great photos to include.


The next step is selecting the most meaningful shots, the one's where she's working her mumma magic, like ... a pregnant belly shot, cradling her newborn, getting silly with the kids, cooking or caring for everyone, hanging out on a family holiday or squished in a group hug. You get the picture! Be sure they're in focus and she's looking happy too.


The most important selection is the photo for the cover. A photograph of mum surrounded by all her kids is a great choice for a printed cover. But if she loves decorating your home, a linen cover in a colour that blends with your living room, embossed with WE LOVE YOU, might be more her style.


3. Make it personal with words from her inner circle

Ask the kids to contribute a fave photo with mum or a few words about why they love her. The older kids might prefer to type their message, while a handwritten note  with pencil sketch of mum from the young'uns will tug at her heart strings. Give them a deadline or organise a colouring-in session so you don't have to chase them up. And don't forget to add it to your schedule.


Template designs

4. Use our Quickbook or template designs

Our Geo quickbook has stylish backgrounds that are perfect for a Mother's Day book and for the fastest, easiest design that always looks great, choose from the hundreds of templates in the Layouts Panel. Our hot tip: Make sure you check the Spreads check box for the most contemporary designs.

5. Order by the deadline

Don't miss our Mother's Day order deadlines. If you don't think you'll make it don't despair. Maybe she'd enjoy the process of making a photo book herself so buy a Gift Voucher instead. And if she's been keen to get all the family photos sorted out but never seems to get the time, get in touch with one of the expert photo organisers and book designers in our new Photo Book Services Directory.


Presenting her book in a matching Clamshell box topped with a personalised Mother's Day card would create the ultimate gift package, and we can promise that when she sees it for the first time, and realises that it's made with love by the one's she loves the most, the joy she'll feel will be immeasurable.
