Captured Moments was, for many years, the only brick and mortar scrapbooking supply and idea center in New York’s Capital District. The store, located in Rotterdam, NY was jam packed with welcomed inspiration. The moment you walked into Captured Moments, you could see that this wasn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill, retail supply store. The ambiance and decor equaled that of your finest boutique or spa, exuding comfort, friendliness and most of all, creative inspiration. Complimentary tea and coffee were always fresh and available, free open-crop welcomed scrappers, new and seasoned, while weekly “Make & Takes” encouraged new ideas and hands-on “how-tos”. Everywhere you looked in the shop, you saw beautiful sample page layouts, scrapbook album samples, other inspirational paper craft projects as well as organized and easy to find products for purchase. On Thursday, March 21st, 2013, Captured Moments, the physical location, closed it's doors. It was a hard decision and a sad occasion for many wonderul scrapbookers, but Captured Moments continues to inspire, create and encourage scrapbooking and paper crafting without our beautiful store. This website, Blog, Scrapbook Kit club and it's monthly Scrapbook Events keep Captured Moments alive and well in the community and world wide.
Captured Moments is owned and operated by Tiffany Reutter and Tara Burtt, sisters, who always dreamed of having a business together. Wanting to instill a drive for success, dedication and pride in their daughters, they embarked on this journey and hope that their success and vision help to direct the decisions their children make in their own lives. With the support of family and friends, a willingness to “dive into the deep end” and a little start up financing, Tiffany and Tara got things rolling. The doors opened in September 2004 and since then, they have never looked back. Enjoying every minute of running this business, the sisters have quickly established themselves as experts in the craft, helping new scrappers to get started, while inspiring others to better their skills and continuously introducing new techniques and designs.
Captured Moments is a full service scrapbooking resource. Aside from stocking the newest and most innovative scrapbooking supplies (both on-line and at our local scrapbook events), Captured Moments offers classes, fun paper craft clubs, a monthly scrapbook kit club, and monthly Crop events. Captured Moments also offers custom album services. Captured Moments can be found “on the road” as a vendor for popular weekend scrapbook retreats in both Latham and Saratoga Springs, NY.
With encouragement from customers to take the popular Kit Terrific Klub, their monthly scrapbooking kit club, to the internet and offer it world-wide, the Captured Moments Online Store was born. More products continue to be added online as new ideas and projects are created. Many of the best class projects are developed into complete project kits and are now offered on-line as well. The weekly issued ready-made page kits are also available as well as specialty services, such as custom album design or photo collage design.
