Creating the Perfect Personalised Christmas Photo Book

Our designers are here to help you create a unique personalised Christmas photo book, you’ll want to share again and again. With Christmas right around the corner, take to your camera roll and create an the perfect gift documenting your family’s adventures! Today, Snapfish designer Alena Musso shares tips on choosing just the right embellishments for a personalised photo book your family and friends will love.

TIP 1: Layer embellishments to create a one-of-a-kind design.


Layering a type embellishment over a shape gives your photo book personalised pizzazz! Here, we paired the “Joy to the world” embellishment with the medallion. The yellow-on-red colour combo makes the text really pop, too.

TIP 2: Make a statement with just a couple embellishments per page.


When it comes to embellishments, you’re allowed to be selective. Since we really want to showcase those special moments with your family and friends, select one or two embellishments that will compliment your photos without overwhelming your layout. Using too many designs can make your book look too busy or (gasp!) outdated.

TIP 3: Skim the collection before making your selection.


There are SO many embellishments to choose from—where to start? Here are some of our favourites for Christmas, but you aren’t limited to just those. You can get creative and use a simple ribbon to frame the edge of the page, or get inspiration from our embellishment ideas page.

We’ve also created these photo book ideas pages to give you some inspiration!
