Last Saturday my friend L and I went to Scrap It! --a scrapbook store in Hermitage, TN. What a truly great place! I don't get over there nearly as often as I would like because going across town is like going on a trek around the world for me. It just doesn't happen very often. I remember my very first vsit to Scrap It a few years ago. Even then it was awesome! It has a comfortable feel, things are easy to find and grouped in ways that make sense (at least to me). They have a generous selection of textured Bazzill and plenty of Chatterbox, Karen Foster, Scenic Route, and other famous paper companies. They are the flag ship for Lil Davis as JB is a regular there. Post Modern Stamps can also be found there.
Scrap It! expanded not too long ago, and the extra space is put to good use for classes and crops, both of which are very popular there.
One of the most amazing things about the store is not for sale. The samples hanging on the walls of Scrap It! make the trip a worthwhile adventure! But wait--I'm not even sure we should call them samples. They aren't really. They are scrapbook layouts and projects made by true scrappers. Trust me...there are no laminated layout copies provided by manufacturers hanging in this store! Their beautiful works are created by owner Anne Kelly, her employees and friends. If you love layers, creativity, catchy titles, genuine journaling, dimension, bold and unusual use of products, and quality photos, you'll feel like you stepped inside a favorite idea book when you step inside Scrap It! No matter what your preferred style, I'm betting you'll find something that delights your senses.
