Default Trying to remember an old Scrapbooking Company

I'm trying to remember the name of an old scrapbooking direct sales company that I was with around 2000, maybe 2002. It went out of business shortly after that. It had really bright vibrant colors and kits of scrapbook supplies. I think it was called something like Sweet & Sassy? Does this ring a bell?

Thanks for your help!

Was it Creative Memories? They went out of business some time ago, but maybe they are back now? https://www.creativememories.com/

No, it was something that was only around for a couple years. Not as established as Creative Memories. But thanks for trying!!

Sorry I couldn't help, I am not familiar with any other direct sales scrapbooking companies. Did you ask in the Scrapbooking part of this forum? Maybe someone there will be able to help.

No, though I did subscribe to that for a few years. It was definitely a direct sales company. It went out of business pretty quickly.

The only direct sales company that I remember from that era that has since gone out if business is D.O.T.S. I never bought from them when they were open, but I did acquire sets later at yard sales, etc. If I rcall correctly, DOTS was bought out by Creative Memories...not much help, but digging through nearly 2 decades of stamping memories takes time!!!

Not Ahni & Zoe. This was before my daughter was born in 2003.

The colors were really bright, the dsp was glossy, and I think it came in kits.

Could it have been Ippity Stamps? Unity Stamps did an off shoot and made a direct sales company several years ago called Ippity Stamps. It was the same as SU - except you had to buy in multiples to stash on hand to sell. (Which failed shortly after being created.... they had cute products though!)

No, it was scrapbooking, not stamping. I wasn't in to stamping then -- it was before I was introduced to Stampin' Up.

I was thinking of Memory Works too. Simple Stories started out as a direct sales company. I think D.O.T.S. became Close to My Heart.

I am wondering as well. The following are names I found searching for an answer.


The Angel Company (mainly stamping but had scrapbooking supplies also)
Once Upon a Family
My Creative Life
I remember when ....


The Angel Company is the only one I purchased from in Florida around 2003.
Hopefully one of these will help!

DOTS was the original name of Close to My Heart. The name changed in June 2000.

Thanks for the reminder! I always get CTMH and Creative Memories jumbled. I had an acquaintance who was a demo for both my them (not at same time), and I bought some things from her whenever she came by with a catalog or sample. 😁

None of these sound right. Thanks for all of your help. I think I'm going to have deep down into the scary boxes of really old scrapbooking supplies. I will try to do that over the weekend and report back.

You don't happen to have your tax returns from back then, do you? If were selling and made some income, might you have gotten a W2 or other statement that would be filed away?

That is a really good idea, but no.

And I also looked through my Saved Mail back to 1998 and didn't find anything.

The only one I can think of is Autumn Leaves, they sold a few of their own products plus lines from several different scrapbook companies. I wish I had saved from of my scrapbook magazines from that time, I could help more with this search.

I have no idea but love a challenge. I'm hoping the answer is one of the companies listed in the article linked below:

Just an idea! If you still have any product from the company you might try the Googles app. If it recognizes it, it will give you the name in the description. It is a long shot but maybe...........

I found it!!! I went back through all of the messages of an old Yahoo group I was part of -- It was called Scrap in a Snap!!

Scrap in a Snap is out of business... - WAHM.com Boards


Thank you all for pushing me to dig harder!
