I was once told that to cure a relationship on the rocks, couples should take a look back through their photo albums at all the fun times and experiences they have shared. Believing there is truth behind this, one of the most important things is saving and keeping those memories to have something to look back at.
I’m not talking about a Facebook album or Tumblr account, but something you can touch and maybe even turn the pages of while tucked under a blanket on the couch.
At Cloud 9 Living, it’s our hope that each experience gift you go on can be an added page to your scrapbook or make a frame on the wall. From a picture of billowing cheeks while skydiving to underwater shots while snorkeling to the helmet-clad family posing during a city segway tour; our experiences call for photo ops. In short, we hope you will cherish the memories forever. So, we’ve broken down five of our favorite ways to keep and display photos to be enjoyed by all.
Digital Photo Book: Make a glossy photo book using Shutterfly or a similar service. Once photos are uploaded, you can plug them into pre-designed layouts or into a personalized one. Captions and descriptions can easily be added to the photos, and the finished bound, hardback book will be shipped to you within days.
Scrapbook: It takes time, but there’s nothing like a handmade, old-fashioned scrapbook. Craft stores all over the country have supplies and workshops, plus sitting down and crafting your memories can be quite therapeutic!
Personalized phone cases: Forget the calendar and coffee mug, show off your photos on your phone instead. Because, lets face it, we use it 24/7 and everyone gets to see it. Kodak Gallery and Shutterfly both have great options for personalized phone covers.
Memory Jars: For the person whose walls are already overflowing with framed photos, create a capsule in a jar displaying souvenirs and photos from a trip or adventure. (Beach jar photo via Crafting Life)
Creative Photo Displays: Display photos at home, but think outside of a simple frame hung on the wall. After searching through Pinterest.
