  • Constance Nelson

    I like the Shutterfly Harvest Hues photo book template. I love the neutral tones and the nrandom arrangement of the photos.

  • Jessica L’Heuruex

    I love the Rock On template – I’m a sucker for the black background – it simply makes pictures pop!

  • M Blalock

    I like the ABC’s template the best!

  • Kat

    Modern Portfolio!

  • Chris

    Hmm. It’s a toss up between Modern Black and Happiness Is…

  • Nicole Hillstead

    I love the Confetti Splash! great colors :)

  • Belinda Penaloza

    I really like the custom option, however, of the pre-made templates, Confetti Splash warms my heart.

  • Kerry

    I really like the “Hit the Road” template – it would be perfect for the big road trip I just took with my husband, and two cats!

  • Bonnie

    I like the modern black–sort of makes you feel like you’re ina dark room watching home videos.
    Here’s hoping!

  • Jenny Bolech

    Wow they’ve got a lot of great new options since i last made a book! I really love the Family Memories template :)

  • Erica

    Hmmm…Probably Modern Black or Versatile Classics. It really would depend on the purpose/content of the book, though.

  • cassandra

    My favorite template has to be the basic black. :) Though it was hard to choose!

  • Samantha Kramer

    Would most likely use the custom option – but love the “planes/trains” as a template. I made a photo book last year for my folks when they came to visit me in NYC, documenting their trip. This would be perfect for anyone else visiting!!

  • Maria

    I like the Travel Snapshots template — it’d go great with all our travel photos :)

  • Margaret S.

    Having been looking at these for wedding books, I love the “Oh Baby Girl” template. For other photos I really like the look of the Versatile Classics.

  • Jana Demetral

    I like the Natural Neutrals! So perfect!

  • Kaela Champlin

    I love the “travel snapshots” custom path style template. The backgrounds look like old maps. This would make a really beautiful travel photo journal.

  • Kris

    Modern Portfolio – because when you tell someone that you make stuff you’d better be ready to show them pictures.

  • Lisa

    Hit the Road would be perfect for all my travel photos. I also love Modern Portfolio for day to day pictures.

  • Erich Campbell

    I like the Black and White backdrop style, but the ModernBlack is nice as well. Knowing me, though, I’d want to go full custom. Here’s hoping! ;)

  • Audie

    I like the Modern Black, but I really love the colors and patterns of Oh So Mod and Good Times. I guess it depends on what the content is.

  • carolyn c

    I love the Wine and Chocolate one.

  • SeamstressErin

    I like the modern wedding template. The fleur de lis patterns are super pretty!

  • Kylie D

    Modern Portfolio for sure- it really allows the photo to stand out and make a statement on its own. :)

  • LeeAnn Wilmot

    Oh, I think I like Rock On the best, but I better post my comment now because if I look again, I will change my mind because I sure like them all!
