Thanks For The Memories

Thanks for the Memories! Our store is now closed and we have no stock left.  Thanks for everyone who dropped by this week to say a final goodbye, you made our hearts sing.  We have enjoyed your friendship and laughter over the last seventeen years and will miss each of you.  Julia has set up a facebook page for any of you who would like to stay in touch and see what happens in our lives and she will keep you updated on scrapbooking things in Calgary too! You can find the page at Paradise Lost YYC  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Paradise-Lost-YYC/365302120312285
Although we won't have Camp Croppin any more, you can still meet up with all your scrapbooking friends at the retreats at the Georgetown Inn in Canmore with Selena from Scrapendipty (AKA the Scrapmobile) for an entire weekend of scrapbooking and delicious food during the fall and winter.  For dates and information see www.georgetowninn.ca or join the mailing list to get updated information on all the retreats and more by emailing info@waymarker.ca and use the subject line scrapbooking.

A huge thanks to our special customer who came in and used all her gift cards to buy the remaining inventory to use as a silent auction item for the Lymphoma/Leukemia society.
 
Best of luck in your scrapbooking in the future,
Sincerely,
Leslie and The Ladies of Scrapbooker's Paradise

SAD NEWS

It is with great sadness that I have made the decision to close Scrapbooker's Paradise effective Saturday August 16th, 2014 at the end of the business day. As many of you are aware, two years ago I signed a lease for the south store. This was a five year deal with two years of lease extension and an option for an additional three years. Our current two year lease expires at the end of August and after 17 years of being in business I have made the difficult decision not to renew the option for the additional three years.
This has been a very difficult decision and I have spent long hours and many tears making it. I also explored with several people the option of having them purchase the store but that did not work out. The scrapbooking industry has been in a steep decline for the last four years as people no longer print out their photos. Recently big chains such as Archivers have gone out of business due to lack of sales. In the last few weeks Two Peas in a Bucket (a huge US online retailer and one of the pioneers of scrapbooking) announced that they will be shutting down and Shutterfly (who print photos and photo books) announced they are going into receivership and putting themselves up for sale.

I sincerely appreciate all our loyal customers and I am personally so sad that I cannot continue to keep the store open as I know there have been many life-long friendships made between our amazing staff and customers. I have enjoyed bringing you the latest and greatest scrapbooking supplies and having our talented staff and teachers show you the newest techniques for almost two decades. It has been such a pleasure working with these talented ladies over the last seventeen years. I have put my heart and soul into the store and appreciate all of you that have supported our classes and events over the years. I know that everyone will greatly miss the store, and our amazing staff and teachers as well as our weekly emails done by our webmaster and our blog team, and all of us will miss each of you!

Should you have any questions or comments you can reach me at comments@scrapbookersparadise.com

Sincerely,
Leslie Lee
Owner
