Isn't this a Happy blue tone card!! It has a soft look to it with the blue lace, the sweet bird guarding her eggs tag, and cute calico blue roses. I love it and will be happy to thank that special person by giving her this lovely card! Thanks again - Fast shipping!

Special Easter card for a special friend! Do you see that adorable newly hatched little chick? "Scrumptious, sunflower yellow seam binding with a paper lace doily, and loads of vintage doo-dads that make cards look very snazzy!" Perfect quote from this talented Seller! I couldn't have said it better!

About

Who will tell your story?

Scrapbooking tells a story. Your story. Years from now, your photos will be in the hands of those who know "of" you, but do not know anything "about" you. Sure, you may have a date, a name, or the vacation noted on the back of a photograph, or the binder of a photo album. But how will they know what you were thinking?
The joy in your eyes as you pose next to your soul-mate for a wedding picture. The look in daddy's eyes the first time he holds his newborn son or daughter. Your baby's first steps, first day of school or their first day camp over "nighter" away from their bed.

Yes, those photos have a date and a time. But do they really know the story? What you were thinking? The joy or sorrow you felt? The words you wrote, the cards you sent. Scrapbooks are made for those who will not only open a book, but open a new chapter in your life and able to feel as though they were there, with you, just by looking at the way you express your thought, drew a picture, placed a photo, journal an event.
A family memory and keepsake readily available for any time someone wants to know exactly what you were thinking and how you felt at the time you were there at that precise moment. Don't rob those you love of that memory. Take a look at my scrapbook layouts and start creating YOUR memory. Or better yet, convo me and we can discuss one of your own!

Not just any card:

At BennBoo Creations, you will not find just "a card." Each card is made with time, care, and thought. The highest quality papers, embellishments and colors are put into consideration first. My favorite supply purchases are made at the corner antique shop and vintage consignment stores. My second favorite? Right here with fellow Etsy sellers: and most of the time, I can find both in the same shop with vintage sellers right here!
There are times when I complete cards and do not put them in my store. They are not the 'worthy' ones. Those go to "other" places.
There is a variety of cards here for every occasion, every style, and every budget. Some cards are made with layers upon layers of high quality paper from specialty paper shops and one of a kind embellishments for special occasions for a special kind of person with a special intention in mind. There are also many simple cards, with fun sayings and cute qualities that can be for those who love sending lots of cards to lots of people, just to send love and smiles for a birthday, thank you, or just because!
Why spend your valuable time, in front of rows of card that hold hundreds of mass-produced, over-priced copies, when you can give someone you love or know, a one of a kind creation that is a keepsake and will remain a keepsake for years to come, or, may even end up being a part of their home décor or recycled into a book or journal because of the quality being at it's highest. A card from BennBoo Creations!
Thank you, for reading my story. Thank you, for visiting my store!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Some cards and layouts can be personalized, some cannot. It is up to the design and space on the card or layout. Please know that during busy "card holidays," I may not always have the time to make changes to designs posted in my shop.
All custom orders must be paid for in advance, and are non-returnable; but you all ready knew that! ;)

Care instructions

Some of my cards come with envelopes, some do not and will be noted. Because of the many embellishments, buttons and beads that make my cards so unique, extra preparations will be needed if you choose not to hand-deliver your card. Purchasing a padded mailer, or using a thick envelope with a piece of sealed air would aid in making sure your card arrives to it's destination without damage.
A thick postal mailer with cardboard (cereal box thickness) inserted, and please label your envelope, "do not bend," although, I have had 100% success with our postal service delivering my cards without damage, because of these preparations.

Sizing details

All of my scrapbook layouts are 12 x 12" inches squared unless notes. MOST of my greeting cards are between 5" x 6.5" inches and 5" x 7" inches. Measurements are listed in the descriptions. Your cards will be mailed in a padded mailer.

Why is there a difference in cost, for similar sized cards?

All of my cards are made with high-quality, well known paper design companies. Most of my cards are made with thick, heavy cardstock, who likes a "flimsy" card?
Printed tags & high quality embellishments all acid free, purchased right here, on Etsy! I also love to shop at antique stores to add uniqueness to my cards. I do my best to state exactly what goes into the making of each card.
Fold a piece of cardstock in half, slap on a few stickers and some twine and charge $4 for a card like the ones you buy from the drugstores. Save the drugstore card for people you know; Buy a card from BennBoo Creations for somebody you LOVE!!

Sizing details

Please note that pricing on layouts need to reflect both a scrapbook page and handmade card purchase - just in case. If you know that you will be purchasing more than one layout in advance, please let me know, otherwise I will adjust any refund through PayPal. Thank you.

Care instructions

All of my card embellishments are attached with bookbinding glue. My bows are tied and then either stitched through the knot, or touched with fabric glue so that they do not come untied. The layouts are similar.
All items are finalized with clear cello sleeves, to protect from weather elements if left somewhere exposed. Bubble wrap, tissue or recycled materials will be used in wrapping. You may see the backside of a cereal or cracker box--but only the "nice" ones:) My goal is to have your items arrive safe and secure, the way they left my home.
There is ALWAYS something extra, too! Not going to say what it is, but it will be included:) as a "thank you" for choosing BennBoo Creations.
