Craft Show from 1pm-3pm on Saturday, Dec 5th

One of my fellow marketing partners called me a few weeks back and gave me a lead on a craft show at a retirement center in the Valley here in Spokane. What an opportunity I thought! I am also going to be presenting my work and hopefully selling items at a craft show in Deer Park on the 11th and 12th of December. This is exciting because I am able to create affordable items for people but still give them a custom product. Anyone that knows scrapbooking, knows it is far from affordable.

I have a friend who suggested to me that I mass produce my baby albums and then I could charge a lower price. The albums would all be the same and the recipient would essentially be the one to do the customizing of the album....but still the same concept as before. So, I thought good and hard how I could do this and at little cost to myself.....and of course taking less time to create a good product. Quality is essential for the work I I had to be sure I was not sacrificing quality. To make this very long story short....I finally came up with a way to mass produce baby albums so that they still have character and quality but they take a short amount of time to produce.

I featured the 6X6 Blossoms & Butterflies album as well as the Three Little Pigs albums. These albums took about 2 full days to complete all 8 albums. And they are cute, simple, and make great gifts for that new or expectant mom. All the albums I had featured before with no albums included are now sold in albums for the same low prices. So, the 6X6 album now goes for $35 and the 8X8 albums are $50. I know this is amazing. But I have decided that unless you just want a custom album with a specific theme then I am going to sell albums at this size and price from now on. I love being able to share the gift of memories with others. And now we surely can Remember You when we Scrap!
