My Journey

When I was offered the opportunity to open KatScrap Studio, as I was closing the door on Karen's Hallmark, I knew immediately that I had to step through the open door and give it a shot.  I wasn't completely sure why the universe had presented me this gift, but as I designed and opened the store, I discovered that it really was not about me, but something far greater.  It was the need for the community to come together to be creative.  I would like to express my sincere gratitude to those who have stepped forward with me to help my business grow.  My design team members (Chelsea, Faby, Heather & Rosann) worked tirelessly in an effort to build fun, creative classes and other programs, like theATC and Reading Club, as well as filled the store with creative and inspirational samples.

My life journey has taken me away from the store (75+ miles to be exact) with a move up to Running Springs.  As with most opportunities in life, it was not planned, but was essential.  With this move, I can no longer continue to run KatScrap Studio store front as it exists now.  I had hoped that I could by changing the hours and increasing the use of my wonderful staff (Chelsea &Faby), but after a month of trying this, I realize it is just not possible on a number of fronts.

I really do not look at this as an end, but as a new beginning.  I know you'll be hearing from KatScrap Studio before too long - the plans are already in the works.
So, starting WEDNESDAY, Nov. 3rd, I will be selling ALL the merchandise in the store for 50% OFF.  The fixtures will also be for priced for sale ( not 50% OFF their marked price - but I'm willing to bargain!) Doors open at 11:00 am! So come on in and get GREAT deals!  This is not going to be a long, drawn out closure - if you want something, come in and get it before it's gone. 

We do have several events scheduled that we do hope you will attend before we close the doors on Sunday, Nov. 14th.  

Thank you for all of your continued support!
