I recently bought a credit to print a photobook- but am not sure what topic/subject to do it. Please help!

My choices/ideas:

- My studies in Egypt
- My studies in France
- General: Friends & Family
- Childhood
- Relationship
- College

The one dilemma I have with doing either of my studies abroad is that I also saved a lot of papers etc from that and think it may be better suited to a traditional scrapbook, where I can incorporate that.

Honestly, what I have the most pictures of is my relationship with my boyfriend, since we traveled to Boston, NY etc... still I am wondering if that would be prudent, and what everyone else here would recommend?

Thanks so much!

With the studying abroad ephemera, you can always scan those elements and use them in your photobook...just a thought. Also, look at how many pages you have money for, and see what would suit that best. If you have 10 pages to work with, one of you and your bf might be too much. If you have 30 pgs to work with, you might want to do one with ALL your friends, family, etc... I would probably start with Childhood...then if you decide you like the books, you can do another one with another subject, going in chronological order. That's just how my brain works though! Good luck!

I have vintage smurf sheets and do embroidery and stenciling...wanna swap?

You could dedicate it to traveling, or even just your favorite trip/trips. chronologically is a good place to start too. Or you can just get your favorite pictures and make a basic "everything" book to start, that way if you decide not to make more, you at least have a little bit of everything.

I had a similar problem to you when I decided to make my brother a scrapbook/photo book of our tour around America.

As we are both photographers I decided to make a 12x12 photobook with each page/ 2pages on a theme (so the major areas/cities we visited covered 2pages) and then make a 11.5x12 scrapbook sheet from the goodies we collected in each of those areas and slot it in between the pages (i cut down the side of the page holding it into the book so it didn't stick out the side

It worked out great as we were able to take out the scrapbook pages when showing elderly relatives who loved the photobook without the busy scrapbook pages. And we have to amazing memory's that are held in fine by the nature of a bound book (think of how a bookmark works) with ALL the pictures printed on high quality photo paper!

Good luck
