LOVE - In So Many Scrapbook Layouts....

The past month I was privileged to see and hear about so many people in love. I know it must sound  like a cliché but love and happiness are contagious and I truly feel happier when I design this LOVE scrapbook album.
So cheers to all you lovers and scrapbooking enthusiasts!

Here are a few layouts from my LOVE scrapbook I'd like to share with you:

 LOVE scrapbook cover - there are always slight differences between scrapbook orders, but the first LOVE scrapbook album spirit stays the same. 

 Love Scrapbook Album, pages 1-2. The cream tag you see tells customers how many photos of what sizes they need to print for this album.

 Love Scrapbook Album, pages 3-4, with a tag that can be pulled out of the pocket for better view of what's inside.

 Layouts 5-6 of the LOVE scrapbook.

 Layouts 7-8 of this Valentine's best selling scrapbook, I left just enough room for you to place your love notes!

 Scrapbook layouts 9-10

 LOVE layouts 11-12

 Tabs on the left of the photos leaves you with just enough room to journal the different facets of your love.

Treasure yourself, share the love!
Yours truly,

Custom Scrapbooking is a Bliss

I just sent a custom scrapbook called: My Adventure Book (remember the movie Up?) to it's commissioner. It's been a while since I made a custom scrapbook, and it was good to experience that excitement again.

When you edit and create visualization grounds for someone else's memories you take part in their life. When it's a love story, you get to fall in love with their story; when it's a coming of age celebration, like a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, you get to know and love their family; when it's a trip, it makes you want to go there, share the experience.

This album made a clear reminder for me of why I got into this business in the first place - because you meet people at their best, at their happiest, at their most meaningful parts of life, and you help them cherish these meaningful moments.
What can be better than that?
