hiiiii everyone, this is exciting as it’s my first post featuring one of my handmade memory keeper books.
I gave them that name after I read an amazing book called the memory keeper’s daughter where the father used a camera in the 1960s called the memory keeper – so the name was born.
I’ve been making the books for about 6 years now ans sell them at local fayres and on etsy but a good many of them end up as gifts!
this is a VERY photo heavy post, as all the memory keeper books will be. they contain so many details and i want somewhere to share every single page in one place. this post is also a bit wordy to begin with but then i promise – lots of pictures.
the books come in various sizes so i’ll pop you a link in to the memory keeper section in my store so that you can take a look:
the following information is the description for this book that i use on etsy:
the memory keeper books are for storing treasured photo’s and memorabilia. it has lots of space for all those special images. 10 sides of pretty, good quality papers and each page has 4 pull out photo mats, just pull at the semi circle on the side of the page and voila – lots and lots of space, 20 extra pages!
in addition there are 12 further photo mats that pull out and fold out to hold pictures, journaling, ticket stubs or anything you wish to look back on with fondness.
you can slide in menus from your favourite restaurants, tickets, programmes, travel memorabilia etc. – just have fun and fill it to the brim with happiness.
the book closes with a long length of good quality grosgrain ribbon so you can stuff the book full. the more the books are filled and used the better they become.
inside this book I have clipped in 4 decorated envelopes that can hold little secrets away from prying eyes! Plus a miniature envelope too.
I love to make little tags and embellishments for the book and hanging keys on it too.
They make a stunning unique gift, you can even start their book for them by popping in a handwritten note. Or be utterly selfish and buy one for yourself.
dimensions: W 6.5″ H 5″ D 1.75″
all books can have a name added for no extra charge, just message me at the time of purchase.
this particular book was made using my like for ever ‘hello beautiful kit’ featuring the crate paper – wonder collection.
this kit has sold out but you can have a look at the like for ever shop by clicking the link on the right hand side.
now for a good look inside…. the sides of all the pages open up and inside are 4 photo spots, sooooooooo many places to journal and keep a record of treasured moments.
the little house paper clip holds the envelopes that are decorated and so so pretty, for special photo’s notes, memorabilia…
more of the inside of the book….
another couple of close ups of some more decorated envelopes….
a few more pages …. the pink sections with the floral hearts on also pull out and fold out too add lots more images and memories.
a look at the book opened up in all it’s glory!
thank you for bearing with me, I hope you like the book and I just love making them. please leave comments or get in touch if you have any questions, thanks!
’til next time
