Craft Supplies

Shopping Cat

Interested in purchasing any of the products I used in the tutorials? Well, I don’t sell anything, so I’ll direct you to my pretty awesome sources.

Simon Says Stamps

They have the biggest variety of papercrafting products I’ve seen. All the great brands are there and their brand is exceptional as well.

Hero Arts

Possibly my favorite brand. I subscribe to their monthly kit for the past year and have really enjoyed it. I also use a lot of their stamps and other products.

Stampin’ Up 

This was my first source of supplies and techniques. The people I am directing you to are the people who got me involved in paper crafting (i.e., saved my sanity), so please support them if you can. I will always be grateful to them getting me started!

Bethani S. of Los Altos, California (add as demonstrator, no site)

Pam W. of Santa Clara, California (now in Chicago, IL)

Tobe B. of Castro Valley, CA (add as demonstrator, no SU site)

Etsy Shops

Etsy is probably my favorite online shopping site. I find unique gifts and supplies through a huge amount of artisans. Here are some of my favorites:

Rubber Stamps (in no particular order): Picture Show Rubber StampsMountainside Crafts, 100 Proof Press, Cherry Pie Art Stamps, Asspocket Productions (odd name, great custom stamps), The Old Island Stamp Company, Dragonflybuzz’s Rubber Stamps, pinkflamingo61, Butter Side Down Stamps

General Craft Supplies: We The Sciencey, Altered Attic (hilarious stamps and great supplies), Ppappappiyo (an adorable, quirky Korean artist with stamps, supplies, and great stickers)

Big Box Shops

The regular Michaels and Joann’s for me. I teach classes at Michaels (the one in Mountain View, CA) and really wish I could use outside supplies sometimes, but they do have just about everything for the basics. (I a few issues with Hobby Lobby, so don’t buy from them.)
