Excuse our mess while we get a facelift!


Tonight after the store closes, we are getting a makeover! The interior of the store will be painted and will have a great, fresh new look! But you know what that means...a mess of stickers, layouts and more off the walls and on the tables! 

So, please excuse our mess for a few days while the paint dries. We will be open regular store hours while the paint dries! 

If you plan on scrapbooking during the day, please call ahead to make sure we have the table space in the back. Thanks to everyone for your understanding!

A Huge Thanks to Marah Johnson!

We will also explore various adhesives and there uses beyond what the manufacturer suggests.

You will leave with a note book filled with great ideas, samples and notes. The photo of the book may differ from actual project. Students are suggested to bring products they have questions about as well.
