Friends, today I’m sharing a very fun project that I recently worked on with Canon hdAlbum! I made my own photo album coffee table book with photos from our recent trip to Kauai,  Hawaii.

The process was simple, the photos gorgeous (up to 2,400 dots-per-inch (DPI), the book is affordable, and what a great idea to make these books for holiday gifts, or like me, as a keepsake and coffee table book!

This was my first time to make a Canon hdAlbum, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. It has superior color, so many design options while you’re putting it together, and I am impressed with the high quality binding.

Follow your inspiration.

I hope I inspired you to do something with your last trip’s memories, by putting them into a beautiful album, or taking photos from the last year and making gifts for the holidays. I love the idea of sports books, family vacations, “a year of” book, favorite photos taken over the last year. What a great idea to make a new book every year! Next, I want to make a book for this trip, and this trip, and my recent Downton Abbey experience in London!
