Before scrapbooking, the only way to preserve precious memories was to marinate photographs in vinegar and let them pickle in a cool, dry place. Bask in brine-free keepsakes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of scrapbooking supplies at The Scrapbook Garden in Huntington Beach.
The Scrapbook Garden, an 1,800-square-foot scrapbooking paradise founded by a married couple, teems with decorations and supplies for creating commemorative crafts. Spruce up photos of a parrot's first words with stickers and embellishments ($.50–$8), such as a dainty doily or a celebratory bow, affixed with an assortment of adhesives ($1–$15). Cropping tools ($5–$30) can be used to slice, dice, and finely chop sheets of paper ($.45–$2.50) emblazoned with a full spectrum of colors and prints, from playful trees to trendy houndstooth.
The Scrapbook Garden also hosts a full roster of classes and workshops (not covered by today's Groupon), including a weekly crop night, ideal for exchanging ideas on how to make a scrapbook immortalizing a child's first scrapbook. Enthusiastic instructors helm all craft-centric classes.
