Review: An explosion of memories

A couple of weeks ago I featured Kerry Goodman as my July Business mum of the month. Kerry makes scrap books. An interest that increasing numbers of people seem completely besotted by. Scrapbooking to my mind is a bit like golf…it seems to just take hold of people and they totally fall in love with it!

Kerry makes bespoke scrapbooks for others to complete and sells them via her scrapbook website

Everything Kerry makes, she makes as if it were for herself. She puts as much care and attention into the gifts as if they were the first ones she made. The quality of her handmade items is excellent.


I reviewed an explosion box.

Explosion boxes are simply an eruption of memories just waiting to happen. When closed the boxes are small at 4″x4″x4″ but when open span to an impressive 12″x12″ page. The boxes have three layers in the inside with a total of 29 sides once the box is fully exploded. These are great for photographs, quotes or little written memories. For an extra special surprise there is also room for a little gift inside. Maybe a cupcake or item of jewellery would do the trick. Could you think of a better proposal than all of your memories surrounding your engagement ring? The possibilities are endless. These make brilliant presents either to complete on someones behalf or to send them to fill in for themselves.

Kerry sent me an explosion box to review after I said how fabulous they looked.

I used mine for my best friends 40th birthday gift. I wrote a memory we shared on every single side or flap of paper and as she opened it the years came flooding back. She cried. I cried. It looked beautiful and was filled with love and memories. What a unique gitft for just £13.  Absolutely delightful, unusual and personal.

Imagine if for a wedding gift you bought one of these and the whole family added a thought or a wish for the happy couple, how lovely would that be.

All of Kerry’s keepsakes have instructions on how to put in your own photos and  are included with the appropriate adhesive.  She also sells these amazing journal jars to help record a babys developemt as well as other mini scrap book albums.


What a great way to buy a cool, bespoke gift for a really good priice. I am impressed.
