Photo Books From Collage . com #Review #Sponsored

   A few weeks ago, I brought you a promo code offer for products from In return for posting, I had the opportunity to make two photo books of my own!
   The process seemed simple enough-upload your own photos or choose a site (like FB or Instagram) where you've already uploaded photos, then you can choose from those. The only thing I couldn't figure out was how to make a collage on a page like in their stock photo:

    I also couldn't figure out how to: 1. Personalize the front cover 2.Get a shape with the collage on the front cover. Other than that, the website was easy to navigate. I went ahead and chose photos from my Instagram account, because that's where I upload my bestest and favoritist photos!

       After you choose your photos, Collage . com automatically places them in order, but you can change the order if you choose. I was completely happy with this set-up:

Then, I went ahead and viewed what my book's collage cover would look like (while I was trying to figure out how to get a shape on there...but that failed....)

         Oh, and this shot shows you the different things you can do like change the filter on the pages, and pick a background for your pages ;)

    The products I got to pick out were: a 20 page 11.5"x8" hardcover photobook and a 8"x6" softcover photobook....and here they are:

      And each book came with a nifty invoice! 

     My favorite is the hardback book. Personally, I think it's a better gift because it has a hard cover as opposed to a soft cover (I also have kids which means my life requires me to look for sturdier items), but there's tons of other great gifts on the site *and* they always have great promos going on!!! So if you're looking for an easy gift option that allows you to memorialize moments, Collage . com is for you!!!
       Disclaimer: In exchange for a review, I was given two photo books. All thoughts and opinions of the product and process are my own!
