Scrappin with Mommy & Me is wonderful store to explore your options. There are so many papers and embellishments to choose from so your options are endless. There is also a die cutting room with well over 200 die cuts to choose from and 5 or more different alphabets. These come in handy especially for school projects. I enjoy leisurely walking through the store. The staff is so willing to help you find just what you need to make your project look like at masterpiece. They have good prices, at least 10% off retail, and you can also earn a higher discount up to 10% more. This is a great incentive. I also enjoy the selection of classes they have to offer from quilling and paper piecing to altering and mini albums. They also offer classes by Anna Griffin which are adorable. There are almost always positives and negatives to stores especially chains such as Michaels and JoAnns, but you really cannot beat the homely atmosphere that Scrappin' with Mommy & Me provides.
