Lasting Memories is the one store you must visit when coming to Seattle. It is about 20 minutes north of Seattle itself, in Lynnwood. It is right off the freeway, across from Alderwood Mall, so it is very easy to find.
Lasting Memories carries not only the latest and greatest, but a lot of it!! Their store is divided up into theme such as baby, wedding, cowboys etc. So it really is easy to find coordinating papers and embellishments for a particular set of photos you are working with. They also have an enormous area of patterned paper by color. They stock Bazzill cardstock. A huge diecut area is available for use for a small fee or free with purchase of paper there.
Check out their monthly schedule for classes and crops. Their website has coupons and internet specials listed each Tuesday.
The staff is the only drawback to this store. Although there are a couple of great employees, most are not overly helpful or friendly.
