A sad Day. Scenic Route is closing.

For those of you Scenic Route fans, I'd like to post a note from Sarah saying goodbye.....

"A Bittersweet Farewell ....

With a landslide of conflicting emotions we have decided to close the doors at Scenic Route. Our last 6 years doing business in the scrapbook industry have been both fun and challenging. Through the years I have learned so much, I know that we can do anything we set our hearts on with a little creativity and a lot of hard work. With that, I am looking forward my next creative adventure. Thanks to you, Scenic Route had growth year after year culminating in our best month ever in August 2008. Unfortunately, September 2008 brought economic hardships to our company, the scrapbook industry, and this nation. Thank you so much to all of you who have taken this journey with us and supported our efforts to bring fun and innovative products to the scrapbook industry.


Starting today you will find all of the products on the web store at a discount from 10-80 percent off. These prices will continue to decrement over time, but be aware, once an item is gone, it won't be back. We will also have a booth at two Scrapbook Expos next month. We will have all of our great liquidations deals there too! Come visit the Scenic Route Store today and start saving now.
