Leather Craftsmen Albums

t's Monday morning and I'm still sick. Oh, I didn't mention I was sick? Well, I AM. Very. And I've been taking almost every natural remedy known to mankind and if another person tells me to gargle with garlic cloves and apple vinegar--so help me lord--I will cough on him. Clovey breath and all. I actually resorted to swallowing green cough medicine. Should I repeat that last part?! GREEN.

In more exciting news, I received a pretty hefty delivery of Leather Craftsmen albums...woohoo! It's not unusual for me to have phone conversations with prospective clients who aren't local and in light of an upcoming conversation (Hi Giselle!), I decided to update my online photos. Like always, I love when my clients receive their albums, as there's nothing better than an album as their first heirloom. I've been using Leather Craftsmen since the inception of my business and I can't thank them enough for always taking such great care of my clients.

It just so happens that all the albums ordered were black, but I also happen to think it's are 8x10, 12x12, and 11x14 wedding albums...

A sample spread from Michele and Emin's 8x10 wedding album...

The 11x14 and the 12x12 albums are basically the same, but some clients like the vertical style, and others prefer the square...

Here are a couple 12x12 sample spreads from Amy and Will's wedding album...

Many thanks to Amy at Albumesque for doing such a great job with the designs...

Here is Monique and Mike's 8x8 Guest Sign In see more Engagement and Guest Sign In albums, I also blogged about it HERE.

I'm so, so excited for the following little's actually a 5x5 mini album! It's uber cute! I custom ordered it from Leather Craftsmen because Erica wanted an extra small album. Her fiance travels a bit, and she wanted to make sure he could just tuck the album anywhere and easily jet. I love the way it came out!

Here you can see the size difference between the 8x8 engagement album, and the 5x5 boudoir album...and, of course, the boxes. I just love the boxes with my logo embossed on the's the small things that count...

And, like always, if you're new to Leather Craftsmen, you can receive a 50% Discount for your first print&bind sample album if you use the Jasmine50StudioSample. Also, if you're a new client, you can also receive a 15% Discount for your first print&bind client album if you use Jasmine15Discount. For further questions, you can always contact my good friend Ira Gershoff...he's amazing at walking you through the album process!

Happy Monday!

Karen - Jasmine I've been following you on Creative Live and have loved every minute. You may have already addressed this but when do you resize your images for the Album. Just wondering if you do this for your gallery on Pixieset as well since clients can direct order. Thanks so much for your time and knowledge and your willingness to share.   06.21.15 - 8:10pm
