Welcome to Our New Sponsor and a Friendly Elements challenge!

Welcome to our First Elements challenge of the month, and a HUGE welcome to our August Elements Sponsor, Scrap A Doodle Doo!Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo is a boutique scrapbooking, card making and paper crafting store located in Ramsey, New Jersey and owned and operated by husband and wife team, Stephanie and Mark Mandato. We are fortunate to have a talented staff, as well as teachers and loyal customers who share their knowledge of the crafting world and enhance everyone’s experience at Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo. They help us to provide an atmosphere that inspires creativity, provides access to the latest and greatest product offerings and builds lasting friendships. The sign in our Crop Room appropriately reads: “Enter as strangers, leave as friends."

In addition to our online presence and retail location, we feel fortunate to have been invited to serve as one of the Preferred Vendors for Scrapper’s Dream Vacations (SDV) and have doing so for the past few years up and down the Eastern Coast. Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo also hosts all-day events and weekend themed retreats.

Thankfully, with all of the supplies available to scrapbookers today, you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the hobby. Like shoes and chocolate, scrapbooking and paper crafting is non-judgmental and provides instant gratification. We invite you to come explore the thousands of items from 175+ manufacturers, most of which you will not see at your "big box retailers."

If there is an item you cannot find or a custom kit that you would like us to help you create, please feel free to contact us or call (201) 818-7060 with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!
