Tracey's Purple Elephant Scrap Booking Shop specializes in unique, quality paper that is perfect for scrap booking, creating cards, and other paper craft ideas and projects. Our store was created based off of the need in the Northeast Ohio area for paper crafting which today is known as scrap booking.
In 2007, we started as a small brick-and-mortar store in Northeast Ohio. During that time, we hosted several events in our store that benefited our customers and community. Some of the events included Scrap Pink for breast cancer awareness during the month of October; Scrap-A-Thons where local scrappers would come to our store and create beautiful scrapbook albums and 2 - page layouts during a 24 hour period. During National Card Month, we would host weekend events where our customers would receive hourly specials. We also held regular classes and parties centered around scrap booking. Our goal is to meet the needs of all of our customers.
The owner has a passion for sharing great memories of her loved ones through the hobby of scrap booking. She absolutely adores elephants and the color purple and the strength that they signify. As the family photographer, she found scrap booking rewarding. She loved putting her memories of family events and vacations together in one place. She enjoyed looking back through the pictures she took and designing the perfect layout to showcase those precious memories. Now, she is bringing her knowledge and experience to an online store. She decided to create a location where others can share the same passion. While creating the foundation to open something so passionate, she decided to name the store after her deceased sister Tracey who was killed in a car accident. Tracey LOVED to pose for pictures. She would smile and pose immediately as soon as she would see a camera pointing in her direction. She had the perfect smile. She also showed tons of emotion when being photographed. One minute she would be smiling for the camera, then before you knew it, she would be shedding several tears. See, photos capture many, many memories, and we are happy to be able to help others captivate those special memories.
