Scrapbooking has been a popular pastime for decades. It’s one of the most satisfying ways of organizing, showcasing and preserving memories. A visual method of storytelling, scrapbooking is an activity in which life’s special moments can be lovingly recorded in a custom-style layout. Many professionals also use scrapbooking as a business tool, creating unique portfolios to display their work in an innovative manner.
The Scrapbook Store in Owasso is the ideal atmosphere for scrapbooking enthusiasts. Complete with a spacious cropping room, supplies, tools and ready assistance, the store is celebrating its 4th anniversary in July with lots of events and activities for all ages.
The festivities will include a Kid’s Club, held twice a week during the summer months for children aged six to 12 to get together and create paper craft-making projects. Because it has no designated start time, parents can drop off their kids anytime the club is meeting. Adult classes will also be available, in beginning to advanced levels.
The Creating Keepsakes (CK) Convention will be in town in August, and registration is open. The convention provides a wonderful opportunity to learn new techniques, take classes, enter contests and enjoy the company of other scrapbookers. The store will provide shuttle rides to and from the event, scheduled for August 22 and 23 at the Renaissance Hotel. A shuttle schedule will be available at the store at the beginning of August.
As an additional bonus, The Scrapbook Store will be holding crop sessions from 6 p.m. to midnight Thursday, August 21, Friday, August 22 and Saturday, August 23. Crafters may sign up for one night or all three. An advantage to signing up for multiple nights is that participants can leave their supplies until the next day’s session. Spaces for the special crop hours do fill quickly, so early registration is recommended
For those new to scrapbooking, a “crop night” is simply a time for crafters to bring their pictures and supplies and work on their projects in the store. Customers may also come in and crop during specified days and hours. It’s not only a convenient environment to work in, with an array of tools and supplies at hand, but also a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends and swap scrapbooking ideas.
“I just want to say ‘thank you’ to all the customers who have made our store successful and keep coming back,” said owner Jerri Ann Currey. “We appreciate everyone and truly enjoy the camaraderie that has formed.”
A complete line of scrapbooking and craft supplies is offered at The Scrapbook Store, and stock is always being updated. Products include basics such as paper, pens, albums, stickers, scissors, beads, paper cutters, adhesives and card stock. Other items include carrying cases, idea books, die-cut machines, specialty paper, organizers and much more.
Summer hours for The Scrapbook Store are now in effect: Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call (918) 376-2481 or go online to www.owassoscrapbookstore.com for more information about crop nights, classes or the upcoming CK Convention.
