Today’s post is a simple share of an afternoon hang out with my sister’s & the hunt for Graphic 45’s Nature Sketchbook 12″x12″ Paper Collection and a Mixed Media Art Journal. It started out with getting to see my furry nephew who is still a pup but doesn’t look like one, he sure is a sweetie pie ;O)
After cuddles we were off to check out a couple scrapbook stores I hadn’t been to since moving to the area. The first stop was a lovely little store called Paper Pastimes where we met the store owner Carol who showed us a brand new order of Decoupage Sheets by Stamperia International that had just arrived (she hadn’t even gotten to putting on the price stickers before we and some other customers began picking through them to buy lol!
I also found a couple of sheets remaining from the Graphic 45 St. Nicholas set that I hadn’t bought yet:
and of the Nature Sketchbook collection, the books had sold out in less than 24 hours :O( but Carol was nice enough to let me call when she gets more in to put aside for me. I fell in love with the “Nature Sketchbook Collection” as soon as I seen it online, I honestly think that it’s my favorite paper set I have ever seen! But everywhere I look it’s sold out so I guess I’m not the only person in love with this set lol!!
Then it was on to the Best Creation Glitter Cardstock that I want for die-cutting and bows:
After looking through the papers I turned and staring back at me were Eyelet Outlet embellishments! As a design team member for the company it was very cool to see their products in a store :O)
After that it was onto my youngest sister’s coffee shop for a catch up chat and something to drink. Oh the choices………
Isn’t it amazing how a “little sisterly chat” can turn into 4 hours lol!!!
So then on to the second scrapbook store that I’ve never been to in search of the perfect mixed media art journal………and voila!!! The Scrap Yard provided:
I have never art journaled before but that’s part of the fun with art, trying new things :O)
Well that was my adventure on the hunt for some Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook Collection papers and an Art Journal. I’ll be back soon with another project.
Have a safe and creative week Everyone :O)
