Tombow Orders

Many of us croppers like to use the tape runners made by Tombow.  We shop around online to purchase them in bulk and can usually find a site that has the Tombow refills for about $2 and units for $3.

Google “Tombow Mono Adhesive”

Ohio Scrapbook Stores

Unfortunately, due to the economy many local scrapbooks stores have been closing their doors. Here’s a few that we like that are still in business. From time to time we get together during their evening or Saturday all-day crops.

Kit Websites

When looking for kits, I think you need to find one that fits your price point. Hopefully they make it easy to unsubscribe. You need to love their samples because companies put together stuff that they like, sure there is a variety, but they tend towards certain trends.  Google Search!

Digital Scrapbooks & Collage Software

I’m starting to play with digital software. There’s a ton of options! Love using my Picture Project software that came with my Nikon camera years ago. Recently took a Photoshop Elements class from Patty, listed below.
