Scrap 4 Hire

 Creations by Kera 
We are living in a digital age. Most of us take pictures with either a digital camera or cell phone. But what happens to these pictures…these special memories? For most of us, they get loaded onto our computer, never to be seen again. A lucky few may be turned into a desktop or uploaded to Facebook, but the majority will be forgotten about. Yes, we have good intentions to print these photos for framing or to turn into scrapbooks, but let’s face it, time is a luxury many of us do not have. This is where I come in.

Using photos, provided by you, I will create custom Digital Scrapbook layouts, albums, brag books and more.  Are you behind on your baby albums? Let me turn them into a series of books, spanning each year. Looking for the perfect gift for grandparents or new parents? I can create the perfect layout for framing. The possibilities are endless.

What is Digital Scrapbooking? 
Digital Scrapbooking has the look of traditional, paper scrapbooking, but layouts are created digitally on my computer. It gives me more creative freedom. Completed layouts can then be printed and/or shared online.

How does it work? 
You will start by sending me your photos and journaling. Once I have those, we will discuss the type of page/album you want; i.e., color, theme, simple, elaborate. If you are unsure of what you want, I can create a layout using your photo as inspiration.  When I have finished the layout, I will send you a proof copy for your final approval. Once you approve your layout, I will send you your finalized flattened jpeg file. We will decide your printing method at our first consultation. We will also determine the time-frame (based on size of project) in which I complete your project at our first consultation.
  
Pricing: 
*Scrapbook Layouts (single sided) - $15.00 per page
Pricing includes a glossy or matte printed copy of your layout (up to 12x12) and a flattened digital jpeg file.

*Scrapbook Albums (20 single side layouts)
         -$250 printed
         -$175 Flattened digital files on CD
         -$10 for each additional page past 20
For albums I can either print the pages as individuals to put in an album of  your choice, or I can order you a hardbound book, printed through Shutterfly. If you choose Shutterfly’s hardbound book, I will include the cover designs in the original price. (I use Shutterfly for my personal books and couldn’t be happier with the product.)

*Custom Invitations, Announcements, Thank You and Holiday Cards
         -$15 for a flattened digital file.
If you are looking for the perfect party invitation, look no further. I will customize your invite to match your theme/party, as well as announcements and holiday cards. Once I have completed your order, you will receive an email with the flattened digital file. Then you can take the file to your printing service of choice, or send out e-vites.


*For first time customers I offer 20% off your order.

*A deposit payment of 40% is due at time of order.

*Final payment is due once you have made your final approvals. Once I have received final payment, I will send completed flattened digital files, and order the printed copies.

*I accept PayPal and personal checks. If making payment with personal check, work will not begin until the check is received and cleared. I do accept payment plans and am easy to work with in terms of how you would like to set that up.

*I strive for 100% customer satisfaction. I will do all I can to make the perfect album personalized just for YOU.

*Please email me at creationsbykera@gmail.com with any questions or if you are interested in my services. I look forward to working on your album.
