Twitter me …That was quick!

I was sat browsing my Twitter feed one night last week (as you do) and casually noticed a mention I received from @TurnOnSocial. I didn’t know TurnOnSocial but they had very kindly recommended my handmade scrapbook albums to Kelly at VintageFancies who was after a beautiful handmade scrapbook album for a friend’s 30th birthday.

Without hesitation, I contacted Kelly at Vintage Fancies (and thanked TurnOnSocial for the referral) – my handcrafted scrapbook albums were literally hot off the press last week and hadn’t even hit my store. I didn’t want to miss an opportunity; and anyway, it was a good way to gauge whether the new albums would be of interest to folks and what kind of response they would get.

After a brief discussion with Kelly at Vintage Fancies, I set about creating a bespoke album for her. This was the result …

I love this beautiful post-bound album and am so pleased with how it turned out. It is 12.5″ x 13.5 ” and takes 12″ x 12″ wallet inserts or paper pages; I double boarded it for added stability and bound it with 3 hidden metal posts. Purple and gold art deco style handmade paper coat the exterior with a purple and silver mirror trim ribbon and a single large faux gem to the front. The interior is lined with purple handmade paper with a single pocket to the front and 2 tags with 10 internal wallets giving 20 workable sides on which to craft or journal.

This album is now available to buy in our shop.

As I had a bit of spare paper left over from the cover, I crafted this pocket notebook / photo holder as a gift for Kelly for being my first album customer.

I packed both of them off to Kelly and waited to see how they would be received. I was not disappointed, Kelly kindly tweeted

“Oh my goodness oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” on her feed when she received it, followed by

“I have just received the most beautiful Scrapbook from the lovely @scrapbookeruk absolutely gorgeous! if you are not following you should be”.

This made my day! It also proves that it not only pays to BE on Twitter but to also read your feed regularly!
