Scrapbook Shopping Across the States

Yikes!  I’ve been gone awhile!  I’ve been traveling…internet access was SCARCE and so…no posts L  Now I’m back and I want to share what I’ve been up to J  In my travels the past few weeks, I thought it would be fun to pop in scrapbook stores along the way.  I frequented several Hobby Lobby stores in New Mexico.  Gosh I LOVE Hobby Lobby! 

The most fun I had though was searching for scrapbook stores when I passed through big cities.  In Flagstaff, Arizona I came across this really cute store called About Memories and More. 

I was fortunate to come across a great deal on a Xyron machine!  I was exicted J There are a lot of cute project inspirations throughout the store and some really great product. 


The crop room in the back is fantastic!  There was a class going on when I was there, taught by the store owner.  She's super nice and although she was busy teaching she also took the time to make sure I got the help I needed while shopping.  This was a great stop and I recommend it to anyone in the area or if you are just passing through like I was, to stop by and say hi, take a look around and see what goodies just have to have!  For more info, go the website

Another great stop was in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 Scraps Galore, this is an awesome store.  I’m a Quickcutz fan and let me tell you, this store has a vast selection of die cuts.  They have TONS of great product ,definitely a lot of my favorites like Simple Stories, Basic Grey, Bo bunny, Quick Quotes, Echo Park, Authentique just to name a few.  And can you believe I had the dumb luck of showing up on Sale day!  Woohoo!


 I picked up a bunch of great stuff, new dies, paper, embellies, etc.  The staff is really nice and super helpful.  The crop room is amazing also.  I was there on a Friday night and even inquired about doing a drop in crop…sadly they weren’t offering one that night.  Bummer. I would most definitely come back to this store the next time I’m in town!  Check out their website for more information

Thanks for such a fabulous shopping experience!

Well, another weekend is upon us.  With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching I know many of you are busy planning, cooking, etc.  I hope you can still find some time to be creative J

Happy Thanksgiving!
