Felicia's Scrapbooks in Southwest Austin is a very cool store

Felicias Scrapbooks - Gail TasseyFelicia's Scrapbooks in Southwest Austin is a very cool store, and not just because it has great air conditioning in our record breaking heat wave here in Texas   this year.Felicia's Scrapbook store has been around awhile.  I have watched it grow and expand until I thought it was going to burst out of the walls.  

Felicia's Scrapbooks Southwest Austin is in the HEB Shopping Center at the Y in Oak Hill.  Now, all you Austinites know that the "Y" means where Hwy 71 and Hwy 290 W. divide.. so go toward the HWY 71 at the Y and the Shopping Center is on your right. 

A couple of years back I was introduced to handmade card making, my daughter is a real scrapbooker, not me, I like simpler and quick.  :)   Anyway, I stumbled across Felicia's Scrapbooks and found a wonderland of supplies and hard to find items.Felicia's has many items the large chain stores do not carry. Unique stamps some just made here in Texas depicting Texas traditions like bluebonnets and the Lone Star and HOWDY YA'LL.   Now that you can not buy at a big chain store!handmade cards by Felicia- Gail Tassey

Felicia is happy to order something for you if it is not on the shelves.  There are classes on scrapbooking and cardmaking regularly.  A few times a year there are "sidewalk garage sales".  I love those, who doesn't love a good sale.  Felicia's Scrapbook Store gets an A+ from me.

When talking to Felicia a while back (she is out on maternity leave right now) I found she was from California, the San Diego area, and had a scrapbooking store there... So Felicia has been at this a long time and knows her way around  retail store and the whole scrapbooking world.

It'sgreat to have a neighborhood specialist to take my unfinished projects to for ideas, suggestions and otherwise great input.  Stop by and check out the large supplies for scrapbooking or card making,  I know you will find the store delightful.   (It can be busy at garage sale times and crowded but worth the wait).fully stocked Felicias store- gail tassey

Check the Felicia's Scrapbooks website for store hours for and information.

Felicia writes a great blog about scrapbooking too.
