Quick & Easy Keepsakes

Standard

Need help organizing your photos and other mementos?

Any of these statements sound like you?

  • Scrapbooking is too much work

  • I am not creative

  • I don’t know where to start

  • I have lots of photos and no time to show them off

You say making a scrapbook page is too much work? You don’t think you have any creativity to design a memory keepsake? Do you have photos and mementos just thrown in boxes or lying patiently on a shelf or in a drawer, just waiting to be displayed somewhere?

If this sounds like you then I have a perfect solution for taking those items and creating a memory keepsake in a flash! Close to My Heart has 13 beautiful kits available and during the month of August, we are having a sale! The kits come with 122 pocket-style cards + a 12×12 cover sheet for your album and 10 page protectors.

Picture My Life kits are the perfect solution for making a memory keepsake!

Picture My Life kits are the perfect solution for making a memory keepsake!

This month only you can add an extra set of 10 page protectors for only $3!  Plus as my own personal incentive to make your keepsake, when you buy 5 Picture My Life kits you get the 6th one FREE!  Can’t wait to see how you will make your keepsake so be sure to share a link or post a photo along with a comment when you are done- this is an “easzy peaszy” project that doesn’t take any talent or creativity to make it so come on and make one today!

Another favorite Website that we follow on our Facebook feed is Hometalk. You would be amazed at all the great jewels and nuggets of knowledge that people share on that site.

This first nugget is an idea that some of you may already do to keep your files organized but we thought there might be others who had no idea about this type of file system for important papers. Accordion folders have been around for some time and we’ve used them to organize our business invoices and receipts, but this idea takes it a step further.
