I use Creative Memories Storybook Creator 3 to build all of my digital scrapbooking pages - LOVE IT! If you have any questions about it or would like to purchase it - I would love to help you - I am a Creative Memories consultant. If you want to purchase this software - you can go to my CM website and purchase from there. I use a Canon Digital XSI to take pictures. LOVE IT as well!

Custom Album Covers

ALL-NEW to Creative Memories and we are PUMPED about them!!

You Create It Custom Albums allows you to personalize the cover of a favorite traditional scrapbook-style album. Use your favorite photos and designs to make your album cover stand out with a You Create It Custom Album.

You Create It Custom Albums feature a pebble textured laminate material, similar to the material used on our StoryBooks, and have the same high quality and features as our other 12x12 scrapbook albums. Custom albums are available with your choice of black or white material for the album’s spine and back cover.

You Create It Custom Albums will be available Sept. 1, 2011 and will retail for $49.00.

There will be three ways to create a custom album:

1) Full Photo Template:
Want to use a photo to fill the entire album cover? Go to the Digital Center, select the full-photo template, upload a photo, add any desired text, preview your coverset and you’re ready to order.

2) Predesigned Templates:
Our ready-made templates are a quick and easy way to complete your coverset. Go to the Digital Center and select one of the template choices. Then simply drag and drop your uploaded photo(s) into the photo openings and add any desired text. Preview your coverset and you’re ready to order.

3) Design it yourself:
If you’d like to create a cover that’s all your own, you can do so using StoryBook Creator Software (for PC) or sbcStudio Software (for Mac). Once you’ve purchased and installed the software, look for the “You Create It Custom Album” project option. When you’re finished creating your custom coverset, order via the Digital Center.


• Coverset
• 2 Straps

• Limited lifetime guarantee


• 12x12 size
• Photo-safe
• Custom design
• Pebble texture laminate material (similar to StoryBooks)

I am glad to help you if you have more questions - I LOVE this whole idea and I think you will too!

Ordering information

Once you’ve created and previewed your album cover, select white or black for the spine and back cover. Then, you can complete your purchase by choosing a Coverset only (pages not included), a Coverset plus one pack each of Scrapbook Pages and Page Protectors, or a Coverset plus one pack of Side-Loading Sleeves. Scrapbook Pages, Page Protectors and Side-Loading Sleeves are available in one pack of each when purchased with a custom album, if you need additional refills - I can help you with that!

Due to the custom nature of this product, orders for Custom Albums need to be placed via the Digital Center and will ship separately after they’re ready.

Shipping & Handling
Shipping and handling for You Create It Custom Albums is similar to the shipping charges for our Digital Center products, such as StoryBooks. Custom albums will ship separately from other Creative Memories products. Please see the shipping information on the Digital Center for details.
