Mini Album and Altered Frame Gifts

My obsession for paper began 6 years ago when I couldn't find "Under The Sea" themed 1 year birthday invitations. All of the ones I found were so plain and so generic, I had an idea of what I wanted but wasn't seeing it. So one of my friends said, "Why not make your own?", I had no idea where to start, but started doing more research in how to make my own, and in this process I fell in love with everything paper.

My passion is making mini albums, tags and altering frames. I feel like a mini album can tell a whole story in detail in about 6 pages. I love using all sorts of embellishments from wood, metal, flowers, resin and of course paper, you have so much freedom when making mini albums and I love that the person looking through it is able to interact with the pictures and the stories so much more then just looking through a regular album that has no story or wording added to it.

In my etsy shop you will find all of my hand made items made and designed by me. I love custom orders, so if you don't see something that you like, let me know and I would love to design it for you.

Any item you see in my shop is completely customizable, and I'm happy to create a design especially for you if you don't find what you have in mind. I love making items that are specially customized for people, makes people feel amazing when you hand them something that was made just for them and that is one of a kind also.

Please convo me with any questions!

    I love making pretty things for every day life, especially to give as gifts. My passion for everything paper came about when I had my first son 6 years ago. Now, when I see a piece of pattern paper, I get so inspired and sparks start flying.

I started scrapbooking after I had my son and noticed time was just flying by. I was trying to find a way to preserve our family’s memories, and stumbled upon scrapbooking about 4 years ago. I love all sorts of techniques and styles. I just love being able to be creative while preserving memories.

If you would like a sentiment stamped inside your card, I will be happy to add one free of charge. Most items that have been sold can be duplicated. Please contact me if you would like more than one of an item. There are some items that are one of a kind, and will not be duplicated. If you like that design and want another color or sentiment, let me know. I will be happy to work with you!
