About Us


The vision for Windy City Scrapbooking got its start during the summer of 2002.  After taking classes with the Women's Business Development Center in Chicago, space was found in December of 2003, and Christina opened the WCS storefront on Clybourn on March 25th, 2004.

After just about 7 years of a wonderful retail experience -- wonderful customer, awesome staff, and an industry full of incredibly talented scrapbookers who would often visit the store, and having a beautiful baby girl, Christina closed the retail space to better concentrate on raising that lovely little girl. However, her passion for scrapbooking and the people of Chicago (and the world!) could not end there, so the webstore has remained open to help fill that need.

Our webstore is starting out small, but we are adding product just about everyday -- we have 1000's of skus in stock and just not enough hours in the day to get them all online!  We can also order just about anything that is currently available in the scrapbooking and papercrafting world, so if there is something you want or need, please don't hesitate to email or call!  We will do our best to track it down for you quickly!

Have a wonderful day & don't let your memories blow away!
