This has been such a fun, and special, day at Scrapbook Generation! We have the privilege and the pleasure of being the "world premiere" for a new company called Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. Two things we love about the company (besides the beautiful products) are that the business is based right here in Springfield, and that Nikki is one of our longtime customers!
Getting to this point has been a two-year journey for Nikki and her husband. Nikki is an artist, and has created all the designs. For a new company, the product assortment is awesome, and I was glad to learn that virtually all of her products are manufactured here in the United States. There are double-sided papers, die-cut papers, cut-out sheets which include designs that can be used to make cards, 6x6 paper pads, corduroy brad sets, tiny "flags" to decorate, and sets of clear stamps that compliment the papers. Later, there will be chipboard albums in shapes that coordinate with the collections.
Right now, we have two of Nikki's six collections, Victoria's Street (the one we're holding parts of in the top photo), and My Sweet Cherry Pie. The other four collections are holiday or season oriented, and won't be available until after the company exhibits its products at CHA this summer.
It was interesting to take some time this morning to get to know part of the story behind Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, and to place the company's very first order. Getting the delivery just a few hours later may spoil us! We wish Nikki and her company the very best, and know that Springfield area scrapbookers, and the rest of the country as well, will love her products.
