(8) Mon Jan 10 2005 10:51 PST Hey Rachel: This sounds like an easy way you could make some good money, if you can get used to fleecing the gullible without feeling guilty, (not, in my experience, a strength of the Richardson/Whitney bloodline, but associated more in my mind with the trickster Calls). It monetizes the skills I said during Christmas you should monetize, but is a whole lot higher margin than making collage crafts. Link via Accordion Guy.

Jill Whitney does this. I don't think she charges that big of bucks though.

John's sister's business used to do this, but I don't think they do anymore. Now they mostly make kits of stuff, and you can subscribe to get two kits a month.

Well, I guess this is old news to everyone but me.

I think the problem with scrapbooking is the same problem with collage crafts: I can't find anyone willing to pay me enough to make it worth my while to do for strangers. It's enough just to do it for gifts, etc, and a lot easier as I know the peop;e for whom I am making. (And no, this is NOT a volunteering to do scrapbooks for people for birthdays or christmas.) Wherever these rich, stupid people are... I certainly don't know any.

Jill charges $2 a page last time I checked and lately I have been seriously thinking about having her do my wedding photos and some for lily. Susie- where can I find out more about the page kits? There is a scrapbook club once a month amongst the ladies in my stake there, and my mom and I are going to go once I move.

My sister's website is www.heritagecreations4you.com. I'm not sure if it shows on there what the upcoming kits are going to be or not, but Susie and I have helped make them before!

Actually, $2 a page is really cheap. Does that include materials? It couldn't possibly. She is discounting her time and creativity, I believe. She could easily charge between 5-10; and a lot more than that if she weren't in Utah.

She could charge way more for sure. It is by the page but you have to pay for the materials. She does it b/c she likes it so much and also b/c she is so fast at it. I would pay $5/page but anything more than that I couldn't justify, so I would just do it myself. I am not as creative as Jill though. That is why a kit would be perfect for me.
