I could tell just from the name that Artifact Uprising was going to be a different kind of company. The brand has a boutique, modern feel but the prices say “This is for you, too”.

You wouldn’t know it from the quality though.

Right before Emily’s third birthday I had that typical panic. Another year had passed and what does my scrapbooking show for it? I’ve taken a lot of photos, but I’m in progress on so much.

Normally I’m totally OK with that, but this rapidly-approaching milestone had me searching for a simple solution. I wanted to feel caught up, even if I wasn’t.

So I decided it was time to finally try that cool new company, creating two 5.5.x5.5 Instagram photo books.

I love how this size is so holdable, perfect for big and small hands alike. Your images are printed on 100% post-consumer page stock with a matte finish. It’s eco-elegant.

In this size of book there are just a few page style options, but a limitation on choice makes it so easy to create. I put together my first book in less than 30 minutes.


I made two books, Emily at Age 1 and Emily at Age 2. I was able to import images directly from my Instagram account and select which ones I wanted to use.

I love the full bleed images the best and want to do a book with just those and lots of words. Swoon.

There are lots of options for photo books today, but Artifact Uprising gets simple right. So love that!
