Mary began scrap booking when she got married and then had her 2 daughters. She spent some time as a Creative Memories consultant, where she honed her skills using many newer professional tools and integrated techniques, Scrapbooking has been a passion ever since.|
|AN IDEA IS BORN!|
|Mary participated in local craft fairs where she would display her own work in scrapbooks. She also demonstrated new tools and scrapbooking techniques. People would comment on how gorgeous her designs were and that they wished to have their photo displayed in scrapbooks like Mary’s, instead of just packed away in boxes. They would tell her the just never have the time to scrapbook or they were not very creative. Mary saw this need, so she began to create scrapbooks that were quick and easy to assemble for a busy lifestyle.|
|WHY SHOULD I SCRAPBOOK MY PHOTOS?|
|Once you scrapbook your photos, it will become an infatuation as well as a necessity. You will never want your photos packed away again. A scrapbook allows you to preserve and capture important, special moments in your life. The ability to show photos of an occasion, such as a birthday party for your one-year old, in a small easy-to-carry 8,10, or 12 page book, is a much more captivating way of viewing special memories than just handing someone a stack of photos to flip through. These books give your photos the pop that makes them explode off the page.|
