CHA...A Success!!!

We had so much fun at CHA this past week!  It's always exciting being able to see all the newest releases up close and in person.  It's such a challenge deciding what companies to purchase from and we so wish we could but it all (doesn't everyone). We did our best and are still in the process of choosing some.  We'd like for you to check back as we list what we have purchased and post it once it is in the store. 

As an independent store, we realize the competition out there in terms of "Big Box" stores, I won't mention any names...but we know you, as the consumer could probably get some items you'd like sooner at one of these stores since vendors ship to these "big" accounts first.  We run into this all the time.  Angie and I would like to say THANK YOU so much for supporting us (the little guys).  We do not want you to think we place our orders late, when in fact, we may place our orders before these large chains.  In this industry they get top billing.  As frustrating as this may be, it is what it is, and we are asking you, our loyal customers, to be patient as we too will have the best product to choose from.  Being scrapbookers ourselves, we know just how difficult this may be, especially because we all get so excited about the "new" lines and product. 

Also, please keep in mind that we do listen to our customers.  A lot of our ordering comes directly from customer input.  This is the benefit of being an independent store.  Please let us know via email, facebook, etc. what you'd like to see in our store.  We do our best to accommodate you always.

The following is a list of companies already ordered from and there will be more to come:

Bella Blvd (of course)
Cosmo Cricket
Jillibean Soup
American Crafts
Simple Stories
Nikki Sivils
Maya Road
Fancy Pants
Echo Park
My Minds Eye
WeR Memory Keepers
Tim Holtz
Graphic 45
Pink Paisley
Little Yellow Bicycle
Crerative Imaginations
Queen and Company
Theresa Collins
and many more!!

Product has already started pouring in.  Here are two new lines we just put on the shelves:

Margarita - from American Crafts...and a TON of new Thickers...

 and WeR Memory Keepers - Spookville 
We have this complete line and it is super cute.  There is so much to this line (paper, felties, stamps, paper packs, die cuts, 3d chip, etc), you will have to come in to see it all!


  1. I know first hand that your store goes above and beyond for its customers!! I HATE shopping the "Big Box" stores. So limited and uninspiring. I love that I can walk into The Scrapbook Store and have a color block and know that whoever is working will be more then happy to help, may even be able to offer some embellishment suggestions. LOVE IT! and keep up the Great Work!

  2. Can't wait for your new products to start arriving! It's nice to have a LSS close to home where we can come in and see the products in person! Any chance you might order some Webster's Pages new Western Romance line?

  3. Oh, and the Crate Paper Farmhouse collection is great, too!! Would love to see that at the Scrapbook Store!

  4. Way to go! Sounds like you have everything we need. It's so much better at a "little guy." Keep up the good work!
