Keep it in a Frame

The home of handmade gifts for treasured memories

My Mission for Keep it in a Frame is to create gifts that help you to treasure memories and photos from life’s special moments every day.

I’m Tina Allen and I make things for people who love to travel, those who love to celebrate life’s milestones, and others who find joy in everyday moments and adventures.

Discover guest books for celebrations, scrapbook gifts for memories, and photo frames for your home.
All handcrafted in my home studio in Kent, in the UK

Handmade personalised guest books

Gather warm wishes and signatures in them, helping you to treasure your memories of the event and those that shared it with you.

Handmade spiral-bound notebooks

Not yet online, but popular in my local stockists, these are often made using offcuts, and are available with a large choice of quotes and slogans.

Handmade personalised scrapbooks

Fill them with photos and keepsakes – the perfect way to preserve all of your treasured memories, and share them with others.

Unique handcrafted photo frame gifts

Display your favourite photos in my peg frames, photo mounts and memory box frames, helping you treasure them for years to come.

Mother’s Day 10th March 2024

Mum is often the family memory keeper, and our personalised scrapbooks make excellent gifts for storing photos and other family treasures.

We have a wide range of designs:   
Mummy and Me for new mums, grandparents’ boasting books, and family scrapbooks for storing family adventures, treasured memories and family tree information for future generations.

Each of our handmade scrapbooks is presented in a kraft box, making it ready for gifting.  It also ensures the memories are protected for years to come.

Choose from our collection,  or contact us to enquire about ordering a custom design.  Every scrapbook can be personalised with names, or any wording of your choice.
