It’s safe to say this year has been one that none of us would have expected, leaving us with lasting memories of a truly unprecedented period of time. Throughout the year, we’ve encouraged you to stay focused on the small, happy moments that have brought joy amongst the uncertainty, and you responded by sharing all kinds of beautiful photos that have depicted your year.
Now, we’re calling on you to round up those special memories to create a lasting reminder of the times we’ve experienced throughout 2020. Perhaps you still celebrated a big milestone throughout lockdown or you took some extra time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures with family and friends? All you need to get started are some photos of your 2020 highlights and the CEWE Creator Software! Read on for some of our favourite ideas for your 2020 Yearbook.
Time Capsule Yearbook
For anyone who hasn’t experienced the events of this year first-hand, it’s tricky to fully comprehend the difference in our daily lives. Try creating a CEWE PHOTOBOOK time capsule to give as a gift or be discovered in future that summarises all the events that unfolded in 2020. Include photos of what you’ve been up to throughout the year as well as text to provide more detail and to add your own thoughts and feelings. If you’re planning to leave it undiscovered for many years, why not insert screenshots of news headlines to truly depict this period of time? Plus, if you’re doing a DIY project at home, you could even choose a CEWE PHOTOBOOK in a smaller size that’s perfect for hiding away in a little nook or cranny!
Your Very ‘2020’ Shots
We’ve seen some unfamiliar sights this year – empty streets, stockpiled toilet paper, socially distanced queues to enter shops and an abundance of face masks. If you’ve been documenting your year in photos, here’s your perfect excuse to collate them and create a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Just take a look through your camera roll and we’re sure you’ll find plenty of images representative of this year and the changes we’ve lived through! While you’re at it, why not enter your images into the CEWE Photo Award for the chance to win a share of prizes?
Once again, a 2020 yearbook is a wonderful way to reflect on this year’s events – both as you create your photo book and for many years to come as you look back at it. For a sturdy and eye-catching memento, we recommend a Large Landscape CEWE PHOTOBOOK that’s big enough to showcase your images yet compact enough to sit nicely on a bookshelf or coffee table.
Adventures with Your Loved Ones
Chances are, you’ve had a lot more time to spend with your nearest and dearest this year, meaning you’ll have made all kinds of memories together in the process. Whether you’ve explored the great outdoors or stayed within your own home, there’s plenty of joy to be found in the little moments spent with those closest to us – literally!
A yearbook full of memories with someone special also makes the perfect gift. To complement your photos, you could annotate each moment and detail what made you happy and what you’re thankful for. Your special person is bound to love the care and attention you’ve taken, as well as the gift of being able to look back on all your precious memories from the year. Don’t forget, we have plenty of brand-new yearbook templates for you to choose from in our Creator Software, making it easy for you to create a beautiful photo book in just a few clicks.
A 2021 Scrapbook Template
After all, this year has made it difficult to go out and make new memories, so if you’re finding it tough to fill a whole yearbook, we’ve got the perfect idea to help you achieve the finished project in 2021. Our Creator Software gives you full creative freedom with your design, meaning you can customise your CEWE PHOTOBOOK however you like! This makes it perfect for creating your very own 2021 scrapbook that you can fill with written anecdotes, photo prints and meaningful items such as ticket stubs and invitations.
When you create your scrapbook in the CEWE Creator Software, we recommend looking through the ‘Scrapbook Design’, ‘Trends’ and ‘Yearbook’ sections of our Clipart library for some handy additions to your design. Add boxes and lines for you to write your own text and embellish your pages with pretty motifs.
Top tip – for pages that are easy to write on without smudging or bleeding, we love our True Matte paper!
Start Early! Prepare Your 2021 Yearbook
Before 2021 is underway, keep your yearbook in mind so that you can make sure you have plenty to fill it with in a year’s time. Our tips for getting prepared include making sure your phone or camera has plenty of storage available, collating your images in a special yearbook folder for easy access and – of course – taking lots of photos!
From the team at CEWE, we’d like to wish you a happy and healthy 2021 with plenty of special memories to reflect on.
