When scrapbooking hit the nation in the ’90s, no one could possibly have known how many closet craftspeople there actually were. From the days of decorating popsicle sticks with glitter and glue to decorating store-bought frames to showcase your favorite photos, now folks make an art of displaying their own pages in frames or bound books. Who would have thought it! But with that comes the expense of materials, cutters, cropping, embellishing and housing those memories. Here are some of the best spots in the Las Vegas area to find all your necessities (and more).
Scrapbook Kyandyland 
2208 So Nellis, Suite 2A
LasVegas, NV 89104
(702) 894-9300

In the beginning, Kyandy created designer scrapbook pages for clients from all over the world. Then, she started teaching others to do the same, first at local shops and then in the second bedroom of her home. All the while, she offered the newest and best products available, as well as ensuring the old favorites were also represented. Her business — physical and online — thrived and now she has a shop of her own where you can find a travel section packed with Las Vegas memorabilia, the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Red Rock as well as other decorations celebrating everyone’s “scrapable” moments. Her passion has grown into an enterprise, but she still enjoys nothing more than helping others design their own special pages.

Scrappy-Do (LLC)
1590 W Horizon Ridge Parkway, Suite 150
Henderson, NV 89012
(702) 407-5589

Scrappy-Do is the home of do-it-yourself scrapbook “layout kits,” but there are also basic supplies and necessities. Their huge variety of pages, patterns, cropping supplies, decorating odds’n’ends and more is impressive. They also carry home decor items and tee shirts but the biggest draw may well be their excellent classroom packed with Cricut, AccuCut, Silhouette Cameo and tables where you can either bring a group or work alone on your own projects (when classes aren’t being offered). The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the staff is more than eager to help you in any way they can.

The Crafting Place
3560 E. Russell Rd
Las Vegas, NV 89120
(702) 485-3799

This great group of ladies mans a store filled with scrapbooking and crafting supplies. With the classes they offer, the selection of paper and materials they have in stock and rubber stamp/embossing and arts & crafts stuff just waiting for you to purchase, why would you go anywhere else? You can make themed tags, spend a day cropping or join them in a celebration of mixed media. They have all the supplies you need, all the help you could possibly want and sometimes they even offer snacks!

ARC Crafts
6320 S. Sandhill Road, Suite 2.
Las Vegas, NV 89120
(702) 851-7277

Sometimes regular paper won’t do, especially if you want to mount a scrapbook page or display or even showcase a special craft on the wall. That’s where ARC Crafts comes into play. They offer “real wood specialty paper for real craft projects.” The choice is white birch or cherry wood with a paper or adhesive backing, and the sheets come in a variety of sizes. Just imagine your latest project on a beautiful wood background that’s flexible enough to mount easily, yet sturdy enough to rival the thickest paper. They now also carry ARC Design Labels that would be perfect for your scrapbooking page.
