Though everyone likes the look of a glossy loved one, few can afford human lamination. Preserve the past in paper with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $15 worth of scrapbooking materials, plus a six-hour Late Late Nighter cropping session at Scrap Happy Sisters in Glendale (a $30 total value).
Scrap Happy Sisters' homey store keeps crafters well stocked in the latest paper provisions and scrapbooking supplies. Once or twice a month, the shop thrusts open its doors after hours for an evening of late-night communal crafting (6 p.m.–12 a.m. Fridays; 5 p.m.–11 p.m. select Saturdays). Participants first purchase fuel for their six-hour snipping binge, such as a 12" x 12" album ($13–$32), sheets of patterned paper ($0.65+ each), and various memory-enhancing embellishments, before wielding the store's vast arsenal of scrapbooking weaponry to reshape raw materials into a worthy tribute to a family vacation or time spent in Attica. Working elbow-to-elbow with other paste enthusiasts, you'll crop photos and artfully arrange stickers, giving advice to and garnering it from your companions and the stamp-savvy staff. Complimentary sodas and snacks can sustain the festivities until as late as midnight, when the shop's pattern-edged scissors turn into pumpkins. Scrap Happy Sisters also grants Late Late Nighters a 15 percent discount off products purchased for the crop-a-thon.
