How Keep It In A Frame came about

Keep it in a Frame is a small family business, run mainly by myself, Tina Allen, a forty something wife and mum to one son. I have been making things for most of my life in one form or another, from sewing, cross stitch and card-making, to picture framing and paper crafting.

In 2005, I gained an NVQ level 3 in Business Start up by attending a course specifically aimed at women with a business idea that could be developed on line. My aim was to start a picture framing business, hence the name “Keep It in a Frame” (My husband chose the name and it conveniently has my own name hidden in it). I started to make small scrapbook albums using mount board I had left over from framing orders, mainly selling at local craft fairs, and my current business evolved from here. In 2008, I ventured on line and haven't looked back.

I still make picture frames but my time is now mainly spent hand crafting guest books for special occasions and scrapbooks/memory albums. All of the products are designed and handmade by myself and are made with great care and attention to detail, using the best quality materials available to me.

Since 2019 I've been introducing a range of peg photo frames. The frame surrounds are not currently handmade but we are working on sourcing some sustainable solid wood that we can use to ensure that the complete frame is handmade by ourselves in the future. Frames will be listed in my shop according to current availability.

A good proportion of my time is spent making bespoke items for customers who have very specific requests regarding design, colours and wording. If you would like to place an order but don’t see an item that suits you, please contact me with your requirements and we can work out a design together.

Please feel free to email me with any queries that you may have. Thank you for your time.
