For three years, The Scrapbook Store in Owasso has been providing a playground for adults; customers can spend hours having fun as they attempt to preserve history. The demographics of scrapbook enthusiasts have been changing. Because everyone has photos and memories of family and friends, scrapbooking is obviously something that everyone can enjoy, despite age, gender, religion and culture.
At The Scrapbook Store, there are rows and rows of cardstock and vellum paper, cards, stamps, ink, stickers galore and embellishments of all sorts. The list goes on. The Scrapbook Store carries one of the most complete selections of craft and scrapbooking supplies available in the area, and it is competitive with local department store prices.
“Whatever you’re looking for, The Scrapbook Store is sure to have it,” says Jerri Ann Currey, owner of The Scrapbook Store. “Our staff is made up of confirmed scrapaholics who know the latest and greatest products; they stay informed about new crafting techniques. What’s more, we enjoy sharing our love of the craft with other like-minded souls.”
The benefits of cropping at The Scrapbook Store are incredible. Croppers receive discounts and punches on their punch cards. Additionally, during each cropping event, a “super secret sale” is available for croppers only. “The products on sale vary each night of cropping, but they’re well worth the suspense,” Currey mentions. Scrapbook classes are held Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and cropping events are held Fridays and Saturdays. Enrollment fees range from $5 to $15 for each session. Stop by or check out The Scrapbook Store online at www.owassoscrapbookstore.com for the current calendar.
The Scrapbook Store now offers custom die cuts. Customers can get personalized titles, names and die cuts from a variety of paper. The store has made items for scrapbook pages, posters, signs, school projects and more. Although the cost of this service varies according to the item, it is generally very affordable.
As most scrapbookers know, the craft is a calming addiction. Scrapbooking gives a person time to reminisce. The aspects of one’s life to document through scrapbooking are endless. Scrapbooks can be made for a baby’s first bath, weddings you have attended, a grandchild’s christening, high school prom or every vacation you have taken. The hobby is not just for pictures either. Journals, invitations, drawings, ultrasound pictures and cards can be included. Layouts can be decorated by layering the pictures with cardstock paper and stickers. Scrapbookers are only limited by their imaginations.
The Scrapbook Store is on the cutting edge in providing ideas and new techniques to its customers. Monthly e-mail newsletters are distributed, letting customers know about the latest products, classes and special discounts the store offers. Projects for the classes are featured in the store and online at www.owassoscrapbookstore.com.
The Scrapbook Store offers punch cards for frequent buyers. For every $5 spent at the store before tax, the card is given a punch. On Double Punch Day, buyers can receive two punches for every $5 spent. Once all the spaces on the card have been completely punched out, the customer receives $15 off his or her next merchandise purchase.
The staff at The Scrapbook Store offers the following thought to ponder: “If it’s not scrapbooked, it didn’t happen.” For more information, call (918) 376-2481 or visit the store online. Get started on preserving your memories today.
