Owner of The Paper Trail and avid crafter Karen has made paper her medium of choice for more than a decade. Why? Because “scrapbooking is all about leaving a paper trail of you…what we have done, who we are,” she writes on her welcome page. Not only do Karen and her staff supply patrons with the goods to leave their own trail––from patterned paper and albums to pearls and rhinestones for embellishing crafts or friends while they sleep––but also the techniques. Through regular classes and events such as scrapping parties, they teach the art of cropping, crafting cards and scrapbooks, and even building photo albums from scratch. They also create invitations and cards or custom albums for customers.

All greenery grown onsite is tax-free.
