Just thought I would let everyone know about this event in Springfield.

Shop & Crop at The Warehouse on September 24th

Don't miss the first annual Shop & Crop event at The Warehouse! On Saturday, September 24th, people from all over Central Illinois will converge on The Warehouse (2548 So First St, just south of Ash St). Shop at over 20 vendor booths from 9am-6pm. Admission to the shopping is FREE and so is the parking! Stores from Champaign, Peoria, Washington, Canton, Litchfield, Lake Zurich, and Springfield will be there. Additional vendors include representatives from Creative Memories, Stampin' Up, Close to My Heart. Fresh Impressions will be on site to do embossing on your album covers & spines so DON'T FORGET to bring your albums!!

The crop party starts at 6pm and goes until midnight. Tickets for the crop are available at our store and cost just $25 in advance (they'll be $30 on the day of the show). Your crop ticket price includes dinner, admission to the crop, a goodie bag, & chances at great door prizes. Chris Murphy of WNNS will be the dj at the event.

I currently am trying to finish small gift albums for my husbanbs friends who went to Vegas with us and I'm sick of them too.

I am also trying to get current with my kids books. According to my albums my dd is 6 (actually she just turned 11) and my son is 3 (he will turn 7 in Nov.).

I am also trying to take the photography lessons on this board.

All my sisters wanted me to make them albums. I told them they have to take a class. They did and now 3 of them are hooked.

If you go on the Main Index and go down to Photography, click on that, and there is a Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 just started today. I'm really learning a lot about my camera and different ways to take pics.

Is anyone going to the Scrap Odyssey in November? I think it is the weekend of the 4th & 5th. It is at the Civic Center in Peoria. I have a website if anyone is interested just PM me and I'll get that to you. There are several crops going on, classes, exhibit hall and mini classes that sound really cool.

Breast cancer. They are donating some of the proceeds to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer research. They are having a silent auction and some raffles. This is the first time I am scrapping there. The store name is A Scrapbookers Legacy.

You can bring whatever you want to work on. They supply a die cut machine and some cutters.

Hi all,

We are going to be moving up to IL in the spring- Dh will be working at the Speedway, so we started looking in Joliet, We looked in Sandwich today- what a neat little town, and tomorrow we are heading over to look at a house in Sauk village.

I haven't read the whole thread to see where you all are, but I will be and hopefully I will find someone to scrap with up here since i am leaving all my scrapping buddies in NC (they are upset, cause I am the one with all the cool toys)

There is a great store called Scrapbookers Legacy on 95th street at Cicero in Oak Lawn. There is a another called Acute Scrapbook on Pulaski between 111th and 115th. There is also Archivers in Orland Park.

Hope that helps!!

Hello everyone!!!

I finally found the Illinois forum!!! Yaaayyy!!! I just moved a couple of months ago from the North Side of Chicago to Joliet. What a wonderful find when I found out I was 5 minutes from JoAnn's, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Scrapbook Lane. This is too much! As you probably have figured out that I'm in these stores quite often...

My family used to own a Ben Franklin in Rantoul, IL, but we had to close down b/c superstore syndrome...WM moved into town...couldn't compete w/the low prices...but I shop WM even so! Not much you can do about it.

I was mistaken. The Scrap Shack isn't in Joliet. It's somewhere in St. Charles, off of Randall Rd. I heard that it's a really good place to go! Once I find where St. Charles is I'm there!!!

UPDATE: I pulled this off of their website. I should've googled them before hand to save me the hassel right? haha! Hope you girls love it!

I'm not from Moline but some general stores I would shop are Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Joann's. Michaels accepts competitor coupons which is such a deal! Another one of my favorites is Archiver's but I don't think that's around that area. Is it?

I'm not south of Decatur, but east, in Charleston, about 40 minutes away. We occasionally camp at Lake Shelbyville--lovely place! I shop at Daisy Lane in Mattoon. It's huge, organized thematically, and may be worth a visit from Shelbyville if you've never been there.

Melinda,
I love to go there. It is so huge. I get there about once a month. I live about 15 minutes from Shelbyville in the country.

Just to let you know that a new store is opening in Delavan if anyone is near there. I don't know the name and I don't know exactly when they are going to open.

Did anyone go to the store in Peoria that is going out of business? I think today she has everything 75% off, tomorrow is her last day.

Hi Dee!!

My sis lives in Joliet (well she says shorewood, but her addy is Joliet)

I live in Midlothian.

Is there any stores close to you that you like to shop at?

Where do you scrapbook? Do you go to crops?

Oh there is a goldmine near me. I have a Michael's, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, and Scrapbook Lane near me! I shop at all the stores. I recently moved from the NorthSide where I wasn't as close to scrapbook store s as I am now. I'm loving it!

I usually scrapbook at home. I've never been to a crop. Are there scrapbook store s in Midlothian? I know exactly where that is because some years ago I used to live in Country Club Hills, but don't recall anything in the area.

It's funny out here because I'm right in between Romeoville, Plainfield, LockPort, and CrestHill and it seems like my city should be everything but Joliet.

No, there are not any scrapbook store s in Midlo.

We have Hobby Lobby in Tinley, Archivers in Orland and Scrapbookers Legacy in Oak Lawn. There is also a larger scrap store in Downers Grove.

My sister has been going to Scrapbook Lane often. She really likes that store.

We have crops at our school averaging once a month. The girl who does them, has them for 4-5 months in a row, then she needs a break. They are 12 hour crops for $25 and all food is included. She also lets everyone use her sizzix machine and punches. She also invites 2 stores to set up and sell merchandise. Lots of fun!!
