Article about Scrappin' Memories 4U Custom Scrapbooking

You create the memories...she'll display them

Got pictures? Maybe you have too many and not enough time to do anything with them. This past summer stay-at-home mother Danielle Hunter started Scrappin' Memories 4U. "I just love scrapbooking," says Hunter who has been scrapbooking for over 20 years.

Scrapbooks are a wonderful way to preserve your memories, but many of us simply don't have the time, or haven't invested in the scrapbooking tools and supplies. Simply put, Hunter says, "My job is to get those pictures out of boxes and into scrapbooks so people can share their memories with others."

After you've carefully selected your pictures, you can select decorative cardstock and other embellishments for your album. You may purchase products on your own at the local craft store, or through Hunter who is also a Memory Works consultant.

She charges an hourly rate which includes tax, adhesives, plain cardstock, etc. Depending on how elaborate a book you prefer, it takes approximately 30 minutes to one hour to complete one 12x12 scrapbook page. Through artistic design and personal journaling, your pictures will come to life to enjoy in the present, and to pass down for generations.
