Off to the Lakes

Whoop whoop, I am heading off to the Lakes today for a visit and tour of The Paper Mill.  There are four crafty bloggers going to spend the day there, and we’re even going to get to make our own paper. 


It’s no secret I love their card and paper, I have been using it since I first started making cards and was so pleased I could still buy the card from them direct after their shops closed down, so guess who is going to stock up again today hahaha.  Defo taking hubby’s car cuz the boot is huge and I am to fill it.

Doesn’t it look gorgeous?  The picture was taken from the Paper Mill Blog


I should have some photo’s to share when I get back tomorrow (going to get me some shopping in tomorrow before we head back home.


  1. Wow!! Lucky you Bev, have fun and i can't wait to see more pics!!
    Hugs Hazel xx

  2. WOUW that sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you´ll have a wonderful time, and I´ll look forward to see a lot more pics from you later, but just concentrate of having fun now the next couple of days and don´t overspend too much ha ha ha.

  4. Sounds like an amazing place, thanks for the link so I can explore it from so far away . (Australia)

  5. Lucky you.

    I used to go to the actual mill (one pictured) to buy all my card from them before they shut the shop part of it. Amazing little factory in a lovely location.
    Not to far from Kendal either where there is another large craft shop but for me a little pricey.
    Have a lovely day


  6. OMG.. that sounds fantastic.. I hope you girls will have a great time.. And you better stock up.. Cause you certainly make a lot of Cards Bev..

    Enjoy the time there.. I think it sounds fantastic to make your own paper. :o)

  7. Have a lovely time.I'm sure you'll have a fab time.Enjoy.Hugs Debbie x

  8. Have a great day today. Goodluck with stocking up.


  9. Id love to go. All my card pretty much was papermill but there isn't the range of colours now that there was in the shops and I don't like not being able to feel and look at it before buying. Not found a good replacement supplier either yet. they did a textured biscuit colour one once - I got a good few sheets but how I wish id got a boxful then as I've not seen anything like it since.

    Enjoy your day. Should you take a trailer maybe?

  10. Hope you have a great day Bev, I am envious. Smiles.
    I used to love the shop at the Metro Centre. I get it from the online store now, butI would love to go there, it is not same when you can't touch it.
