I dropped by my local scrapbook store, Memories Live On, to drop off one of my layouts for display. While in there, I found out that another local scrapbook store, Scrap Happy, was closing. The scrapbook store near my parents’ place, Green Tangerines, is closing as well. I saw that one coming even before Christmas. It’s just sad to know that scrapbook stores across the country are shutting down.
We, as paper crafters, can totally prevent stores shutting down though! Make sure that if you have a store nearby… show your support by buying your supplies from them. Sometimes the chain retailers can be cheap, but you’ll never get the charm and uniqueness from the smaller store. 🙂
Speaking of your local scrapbook store, mine is hosting Scrap Blue, an event to raise money for the March of Dimes Foundation. I’ll be at this event doing make and takes to introduce Kiki Art to the Northern California area! It’s going to be FABULOUS — helping others and scrapbooking…?! It can’t get any better than that! 🙂 If you are interested on attending, click here.
I also wanted to share a recent layout. Nikki was so kind enough to give me some of her cute corduroy brads at CHA, and they worked perfectly on this layout. Also, do any of you recognize the twine on this layout? It’s from Deana!
Lastly, I wanted to share a mini album that I created for the Kiki Art booth at CHA. I had a lot of fun making this mini album because the colors I got to play with were so bright and fun!
Does anyone have any sketches I can use?! If so, share a link because I’m lacking some inspiration right about now.
Happy Monday to everyone!
