I get a lot of questions about where I get certain things from (especially my floral paper), so I decided to put this guide together for you. I’ve broken it up into sections for general paper basics, art supplies, textiles, and even my filming/editing equipment.
This page does contain affiliate links to A Cherry on Top, Arteza, Blick, Felicity Jane, and Scrapbook.com. I earn a small commission from them when you click through and shop from my links, which helps me create and share more crafty art with you all. I appreciate all the support. Thank you.
Generally for scrapbooking supplies, my go-to brands are Crate Paper, Felicity Jane, and Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I love their usage of bright pastel colors and their floral papers. All three of these brands tend to create very beautiful feminine collections that just reflect my own personal style well. So naturally, I gravitate towards them all of the time.
ACdigitals is my go-to for all American Crafts collections but in digital form. This is where to go to get those older hard-to-get collections. I mostly use the Crate Paper lines myself, but you can find almost every line from any of the AC designers!
Suse Fish’s Etsy Shop is my newest addiction! I love Suse’s fun, girly style and her digital kits pair extremely well with Felicity Jane products.
These are the supplies that I generally use for all of my memory keeping and art journaling. They are the absolute basics like paper, tools, and adhesives.
I get most of my art supplies from Blick. I stock up on basics like drawing/watercolor paper from Michaels during their sales. I also sometimes use an assortment of craft paints from Martha Stewart, Craft Smart, Folk Art, Americana, and Target. My watercolor pencils and gouache are from Arteza. I also get a lot of my pens from JetPens.
Below is an in-depth overview of my most favorite art mediums, paints, pens/pencils, and pastels/crayons, including favorite brands and specific colors.
pens + pencils
pastels + crayons
I get various different types of paper bits—wallpaper, old books pages, sheet music, vintage papers, and stickers—for collaging and junk journaling from an assortment of places. I also collect white paper doilies and various colored tissue paper from various shops and when they come in parcels.
I get all of my old books to alter and vintage sheet music in store from Strand Bookstore here in NYC. I rummage through their bargain $2 books and $1-2 sheet music down in the basement music section.
I order my floral wallpaper samples from Wallpaper Direct. This is the most affordable option for pretty floral wallpaper I could find.
My all-time favorite sticker shop is Lace & Whimsy Studio, where you can find both physical and digital stickers. Use the code AERIALOVELY15 to get 15% off your order.
I gravitate towards floral fabrics and get almost all my of shabby chic fabrics from online shops. Mostly, Shabby Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop, and sometimes Fabric.com. I also get some of my fabrics and lace in store at Hobby Lobby and Joann.
I purchase my leather exclusively from The Leather Guy. Besides getting some teal leather from Michaels one time, I make all of my leather traveler’s notebooks using leather from The Leather Guy. They have a great selection of leather in all sorts of colors, thickness, and textures, and the prices are super reasonable!
