This week I ended up at Pavillions in East Sacramento where Bella Bru Cafe serves the most delicious cappuccino. It was a gloriously sunny day. After hitting the usual haunts, I happened upon a little mecca for stampers and other paper enthusiasts. I love paper, note cards, writing instruments and all things connected to paper, even though I have given up on the fine art of hand written letters and note cards. But this shop makes me want to get out the rubber stamps and send someone I love a note or two.
The Paper Garden...overflowing with all things paper,
but especially for the Stampers and Scrapbookers.
I love a shop with a nice friendly atmosphere where browsing is encouraged.
And there is so much to see and enjoy!
|Beautiful papers...I wanted one of each...and they have card stock in so many colors.|
|Japanese Washi papers...aah, to give a gift wrapped in this:)|
|The selection of paper punches is huge...are these not adorable?|
|Hundreds and hundreds of rubber stamps and inks...|
|A substantial selection of the cutest ribbons and other embellishments!|
|Nosh on some candy from the front counter.|
|Naturally, The Paper Garden also has adorable gifts too!|
The Paper Garden boutique is a joy to visit and very inspiring for the creative at heart. And like all things creative, I can see how one would immediately want to start a "stash" of paper, stamps, inks, and punches. You can sign up for classes as well.
If you can't make it to their shop, at least check out their blog. Like I say, I adore this shop! Maybe I'll start stamping again or drag out that half finished scrap book...
Laurel. Send a pretty note to someone you love!
