Around here - Grab your free PDF Cheat Sheet for turning your digital photos into a Photo Book

Around here it's been extremely hot in Brisbane and the air conditioner has been on night and day.  Last night our power went out for over 2.5 hours so it was pitch black inside and outside and all I needed was 3 minutes to heat up my yummy dinner I had thawed out during the day.

It would have been better if it went off during the day as you could walk around and see where you are walking or mop the floors or clean the bathrooms.  Lucky for me I had charged up my power bank for my phone during the week so I could keep my phone going.

The funny thing was I was chatting to my friend on the phone who lives 2 hours away at the Gold Coast and after about 15 minutes her power went out as well.  Her power came back on not too long after however mine didn't come back on about 8.30 pm when I was able to heat up my dinner and get back to watching Emily in Paris which I have been enjoying.

During the week I created a PDF Cheat Sheet on how to go about making a photo book and getting your digital files off your phones and computer.  In this day and age everybody takes so many images probably mostly on our iPhones and that's where they stay.  If you have taken a holiday, or grown wonderful veggies or cook really yummy meals and have taken photos of them it's worth while making a photo book.

Often we don't know how to get started so this little Cheat Sheet should help you.  It can seem daunting given the amount of photos most of us take these days however just pick one subject or one holiday and go from there.

If you would like my free PDF Cheat Sheet head over to my website Kathy Aylward Photo and subscribe to receive your download.  Feel free to tell your family and friends as the more the merrier to preserve those precious memories, after all you took the photos in the first place to remember the moment.

A few years ago I made a little Photo Book of our first veggie garden at our old house and this garden brought me so much joy.  The kids were so little and my sister came over and we set it all up.  It was the most productive veggie garden just two 1200mm x 1200mm boxes. [4'x4'].  The cherry tomato bush gave us so many tomatoes I used to take them in for the kindy teaches and they said they were the best tomatoes they have tasted.  I love being able to look back through this photo book to these lovely memories.

I've participated in years of different photo projects and here's just a few photo books I've made.  Week in the Life photo books and Yearly Photo Books.


  1. I love printed photo books. They are beautiful, easy to store, and make such wonderful gifts too! Sorry to hear about your power loss. Good thing your phone was charged up!

    1. Yes our phones are our life line and my battery doesn't last that long so lucky I was prepared. Have a good week.

  2. Woah! I am beyond excited to see you have a website, Kathy, and that you may be offering an online class! It's such an elegant classy site, and I hope your business does really well. If only you were in the UK ... I'd happily have signed up for A Day in the Life (brilliant idea) for my DD and her family. You go, girl!
