The shelves at Personal Scrapbook brim with all manner of scrapbooking and stamping supplies from brands such as Authentique and Graphic 45. Personal Scrapbook doesn’t just supply the materials, though, the staff hosts frequent crops, where they open up the cropping area for everyone to come and scrapbook together. Each of the 20 personal cropping stations has two electrical outlets and a comfortable, adjustable chair. While in the area, guests can bring their own mat to use the shop's Cricut station—equipped with both the Cricut Expressions and Personal Cricut machines—or use the Cuttlebug die cutter/embosser, Sizzix die cutter, 20+ shape scissors, stamps, and more. Reference books and the staff serve as muses, and guests can also connect to free WiFi to browse for inspiration.
In addition to the open crops, the staff teaches classes with subjects such as scrapbook layouts, Cricut, and various techniques. They also host private parties for all ages, which make for more memorable birthdays than mercilessly beheading yet another piñata.
