Road Trip


Hello friends!
I have always dreamed of visiting the scrapbook store chain called, Archivers. Unfortunately we don't have one in our city,
 but there is one 3 hours away in Kansas City, MO.
  Yep, we are definitely two crazy crafters! We headed out last Saturday and picked up lots of fun and inspiring new supplies!


I had no idea what to expect, but I was thrilled with their variety of new paper lines and some old favorites!


One of the new lines I picked up was this one called, This and That by Echo Park.
A very sweet paper line that comes in a girl and boy version with vintage patterns.
The girl version was filled with our favorite color combonation of red and pink!!


I also picked up a couple fun 8x8 paper pads. The first one is a new Graphic 45 line! Very different and unique! I also picked up this travel themed line by October Afternoon.
I can't wait to make mini albums with these pretty lines!


My biggest thrill was spotting this Graphic 45 line called, Little Darlings.
A beautiful antique baby line which is so dreamy I am definitely putting it in my top 5 favorite paper lines ever! Now the hard part is cutting into it!!!!


We look forward to sharing with you
 what we create with our fun new goodies!

Have you ever been to Archivers?

Have a lovely day, Lindsey

What a fun day that must have been! Road trips are great, and then to end up at a store like that would be perfect.

Since all of our local scrapbook stores have closed, there is only Archiver's (one hour away) and the chains. It is fun to go to an actual store and see all those goodies, isn't it?

I was at my local Archiver's on Monday making cards with a girlfriend! They have a workroom that you can use for free! Of course I did buy a few things! LOL.
It's a great shop.
Have FUN with all your new papers!
Warmly,

I get sensory overload at Archivers...I cannot take it all in. There is something wonderful around every turn of the aisle. They have all the October Afternoon lines that I love.
