theavidpen + the foodie | Artifact Uprising

For 2015, I decided to do a photo book to commemorate some of the memories I’ve made on both theavidpen and on my foodie blog thelifeandtimesofafoodie. Since I share my favorite moments via my Instagram feed I knew I needed a book that would show them off at their very best. Artifact Uprising offers Instagram friendly photo books, so I decided to try them out.

Before starting the book and divided the photos for my book into categories.

  • Art
  • Entertainment
  • Fashion
  • Foodie
  • Holidays
  • Travel

Instagram friendly

1| Select the Instagram Friendly Books option from their photo book selection.


2| Select a size. I went with the 5.5 X 5.5 because the images resolution became a problem with the large size.


3| Pick the layout for your title page.


4| Time to add some photos. You can upload photos from your device, (if you’re creating it on your iPad or iPhone) VSCO, Instagram, Galleries and Dropbox.

5| All you have to do is drag and drop your photo onto the title page. Then add your text. You can customize the fonts from their selection and drag the text box to the location you want.

6| Pick the layout for your pages. I went with the largest 1 image layout since the book is 5.5″ by 5.5″ and anything else would look too small.

7| Not planning on creating your project at all at once? Just remember to Save/Exit
