Unibind's Photobook Creator puts YOU in the driver's seat.

No more searching for the perfect album to accompany your memories. You know can make the perfect album to fit exactly what you need. Combine GlueArts adhesives and you've got yourself a surefire plan!!

Designer Ania Lexander made a special album that is not only eye-catching but personalized for her families camping trip this year. How special is this?!

Camp Logbook 
Designed by: Ania Lexander

I decided to turn my Unibind photobook into a logbook for the next family gathering occuring this weekend. The whole extended family will be gathered at one place for the entire weekend to celebrate my mother in law and grandmother in law..they decided to put together their birthdays, rent some cabins (at a place called Herdla, hence the title for the logbook) and have a huge celebration. It will be a memorable weekend for sure, so I have prepared this logbook in advance so it's ready to be filled with tales from the weekends experiences, hopefully to be journaled by everybody attending.


Glue Arts: Glueglider Pro - PermaTac, Extreme adhesive squares, U Cut it 3d foam
Scenic Route: Patterned papers + ledger-papers, chipboard and paper die cut
Elle's Studio: Tag
Crate Paper: letters
Unibind Photobook Creator

Prepare your papers. I decided to go with my old favorites Scenic Route. The patterned papers were cut into lettersize (8.5x11"), and the ledger-papers were cut into 6x8". Two ledger-papers for every sheet of patterned paper (front and back) - with room for journaling and adhering memorabilas and photos.

I fit in 12 sheets of patterned paper into the book before binding it.

Gather carefully, put the sheets into the book and put it into the Unibind-machine and just wait for the red light to turn green. Take it out, stack it on the table to make sure the papers are well into the glue and let it cool on the rack for another minute or two. 
For the title on the book I cut out strips from the U Cut it 3d-foam and added the letters upon it. This works swell when the letters are square so the foam won't show underneath/in between the letters. Add the die cut to the tag with more 3d-foam.

For the chipboard-pieces I used Extreme Adhesive Squares.
