Do It Yourself

YOU are the best writer for your stories.

Check in regularly for my upcoming e-books loaded with ideas and how-to instructions for your own stories!

As I continue to create resources for my do-it-yourself visitors, printing resources are available right how.

Electronic Book Publishing

Heritage Makers is a self-publishing book resource with beautiful products worthy of your personal stories. I endorse this provider because they offer:

  • archival quality
  • simple design
  • many words on a page, for longer stories
  • as many photos as you choose to include
  • graphic design elements, if you choose
  • varying print sizes
  • various book sizes
  • low-cost replacement of damaged books
  • BEST OF ALL, your family can order many books! Unlike scrapbooking, one book yields many copies.

With Heritage Makers, you create a free account and work at your own pace. There is no commitment to buy until you complete the book design, enabling you to work at your own pace. My website for electronic printing and archival scrapbooking materials is http://www.heritagemakers.com/rosemaryalva

Archival Scrapbooking

Heritage Makers has purchased Creative Memories, the scrapbooking products I myself have loved and used for years! From the same site, you can create an account and purchase scrapbooking products to preserve your original photos in an archival album. No more faded, glued-in, or yellowing photos and documents; your personal mementos are safe for years to come.

These scrapbooks have removable pages. I am especially fond of this feature when a new photo or document comes my way and belongs, chronologically, right in the middle of an album. When this happens, just release the binding and add a page. Your album can continue to expand without seeming out of order.
