Cropping at Paper Tales

I found out on Instagram that a couple of my scrapbooking friends were going to Paper Tales to crop on Saturday 10/13, so I signed up too. Paper Tales has just expanded their store into the space next door, after the coffee shop closed. So I was excited to see their new space!

I met Gina and Kristen at the Amy Tan class at Paper Tales in May. Since then I’ve been to two crops at Ever After with Kristen, but this was the first time meeting up with Gina to crop.
I love our lovely scrapbooking mess! :)

I brought along my October Studio Calico kit, Roller Rink, along with the add-on kit Crack The Whip. I worked on a layout about my cat Noodle. I stamped and misted first on the background, then laid my papers and photo out.

I used the camera stamp on patterned paper, then put a blue enamel dot in the middle where the “lens” of the camera is.

I started a second layout, but I didn’t have time to finish it there.

Kelly came and joined us later. I met her through the crops at Ever After.

And a photo of all four of us. You can also see what this side of the store looks like now that they’ve taken over the coffee shop space.

I didn’t have the Thickers alphas that I wanted to use with me, so I finished the title for my layout when I came home.

I got the “Talk to the Paw” flair from Evalicious.  I just love it!

Closer look at the journaling.

As usual, I had a lot of fun scrapbooking with my new scrapbook friends. I did buy some new papers that I liked while I was there. Paper Tales has some of the latest and greatest there if you are looking for a LSS in San Diego. :)
