 We believe everyone can create beautiful photo books and that's why we've created the MILK Inspiration Series. For series one we've partnered with Caylee Grey from Get Messy, an art community for creatives who love to learn, connect, create and celebrate the art of bookmaking. Each month, Get Messy will release a new lesson giving inspirational ideas on books to create as well as tips for creating a unique photo book you will love for generations.


Lesson one: Creating an art photo book.

Not your traditional photo book – lesson one explores creating a quick and easy photo book that celebrates creativity. Whether it’s art journaling, scrapbooking, painting, drawing, sculpting or knitting, this lesson focuses on documenting your progress and the love and time that goes into every stage of the creative process.

Lesson two: Creating a year book.

In this next lesson, Caylee shows us how she celebrates the year just past—with photos. Watch as she creates a beautifully unique keepsake to add to her memory collection and pick up invaluable tips and tricks to making the perfect year book.

Lesson three: Creating a baby book.

Lesson three takes us through the steps of creating a baby photo book. One of the most treasured books in her collection, it shares baby Elliot's first year, a time filled with precious milestones. Follow as she guides us through her process.

Lesson four: Creating the ultimate travel memento.

In this lesson, Caylee shares her unique approach to preserving travel memories. Watch as she throws out the rule book and transforms her traditional Moleskine Photo Book into the ultimate travel memento.

Lesson five: Digitizing old photos.

Old shoeboxes filled with loose photographs, ancient albums with discolored board—does this sound familiar? In lesson five, Caylee takes us through her process of breathing new life into old family photos. Watch as she preserves the memories of her family by turning these photos into a beautiful keepsake. Watch her create a legacy.

Lesson six: Creating a unique wedding album.

Your wedding album is a memento you'll return to time and time again. In this sixth and final lesson, Caylee Grey shares the beautiful wedding book she created in our Moleskine format. Not typically used for wedding albums, this format choice is just one of the many ways she made her album unique. See how she created a beautiful keepsake to celebrate her special day, her way.
