Flow's Book for Paper Lovers [Review]

Finally, I have my hands on it! Yesterday, I received the amazing "Book for Paper Lovers" by, the very awesome Dutch company, Flow, and wanted to share it with you!

Let me start off by saying that the title is incredibly fitting, in fact, my poor paper heart exploded with joy as I flipped through its pages!
There's a very wide assortment of paper goodies that has in common stunning graphics and beautiful illustrations.
Whether you love tea, animals, flowers, architecture and whatnot, you'll definitely find something in that theme in the book. There are gorgeous mini postcards, tags, letter paper, envelopes..
..beautiful quotes, wrapping paper, and quirky and interesting crafts projects, such as a pop-up page, and a "peep box" to assemble.
Oh and, did I mention stickers? Because there are tons of them in it, too.
I honestly can't stress enough how beautiful everything is. The cure for details is amazing and I was completely blown away by the quantity of goodies that come in the book.

If I had to rate it, my vote would be 10/10 and I would definitely buy another! (Also, speaking of money.. it costs only 14.95€ which is an incredible bargain for all the goodies you get!)

Now, on to the giveaway! Flow was so kind to send me a few extra goodies for my friends, so if you'd like to win an envelope of paper treats excerpted from the book, this is your chance ☺ and this is what you have to do:
  1. Follow my blog;
  2. In a comment, tell me what your favourite paper craft is. Don't forget to leave your email as well so I can contact you if you win.
I'll pick two (2) winners on Monday, January 20th. Winners: Ashley C. & Hawwa (picked using random.org)

Good luck everyone! I'll talk to you soon!

  21. Oh, I have browsed that book many, many times!

    My favorite craft is smashbooking – Is this a 'thing' abroad as well? Well, it's basically unpretty scrapbooking. I love making traveling journals with collections of tickets, receipts and bits and pieces, all put together in a Moleskine with photographs and written words.

    I follow your wonderful blog on Feedly - Ever tried it? It's great!
