Customers can attend two layout classes on their own or bring a friend along to one class and work arts-and-crafts muscles together. During each lesson, students make a two-page keepsake adorned with photos, stickers, and decorative paper. Except for adhesive supplies, paper-cutting tools, and personal objects, such as treasured pictures or strands from Rollie Fingers's mustache, all class materials are provided. Alternatively, festoon memory archives or tree-house bathrooms with hundreds of patterned papers ($0.48+). Bazzill-brand colors ($0.60) replenish low cardstock supplies, and collection kits ($12.50+) start novice memory makers off on the right foot.
The Paper Trail
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.
