About our Blog

We began writing this blog as a team effort in January 2010, and our hope is to share our thoughts about, and passion for all things “scrapbooking”.  We want to tell the stories behind the photos and pages (yes, most of the photos you see in our stores feature the friends and families of our employees!) and share why we do what we do.

We plan to tell you about all the ideas we have, the things we’ve tried (some successes, some not so much!), the projects we’ve made, the stories behind our pages and projects, and the things we’ve learned along the way.  We’ll also tell you about the newest hottest products that we get to try long before they make it to our shelves, and we’ll share some tips, tricks, and inspiration to help you make the most of this fun and truly rewarding hobby – or for some of us, addiction!  Enjoy!

    I purchased a Silouette machine from you at such a great price that I got really excited about getting it. The problem is I believe I need a lot of help getting the most out of its capabilities. Does the store on Schoenherr give classes with this machine? Thanks!

      Hi Kitty! Unfortunately they do not have a class specifically on the Silhouette machine. However, stop by your local Archiver’s and they’ll be more than happy to help you out!

    I (in FL with no Archiver’s) want to buy a gift card for my daughter(in MI with Archier’s) for her birthday coming up but I don’t see anyway to do that on line. Can anyone help?

    1. Meg’s avatar

      Hi Lani! Unfortunately, gift cards cannot be purchased online at this time. Gift cards are only available for purchase and use in our Archiver’s stores. However, you can purchase a gift card over the phone from one of our stores (http://www.archiversonline.com/stores). They can then ship it to you or your daughter. Shipping charges will apply.

    I spend all together too much time watching UTUBE videos on mini albums etc. this started from your link back when the smash books came out and I think there are some really cute ideas i wouyl like to see Arcdhivers have classes about.. You could use the classes to focus on particular products which would make that item easier to make and there fore, maybe the makers of the products would help subsidise the classes? A circle cutter, for one album design I am thinking about in particular. Mayby someone could surf UTUBE and see what I mean. When I asked at my local store how they came up eith the ideas for the classes, I was told to post a blog here. So there it is.;-D

    I am blessed to live fairly close to the Castleton Archiver’s in Indiana. Your stores are always stocked with the latest and greatest products for scrapbooking and paper crafting. My husband and I have been traveling lately and I am always on the lookout for Archiver’s where ever we are. Love, love, love Archivers! Thank you for being close by. My husband says that I am addicted to Archivers.

    -Why in the world is the Archiver’s store closing in Aurora, CO? Westminster and Highlands Ranch are way too far. I am outraged! Can someone please explain this to me from corporate? I suppose I am forced to go to Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or JoAnne’s. I have been a dedicated customer since this location opened and am not looking forward to saying goodbye :( The online store just won’t fix my need to feel the paper and see my pages come together.

    Sincerely,

    Disappointed and Outraged!

    I received notice today that you are closing the Aurora, Colorado store. This is an amazing store with dedicated employees and I am very sad that you are closing it. Your announcement made it sound like it was wonderful, but you must realize that there is no way you can put a ‘spin’ on this and expect your loyal customers to like it. There are two other Archiver stores in the Denver area but they are miles away. I don’t know what made you decide to close this store but this was not a good decision by your coporate office. What this store needed was a bigger location. I do hope you reconsider closing this store.

    Hi Meg and Joan,

    It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the closing of our Aurora, CO location on September 30. We are sad about this location closing – lots of great memories were made here – but we just couldn’t make things work with the terms of the center we were located in. We’re hopeful that many of our employees from Aurora will join the staff at one of our other Denver locations in Westminster and Highlands Ranch (both about 20-30 minutes away from Aurora) and hope that our customers will find a new creative home there too.

    I’m looking for the sample work from Stampendous Cling Wisemen from last Christmas. You made a Christmas card using 3 to 4 different embossing powder. If there is any direction for this can you please post or send me a email. Thanks.

    I’m excited about the new Revolution….I have the old revolution and I still think it is the best machine out there. Of course, the downfall-the width of it. It’s about time they update the Revolution!!! Way to go Lifestyle!! And the big attraction(no pun intended) -the magnetic cutting plate! I use to think that wasn’t a big deal but it is when you are trying to cut out a stamped image from Hero Arts stamp and cut. It is a HUGE deal!!! So, if you are thinking about buying the Revolution; don’t forget Archivers deal on the cutting plate! It is a must have.

      I love to dry emboss, and the puffy 3-D effect it gives all my projects! It is so time consuming doing it by hand, and this machine would cut that time in half, so I could do more of the projects I love! I would really love to win this!

    I love to use die-cuts for cards and layouts. This machine would make the process quicker and easier than cutting by hand.

    I would love to have the new Revolution. I make cards 3-4 times a week and the new magnetic plate would help so much in cutting out the different
    dies. I am in a local group that makes cards for Operation Write Home (cards for all our troops) and really enjoy doing so. Anything that helps them is a pleasure!

    Because I do not have much in the way of equipment, I would really be excited to win the Life Style Crafts giveaway you offer. Trying out new tools is the best part of creating projects. It appears that the Evolution will fill a niche in my creative life to make it easier – and more fun.

    How can this be!?! ALL ARCHIVERS CLOSING on FEBRUARY 15, 2014!!!! So are there really that many people using only digital, making it difficult to sell product!?! Well there are thousands that don’t like digital and prefer to cut, paste, and create with physical items. This is sadly bad business decisions by corporate throughtout these past few years that is punishing dedicated customers. Thank you to all the Archiver’s Associates who have been there to help us non-digital customers and have become our family away from home. We will miss you!!! :-(

    In your Woodbury store, I saw what appeared to be a wooden piece with NOEL stenciled on it and then a gold glaze type finish. How was this made?

    Thank you
