“The pregnancy journal is beautiful! I absolutely love it!!” ~ Heather Andersen

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“I love my pregnancy book! The cover is adorable and the pages inside are super cute a well. Anne-Marie was great to work with, she was super sweet and got back to me extremely quickly. The book shipped even faster than she told me it would, she knew I was in a rush since I was so far behind on chronicling my pregnancy. I would order from her again in a heart beat!” ~ sbovescholl

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“Words cannot even express the excitement that overcame when my book arrived! Anne-Marie (shop owner) was such a pleasure to work with and I cannot thank her enough for taking the time to make such a one of a kind keepsake! Quick turnaround, super impressed and I Highly recommend! I WILL be back!” ~ Sunnie Stewart

“This was a custom order, and it was exactly what I wanted. I cried when I opened it -- it was just so beautiful! The designer was so easy to work with and asked great questions so that we could get every little detail exactly right. The quality of the materials is lovely, and I can't wait to put my baby book together!” ~ Elizabeth Kensak

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“I searched high and low for a memory book where I could save invitations, guest lists, pictures and other mementos from my wedding celebration, and this book turned out to be absolutely perfect. It is beautifully made and presented in a classic way - none of that cheesy bridal junk that you see so much of these days. Additionally, Anne-Marie was incredibly helpful when answering my questions and was just a pleasure to work with. HIGHLY recommended!!” ~ Celia

“This is the third Baby Book I have purchased for myself, as well as a few others for some friends and family. I absolutely love everything about them. The outside cover is soft and stunning, simple, but just enough. They have a page for every month, which is just enough to write about, not overwhelming like so many books. Plus the extra pages come in handy for saving cards, and memories. I cannot recommend her products enough!”

I recently created this airplane charm design for a pregnancy journal and then not long after received a request for it on a baby book. What hard-to-find design elements are you looking for? Contact me to talk about making your vision a reality!
What a sweet boy with his baby book! This deer antler pattern is also offered with arrows instead of buffalo plaid. I’ve even made it with other accents, too. I’ve got plenty of options to customize your cover…contact me to get your book started!
I love how this two-book set for baby twin sisters turned out! These books will hold sweet memories that will be treasured forever.

About

I'd love to help you celebrate life's precious moments...

I have always loved paper. And books. And boxes. And anything else that I could combine paper with to make a new something. I started exploring making books and boxes in design school. A few years later, I became interested in beads and began to design and create unique “charms.” I applied these beaded charms to handmade cards, frames and scrapbooks. After an overwhelming response from friends and family, I started to sell my creations in stores across the U.S.

Once I became pregnant with my first child, I began to search for the perfect baby book. Frustrated when I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, I designed my own. My blank scrapbooks evolved into baby memory books with printed pages filled with journaling prompts and sprinkled with sweet drawings so I could keep track of my little one’s first year. The variety of books and charms I was creating began to grow, and eventually I had a whole line of books to offer.

Making memory books for others brings me great joy and satisfaction. I’ve been at it for more than 15 years and I still love it! I enjoy creating books with new paper and pattern combinations, new charm designs and new page ideas. It’s exciting to me when a customer loves one of my books but needs to tweak the page design to fit their needs…I love it when I can help a customer create something they couldn’t find anywhere else. Please let me know if I can help you make the perfect book! :)

Frequently asked questions
Can I choose a different cover for my book?

Yes! You can choose any cover in my store. If your favorite cover is on a different type of book (i.e. you want a baby book, but love a cover that’s only shown on a guest book), check out with the appropriate book type and leave a note in the “note to Charmbooks” message box about the cover change. Feel free to message me with any questions.

How do I personalize my book?

Personalization is printed on the white vertical banner that separates the solid and patterned papers. When ordering, please include your personalization information in the comments box. Please limit text to 50 characters (including spaces). If your text is longer, message me and I’ll see if I can fit it in by reducing the type size. If you need suggestions on what to print, send me a message and I'll send you some examples.

How do I add extra pages to my book?

Add the extra pages listing(s) to your cart before checking out (see the "Extras & Add-Ons" section). Please note that most of my books are wire bound, so pages must be added when I create your book. Additional pages cannot be added after you receive your book, so now is the time to order them. :)

Please contact me to add additional years to anniversary journals so we can discuss your options.

Will I receive a proof?

I send text proofs for personalized items, usually within 24 hours (except on weekends). If you have not received a proof after 24 hours, please check your Etsy account, your spam folder or contact me. If I haven't heard from you regarding approval of your proof after 72 hours, I will proceed with your order and ship it. Please check the email associated with your Etsy account so there is no delay in getting your book to you.

Do you accept custom orders?

Yes! If you are trying to match a nursery, shower theme, color scheme, or if you need some page modifications/additions, please contact me to see if I can help make your vision a reality.

When can I expect to receive my book?

Turn-around time for most orders is 3-8 business days (sooner for funeral books). This time frame does not include shipping times. Custom orders may take longer. If you need your book by a certain date, please contact me to see if I am able to accommodate you. I'm always happy to work with customers who have tight deadlines.

You will receive a notification once your items are shipped, so please be sure to check your Etsy account to receive this information. All U.S. orders ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking information. All international orders ship USPS First Class International (tracking is limited once the package leaves the U.S.). If you prefer a different shipping method, please contact me so I can get shipping costs for you.

What if my book arrives damaged?

Although I take great care in wrapping and protecting your book, occasionally a book is damaged in shipment. If this happens, it is extremely important that you notify me immediately and that you keep the shipping box. You will need to send me photos of the damage to both the box and the book. Without such evidence, I cannot file a USPS insurance claim. You must keep both the box and the book until after the claim has been closed.
