The Store is Officially Closed for Business

A huge "Thank You" to every single customer over the last 4-1/2 years.  It's been fun making friends with so many of you.  There's been a lot of laughs as well as some tears and all of these moments have been cherished.

We hope that you will try to stay in touch with us via this blog, our Facebook page and email.  For those that have asked we will keep your email address for future contact, please be patient as the inbox has been overwhelmed with responses and it will take some time to go through!  But trust that we will keep your email and keep you informed when we plan any get togethers.

Finally, from my family to yours, I wish you the very best Christmas ever and a very blessed 2011.

Thursday, November 18, 2010


After much deliberation and prayer, I’ve decided to close Scrapbooks & Etc. This decision has is not an easy one but the downturn in the economy has deeply affected us. We can no longer stock the latest and greatest items you are longing for.

I want to thank all our customers/friends and scrap buddies for the last 4 1/2 years of pure fun! I’ve laughed and cried with many of you and I will truly miss your visits.

I currently have no specific timeline for a closing date, but I anticipate being closed by the first of the year. It depends in part on how fast the inventory sells. If you know of anyone that could keep the store in Harrisburg, please get in touch with them or let me know and I will contact them. Otherwise we will be selling the entire inventory and fixtures.

Thank you, again, for giving me the pleasure of being your local scrapbook store for the last 4 ½ years.

The entire store remains at 30% OFF.
Items are disappearing fast so if there is something you were waiting to get, you need to act fast.
No further orders will be placed therefore, nothing will be restocked.
No special orders will be placed.
All items in the 50% OFF section are now 70% OFF.
All Sales are final.

Donna Downey is Returning!

We had so much fun last month in Donna's class we've scheduled her to teach a new class this month! Here's what people were saying after last month's class --

I had a fabulous time in this class. I learned techniques that I can't wait to recreate. Totally worth it! -- Cheri W.

This was a wonderful afternoon of creativity! I learned new techniques & had fun! -- Sharon M.

So Much Fun! Creative, great pace, excellent instruction, we need more classes! -- Pam H.

Don't miss February's class:
You will leave this class with an 8 page, 6x12 mixed-media,
fabric & paper hybrid album!

Nothing makes me happier than a scrapbook bursting at the seams with creative bits of paper, fabrics, ribbons and photos...that is unless it incorporates cardboard, stamping, acrylic and transparencies too! This album is an over the top mixed-media experience blending traditional scrapbooking products in unconventional ways that results in a collected scrapbook of memories that is artistic, personal and rich with vibrant color.

Class Time: 3 hours
Time: 1pm to 4pm

This is a reminder that your Workshop with Donna Downey is this weekend! I hope you are excited as I am!

The class will start promptly at 1:00pm. Please try to arrive prior to 1:00 so you can get settled and ready to create.

It’s time to start preparing your supplies to bring to class so I thought it would be convenient to post the list again. If there is something on the list that you need to purchase prior to the start of class, please call me to check availability and if it’s in stock, I can pull it from the shelf and reserve it for you.

Here’s what you will need to bring with you:
• 2 paint brushes (about ½ to 1”)
• glass jar or mug for water
• heat gun
• small soft cloth or small piece of t-shirt (for a technique not to wear)
• favorite liquid adhesive (i.e.: Zip dry, tacky glue, tombo, etc)
• glue stick
• White acrylic paint
• favorite pieces of ephemera, old book pages, trims, papers or embellishments
(NO MORE THAN WHAT CAN FIT IN A SANDWICH BAGGIE. Yep a sandwich baggie! You can do it, I know you can!)
• Favorite colors of acrylic paint
• Non-Stick Craft Sheet (optional)
• baby wipes and/or paper towels – (I am messy, I use a lot!)
• Ink applicator tool (if you have one/optional)
• Favorite ink pads/colors (optional)
• 5-10 of your favorite stamps mix of words and images (optional but recommended)
• 1 favorite foam stamp (optional)
