Tammy Merrill, a long time Hooper resident, has always loved crafting, cutting paper, sewing, and playing with craft supplies. She began scrapbooking many years ago, and after joining several scrapbook swap groups, she realized her fellow scrapbookers couldn’t find the supplies they needed. She soon connected herself with wholesale companies and saw that they were mostly based in Utah. She went to work forming solid relationships with these wholesalers, and a dream was born.
In July 2014, she decided to open her own company, making her own paper designs, scrapbook supplies, and offering scrapbook classes. To her, scrapbooking is about bringing friends together and preserving memories that are made from scratch. She focuses on creating her own paper designs, exclusively designed by Country Craft creations, that are not available anywhere else. She now also has designers from around the country that create designs exclusively for the company, which you can only purchase at the store or on the website. She takes pride in creating heirlooms to pass down from generation to generation. Her classes bring people together to spend quality time with each other. She teaches people how to get the pictures off their phones and create albums to feature them in.
On September 19th, one of her longtime dreams will become a brick and mortar reality. The first Country Craft Creations store will be opened to the public at 3248 W. 4600 S. #1 in West Haven. The store will offer a huge selection of basic scrapbooking supplies and wood craft projects for home displays and seasonal decorations from Foundations Decor. Northern Utah hasn’t had a scrapbook store for a long time. Tammy and her crew are bringing scrapbooking back to Northern Utah. They take pride in the fact that this will be the only one. The store will also be continuously bustling with scrapbooking and craft classes of all kinds.
Please join us for the Grand Opening event on Monday, September 19th.
The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled with the Ogden Weber Chamber of Commerce and local dignitaries and community leaders at 4 p.m. The first 30 attendees will receive an exclusive wooden sign from Foundations Decor, and there will be many other prizes and giveaways while supplies last. Country Craft creative designers from New York and California will be there for a ‘Meet the Designers’ meet and greet along with the company mascot, Wilbur the Beagle, who appears in the logo and all of the YouTube tutorials.
