You know I make cards right? And I aspire to scrapbook but I haven't started yet! ZoomAlbum is a way for me to "scrapbook" without technically scrapbooking! I have seen these even before I started doing reviews here on my blog, on the many papercrafting blogs that I subscribe to. So you can say that I have always wanted to make some of these albums!
I made a mini album as a gift and I'll share the EASY process with you here:
When you first install the program from the CD (which is included with your kit), you'll see the above screen. The startup screen guides you through making your ZoomAlbum and if you need help, you can click on "Show me how".

It's very easy to make your album - all you do is select your photos and drag them into the position where you'd like them in the album, adjust their placement on the page, and add text if you like (which I did!) You also get to choose a photo as the album cover.
This is the screen you'll see while you're making your album.
The instructions are very easy to follow and are included on a sheet in the kit as well as on the back of the sticky paper that the photos get printed on, which make the interior of the book. Here's a photo of the supplies you get:

And here's a few shots of the finished product:
I hope the person who receives this album as a gift LOVES it! (I'm sure they will!)
All in all, the process for making a ZoomAlbum is very quick. It took a total of about 30 minutes from the time I started designing my album, to the finished result, and the majority of this time was to ensure the ink was dry and wouldn't smear.
I love ZoomAlbum even more now and will be making more to give as little gifts for any occasion!
