Make a Legacy Family Album - Oct 12!

  Hello, Memory Bound friends!
If I've learned anything at all in the past few years, it is the importance of preserving family memories. No matter how busy life gets, it's important to take the time to save the photos and stories of our lives to pass on to future generations. In my opinion, completed scrapbooks are some of the most meaningful gifts we can pass on to our family.

Join Pat on October 12 for her Legacy Family Album class, and you can get started doing just that. This album is full of pockets, details, and rich, warm elements that will complement your family photos and stories beautifully. Check the details below, then call us at (515) 965-1102 to register for Pat's great class!

Hello, DIY Friends!

This collection is absolutely amazing and the possibilities are truly endless! DIY Christmas offers greeting cards, journaling elements, gift tags, pockets, treat bags, home decor & so much more - it's your 'go to' crafting holiday collection this season!!
Let's not wait any longer!! 

When I interviewed for my job at Memory Bound, Kellie and Dawn asked me what my favorite product to work with might be. And with great confidence I answered, "Stickers. Especially sticker letters." We now all get a good chuckle out of that story, but I must admit, when I saw all the DIY stickers, I swooned!
