Though now used primarily for preserving mementos, scrapbooks were initially employed to catalog leftover dinner bits for family dogs. Feed your creative side with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of scrapbook supplies, classes, or craft events at The Scrapbook Shoppe.
The Scrapbook Shoppe sells a variety of scrapbook supplies, holds how-to classes, and provides a fully equipped workspace for crafty memory-preservers. Guests can browse the store's selection of paper-crafting tools, custom papers, stamps, stickers, and inks, or place a special order for products not in stock. The Scrapbook Shoppe's regular classes, designed around specific themes, welcome both newbies and old hands. During Make 'n' Take sessions, attendees learn new techniques from expert instructors and leave with completed projects in hand ($15 per person including materials). Regular events known as crops—or stretches of open workshop time—bring bookmakers together to discuss scrapping, plot future tomes, and trim photos into the shape of X-Acto knives ($10 per person). On-site tools such as die-cut machines, specialty punches, and wireless printers give works a professional touch.
A spacious outlet with fully stocked shelves, The Scrapbook Shoppe's comfy chairs and ferny plants create an oasis for gluey-fingered wanderers. A series of 8-foot tables let patrons easily spread out and dig into new projects. Along with scrapbooking, the shop encourages other creative pursuits such as card making, sparing guests the trouble of braving the treacherous cardstock mines of Siberia to send birthday tidings.

- I've been for just a few classes so far- but I really look forward to going because it's a great place away from work and home where I can scrap big or small ideas! They have a great selection to choose from, tools to borrow and everyone is very friendly. – Anne, Yahoo! Local
