Gorgeous 28 page album chronicling your child's school photos from kindergarten until 12th grade. There is a double page spread for each grade, plus kindergarten. Colors are: black, red, yellow, and green primary colors. Perfect for boys or girls. 12 x 12 album is black with "School Days" embroidered on the front. Will accomodate your child's school photos with a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 portrait size photo mat on each double page spread. More pages can be ordered separately if needed.
I have given great attention to detail. Each layout has a sturdy black background and many layers of cardstock, giving the appearance of a "frame" around each double page spread. Each page is 12 x 12 inches, the entire layout is 12 x 24 inches.
The embellishment clusters are carefully created using design principles including the rule of threes, contrast, and balance. I often use materials such as patterned paper strips, brads, enamel dots, journaling boxes, twine bows, felt embellishments, buttons, cork, foam dots, ribbon, and stamping to make the layouts come alive with detail and texture.
I am a real stickler for matching and coordinating papers. I also strive to provide just enough detail that my embellishments will not overpower your photos. I also want to provide photo mats for multiple photos per page, so that your albums don't get too thick!
Once you receive the pages, all you need to do is trim down your photos (if desired) and attach them with double-sided adhesive (such as tape runner, or even acid-free glue). Photo mats are generally 4 x 6 inches; some are 4 x 4 inches, and occasionally I add a few smaller such as 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. I always use acid free papers and adhesives. These pages are top quality.
I securely cushion your scrapbook album and/or pages and mail in sturdy boxes. I always insure the package for the price you paid for the album/pages. This insurance cost is rolled into the total you pay for the album. If for some reason you do not want insurance, notify me by email. I ship through Priority Mail through the USPS. If you would like another carrier, additional charges will apply.
When you order a custom scrapbook, I will ask that you pay a $50 down payment and will create a specific listing for you to buy in that amount. After you mail me your photos and memorabilia, I will create a few scrapbook pages for you and then photograph them. I will email you the photographs to make sure you love what you see. If for some reason you are not satisfied, I will make appropriate changes. The $50 down payment is non-refundable once I have begun work on your album.
Returns & exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with premade pages or albums, you may return them to me. I will refund your purchase price minus shipping costs. If for some reason any items are damaged in mailing, you must keep all shipping materials and the original shipping box and take them to the USPS (US Post office). You can contact me and I will send you the tracking number or insurance number and you will be able to directly deal with the post office for any refunds. I do not offer any refunds for custom scrapbooking services, as the products I create for you will not be usable or resellable to anyone else.
