Owner Terri Musser is planning lots of fun events in November at Simply Scrapbooks.
Americans are always looking for the best of everything, and that includes a good deal. We will drive miles out of the way to save five cents on a gallon of gas, and we will certainly drive out of our way for our favorite pizza. And when we find a store with thousands of choices and all the latest in designs and styles, it just makes sense to drive a little farther in order to shop the best. For many, “the best” is a perfect description of Simply Scrapbooks scrapbooking store. Located in Claremore, Simply Scrapbooks has an impeccable reputation backed by superior customer service, which gives even the most frugal shopper reason enough to make the trip.
Located in the Ne-Mar Center at 965 W. Will Rogers Blvd., Simply Scrapbooks is proud to say they are the largest scrapbook store in northeast Oklahoma. They opened their doors over eight years ago. “Our store has over 4,400 square feet packed with lots of fun and unique embellishments, coordinating papers, all the extras and ideas galore,” says owner Terri Musser. “We have over 800 colors of cardstock. Who knew there were that many colors? Chances are good we will have the perfect match for any crafting project you are working on.”
Scrapbooking is an easy project that most people can do. The sky is the limit, with some choosing to make their scrapbook pages works of art and others taking a simpler route. Either way, there is no wrong way to express yourself. “Some people think this is a hard craft to do, but each page can be as much or as little as you want,” Terri says. “Scrapbooking is really pairing pictures with stories. It is as simple as that.” Sounds easy enough, right? And, Simply Scrabooks makes it even easier, offering weekly crops and classes so even the first timer can leave feeling like an expert.
Most would be surprised to find out that the best selling items are not just for scrapbooks. They sell tons of paper and adornments for all kinds of cards. Place cards, note cards, Christmas cards, calendars, recipe cards, and gift tags are just a few of the great crafting ideas you will find. “These are great craft projects,” explains Terri. “And everyone can do them. Best of all, it is a project that you can complete in one evening. People like knowing that they have created something special, and the fact that they made it themselves makes it even more special.”
When you visit Simply Scrapbooks, you will be taken aback by the level of customer care that you will receive. The staff listens to customers and creates fun shopping events to fit their lifestyle. The month of November is filled with super shopping days; some during the week and some on the weekend; some during the day and some at night. Terri has everyone covered. There really is an event for everyone! Here is the list of special days at Simply Scrapbooks, so mark your calendar and make plans to be there.
November 2 is their Election Day promo. November 5-7, be sure to make time in your social calendar for a fabulously fun open house. Stop by Simply Scrapbooks for yummy fall treats while getting inspired for the upcoming holiday season. Don’t miss a new selection of holiday projects and kits, all designed to help your holidays be stress free.
Simply Scrapbooks is hosting a Christmas Card Bar November 10-12. You can use border punches, buttons, Scrappers Spool, Glimmer Mist and much more. Glue sticks will be provided but you can also bring adhesive from home.
On November 13, drop by for the Stacey Atchison Card Class. Make your own Christmas card sets are available, designed by Stacey Atchley, author of the popular “Sketches for Cardmaking” book. And, let’s not forget that November is the month to be thankful. November 14-16 is Simply Scrapbooks’ “We’re Thankful For You” event. “We know we would not still be in business if it weren’t for you, our loyal customers,” says Terri. “Come by and let us show you how much you are appreciated.”
And last but certainly not least is November 30, when they will celebrate “I Love Paper” day.
