Creativity Heals: Worldwide

by Mimi Jackson

In each issue, Creating Keepsakes magazine highlights how creativity through scrapbooking can help you during difficult times. Below is a layout showing that scrapbooking can help victims of a natural disaster (and their rescuers) find healing.


Touching Lives by Julie Overby for Spellbinders. As seen in the July/August 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.


Stacey Caron and Kim Hupke of Spellbinders Paper Arts visited disaster-struck Haiti where the duo provided opportunities for Haitian children to craft. Realizing that the children need a respite from daily challenges, their hopes were to teach the students both educational and fun things to create. Calendars, journey boxes, and journals were made by the kids, amongst other things, so they could keep records of their lives and items that have meaning to them. The moving events of the trip are documented on this layout.

Global Family Philanthropy

Stacey and Kim accompanied Global Family Philanthropy, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving Haiti since 2002. To find out more about this program, visit
