Customs, Anyone?

Hello everyone! Today is the first day in awhile that my husband actually had work! Which meant that I could finally get back to my regular routine. 

Boy, it feels good 😃

So, y’all know that I’m crazy for paper crafting. I established that fact a long time ago.

And y’all know that I am proficient in card making and layout making. Also a long established fact.

It’s also well known that everything I’ve shared- to date- is meant for my personal use.

But, did you know that I accept custom requests, as well?

Times are tough, and I’m actively looking for ways to creatively supplement our income- hence the reason I am a Close to My Heart consultant and create and sell custom requested cards and albums.

Now, I know this craft isn’t popular and in high demand like other handmade products are. Scrapbooking and papercrafting is a lost art- “snail mail” is a lost art. Needing a card for different occasions in our lives never goes out of style. We’ll always need them.

Not very many people have requested hand made items, and of the ones that did, even fewer have come back for more than one purchase. I’m OK with that. The ones that have returned, I’m incredibly thankful for and sincerely appreciate their kindness. I know there are more of you out there- the trick is finding you!

They haven’t returned not because of the poor job I’ve done, or lousy customer service. It’s solely because there’s very little interest in this type of art these days. It’s a dying breed.

If anyone wants a scrapbook or handmade card, they usually can (and do!) make it themselves. I’m looking for the people that love the way it looks, or would love to create something themselves, but don’t have a the time, know how or patience to paper craft! I know you exist, and I know you can have pretty paper-made things with very little effort. The question is, are you willing to give in?!

In turn, help support a local, home-based business.

All cards and scrapbooks are made from high quality products (mostly Close to My Heart), and are affordably priced. All the work you’ve seen here are indicative of what your finished projects will look like. Scrapbook albums can be purchased through CTMH if you don’t currently own one; if you do, kindly send it along with your printed photos, so each page can be created around the theme of each photo/group of photos.

As I alluded to above, in order for a scrapbook album to be created, I kindly ask for your pictures to be printed and sent to me (I will pick up if you’re in or around Edmonton!) along with your scrapbook album and any other mementos you’d like included in your custom scrapbook album. If you opt to purchase a scrapbook album via Close to My Heart, the price of it will be included in your total. (Albums are $100 + cost of album and shipping from CTMH).

Cards are $2 each, but can be bundled into packs (of any denomination) at a discounted price.

All prices are in Canadian currency. I will ship across Canada; shipping charges will be included. If you live in or near Edmonton, I am willing to meet you to pick up and drop off all orders! 😃

I hope this appeals to someone out there. If it does, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here and more than happy to help you out!
