As one Crop Girls customer pointed out on our most recent visit, scrapbooking is the one crafty hobby that people seem to stick to — as evidenced by the fact the store is always packed. We'll travel clear across the Valley to go to Crop Girls, which has the best selection of vintage paper and stickers in town, and to pick the brains of partners Crista, Donna, Christina, and Pamela, who are always in the know about the latest scrapbooking convention.

Outside, the shop's an ugly beige mess; inside, it's a haven of pretty lime-green walls, crafting stations, and rows and rows of paper, stamps, stickers, and scrapbooking kits neatly organized and labeled. We've recently scored clear stamps for making wedding invitations, baby-themed paper in star shapes, Distress Ink, and our favorite find — Jen Wilson's "The Ride" paper, which has cool scalloped edges in vintage-y orange and a pattern of old station wagons to match. The Crop Girls offer classes several times a week, so you'll know how to use those supplies, and there's also a unique selection of Aussie scrapbooking mags that Crista — whose accent indicates she's a native — swears by for ideas.

I am totally flabbergasted that Crop Girls got best scrapbook store. I checked out the store and was very dissappointed, way too much vintage looking stuff for my tastes. I asked them to remove me from their e-mails.

Scrapbooks, etc. on University Dr. in Mesa is the best scrapbook store I have ever been to. I go way out of my way to drive there since I live in west Phoenix, but I absolutely love the store and the staff and I consider it well worth the drive. They have the cutest scrapbook page examples displayed all around the store. I rave to all of my friends about Scrapbooks, etc.

I can't believe that Crop Girls was listed as the Best Scrapbook Store in your magazine. When I went there, prepared to be "Wowed", all I found was one of the sisters complaining about how one of them had left taking all of their paper lines with them. Everything I was looking for...they didn't carry.I was looking for two of my favorite lines of paper and was told that they "didn't like them" (7 Gypsies being one of them). That immediately turned me off because who they buying for, themselves or their customers? Bad choice, in my estimation, of course!
