Christine's Corner for Scrapbooking opened in November, 2009 and is located at I-70 and Noland Road by Price Chopper. This beautiful store caters to both beginning and experienced scrappers with many items that cannot be found anywhere else in the Kansas City area. What makes Christine's truly unique is that she also offers options for non-scrappers. Bring in some photos, pop them in a pre-paid envelope and mark your options (paper, colors, etc.) and in a few days you will receive a completed scrapbook page!
Christine's Corner is the only store in not only the metro area, but several surrounding states, that carries the Unity line of stamps. These unmounted rubber stamps are truly unique, light hearted and easy to store.
Christine's class area is spacious and there are fun, affordable classes to take in bookbinding, mini-albums, paper embroidery, beginner scrapbooking and techniques classes. Crop nights are offered every Friday, equipment rental is also an option. This is a great space for a birthday crop or just a girl's night out.
Christine's also offers professional scanning services. For .29 a photo, bring your thumb drive in and she will scan while you wait. If you have a large amount of photos, bulk photo scanning is your best option. A large white box (approximately 12x12x4) can be purchased for $49.95, fill it with all the photos you want and bring to the store. The photos will be scanned in-house and returned to you on a DVD.
Also offered are those small items that are needed but are annoying to make another stop to buy - like camera batteries, pieces of sandpaper, small amounts of beads and embroidery floss. Christine's Corner is a total memory store - Memory Mixer software makes digital scrapbooking a breeze!
Finally, Christine's just started its "Community Crafter" section, where items from local artists will be offered. For either $20/month and 10% commission or just 20% commission, you can sell your creations without a lot of hassle. Christine's will take care of the rest while the artist gets back to creating art.
Whether it's a special paper you're looking for, or that perfect embellishment, Christine's probably has it or can find it for you.
