Scrapbooking and crafting has recently become all the rage. Whether you attend scrapbook parties or would rather just look at final creations, it’s always good to know “where to go” to get supplies that are niche and hard to find.
Many scrapbook stores come and go – in an effort to encourage small business and consumerism, I highly recommend that you shop locally from these “Mom & Pops” businesses. If you visit these local scrapbook/stamp stores (LSS) be sure to tell them that you read about them in the Scrapbook Guide on IEShineOn.com.
INLAND EMPIRE SCRAPBOOK STORES
Stamp Your Heart Out (Claremont) – Stamp Your Heart Out is very quaint and the employees are very sweet and helpful. Located in the Claremont Village, the shop has stamps, stickers, embellishments and some scrapbooking papers (for seasonal/holiday crafting).
Wooten’s Scrapbook Co. (Ontario) – Wooten’s has a very large inventory of all scrapbooking supplies. From baby, to Disney princess, to vacations, they have a great variety of papers and embellishments.
Collective Journey (Redlands) – Collective Journey is a store that every scrapbooker or card maker must visit. They have a monthly calendar of events, including late night crop events. They also have Open House Events and Garage Sales which you can pick up great bargains on craft cast-offs. Crafting is always taking place at Collective Journey and their sales associates are very kind and cheerful.
The Stampin’ Post (Temecula) – The Stampin’ Post is the place to be if you want to have a fun crafty time in Temecula. A recent shop customer tells me that the owner is very personable and also gets craft-celebrities to teach from time to time.
This N That Scrapbooking (Chino Hills) – Blink and you might miss This N That Scrapbooking – it’s also a dry cleaners and business center! They have a lot of fun crafting activities including specialty classes with instructors from Prima Marketing and Copic Marker.
Jollene’s Paperie (Banning) – This store carries a very large variety of inventory and is a hidden gem in Banning. The best way to keep up with Jollene’s Paperie is to follow them on Facebook. They announce upcoming classes, discounts and sales on their wall.
Prima Marketing Flowers (Chino) – A big industrial warehouse is filled with “deals” from Prima Marketing Flowers and a serious amount of space for scrapbook groups and individuals. They have tables set up within the warehouse and offer Crop & Shop Events. These events are a modest price of $20 for nine hours of scrapping. The prices are outlet for sure as most items sell 3 for $10 or 8 for $20. I also got a Free Make-n-Take (to do on site or at home) with my purchase. To be notified of special crop events and classes, be sure to follow “Prima Marketing Flowers” on Facebook and become a member of their email list.
