Sorrento Scrap Book Complete

My latest Shutterfly book, this one a 25-page digital scrapbook covering Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, including Positano, Amalfi Town, Ravello and Capri, is complete and ordered.

It was mostly free thanks to an offer from United Airlines, just had to pay for the 5 extra pages, but these were 20% off of 20% off, thanks to sales and coupon codes.

The one frustration...Shutterfly's new Custom Path is a great interface and super easy to use, however, not all styles, which of course seems irrelevant in a digital scrapbook, offer a full bleed cover, which is important to us digital scrapbookers.

Their help page on Digital Scrapbooks said to use the Everyday Classics style, but that one doesn't have a full-page picture cover....maybe it did at one point, but it doesn't now.  If you use New Custom Path and want a full bleed cover, use the Modern Black style, and there is an option for a full-page picture cover with text, and if you leave the text blank, you will get a full page cover.
This is only an issue for the front cover.  Other styles have full bleed on the back cover.

I'm glad I finally figured this out, because although I made this book with the Classic Custom Path, this option is supposed to go away in January 2012.  Plus, I like the interface of the New Custom Path much better!

Photo books are the perfect gift for any occasion.

Pages in the book are made with the digital scrapbook templates and kits of Jen Maddocks, Maya de Groot and Anna Aspnes.
