Our latest profile book is done! It's actually been done since October, but I'm just now getting around to posting it, as blogging has been a little on the back burner lately. For this profile book, I wanted to do something different than our first one. I loved our first book but felt like I wanted something a little cleaner and simpler this time around. I designed all the pages in photoshop then uploaded them to blurb to print the book. I loved the quality of their books last time around, so we went with them again and were not disappointed. Also, Silas is in this book, which significantly ups the cuteness factor.
I've had a lot of questions since posting our last profile book about where to find graphics and how to design the pages. If you are looking to design your own profile book, there are great fonts on dafont. You can also find tons of great graphics in their dingbats section. If you don't know how to use adobe programs like photoshop or illustrator, you could try picasa. It doesn't work for everything, but it allows you to make collages and create pages. I made most of our first book in that program before learning how to use photoshop.
