Chatbook photo albums.

Once in a while I get head over heels obsessed with something.
Chairs, drink carts, Ben and Jerry’s…
My latest obsession is a “Why didn’t I think of that?” idea.


Before I start to gush let me first start off by saying I am in no way affiliated or sponsored by them in any way.
Now that I’ve made that disclaimer, have you heard of Chatbooks?
They are the most quick and easy way to make a photo album EVER!

Back in the day, 9 years ago, I got bit by the scrapbooking bug big time.
I would paruse scrapbooks stores and buy pretty paper, tools, stickers, you name it. I even subscribed to a scrapbook magazine and would study page layouts till the wee hours of the morning. The funny thing is it would take me an hour to complete one page. To this day I have 11 pages made of my first son. I didn’t even make it to his first birthday before I realized how impractical it was for me to scrapbook.  The time, the mess, the storage space.  Meh.  I have no photo albums made of our family or my kids.

Until now.


I made these Chatbooks completely with my cell phone.  All the photos came from my Instagram account (which if you aren’t following you should).  The Chatbooks app pulled photos from my Instagram account then I selected which ones I wanted to be printed in each book.  It literally took me less than 10 minutes to compile and order 4 books.


These books landed at my doorstep Monday and my little men haven’t put them down since then.  They have loved looking through the pages and reminiscing.


And get this…each book is only $6.00!

I’m thinking about ordering a set for each son to take with them when they leave the house (when they are 40).  Or, how cool would it be to use as a portfolio of all your projects?

Each Chatbook is $6.00, 60 pages, 6″ x 6″.
How can you say no to that?


  1. I just found out about them the other day, I am awaiting my order. Can’t wait

  2. These look great. I have to put in a plug for Groovebook though. It’s an app that is $3 a month and you get 100 photos (from your iphone) in a bound book. It’s not quite the same as this- it’s more like just a book of 4×6 photos instead of a photobook, so to speak, but the price is great and I never have to worry that I’ll lose some of the photos I take each month. It just takes a few minutes to tap on the photos you want to include in the book and upload them. Just another option if others are interested! I love seeing all this great new technology and products.

  3. THANK YOU for this post! I have soooo many Instagram photos & usually wait for one of the other photo companies to have a big sale before I’ll buy a book – because let’s face it, even with the discounts, those books are still darned expensive. I’ve been using StickyGram to do magnets, but the grandmas & great-grandmas really like the photo books for their Christmas gifts. At $6 a pop, I no longer have to worry about breaking the bank!! Thanks again!! I know what I’ll be doing now in my spare time!

    I discovered Chatbooks not too long ago as well and am in LOVE!!! I also use the Rhonna Designs app to enhance my photos, personalize them and give more of a “scrapbook” feel to each picture. ( You can check out some of my Rhonna Design looks on IG 143ladybugz to see if you’re interested). Thanks for sharing and inspiring!! xxoo
