Baxter Pointe Villa in print

by brae  

Last month, I received a coupon from World Market for a free 8" x 8" photo book with 20 pages from Shutterfly.  I did some upgrades and ended up spending a little cash, but I now have a lovely hardcover book all about Baxter Pointe Villa.

The quality is wonderful, and I could certainly see myself making more of these for my other builds.

You can choose different layout pages and add text if you want.  I made mine with only photos.

I even included a photo of Baxter, for whom the Villa is named.  :]

I've been working on getting the Villa back to its former glory after the Yes paste failed under the kitchen wallpaper.


Here's the new aquarium for the dividing wall between the living room and kitchen.  :D

More on this to come...

This is such a brilliant way to showcase your builds easily -- like to take them to visit relatives and things. :)

What a great book! When are you going to start publishing the details of your builds (in book format) so we can buy them as tutorial/reference books!?!?!?

I made a book recording Somerset House which I love. Each year I produce a book for the previous years blogs, I have 6 of them, not sure how long I will do it, but it's a record for me to pass on. Plus I enjoy reading back to see how I have changed the things I do.

What a wonderful idea! I've often wondered, as a newbie into this miniature pastime, where "old houses" go. I think this is an amazing way to capture the process, which after all, is what this is all about!

This is a great idea -- nice way to showcase one's work! (and another great excuse to get a better camera *insert maniacal laugher here*)

This is a really cool idea. I have lots of photos on my hard drive - would be so much nicer to have them printed out. =0)

My family are big fans of Shutterfly. The books are wonderful quality, and the customization options are almost limitless, so each book is one's own creation. It's a great idea to use these this way! I really like the kitchen renovation photo. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade... you made the mess into a terrific mini scene. I like the range hood dangling from the wiring. That is what I would have done in full scale.

What a wonderful little book! I have wanted to do that for some of my stories... the shorter ones ! LOL! But I have never sat down to figure out how it is done! It is a bit nerve wracking to see Baxter Point Villa undergoing so much "change" ! Didn't you only finish it a couple of years ago? The fish tank looks Awesome as usual!

What a fabulous book and a great way to keep a record of projects. If I ever finish a project I would love to do this. Great idea.
