ROFL!! I'm going to be in Houston, Texas next week.

Are you coming to Oahu? I'm still fairly new to this but I would love to meet someone and get some pointers.

I'm moving to Honolulu on August 1st and would love to meet up with someone to show me all of the(if any) LSS. My husband is in the airforce and we will be there at least 3 years.

southernbelle - Hickam has a decent craft store with a small scrapbook section. About a few miles off base is the Scrapbook Clubhouse in Aiea. If you're a stamper, the NEX has a good selection of Hero Arts stamps.

craftwithaloha-thanks! What about Ben Franklins? I saw there was one there, but is there a good scrapbook section in it. The one we have here (CA) now has a huge scrapbook section.

I wasn't too impressed with the Ben Franklin's scrapbook section, but it's been several months since I last stopped by.

It actually depends upon which Ben Franklin you go to, but their scrapbooking supply is not impressive. There is a craft store in Aiea, across from the Pearlridge Mall in the little shopping area, that has a nice selection of papers, stickers, pens, etc. I haven't been inside for over a year, but I have driven by to see that it is still open. :-) I hope that by changing jobs, I'll have more free time to get out of the house and get more scrapbooking supplies.

I'm going to Oahu. DH is in the Army and we have to be there in September. Maybe we can get a group going.

Gee, my DH and I are looking at moving to the Houston area sometime between October and February. He was in the army and got out while he was here. He's been in Hawaii for 15yrs now and moving again is kinda scarey for him. I would still like to get together to scrapbook a little before I leave since I haven't done it much in a group setting.

Do any of you Hawaiian scrappers live on the Big Island or is there a Ben Franklin Craft Store near in your area?

I am asking because when we were on vacation in Hawaii/The Big Island last month, I bought some awesome, high quality grosgrain ribbon at the Ben Fraklin store in Hilo and I would love to have more of it! The brand name was Comex and it was on a white cardboard spool with a red bull and the Comex logo on the front. The ribbon was not with the other spooled ribbon, it was on wire racks near the front of the store and it was $2.99 per spool and there was like 20 yards on the spool!

I have looked for the company online, but I cannot find any retailers for Comex anywhere - the problem seems to be that they are stationed out of Mexico and maybe they don't have any retailers in the continential US??? Anyway, sorry to ramble on forever, but if anyone shops at Ben Franklin would you mind seeing if you can find this ribbon? The only colors I bought were a metallic/shiny blue and a metallic/shiny red. I would love to have the chocolate brown they had or plain (non shiny) red or white or any other color too! I will gladly send you a money order or PayPal to cover the cost of the ribbon and shipping, as well as some extra goodies for your time and gas. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks in advance!
Katie

Katie:

here's what I found out....Ben Franklin only orders the Comex ribbon in April and May because everyone down here uses the ribbon to make ribbon leis from them. So it was a one time purchase only. They still have comex ribbon left, but not in the colors you're looking for. I found only black, blue and green in the thin grosgrain ribbon ($2.99/roll). I also found a yellow/orange comex grograin ribbon ($4.99/roll with 27 yards), this is I'm guessing here, about 1/2" wide.

I'm gonna check one more Ben Franklin, but I won't get a chance to get there until this weekend. In the meantime, did you want me to pick up the ones that I did find or no need? just let me know.

thanks!

Dawn, thank you SO MUCH for checking on the ribbon for me! Wow, great investigative reporting too!

I would definitely love to have the thin black ribbon. What color of blue and green ribbon did they have? Was it baby blue, country blue, primary blue, or navy blue? Was it mint green, sage green, primary green, or hunter green? I'm not trying to be a pain, just trying to figure out what color it is so I know if I will use it or not.

Thanks again for all your help! I will definitely send you some nice scrapping goodies for all your trouble!

I went to Ben Franklin's today. I signed up to be a member so I expect to be going there at least once a month. Going back there tomorrow to use my coupon and maybe check out Scrapper's Den. I know it's like right there, isn't it Dawn? I'll look it up online.

Yup. Scrapper's Den is about 1 block down and across the street from ben franklin. You gotta be careful going down cause there's a one way entrance and a one way exit; so if you miss it you gotta make 2 u turns.

Have fun!! hey maybe we could meet up...I was planning on going to ben franklin tomorrow too! lol

Hi there all you Hawaii Scrappers!!

I started my own thread, but obviously before I found this one. I just wanted to find a place to connect with other scrappers here in HI. I have a good friend here who scraps with me, but nice to possibly meet up with others too.

I am a medium person here - not really new to scrapbooking, but really have gotten back into it again. And I have been here on Oahu for about a year and a half - DH in AF. Love it here and want to stay forever.

If you all get together sometime, please let me know. I may be able to join you and bring a friend...

Nice to meet you!!
Nancy

Hi Laura,

Welcome to Hawaii. Not sure if you had gotten to the Craft store yet, but they have a lot of really nice things. Plus every 3 thursday from 5-9 they hold a crop in the store and give away door prizes. Also check out Ben Franklin, Scrappers Den, and the Scrapbook clubhouse (they hold Midnight madness 1-2 a month I think the next one is Jan 14).

My fav store right now is Fisher Hawaii - it is awesome!! Cheepest Bazzil paper in town and lots of stuff. Only thing be prepared to hunt through stuff a bit unorganized but well worth it!!

PM me if you have any other questions or need more details.

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!

Hi Everyone -

I am new to scrapbook.com and totally new to scrapbooking (not new to Hawaii though - my family is from here).

I've been really hesitant about starting scrapbooking (don't really consider myself the creative type) but have always been sort of a wannabe. I met a really nice, helpful and non-intimidating CM consultant and hosted a CM Get Together last week! It was lots of fun and I'm anxiously awaiting my order.

I'm also interested in digital scrapbooking , so I've been doing some beginner tutorials that I've found on various sites.

I think my CM consultant is starting crops this year in the Newtown (Aiea) area. If you're interested, please PM me!

I'm looking forward to doing my first layouts, learning a lot and getting to know all of you!

Melissa

Be careful, you will be addicted very fast. Let me know about any crops. I am not a huge CM fan, but I am always up to cropping with new folks.

Hey Nancy -
I can see that this can be addicting...is it a bad sign that I'm already hesitating telling my husband how much I'm spending?

I'll be sure to let you know of any crops!

Did I think I saw you at the scrapbook clubhouse crop the other weekend? Wasn't sure??

You just missed the one last Thursday, next one isn't til February - the 16th I think, whatever the 3rd Thursday of the Month is. I am beginning to think they need to expand to maybe two thursdays a month. we all love to go.

Hope to see you there!!
