Have you heard? Photo displays can remedy a relationship that’s on the rocks! At least, so they say…
But it’s easy to see (quite literally, actually) where such a claim could hold some water. When couples (or anyone, for that matter) look at pictures of fun times that were had together and experiences shared, it’s challenging not to feel a little mushy. Even in the toughest of times.
Assuming you believe that there is some truth behind this, understanding the importance of tangibly saving memories with the likes of different photo display ideas is a snap.
And no, this is not in reference to digital albums on Facebook that are a dime a dozen. But rather something that can be put on a shelf or have pages turned — perhaps while under a blanket on the couch, snuggled up beside your main squeeze.
And maybe (just maybe!), the time spent together to create your masterpiece that so beautifully preserves memories of the past, will become one of the special moments cherished together in the future. (Think along the lines of the two of you piecing together a scrapbook over a bottle of wine, swapping “remember when” stories — who knows what unforgettable antics may ensue!)
Regardless of the experience(s) you’re preserving, each moment is priceless in its own way. From a quiet first-date picnics in a park, to the ultimate ‘trust fall’ together out of a skydiving plane, or the arrival of a new family member (maybe thanks to that honeymoom scrapbook you made, huh?) — these epic milestones in life deserve the very best photo displays.
Here are five photo display ideas to help you keep your memories
safe and sound ‘til the end of time.
Coffee Table Photo Book: Make a classy photo book using a digital service like Artifact Uprising or Shutterfly. Easily upload photos, then effortlessly plug them into a pre-designed layout or create your own personalized one. Add captions and narration. The finished, hardcover book will be shipped to you within days. And for even more inspiration, be sure to check out the countless other unique photo ideas available on these types of sites!
Scrapbook: It takes time to craft it, but there’s nothing like a handmade, old-fashioned scrapbook. Arts ‘n’ crafts stores all over the country have supplies and workshops ready and waiting. Plus a nice, nostalgic sit-down sesh to creatively piece together your memories does the heart good!
Personalized phone cases: Forget the calendar and coffee mug. These days, the must-do trend to show off your photos is with your phone instead. But not on the screen! Kodak Gallery and Shutterfly both have great photo display ideas for personalizing phone cases.
Memory Jars: For the person whose walls are already overflowing with framed photos, why not keep time in a bottle? Fill a jar with cleverly-placed souvenirs and background photos from a beloved trip or adventure. A hot glue gun will work wonder to help you eloquently secure your timeless treasures into place.
Creative Photo Displays: If you have some wall space that could use some love, try something outside of a traditional frame to hang. Browsing through Pinterest for some inspiration is a sure-fire way to find the perfect way to present your favorite pics, in a style that is uniquely you. (Think twine-and-clothespins, memory boards, canvas prints…the possibilities are endless!)
