Inside Scrapbooking Stores: Willow Tree Crafts

We haven’t had a new post in this feature for awhile.  So, just to refresh your memory, Inside Scrapbooking Stores is a series meant to focus on the brick and mortar scrapbooking supply stores.  We all love our LSS!  Many of them work really hard to make available the latest and best supplies, so let’s support them!

If you have a brick and mortar scrapbooking store to suggest, send us an email at scrapscene @gmail.com (no space).  For past featured stores, please click here.

Welcome to Willow Tree Crafts

This store is in Watford, Hertfordshire, UK.  Watford is about 30 minutes outside of London.  Specializing in scrapbooking supplies from a wide range of manufacturers, Willow Tree Crafts carries American Crafts, Maya Road, Creative Imaginations, Creative Cafe, Bazzill, Scenic Route, Basic Grey, Autumn Leaves, Creating Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Tsukineko, Making Memories, Chatterbox,  Rusty Pickle, KI Memories, and more.

Amy Heavey  tells us that they run monthly crops (on a Sundays in the new year), and other classes. "We also run a weekend retreat called Scrap Fever. Due to popular demand we have increased it to 2 events next year so we’re really excited about that."  Next year’s event will include teachers such as Donna Downey, Venessa Matthews, Layle Koncar and Mary Anne Walters. "We had Donna Downey over in the summer for some classes, and we’ve just started running digital classes."
 
Recently, Willow Tree Crafts ran a Photo Editing Tricks class. In this class they taught how to edit and tweak photos to highlight them. Techniques covered included such things as cropping and resizing photos, re colouring, adding vignettes etc. They will be running this class again in the new year.  You can sign up for the waiting list here.
 
Photos here show Donna Downey while she was at Willow Tree Crafts teaching as well as Shimelle Laine and Anne Parry.  Shimelle and Anne are both contributors to the UK’s Scrapbook Inspirations magazine.
