Hi all!!!! I hope everyone has had an amazing holiday and has a wonderful and safe New Years!!!
We have loads of news for you for the New Year at Scrapbook Emporium.

First, we would like to clear up any mis-information that has gotten out. We are NOT closing, we were never closing... we had thought about moving locations but we have decided against that. We will remain at 2316 N. Alexander and look forward to providing scrapbook products, classes and crops to you for as long as you will have us! We have had a wonderful first year and have met so many amazing people. It's been pretty tremendous... I can't imagine better people that have come through our doors. I thank the Lord everyday for the new friends, and wonderful people that have been introduced into my life!

We have given alot of thought to the new years and we are implementing some new hours starting January 3rd. We will be open weekly Wednesday thru Saturday, 10-5:30pm. We also have had a few safety issues so our doors are always locked. Normally we can see and hear you if you are at the door but if not we have a doorbell outside that you can ring. We are currently looking into getting a buzzer system but have not been able to find one yet.

We are having a sale on product for the first week of January. All product will be 30% off through the first week of January. We are so excited about the Winter CHA and are trying to make room for all the new product we are anticipating! We got this week two new lines of product from Little Yellow Bicycle plus new Disney papers!
