Normal Day Album

Treasure those memories with the Normal Day album

The Normal Days Are The Best Ones

I designed a mini album around one of my favorite poems, just for recording those everyday photos that are so precious. This customizable 8x8 album is perfect to cherish those memories of a relationship, family, and more, and you'll be done in no time!

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”

― Mary Jean Irion

Our Goal: Create An Album That Reflect Your Everyday

Everyday is a treasure and just like the poem says: 'Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are', we are going to spend sometime reflecting on what makes your everyday great! In no time at all, you'll have a fully finished album that you can gift to someone! Simple enough to complete in a few hours, the album is also flexible enough for you to add your own personal touch. Give your friends, family, or YOURSELF a personalized gift, lovingly crafted by your hands. Here's a look at the simple .PSD file for one of the spreads:

What To Expect in Class

We have split this class into 2 sections: The Album Class, where you will create the digital files for your unique album, and The Assemble The Album section, which walks you through the process of printing and assembling your album.
