There is a connection between scrapbooking and Prince Edward Island. The Confederation Centre has a display of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Scrapbooks. Yes, she was a scrapbooker who collected various newspaper articles that helped showcase Canadian Heritage and culture the way she saw it. You can still find “Imagine Anne” in bookstores. The commemorative book was published for the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables.
So where can you get scrapbooking supplies in PEI? While not as popular as it once was, you can still find some scrapbooking supplies at dollar stores and other discount shops like Buy Rite. According to cropacrosscanada.com, there are three major scrapbooking stores on Prince Edward Island:
One Stop Crop is located in Kensington. They have a Facebook page. Their picture album shows off the many nice page layouts they have put together. They have scrapbooking supplies and they hold classes.
The ScrapBook Studio is in Charlottetown. They have tools and paper products. They also hold classes.
The Island Made Scrapbooking Gift Shop is located in Winsloe. They have PEI borders, picture buttons, tags and several other items with a PEI or Nautical theme. While they don’t seem to have classes, they have a studio where you can scrapbook your vacation photos – good idea for a rainy day. They also have a half day experience that includes garden tour, tea and scones, and a scrapbooking “make and take.”
Tomorrow we’ll talk about tea.
