More Info > About Us
About UsI am a native Washingtonian. Born on the dry-side of the state but raised on the wet-side. I called the Greater Pugetopolis my home for over 60 years. I am married to my “best friend” and we love to travel.
In October of 2011, we made a huge move to Wickenburg, Arizona. My shop is set up and I am just over an hour away from Bazzill. I still have my customers in Washington and have added a couple of California and Oregon stores. Hoping soon to be in Arizona. Loving the warm weather and sunshine.
Northwest Memories was started by happenstance. We love to travel but I was frustrated by the lack of embellishments for the places we visited, especially “acid-free” items. I found some laser cuts at the Expo in Portland, Oregon and brought some home. I asked Deanna, the owner of my local scrapbook store, if she could look into getting some of these. Her suggestion was “Maybe you should look into making these.” That was the beginning of Northwest Memories.
Our laser cuts are primarily of the Pacific Northwest but quickly are adding California and Southwest destinations and events. A new line is the retro/vintage travel trailers that are so popular. We continuously add new destinations and event so if you don't see what you want, just let us know and we will try to design it for you. We do not charge an additional fee for designing custom work.
We have created designs that use only acid free and lignin free paper. We have over 400 colors of cardstock and specialty papers. Most of our cardstock is by Bazzill. Most of the designs are assembled for your convenience and it will be noted if NOT assembled in the description.
