Kylie - It was just my son and I when he was born and my husband came into our lives 5 months later and has been his dad ever since. Is there anyway to edit the wording just a little bit to make it fit our story?

Courtney - If I purchase this now and use blurb as you recommend to print, do you know an approximate turn around time? I am due 9/12…

stacey - if you purchase the hands free option, i send you a detailed list of the information and pictures i’ll need to put your book together for you! the book ends up being 22 pages. thanks for your interest!

Drina - I would like to get one of these made for my son. I am a bit away from needing it, but my question is similar to another. Do you gift a list of photos or questions to get the info needs to personalize this? Also, how many pages is it? Thanks.

Kathy Koenig - I ordered the template for On The Day I Was Born PS and I have not received it. I paid the $35.00 and my receipt # is 3644-8311-0652-1820.

Jenn - Hi,

I have created the Blurb book using the template I purchased from you, however, there is no option to have a spine the color of the front and back images. Did you have a white spine, or how do I get the spine to match the orange?


sally - Hi there

I am looking to make a year book for my son but he is not becoming a big brother next year. If I purchase the template can I still make amendments to the text?

Thanks in advance.

Richelle - I’m not very familiar with photo shop. I have Photo shop CS6 which template should I download?

Ann Seidel - Would you be able to customize/adjust the text a bit for an adoption? tx

Callie - Hello, I have the photos all added to my template and ready to print but am having trouble with Blurb. Any step by step directions on how to best get this printed? I have NO idea what I am doing :(


alexandra knight - I would love to buy the $125 option and have you make it for a friend of mine’s daughter as a gift – I would like it to be a surprise but is there a “list” that you can give me of pictures and event images that you need to make it super special – I can give her that list and then hand the images over to you? Let me know if that is an option – thanks so much and It is a darling idea! Super creative! x alex

Nancy Romano - I’m trying to make my granddaughter a book but am having technical difficulty – actually, I’m sure the difficulty is me! I got the template for the book and the free 30 day trial of PS last night. I couldn’t figure out how to get the pictures on the page so decided to wait until this morning to try again. Now I can’t find the templates! My order # is 1080837. Please help me if you are able. I’m low tech in a high tech world! Thank you!

Reima - Hello,

So is the hard cover book included in the $35 options or just the template? Because I can see myself doing this and putting it together but, how do I print out the pages and put them in the book?

stacey - one template makes as many books as you like!

Laura - Same question as above – can the template be used to make more than one book or would I need to purchase a template for each of my children? Thanks

Amber Huizar - Hi,
I was wondering if I bought one template, am I able to make 2 separate books, or do I need to purchase 2 templates?


Kitty - Can this template be used for multiples or is it designed only for single births?

Kindi Wahlstrom - I LOVE this! I do have 1 question for you, can I make multiple books from 1 template or do I need a separate template for each child? Thanks!

marilyn - This is a great idea! If you create the entire book and then have it printed elsewhere, you

Niti - Hi,
I loveee this book and as much as I love creating memories on my own for my baby I don’t think I can replicate this or get anywhere closer! I have a blog too but was just wondering that if I request you to make the book (the $125 option) would I be able to make copies? If so, how much would it cost me?
I’d greatly appreciate a prompt reply as my boy turned one on Jan 30 and I still hvnt made his yr book :)

Thanks again,
