Well Michael's gave us the chance to try out MiDesign @ Michael's - - so fun! There are two different sides to it - - the Photo Creations or the Custom Invites - be sure to explore both - I know I did. Right now they have some super deals going on, so jump on that!
Let's talk Photo Creations first - - I made a photo book for my Grandparents - - they didn't have any current pictures of all their great-grandkids together, so that was my goal:
Sometimes putting together a book can seem overwhelming - placing and arranging all the pictures and stories, etc. I made mine super simple -- the first few pages and the last page were pictures of the group of kids.
And then in the middle of the book, each child had a 2-page spread with a headshot and then a pulled out shot. The only text in the book were the names of the kids. I let the pictures speak for themselves.
Now, on to the custom card side - - I made my Christmas Cards using a Photo Folders card called "Merry and Bright" - again, the quality is amazing. The card is thick and the colors are vivid - everything you want in a card. And I really enjoyed that lots of their designs to choose from were ones I hadn't seen before.
Big thanks to Michael's and MiDesign - be sure to check them out!
I was given the photo book and cards to review, but all opinions are my own.
