There is also one on Elbow drive - about 10 blocks west of where you are staying called Paper pastimes.

Check it out too.

Default Calgary... real paradise

Thank you ladies!
Well I finaly got to Calgary. I saved 300.00 to spend... and Scrappers Paradise made it a treat.

I must say their location on Macleod trail was the BEST craft store I have been to. Open spaces - and lots of inventory. Stock arranged by manufacturer - and also some theme arrangements. Traditional supplies - and large digital section. Wood mount stamps - acrylic stamps. Specialty organization tools - and plain tackle boxes.

I could not ask for more... This is the store I would design. Staff who made me feel at home, eager to help, and full of suggestions so I wouldn't miss out on anything on the Calgary craft scene.

Not to mention all regular price merchandise was 20% off, and their 25% clearance was 50% off. I love it when retailers are making room for more product. I picked up some stamps I've been looking for, and some papers from my favorite line that I haven't seen in Vancouver (narratives by Karen Russell, I love you Karen!).

I will be passing these comments onto the store manager/owner.
So, thanks to the ladies who suggested this store.

I am bookmarking this....I am going there in July, thanks for all the advice! I was there last year and I had a store written down and I wanted to go there, dh said it was miles away blah blah blah (do not know why I listen to men!) and then driving to the airport I saw it, it was 5 mins from where we were staying, I was so MAD, and we did not have time to stop! This time WE ARE GOING!!!

There's a new scrapbook store in the NE to check out.... I'm a little partial cuz I work there but I think it's a great little store. It's called The Scrapbook Pantry... check out our website (which is still under some construction). Our aim has been to try to offer items that can't be found elsewhere in Calgary. We have bulk ribbons, brads, buttons and eyelets which people seem to love.

We are located on Country Hills Blvd, just a short jog west of the Deerfoot.

If you can manage a trip to the south location of Scrapbookers Paradise, I recommend it too... it's the largest location and has the best selection of their stores. I find a lot of their products are the same "run of the mill" stuff you find elsewhere though.

Another neat shop way down in the south is the Scrap Yard.

Hi Hi!

There are a few good places around, so here's a list with links to their websites with addresses!

Scrapbookers Paradise - Mostly Scrapbooking (duh) but they have some good accessories like the scor-pal, nesties, etc. They tend to be a little pricey though, so if you're on a strict budget you might want to go there last! The south location, on MacLeod is their 'main' location, so it's the biggest. The north location is small.

Paper Pastimes - I like this one the best, because it's close to my house and i find that they carry A LOT of stamps and some really cool paper. It's small (cozy?) but fun.

Of course we have 6 different Michael's around, but as far as I know none of them are the 'new' ones. I like the one in deerfoot meadows the best, it's one of the newest ones in the city, and they tend to have some cool stuff.

Hope that helps out a little bit! I'm moving to BC over the summer, to a place that doesn't even have ONE scrapbook store, let alone a choice... so I'm trying to enjoy the variety while I have the chance!!

Let me know if I can be any more help, you can PM me if you want, I live in South Calgary!

There is another store in the south part of Calgary, called The Scrap Yard. It's a small store, but packed with great embellishments and the latest accessories. The staff is great and very helpful, and fun! They carry awesome papers, lots of Basic Grey. It's where I do most of my shopping! It's in Canyon Meadows, just off of Macleod Trail.

The Scrap Yard's address is: 2118 - 380 Canyon Meadows Dr SE. It is tucked in a little strip mall (close to Arby's), just north of the Canyon Meadows overpass that goes over top of Macleod Trail (it is on the east side of Macleod). It has a bright pink awning above the store entrance - you can't miss it! They have a web-site but I don't know what it is, off-hand. They've been open for business for about 1 1/2 years now I think.

I would try to visit Paper Pastimes (but, be warned, last time I stepped inside those doors I dropped nearly $200 - but we're keeping quiet about that):

On top of the stores already mentioned (they're all great by the way), there's also a new store on Fairmount Drive SE called Pam's Photos & Memories Scrapbooks. She doesn't have a lot for stamping, but does have some nice papers. And she carries copics and has the new polar white flower soft in stock.

There's also Scrapbook Sally on Northmount Drive NW. Again, not very much in the way of stamping, but they have a really nice selection of paper.

We also have quite a few dollar stores that have some pretty good scrapbooking supplies (like paper flowers, brads, etc.). I've even been able to buy quite a few nice stamps once in a while from the dollar store.

Have fun while you're here.

ETA: Scrapbookers Paradise has two stores in Calgary. The main store is in the south end on McLeod Trail S (by across the street on the north end of Walmart at Southland) and the second store in in the north end in the Crowfoot Shopping Mall. They have a nice 70% off section where I have gotten so many really good deals.

Ooooooooooh no! Another store?!?! I hadn't heard of the one on Fairmount Dr. Even scarier, that street runs right through my neighborhood!!! Somebody come and lock me in my house!!!!

Reid's Stationery on 17th Ave had some really neat handmade paper the last time I was in there, but that was a long time ago. I don't know if they still carry stuff like that... it's been that long.

If you're looking for stamps, Paper Pastimes is definitely the place to go!!!! Carole, the owner, is wonderful and very helpful.

If you're in Winners, I've noticed that they've started carrying a little bit of stuff too... paper packs and actual scrapbooks mostly. There's never too much, but you might score a find.
