Are you out there? From the SF Coast to the shores of Lake Tahoe.... I'm in Rancho Cordova, just east of Sacramento....

A lot has changed since this first posted... Where are we scrapbooking and paper crafting now? In the Sacramento Co. region only Stampers Corner and Beverly's of South Sacramento have survived. If there are any more 'survivors' of the big bog store and financial crash let me know.

I lived many years in the bay area. I am now in modesto, the central valley. I know of at least 9 more girls from nor-cal that are here too. I have actually met a few of them.

Rancho cordova is not all that far from modesto..

I'm also north of the central valley, I'm not so close to Sacramento though, about 2 hrs, but it's nice to know more scrappers from Northern CA.

Amparo I live in Merced!!!!, do you know other scrappers from sb.com that are in the area?

What is your favorite scrapbook store ? All of the little stores have closed except for Helene's. I have to do most of my shopping on-line, or drive to Sacramento to visit my sister and hit Green Tangerine and The Scrapbook Station.

On my yearly trips to Disneyland, my sister and I always shop at Full of Scrap. We love that store!

I finally remembered to stop in Rocklin at the Green Tangerine store that is huge they have everything. I do like Elliots's in Marysville. I hardly ever buy from stores or online, I have been a consultant for different companies for the last few years, I hardly need anything. But Those two stores I like.

I'm working on setting up a scrapbooking garage sale. I have a huge box and a giant stack of paper, but am thinking it would be better to have several people. Wondering if anyone is interested in coming to Novato this summer. I have a large driveway and think it would be fun. Let me know!

In Elk Grove, I like Heart 2 Heart Memories and Stampers Corner. They both accept Coupons from the big stores. At Stampers Corner, you have to spend $25 in regular priced merchandise to use the coupon though. Stamp and Scap is small, but I shop there too. And... EG also has Jo-Anns and Michaels. In South Sacramento, there is Beverly's Unique Scrapbooking. In West Sacramento, there is Scrapbook Addict. I LOVE Green Tangerines in Rocklin, but have only been there twice so far.

i currently live like 5 min from green tangerines, so i have a love hate relationship with that store. i spend way too much money but they have the latest greatest items!

i'm moving to the bay area in two weeks, so i'm really going to miss the stores out here. if someone from the bay is reading this, any good stores you think i should visit?

i'm so envious of those of you near green tangerine! i've heard fantastic things about that store and i recently stocked up on thickers and american craft goodies at the santa clara sb expo in their booth. i might have to make a pilgrimage out there.

in san jose i frequent scrapbook (blossom hill area) island and the new memories live on (cupertino). both stores have rockin owners. in santa cruz there is only scrap it and they dont carry much, but i can always count on them to have the Bazzill i'm looking for.

I know the store u went to in Vacaville, it's a pretty decent store. The store in Fairfield is just ok BUT there is a stamping store u might be interested in just down the street from the scrapping store. If ur interested pm me and I'll give u the info. It's my all time favorite place. It's mainly for cards BUT the store is packed full w/plenty of sb and card making stuff.

Hi girls. I currently live in SoCal but am moving to the Bay Area in 3 weeks. I'm a travel nurse and I'm not sure if they'll house me in Berkeley or Alameda. I'll be working in Berkeley, though.

Any suggestions for lss's there? I found Scrapbook Territory...and based on the photo of their ribbon wall, I'll love it there...

Do you girls ever get together for a crop?

I'm in Redding! I'm the only one on sb.com that I know of!! I love Green Tangerine! We have a sweet store in Redding but it is for sale. I'm holding my breath to see what happens. The store in Anderson (never very good) closed last year. I travel to Oregon a lot and hit all the stores on the I-5 corridor. That is FUN!! --Karen

Hi there,

I live in North Highlands which is just outside Sac., near Antelope, Rancho Cordova, Orangevale, Citrus Heights, etc....

I am interested in hooking up with others in the area. Maybe there is a scrap group, or a crop night? If not, maybe we can start something?? Anyway, I'd love to chat with those who are interested.
