Marry Me (with a hidden gem!)

We met Eugene, a lovely client from Parsons Green when we were delivering a large album to clients in Chelsea. Eugene was not your average guy. He didn’t just want to use my Marry Me Package to propose to his girlfriend, he wanted the ring somehow embedded into the album itself.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, I set about working out exactly how to do this and to make it look good. he wanted to use a grey and yellow colour scheme which was lucky as I had some beautiful book cloth in both a mid grey and deep yellow in stock. I also had some fantastic hinges which I had picked up some time ago and had wondered how I could incorporate them into a layout or album.

It all came together surprisingly well …

The album was a huge success and of course she said ‘YES!”

“Marry Me?” Of course she said ‘YES!”

I have had the pleasure over the years to be privy to some pretty wonderful moments in my clients lives. A few of my male clients have been incredibly romantic and proposed to their girlfriends in the sweetest way  – with an album of their lives so far.

Of course, I am more than happy to craft these albums  – simply and elegantly designed to highlight their journey ….

Group Gifting @ The Scrapbooker

Group Gifting is a new way to buy larger, more expensive gifts for family, friends and colleagues that would otherwise be out of reach to anyone looking to buy them on their own. Group gifting allows friends and family to contribute to gifts and also eliminates the dilemma of choosing a gift for someone who has everything.

“It’s the thought that counts, but it’s the gift they’ll remember.”

We’ve all struggled over what to get Mum and Dad for their Wedding Anniversary, a friend at work on their retirement, a couple on their wedding day or a daughter on her coming of age. Buying something on our own that is special, personalised, meaningful and within budget is incredibly difficult. Our bespoke scrapbook albums and personalised PhotoArt pieces are the perfect gifts but can be costly for an individual to buy on their own. Group Gifting allows family and friends to come together and contribute to the cost of the album or PhotoArt as a group, each enjoying the benefits of giving a meaningful gift without fronting the entire cost.

Our bespoke scrapbook albums make perfect gifts for anyone retiring. Rather than the usual whip-round for that ubiquitous engraved tankard or clock, why not Group Gift a beautiful scrapbook album or photo book of photographs, accomplishments and memories instead. We created a beautiful digital scrapbook for Sir Al Aynsley Green on his retirement as England’s First Commissioner. It is filled with photographs, testimonials and memories. 11Million, who commissioned the album, were delighted.

Our digital Scrapbook albums offer a modern, clean alternative to the traditional scrapbook album and are perfect for young, dynamic people like Jake Nicholls. He was gifted a digital coffee table scrapbook to commemorate his career as a Motocross rider from the age of 5 through to adulthood. He carries a copy with him at all times but we made sure that his Mom had a copy too!

Our Group Gifting service will, hopefully, be available in our shop in the New Year but in the meantime, please contact me if you are interested in receiving further information.
