Welcome to Captured Time Custom Scrapbooks. Thank you for taking the time to shop with me. I specialize in custom designed Memory Albums. My very favorite thing to work on is everyday family life, because I think it is so important to document our lives lest we forget all the fun times we had! I get misty every time I see someone view the albums I create from their special days.

Because I love paper and all that has to do with it I can not help myself from creating other little things of beauty and providing others with the materials to do so! I am always open to custom orders convo me with your requests.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges

If the handmade item you purchased doesn't turn out to be what you expected, please contact me within 7 days of receipt and I'll let you know where to send your return. The item must be returned in its original condition in a padded envelope to protect it from damage. I will refund the purchase price, or give you store credit toward another purchase, whichever you prefer. I regret, but shipping fees are non-refundable.


I stand behind all my creations and hope that each purchase from my shop is the beginning of a long time return customer relationship. My goal is to make sure each customer is not just happy with their purchases but will tell others about their experience.


I take great care in detailing everything about each item ~ I purchase direct from Prima Marketing Inc. so you can be sure of getting the very highest of quality embellishments.

Paypal and credit cards are accepted. You do not have to have a Paypal account in order to use your credit card. If you have any questions about the payment process, please send me your questions and I will help you as much as I can, or go to:

If you're unable, for some reason, to complete payment at the time you place your order, please be sure to contact me or leave a message in the 'Notes to Seller' section to let me know when I can expect the transaction to be finalized. My preference is to receive payment within five days of order, but as long as we've agreed on a time frame I will reserve your order. Regardless, I won't ever cancel a sale without making several attempts to contact you through convo and email.


Personal checks are accepted from pre-approved Buyers within the U.S. only. Please contact me first before placing an order if you would like to pay by check. I would like to receive full payment within 10 days of check approval. I will ship as soon as I have received payment and the bank tells me the check has cleared. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. Sorry about all the extra instructions, but payment by check always requires a few extra steps.

Cost of shipping includes cost of packaging as well as postage.

Standard shipping to buyers within the U.S. is USPS First Class unless it is over 13oz. Items over 13oz. Must be shipped priority mail.

Standard shipping to international buyers is USPS First Class International, which unfortunately does not include tracking.

Unless an item is custom ordered, which requires extra time to make, shipment is made within 48 hours of payment verification, Monday-Friday excluding holidays, which means Paypal or a credit card is always the quickest way to get your order.

See section under "Additional Policies and FAQs", below, for shipping information related to custom orders.


If you would like your package insured or shipping expedited I'll be happy to accommodate. Just let me know when you place your order and I'll send you an invoice for the additional fees.

See chart below for extra insurance fees for shipping within the U.S.:

-Fee------------------Insurance Coverage-
$1.70 ................ $0.01 to $50
$2.15 ................ $50.01 to $100
$2.60 ................ $100.01 to $200
U.S. orders over $200 I will pay for insurance.

I can ship registered mail, which provides tracking, to specified destinations outside the U.S. The following USPS fee schedule applies:

Fee (in addition to postage)--------Declared Value

Feedback is very important to me. If something isn't right I want to know about it and be given the opportunity to make it right, so it is my policy to leave feedback only after feedback has been left by you. I want the opportunity should any issues arrive to exceed your expectations even if a snag happens along the way. please communicate with me about any problems or questions you may have with a purchase before leaving negative feedback. I treasure my 100% positive feedback here as well as on EBAY. I will work with you to the best of my ability to ensure your satisfaction. And of course, your positive feedback is always appreciated.
