Trip To Ghent + Stationery Haul

Yesterday we decided to go to Ghent for the day.
The weather was perfect. Lots of sun, but with a breeze. Perfect to spend the day in the city.

Although Ghent is my birth city, it was a while ago we went there.
I’ve only lived there as a baby and when I was older I occasionally visited some friends there. I really love the city, as it’s not too big and has some great places to visit.

First stop was Pipoos, an art store of course, where I bought some stationery supplies which you can see in the pictures below.


1. Ranger Dylusions Ink, Ranger Crackle Accents medium & Distress Ink

I do have some other Distress Ink, which I love and use a lot. I really liked these colors too, so I decided to buy these also. However, I haven’t tried the Dylusions Ink Sprays and the Crackled accents medium.
The Dylusions Ink Sprays are meant to create beautiful blended backgrounds for cards or art journal pages. The Crackled Accents medium you can apparently use to give stickers, and other things and aged and crackled look. I’m so excited to try these ones out!

2. Paper Poetry Stickers

You might have noticed I love cacti and succulents and I’m currently also obsessed with flowers, so I had to buy these gorgeous stickers from Paper Poetry. I didn’t notice the packs had 3 different type of stickers until I opened the package, but I love them!
You get 2 sticker pages for each design, so lots of stickers to use πŸ˜€

3. Rico Design Paper Patch


This cute succulent paper you can use for different projects. I think I might cut out some of the images to use in my bullet journal or use some pieces for creating a background in my journal.

4. CraftEmotions My Bullet Clear Stamps

Clear Stamps

I’ve bought these little clear stamps because there just perfect to use in my bullet journal.
I don’t use a lot of stamps in my bullet journal, but I just couldn’t resist buying these. I think I’ll try these out soon πŸ™‚

Next stop was Lush. My favorite store for cosmetics. I love love love their products. I haven’t used anything else for a couple of years now.

We didn’t do much shopping after that (gotta save some money!), but we did explore the city and went PokΓ©mon hunting for the rest of the day, hahahahaha. Oh, and we did some geocaching too in this graffiti alley!

Grafi Street

It was a beautiful day and before we went home we decide to visit Pasta La Vista, a little pasta bar in the outskirts of Ghent.

I hope to visit Ghent soon again!

Hope you liked this post!

    Those clear stamps are hard to find here in the Philippines. I really like the details of that stamp. Wish I live in your region. 😊
