Memories By The Page

Next up is Memories By The Page...

"Memories by the Page was created as an outgrowth of a small scrapbook store in Virginia call My Scrapbook Store. It started in 2002. In 2005 the owner and creator decided to retire from the business. That is when we purchased it and moved it to Bonita Springs Florida.

We have been featured on many scrapbooking TV shows and in many trade magazines such as Simple Scrapbooks and Scrapbooks etc. special publication called "Made In Minutes." The idea of our product is to let you get more pages scrapped and recorded and back out in record time to make more memories without the worry of having to pick page colors, cut them and then put them together. With our pages all you need is pictures, embellishments, and glue and you are complete."

Karen currently has quite a few pre-made layouts featured on our website. To view them, click HERE.

Until the next time...

Are You Board? Cara Miller Designs

From Cara:

"I love anything teddy dogs (I have three Shih Tzus!) cars (I even drive an older Saab 900) ... dollhouses .. you get the idea! So when I discovered mini books, I was hooked! But I struggled with some of the details. I wanted to make mini scrapbooks that looked like a book and feel sturdy. My quest to find the perfect blank book to start my creations led to my wonderful 5x5 white blank board books. I added some Mod Podge, lots of ribbon and phoof! my first board book was complete. It was a gift for my Mom and I included photos of our recent trip to the Lion King play. I journaled all those sentioments that I want to say but usually cry when I say know what I am talking about! Well they were perfect on the little tags I tucked inside the pockets and hid on the backs of the photo tags. My handwriting wasn't such an issue cuz my tags were small and it was kinda secret, peeking out of the pockets. Ya, I was now board book obsessed and wanted to share them everyone. In 2006 my "baby"..the last of my five children..left for college and my cure for Empty Nest Syndrome was to take my classes on the road..and hit the road I did! I have visited so many cities in my role as a scrapbook teacher at Creating Keepsakes Conventions and Scrapbook Expo Conventions (and a few more) from New England to Arizona and Florida! Board books and Mod Podge and a Cropadile certainly raise some eyebrows at the airport security screening desks! So now, I am so excited to share my love of board books here with you from the comfort of my couch."

Cara offers several board book kits on our site so be sure to check them out today!

A Memory To Scrap

Okay, as promised, I'm going to start by featuring each of our designers individually so that you can discover more about them and where they get their inspirations.

"A Memory To Scrap" was created out of a love of scrapbooking. According to Ashley, the store owner, as her personal scrapbooking experience evolved, the purpose of the store has been cemented. "Over the last 7 years of scrapbooking, I have learned that the scrapbook pages are the medium that allows me to relive special memories as I create the pages, as well as a way to preserve my family's history for generations to come. Through the creation of kits with color photos and easy to follow instructions, all of us at A Memory To Scrap strive to remove the stress of creating the perfect page from your scrapbooking to allow you to enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling that comes only from remembering special memories!"

Ashley currently has 7 kits on our site and although each of them are wonderful, her latest addition -- Precious Gifts -- is probably my favorite.
Stop in the store and shop our wonderful kits! Don't forget -- shipping is always a flat rate of $5, no matter how many kits you buy!
