I had to buy specialty paper for graduation party invitations so I went to Scrapbooks. They did not have a huge selection of grad paper but they had more than anyone else I've seen. I had to get 2 different kinds of paper because they were

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cool Scrapbook Stuff. I've been shopping at CSS since before I moved to California. I first found it when I was visiting from Arizona, and could hardly wait to get back to it. They have the best supply of paper I've seen anywhere. If I can't find what I'm looking for, Gena will either direct me, by name, to another shop, or order the product for me. I have always found the staff to be very friendly and always helpful. If you smile at them, ladies, they'll smile back!
I love the classes that CSS offers and the prices for those classes. The new crop room is great and near by if you forget needed supplies.
I have never gotten a "check" in the mail from any other craft store. It was such a pleasant surprise to receive the equivalent of "money" in the mail to use for future purchases as a result of the Frequent Buyer plan. How nice!
I always find something I need, want or can use at CSS. Thank you all.

Great products and good prices. I always find more than what I was looking for. Hard to do that these days since so many stores seem to be closing right now. This is my "go to" for everything I need. Don't miss it.

Haha! Some of these reviews MUST be personal suck ups to the owner cuz it all sounds like BS to me!! A couple of the girls that work there are nice but the owner is rude and unprofessional. The store is a MESS! There's so much crap that you cant find the cute stuff (when she has any)...that store just radiates negative energy. Its not a happy place to shop or crop. Both times i was there, i could over hear the owner talking crap about customers. Would NOT recommend this store to ANYONE!!! Unless you want to find really old junk from 5+ years ago, I would go ANYWHERE but Cool Scrapbook Stuff!!! Thumbs WAY down for me :(

I'm a pretty good natured, positive person. I LOVE to paper craft and shop at Cool Scrapbook Stuff all the time because they always have what I need/want. I've found that when you enter a building with a smile on your face, you get that happiness paid back. Just seeing all those beautiful papers, stamps, embellishments, cool tools, etc. makes me happy. When I'm in CSS, all my questions are answered by a scrapbooking professional, and with a friendly smile. Gena is a crack up -- she's always got an interesting story to tell and she knows her stuff! I doubt there's much she doesn't carry in her store, but if you want it, she can get it. Drop by Cool Scrapbook Stuff soon and visit with Gena and her knowledgeable staff. If you enter with a smile it'll be just like my granny always said, "you reap what you sow".

When I asked about a specific brand of paper the gal at the counter pointed to a rack and said "If we have it, it'll be over there." This is the kind NOT the kind of response I expected from a small business that should know its stock. When I went to check out, another woman rang up my purchases. She did not make eye contact, she did not smile. In fact, she acted like it was a chore to take my money. Then, to add insult to injury, after I left the store and went back to my crop (a retreat) I realized I was overcharged. The only reason I gave this place two stars was because their selection was good ... but not good enough to get me to shop there again.

This store is jam packed with scrap supplies and up to date with the latest trends. Although small, you even get a frequent shopper discount and a discount for not using a bag- I appreciate any discount.

I had to add my two cents since I have had such a great experience at CSS. It is rare these days to find a scrapbook store that can not only stay up with the trends but also keep the basics in stock. Cool Scrapbook Stuff is that store...and to top it off the prices are GREAT. I read through other comments here and don't share the same concerns.
I completely understand a scrap store asking to hold shopping bags (esp in a shopping plaza with Michaels and JoAnns)..but omg, do you KNOW how much stuff gets stolen in these stores? My opinion..keep my shopping bag so you can keep the prices low....
The owner of the store is a kind a generous woman. Not only did she take the lead on Operation Replenish she worked well with other stores to pull it off. I was impressed. She has always been helpful and honest with me. I appreciate that! I love that the employees are "required" to be scrapbookers. It makes them more helpful and of course enthusiastic.
As for those that think the store is cluttered...I think the fact that they have everything I am looking for...AND things I didn't even know I needed, is a GREAT thing."

I don't usually post reviews, but I had to speak up on behalf of Cool Scrapbook Stuff. I have no idea why anyone would EVER want to trash talk them! I have been going to CSS since they opened their first location (three stores back!), and they seem to get better every year. They have the best selection and the best prices in town, and trust me, I've checked!

The owner is one of the nicest, most giving people I know, who recently spent countless hours organizing a FREE event for fire victims all over Southern California, so they could get their scrapbooks going again. I volunteered at this event, and the number of people who admitted to her that if it hadn't been for the event, they probably would not have been able to restart their hobby was astounding. She is a beautiful person, and I hate to hear people say bad things about her, simply because she won't "break the rules."

I, for one, am a customer for life!

I'm shocked by the negative review for this store. I have been a customer of Cool Scrapbook Stuff for many years and I have always had a wonderful experience shopping there!
This store has an extensive inventory of scrapbooking/stamping supplies. I would rather shop in a store brimming full of the latest goods, with infinite choices of every tool, adhesive, paper, album, embellishment, pen, ink, etc.that's available, rather than a sparse store that's not even worth the effort to drive to.
I can purchase all of my scrapbooking and stamping needs in one stop. I've never walked out of the store without finding something I needed to purchase.
I often discover new techniques or supplies while I am there. And, I love the staff. They are friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to help you find what you're looking for.
I love that the store offers competitive prices with no mark up and that it provides a Frequent Buyer incentive program.
The fact that this store has been in business for many years right next to a Michael's and Joann's is evidence that they're doing something right. And, that something is providing a friendly atmosphere, with the largest selection of scrapbooking goods in the county!

This store is very dirty and cluttered. I have often times seen cats running around in the store and the restrooms were about as clean as one at a truck stop. The owner is rude and does not appreciate her customers. You'd think she would value her hardoworking employees and her customers who spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars in her store - but the opposite is true. Make the drive to Pink Pineapple or Everafters and forget about cool scapbook stuff.

I just did my first rating and I saw that Cool got a low rating back in March. I just have to TOTALLY disagree! The staff is SO friendly and helpful!!! I just don't even "agree" that the last statement was unfriendly at all!

I have asked for specific items before and stores have just "shared" that if it isn't there then they don't have it... I mean, this is a HUGE store and they carry a LOT of product! I don't know how they even keep track of it all!!!!

Ok - enough about that! The owner is AWESOME! and her employees are COMPLETELY FRIENDLY and helpful! And if you want an AMAZING selection of scrapbook supplies (or stamping or card making or WHATEVER!), THEY HAVE IT!!!! I am always shocked at their selection!

And they have awesome classes! WOW!

Plus, they are in a shopping center wtih Michael's and Jo-ann's so how can you go wrong??!!

LOVE THAT PLACE! TOTALLY ADDICTED!

While this store has a good selection and decent prices, the service is horrible! I think it's the owner ...didn't get her name, is very snooty. It's as if she thinks everyone is there to rip her off instead of give her their hard earned cash! Instead of welcoming you into her store she says, "I'LL HOLD YOUR BAG UP HERE WHILE YOU SHOP!" Talk about setting the mood! Even though I like her products and selection I would rather drive 20 miles out of my way to shop other scrap stores. They are nicer to you there and don't make you feel like a criminal!

Good Luck CSS you're gonna need it. I can't wait for another scrapstore to open up in Poway!

Cool Scrapbook Stuff has a really great and cute little scrapbook store. With so many discount stores adding scrapbooking selections to their inventory like, "Big Lots" and "Walmart," it's hard to match their prices, but the smaller branched scrapbooks certainly beat out the larger chains when comparing the size of their selection. With new products all the time, I find myself never bored of that store.

Cool Scrapbook Stuff is the place to visit if your local craft store doesnt have the scrapbook items that you are looking for. This store had all of the hit lines like the Disney line that scrapbook enthusiasts are looking for. The prices are a little bit moderate compared to what you would find at your local craft store, all though they cant compare with the prices of Walmart, you can find items that Walmart doesnt carry. The staff is knowledgeable, and can suggest the right product for all of your scrapbook needs.
