Ella Bonella began in 2018 on Facebook as "First Dibs" & grew from there. We are a Midlands based partnership with decades of experience in both business & the scrapbooking industry. We saw a need for a dedicated scrapbooking store amongst the piles of online crafting sites - so we set out to create one that looked clean, was uncluttered & user-friendly.
We specialise in non-subscription scrapbooking kits, meaning you can buy what you want, when you want, without being locked into a monthly subscription. We've a comprehensive selection of kits ranging from £5 to £25. We also stock D ring scrapbooking albums in various sizes, at competitive prices with almost constant availability. Our customer service & support is second to none & we get your parcels out FAST - 6 days a week!
We've been scrapbooking so long that we're experts on products & tools & stand behind everything we sell. We buy from specialist scrapbooking brands, not generic mass producers with products that aren't fit for purpose. We source interesting & unusual products so we can bring our own unique flavour to the market. We show you creative ways to use your supplies, with regular inspiration on all of our social media channels.
We appreciate your support & do everything we can to give you a wonderful experience. We are fully involved with & committed to our business & we're always just a phone call or email away. We respond quickly to your queries, have a very active Facebook Group as well as a lively Instagram account & Facebook Page plus regular online crops & real life events too!
If you'd like to see our store at your scrapbooking event we may be able to be attend. Just pop us an email with some details & we'll get back to you. We travel all around the UK & we're also available to teach classes & workshops. We have bucket loads of experience & our approach is fun, interactive, technique based & full of creativity.
We think life's too short to worry about what scrapbooking collection you're using or if you own all the latest gadgets. It IS possible to make GREAT layouts that don't take hours & to have a scrapbooking space that doesn't take up an entire room! We're proponents for workable scrapbooking that isn't a massive financial drain & doesn't invade every corner of your home. Scrapbooking can have a place in your life without being your life.
We're here to show you that scrapbooking can be fun as well as rewarding & that being a scrapbooker doesn't mean you have to spend more time recording memories than you do making them. Your scrapbooks are for yourself, your family & friends, not on exhibition at The Louvre - we are avid proponents of organised scrapbooking which means keeping sight of your end goals & taking steps daily to achieve them.

What is Scrapbooking? Scrapbooking is the art of recording memories, by combining photos, words & complimentary supplies, in books & albums designed to be passed down through the generations, not only for the purpose of historical documentation, but also as a means of creative expression and as a therapeutic & tactile form of art & self expression - Ella Bonella
