About Keep it in a Frame | Handmade Memory Books

Hi, I’m Tina, the person behind the name, Keep it in a Frame.  My small business is dedicated to helping you preserve your special memories to ensure they last a lifetime.

All of the memory books are handmade to order from my home studio in Kent in the South East of England.

Fun Fact: My name is hidden in my company name – Keep iT IN A Frame

My handmade memory books can be used for scrapbooking your treasured photos and keepsakes; as celebration guest books for special messages; for journaling, and as photo albums. We also have a range of photo mounts and peg frames.

What our customers say about our Memory Books



Lovely scrapbook bought for a friend’s hen party.  Tina was super helpful with the personalisation and delivery.



A beautiful book & a perfect keepsake for my sisters hen weekend! Communication was great to ensure the wording was correct before sending. Delivery was quick and packaged to a beautiful high standard- thank you so much!

Lovely packaging, item just as described. Perfect little scrapbook, very thick high quality pages. Delivery was very fast. If you’re looking for a small scrapbook, especially as a gift, look no further! Would definitely buy again.

All of the creative work that goes into making a handmade memory book happens in my home craft studio.  This also is where orders are packed and despatched and all the fun admin jobs happen.

I love to work with customers to create custom memory book designs.
If you would like to speak to me about how I can help you, please get in touch as I’d love to hear from you.

Keep it in a frame is a predominantly online business, but if you are local to Kent, you will find our products in all of these local gift shops.

How you can be sure of a quality handmade memory book

I have been making memory books for over 15 years, and use only the best carefully sourced materials.

The covers are hand cut from acid free mountboard, produced in the UK, and sourced from a local picture frame supplier; paper and card is from a large UK paper company; gift boxes are custom made to fit my scrapbooks from a local company less than 5 miles from my home.

Because the memory books are handmade, I can make them in almost any size, but boxes can only be supplied for 8″x6″, 8″x8″, 10″x8″ an 12″x12″ scrapbook sizes.
