shop my favorites
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. This page does contain affiliate links to Scrapbook.com, Felicity Jane, A Cherry on Top, and other shops. 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.
Places that I get my paper crafting supplies:
- A Cherry on Top* is where I do all of my preorders for collections I know will sell out quickly. I find the preorder price is fantastic because you get 20% off using their code PREORDER.
- 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!
- Cocoa Vanilla Studio, which is an Australian brand. You can order directly from their shop, but if you’re in the US, I get their products exclusively from My Little Scrapbook Store.
- Felicity Jane,* both physical and digital products. I absolutely adore the Felicity Jane designs!
- Scrapbook.com* for literally anything and everything. I find they have the best assortment of scrapbooking products around.
- 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. Plus, all her proceeds go to charity!
Generally for scrapbooking, my go-to brands are Crate Paper, Felicity Jane, and Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I love their usage of bright pastel colors and their florals. 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.
I strictly use American Crafts 12×12 white cardstock* for all of my scrapbooking layouts.
My favorite scissors are the Cutup Scissors* from American Crafts.
I use a WRMK Crop-a-Dile Power Punch* for all of my hole-punching needs.
I use the Free Prints App to get all of my photos printed. Use code TMEDINA109 to get 90 free 4×6 photo prints. You just pay shipping.
I get most of my art supplies from Blick.* I stock up on basics like drawing/watercolor paper from Michaels during their sales. My watercolor pencils and gouache are from Arteza.* I also get a lot of my Japanese stationery from JetPens.
My all-time favorite sticker shop is Lace & Whimsy Studio. Use the code AERIALOVELY15 to get 15% off your order.
fabric + leather
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!
wallpaper, magazines + old books/sheet music
I order my floral wallpaper samples from Wallpaper Direct. My favorite magazines to get images from are Daphne’s Diary and Bella Grace. I collect Free People catalogues as well and my female model images in my art journals usually come from those.
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. For more vintage supplies, I mostly use digitals I create myself using resources from The Graphic Fairy. This site is just an absolute gem for finding vintage digital images you can freely use in your paper projects.
