What Do You Miss?

Postby Sharmaine » Jul 22nd, '12, 2:10 am

Been thinking about the scrap companies that have folded or been added to bigger companies.
Thinking about the products they made and what is still around and what's gone.
Thinking about magazines that have come and gone
So I have a question for you...
what product/supply/line/magazine do you miss?

The only thing I truly miss is our local scrap store. :( I miss the crops, shopping, and all the fun I had there. If it weren't for the Internet, I would feel so out of touch with the scrappy community. Thank you, Christine, for providing a scrappy home for me/us!

I MISS SASSAFRAS, but Rebecca and Tim have taken to designing for other companies, so I have a feeling I will be able to get my Sass fix every so often :)

I miss having a great local scrapbook store. I would love to have the option to go to crops and buy current products. My mom has a great one in Detroit, MI and I soooo wish I lived there with her.

I agree, I miss the local scrapbooking store. MINE :)
I miss the community that we had built, the crops, classes and friendships. It was so fun.
I think I also miss the excitement to a certain degree. When the industry was really exploding and things were so new and fun. Glitter! Sewing on Pages! rub-ons! OMG.... it was just so ridiculous and fun.
I guess from a spending view point, it's much better not to be so frenzied. :) I don't have to have all the new stuff, just the good stuff.

I miss Hambly...I had just found them about a year or so ago. And no...I haven't lived under a rock, I have just been scrapping since 2009!!! And my local store did not carry them. I have a few pieces that I will probably hoard now.

I do miss Sassafras some also.

I do too.
I loved them during the deer collections. All that whimsie stuff. My fave!!
I saw some Studio Calico - Sassfras papers yesterday where I was teaching. They didn't call out 'buy me buy me' though.

I miss Hambly and Sassafras Lass so much! I also miss having an LSS nearby. I used to go to crops at a place in Delaware back in 2000-2001. I haven't attended crops regularly since then, and sometimes I miss it.
And Denise, I really wish you still owned a scrapbook store in CT. I'd definitely come crop there! :)

i miss Hambly. i hope another avenue will come along for transparencies. I would say i miss sass but i keep seeing designs, like in Basic Grey Soliel, that is so reminiscent of sass that i am sure it has to be their designs. I miss Scenic Route..those grid papers that are like no others. I love how they mixed bold patterns and tiny patterns.

I miss Elsie's creations! I remember that it was so fun to look at her layouts in magazines and online when she first came out with her book...

It is called Scrappy Chic on 8 Mile Road (I even follow them on FB). They win the scrapbooking store local award every year. I went there with my mom once when I visited and I almost fell over when I saw everything they had there. Sigh ... I wish 2 of the stores we used to have in Rochester were still open.

first, i miss my LSS. i worked there for over 5 years and i really miss the customers, the classes, the crops, the new products, my friends who i worked with and, let's be honest, the BIG discount my boss gave us.

i'm also missing sassafras ( i know they are designing for others, but it's not the same), hambly, scenic route grid and lined papers and karen russell's lines at creative imaginations.
