As I become more interested in scrap booking, and using photographs in them, I am constantly on the lookout for more ideas, products, and projects. I had thought I had discovered just about every online site dedicated to the art of photography and scrapbooks, including sites that were a combination of supplies for both. So imagine my surprise when I was right here at this site, and I realized there was a link on the left hand side of the page that I did not recognize called Exposures. I first thought, from its name, that it was going to be a site for film developing. It was not. What it is, is a site that has a huge array of top quality journals, scrapbooks, scrapbook kits, scrapbook supplies such as glues and adhesives, jewelry, frames, storage items, photo albums, specialty cards, and much, much more.

If you are looking for anti corrosion sleeves to store your CD's that contain your treasured photos, then head directly to this site, as they have them, for $7.95 for a set of ten. Archival mist, which I saw on a television show about scrap booking several months ago, but have not been able to find anywhere, is available for $39.00. With this spray, you will never have to worry about newspaper clippings or other ephemera wasting away once you spend countless hours assembling it into your scrapbook layouts. Metal photo corners, mini friend brag books, scrapbook totes, a basic scrapbook tool set, paper sets, embellishment kits, fancy albums, leather albums, fun albums, and more. If you have been searching for it, chances are if it has something to do with quality scrapbook supplies, you will find it at this store.

If storage is an issue you struggle with as a scrapbook enthusiast, be sure to check out their Storage and Frames/Display section. Under storage, you will find many ideas for storing both your supplies and all the books and magazines that seem to in hand with scrap booking. Under Frames/Display section though, they have a subheading of furniture. There, I found storage towers in various sizes, perfect for assembling all the shoebox-sized containers so popular among photo and scrapbook enthusiasts. They also have a scrapbook station desk, hutch, and cart, available in either black or off white; it is the perfect unit to use to gain control of all your scrapbook clutter, with a place for everything, and everything in place once you store it an all their specific cubbyholes and spaces.

If not all of this were enough, Exposures also has numerous gift ideas including jewelry, customized photo items such as monogrammed photo key rings, glass paperweights, custom photo tin ornaments, silk photo handbags, photo totes, even Sweet Celebration Photo Cookies. That is right, you can actually order cookies with your favorite photographs emblazoned right on the cookies. Two dozen of a single shape for $75.00, this may seem high priced, but for a special occasion such as a reunion with a loved one, or a milestone birthday, these are sure to be a huge hit!

If you have been searching for one more photo or scrapbook store that just might carry the one thing you cannot find anywhere else, be sure to check out Exposures, from the link available right here at
