Sharing legacies one story at a time.

I've always loved photographs and people's stories. Scrapbooking combines them both. I have fallen in love with mini albums especially, as well as other forms of paper art.

I love using different elements and textures in my work. Paints, inks, fabric, ribbon, buttons, cardboard, something one may throw out and of course paper are all my favorite materials.

Creating something everyday, is so therapeutic for me, even if it's just adding a little paint to a page or an album. I have to create.

All items created as well as every other aspect of my shop is done by me and only me in my smoke free home.

Turning your memories into works of art!

I love all things paper, of course! I love inky fingers, that means I've been creating :)

Each item I make is created with great care and made only by me. I am a one woman show ;)

I am very convo friendly. I will return your convo ASAP or sooner :)

  • Money Order
Please pay for items within 24 hours of committal. I prefer paypal or credit card thru direct checkout, but I do accept money orders as well. Paypal/credit card will be the quickest way to get your goodies. If you do pay by money order, please allow time for arrival as well as clearing the bank. If you choose to pay by money order and I do not receive it within 10 calendar days, I will contact you. If I get no response and still no payment I will leave appropriate feedback, cancel the sale and relist the item. I hate to have to do this, but because of non-paying customers in the past, I have no choice. I have to collect 7% sales tax for NJ residents.
After payment is received, I ship within 2 business days, in most cases even sooner, unless it's a custom item. Then, please allow up to 2 weeks (unless otherwise stated in convos) for shipping, depending on the project. I will absolutely keep you updated on the progress of your custom made items. Due to the recent increase in shipping charges, I had to increase my shipping prices some as well. I do combine shipping, and I will refund any shipping overages in excess of $1. Thank you for understanding!

I will gladly ship internationally, just convo me so I can get the best price for you.
I recycle packaging. :)

I ship my albums using USPS Priority shipping which includes insurance and tracking for US addresses. International will go either first class or Priority with tracking, whichever is discussed in convos, however, I am unable to insure international orders and I cannot track packages once they leave the US. I am not responsible for any lost packages.

Please note that the buyer is responsible for any tariffs, taxes and duty charges for international packages.
Refunds and Exchanges
Hopefully, you will be 100% thrilled with your purchase from Artful Memories, but if you are not, you may return your items within 7 days of purchase. Please note that custom work may not be returnable. This will vary on a case by case basis. Please convo me with the reason for your return. You are responsible for return shipping. I will refund your money through paypal, plus original shipping costs once I receive the returned item. No refund will be given if package is refused because of tax or duty charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome custom orders. Start a convo by clicking on the Request Custom Order button or just click contact owner. Either way, we can get your custom order rolling.
All of my creations are made with acid & lignin free high quality materials in a smoke free studio. I create each piece myself, so if you have a deadline, please allow ample time for completion. Custom orders usually can take between 4 and 6 weeks. If you need it sooner, please let me know. Be assured, whatever you order from me will come to you wrapped with great care.

Thanks so much,
