This Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day, according to Brooke Snyder, owner of Urban Scrapbooker in the Westgate area. Snyder’s store will be celebrating with a one-day, 25-cent paper sale and other special pricing.
“We initially opened as a scrapbook store, but in the last year we have been focusing on bringing in more products for the card makers and the mixed media artists, and will continue to bring in the latest and the greatest for all paper crafters,” Snyder said.
“Vintage is hot right now,” she added, indicating her large line of Tim Holtz products, including his signature inks, paints, stamps, paper, and embellishments. She also recommends Holtz’s website for projects and how-to videos.
Snyder recently completed certification training for her line of Copic markers, known by designers, anime artists and enthusiasts for shadowing, blending and air-brushing results. The markers, which she carries in 144 colors, can be refilled at her filling station. Copic classes start late May at her store and cover basic through intermediate techniques, including lighting, shading and realistic tones for skin and hair – something regular markers have difficulty doing.
