Busy Scrappin’ enriches scrapbooking projects with an inventory of more than 1,000 crafting supplies and a schedule of classes that advance the skills of beginning and experienced scrappers. Sturdy leaves of Bazzill card stock ($0.69 per 12” x 12” sheet) or double-sided scrapbook paper ($0.79/sheet) support photographs with colorful backdrops or fold into musically challenged accordions. Scrappers can use the shop’s workroom and tools during weekly cropping sessions ($10 for extended sessions; free cropping sessions offered twice a month), or build memory blueprints during two-page-layout classes ($12.50) that focus on paper coordination, edge punch, and other techniques. The Valentine’s Day ($12.75) and penguin-card-making kits ($15) simplify the scrapbooking process with precut pieces, step-by-step instructions, and stick-figure drawings of a happy family. Visitors must provide their own adhesive ($2.49 for tape runner adhesive; $2.99 for a two-pack of refills) for all kits and classes.
At Busy Scrappin’, more than a thousand papers, albums, decorations, and kits surround a comfy workroom filled with hobbyists hard at work. The one-stop scrapbooking emporium is dedicated to fostering a community of likeminded craftsfolk by helping visitors learn new ways to memorialize family outings, little-league triumphs, and scrapbooking-competition victories. Guests drop in to socialize during Friday-night cropping sessions or learn new techniques at weekly, fun-filled workshops. And during regular hours, friendly staffers shepherd patrons through the selection of holiday-themed embellishments, card-making supplies, and paper crafts—eagerly giving suggestions for any upcoming project.
