About Unity Stamp Company"Unity Stamp Co. offers over 20,000 sentiments and images. Every single stamp is manufactured within the walls of Unity Stamp Company – so we can shout from the rooftops that our products are all made right here in the grand ol' United States of America. Isn't that the best?! The people within the walls of Unity control the quality of our product. That VERY quality of deeply etched red rubber is what has made our line of stamps so brilliantly popular. THIS is a beautiful thing." and we agree, that's why we feel Unity Stamps is a great fit for The Scrapbook Store!
Put The Scrapbook Store on your must do list this Saturday!

Meet Quinn!

Meet Quinn!

Hello!  My name is Quinn and I am an associate/instructor at the Scrapbook Store.  My love for scrapbooking started about fifteen years ago after a friend talked me into going to a Creative Memories Party.  From that night forward, I was hooked.  I started very basic and now years later, I can't get enough of brown/black chalk, paint, stamps, chipboard, Thickers, buttons & twine.  And....I love to layer everything!  Recently, I even talked my husband into letting me use half of our basement rec room as my scrapbook/craft area.  I have way too much paper and I continue to buy more each time Jillibean or October Afternoon (and various others) release new lines!  Yes, like most of you, I have what some would call a "paper addiction"!  I guess it is a good thing that I have five children to scrap about and someday I just might use all of my paper.  Even better, I have a wonderful husband who just looks the other way when I come in the door with another bag...

I really ENJOY scrapbooking and helping our customers. Pease make sure you introduce yourself and say hello the next time you are at the store!

Here's a small example of some of my layouts!

Meet Elizabeth

Meet Elizabeth!!!

Hello, all you paper lovers!  My name is Elizabeth.

I’ve been working part-time with The Scrapbook Store since December of 2005.  While I had been a customer long before then, I strolled in after a recent vacation to look for things to make an album.  Much to my delight, a “now hiring” sign hung in the window.  The rest is history!

My husband and I just celebrated our tenth anniversary this past December. 

We have four (yes, FOUR!) little peeps.

I have made lifelong friends and have gone on many adventures with the store gals.  I love going on getaway weekends to scrapbook (although it just doesn’t seem to happen as much as I’d like)!   I have a room in our home dedicated to scrapbooking and tons of goodies that go along with it.  My daughter says it looks like a store, (SHHHHHH…don’t tell my husband ).    My go-to thing for inspiration is my computer, where I save hundreds (okay, probably thousands) of images of projects and layouts.  Besides a trimmer and adhesive, I couldn’t live without pop dots, glossy accents, twine, or my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.  I have a strange weakness for school related paper and embellishments.  I have an awful  lot of stuff from many different manufacturers.  I do love Bella (who doesn’t?!), Studio Calico, Elle’s Studio, Amy Tangerine & Dear Lizzy, from American Crafts.

Here's some of my work!

Other bits and pieces about me:
I LOVE to travel.
I’ve seen Dave Matthews Band 12 times in concert.
I have one sister.
My daughter is a cancer survivor.
I’ve been a vegetarian for over twenty years. 
I check the national radar map every day for severe weather
(Storm Chasers, anyone?  LOVE!!)
It is definitely fun to come to “work” at The Scrapbook Store!  Being involved in such an amazing and inspiring place has been such a blessing. 
Thanks for looking!  Hope to see you soon!!
