PRINT your GIFT....

I have been thinking lately about the perfect gift. I was teaching in Seattle last weekend and I held up one of my photo albums and I said "THIS IS THE PERFECT GIFT."


Make your gift something that has meaning. We give so many gifts and buy, buy, buy. Imagine if we took the time to print our our photos and put them in a photo album, put them in a photo frame, or placed them on a magnet to put on our refrigerator. 




To me... this is the ULTIMATE gift. This one is REAL. It is timeless and a keepsake. Who does not love looking at photos and seeing the memories that they bring back? Photos evoke feelings within us. 



To me... this is the GOLD. The gift that will be treasured. So with this in mind, I wanted to share with you what I have been doing.


If you are looking for a GREAT gift to print your photos at home, then it is this printer. It is my go to large format printer, the Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer.


This was a framed gift that I printed to give my daughters. Photos always make the best gifts!!!



I created gifts by printing photos and putting them in books. This is the TC PHOTO FLIP albums. I simply printed the photos.


This is the Canon SELPHY CP910 Wireless Compact Photo Printer that is at my Teresa Collins end cap at Joann Fabric and Craft stores. I love it because it's GOLD-yes, but I love how easy it is to wireless print amazing photos up to 4x6 from my camera media card and and my phone.



I wanted to share my photo book book that I made this past month with photos that I printed.


Simply take your adhesive and place it on the backside of your photo. I used my Teresa Collins Xyron Mega Runner to place the photos on each page of the flip book. 


I printed each of these photos 4x6 and cropped each of them smaller as needed. 





So it's NOT too late. Think about the GIFT that has meaning and will be cherished.
