2nd May, National Scrapbooking Day

What a perfect day to go stash shopping:-)
I went, with my sister to the new scrapbook shop that is situated in Faversham (just outside Faversham to be exact) today and WOW, what a lovely shop and in such a gorgeous setting. The shop is called Pickleberry Papercrafts. We were offered coffee or tea as soon as we went inside and also the most gorgeous cupcakes, well it would have been rude to say no wouldn't it:-) Me and my sister had a good wander around the shop buying stash, then sat and took part in a free make and take, Thanks Girls that was great:) We then did a second sweep of the shop and found even more stash to buy. We also had a look in Jane Dean's studio, How amazing a place is that, I so wish my craft room looked like that!

Here is all the stash I bought while I was there.

Here is a couple of pictures of the free make and take session, sorry about the blurryness of the first picture.

We both had a great time and I can't wait to go back again soon:)

After leaving Faversham we popped to Scrapbook sisters where I spent a few more pennies on these. I can't believe how much ric rac I bought, but i love it:) The little pack at the top of the photo is a pack of playing cards with lovely japanese pictures on them, I couldn't resist:)

We then popped into Bybrook Barn on the way home and I bought these:

I don't usually buy the goody bags, but I had just paid £10 for a pack of 12x12 and a pack of handmade 8x8 when I noticed the same paper packs in the goody bag along with lots of other stash, so I swapped the paper packs for the goody bag, and for an extra fiver I got lots of stuff in the bag. The transparancies I just love, first time I have seen these, so had to buy both of them.

We also stopped and Kath took some photo's of the Bluebell Woods, what a lovely sight. I, of course had forgotten my camera, but Kath took a couple of photo's for me. Thanks Kath:-)

I had a great day, spent loads of money and really enjoyed going out after being indoors for the best part of a month, firstly due to feeling very down then due to my son needing someone to care for him after having an operation. I am now going to go and stroke all my new stash:)
bye for now.


  1. Looks like you bought the whole shop! Sorry I missed you, I was over in Wales teaching a class for the day. Hopefully I'll be there next time, if you call first I'll pop over. Did you leave any cakes for me?

  2. Yes, I did leave some cakes, but they were soooo nice:) It wasn't just me that ate them though:-) There were some people from UKS there as well and we all had one! Very Yummy they were too. Your studio is gorgeous, it was lovely having a look around it. I can't wait to pop back over soon.

  3. Hi
    It was lovely to see you at Pickleberry yesterday, I was the lady doing the make and take at the same time as you. I was chatting to you outside while Jan was smoking.

  4. WOW - Yummy stash ... can't wait to see what you do with it!

  5. It was nice to see you at Scrapbook Sisters. Glad you had a good time. You certainly liked the ric rac. Don't forget to bring in your finished project next time you're passing.:)
