Welcome!

Welcome to the home of Memories in a Moment.  I'm so glad you stopped by! 

Some of you may know me from The Treasure Chest, my previous scrapbook store in downtown Gilbert.  Maybe you've taken classes with me locally or at your favorite retail store around the U.S.  It's even possible we met when I was lucky enough to travel around the world to teach.  No matter how our paths crossed, I'm grateful for our friendship and I'm so glad you're joining me at my new home for all things paper crafting.

Before the pandemic, and maybe even earlier than that, I was planning to host events in my home studio.  That's not off the table, just postponed until it's safe to do so.  In the meantime, purchase project kits for 12x12 scrapbook layouts, greeting cards, mini albums with interactive features, banners for seasons or occasions, and more.

We're going to have a scrappin’ good time!
Hugs!
Joey

It's time for Ready.Set.Create! I look forward to this event every year and have for many years!  It's a two day event in Burbank, California, filled with creativity, friendships and fun!  And of course, classes!  This year, due to Covid, the event has gone virtual.  I'm still just as excited to participate and although I'll miss seeing everyone in person, I'm looking forward to spending time together virtually.
