We don’t know about you, but sometimes we struggle to remember what we had for breakfast, let alone what we did last year. That’s why we think it’s important to create beautiful photo products using all your favourite moments.
From filling a photo book with every little thing from the past 12 months to creating a calendar with a monthly reminder of what you were doing this time last year, there are a few things you can do to help you remember the best bits.
Here are 6 creative ways to make sure 2017 is a year you’ll never forget…
Make a year book
Create a photo book full of photos from the past year… it’s like your own personal year book! Choose your favourite moments and feature them all in your book. You could also scan mementoes from 2017 like plane tickets to add alongside your photos. We love doing this in chronological order so you can flick back on it by month.

Use our mosaic wall art layout
We have a brand new layout for wall art which allows you to feature between four and 81 photos on a mosaic grid. This is perfect for printing your Instagram feed and bringing your photos to life on your wall. You could also choose a particular theme like black and white photos from 2017 and print them all on one wall art.
Find out more about the new layout here.
Create a photo wall
Instead of sticking to just one wall art, create a series and display them in one corner of your home, so whenever you look at them you’ll be reminded of your year. Use different wall art materials, sizes and shapes to create a nice contrast.

Create a personalised calendar
Creating a calendar for 2018 using photos from 2017 is a lovely way to look back on your year. Every month you’ll be reminded of what you were up to this time last year. Choose your favourite photo you took each month and use it for your calendar.

Print some retro prints
Our retro style prints are a stylish way to remember your year, and hanging in your home they’ll give your living space a vintage vibe. You could choose your favourite photo that you took each month, or perhaps even your favourite photo from each week and print them out. If you’re doing this on our mobile app, you can even choose coloured borders for your prints.
Add dates to the photos or text to describe them, then have a look at our blog about displaying your retro prints to choose how to show them off at home.
Send a New Year card
Keep your friends and family up to date with what you’ve been up to in 2017 by sending them a New Year card. Create it using photos from your year, and also feature photos of them so you can share your moments together.
From a month-by-month year book to a simple card for friends and family, we hope these creative ideas for remembering your year have inspired you.
