After the rush of the festive season and holidays spent snapping gorgeous photos of family, friends and special moments, the last thing you want to do is forget about those wonderful memories.
Follow these simple steps to organise those holiday snapshots and create a unique keepsake to proudly display your much-loved moments.
Your first step, if you haven’t already, is to get all those holiday photos into one spot. They might be located on your camera or phone, wherever they are, transfer them into one easy to find location on your computer.
To make it easier and quicker when creating your digital masterpiece, sort through your photos and divide them into easy to find folders.
Depending on your holiday activities this might include folders for events or special occasions like Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or Family Beach Holiday. You could also have a folder for all those other photos that don’t necessarily fit under one specific title.
Depending on the quantity of photos, you might like to be extra organised and divide them within the folders too. You could organise them into photos of people or places, or photos that are landscape or portrait. This is a great idea if you have a lot of photos to sort through. The more organised you are, the quicker and easier it will be to find the photos you want to use in your Create with kikki.K photo project.
Decide on which Create with kikki.K project will best display your holiday memories. Perhaps you’d like to turn them into a Calendar so that you can look at them every day, or maybe a Photobook would work better as an Album on your coffee table for loved ones to browse through whenever they like.
Notepads, Journals, Calendars or Photo books - decide on which medium you’d like and select this in the Create with kikki.K editor.
Now when the editor prompts you to add in photos you'll know exactly where to go to find them. You can add in an entire folder of photos or you can add in photos individually. Try to only select the photos you really think you’d like to use.
By adding in huge folders of photos, you’ll find this slows down the editor and makes the process take a little longer. You can avoid this by preselecting your photos for each project and, as above, transferring these into their own folder.
Now’s the fun part. Design, create and make a photo keepsake you love. Use the page layouts, themes, scrap-booking items and frames to add in the finishing touches and turn your creative masterpiece into something truly special.
A gorgeous photo keepsake also makes a bespoke gift for friends and family. If you holidayed with loved ones, why not order multiple copies so they can revisit and celebrate the memories too.
