Lasting Impression: The Home of Craft Supplies in the Metro

14 June

If you are looking for a Craft Store which is in between north and south, I believe you have been hearing long about Lasting Impression. It is a one-stop shop for all scrap booking, paper and crafting needs. Guess you want to know more about this spot. Then, continue reading.
Lasting Impression is located at 216-A V. Ibanez Street, Brgy Little Baguio, San Juan City . First and foremost, there is no direct way on getting there thru public jeepneys. Only via cab or your own private car. However, in my case as a born explorer, me and my boyfriend managed to get there by walking. Okay, let’s start.
  1. From EDSA south, drop by Robinsons Galleria and use the footbridge to go to the other side.
  2. Ride a jeepney going to Greenhills.
  3. From Greenhills, walk towards the intersection which has the Wilson St signage. and cross on to the pedestrian to get to the side where you can see Caltex.
  4. Walk straight (you will walk inside a subdivision. I believe this is a 15-20 minute walk hahaha!) until you see Gloria Maris and then turn right  .
  5. Continue walking. Noticeable establishments are Country Chicken and Serenitea. If you pass by a Korean Salon, you are already near.
  6. Turn right on V. IBAÑEZ street and then look for a yellow house. Look for the door with doorbell and sign of letter “A”.
  7. Enter the home of scrap booking, paper and crafting needs!

As you go inside, you will pass by tables with planners, planner inserts, craftmate folio and other planner essentials. I was drooling over the color crush planners. I like it but I have my own binder already so I’ll just settle on admiring its beauty.

We were assisted on going to the main store. Most of the items are on the second floor of the house. You will be welcomed with this huge rack of inks, stamp pads and for those who are into embossing, they have embossing powder.

In this corner displayed are punchers and some fountain pens.

And then for creative planners, these are the products that most of you would surely want to check. I personally looked for the availability of these so that I would know what to get on next visit.

Acrylic Stamps – lately, I have been really fond on using clear stamps.  Acrylic or Clear stamps have been popular nowadays to scrapbookers and planner girls. These are transparent stamps that are are sticky on the back and are placed on an acrylic block for stamping. Lasting Impression has a loooooooooooooot from different manufacturers.

They also have Fiskars products like squeeze pucnhers.

They have this big acrylic stamp and large collection of ink stamps.
A wide range of ink stamps are also available. All can be seen on big racks. Prices differ per brand and the cheapest I saw was I think P110.00.

For those who are into journaling using Journal Cards/Specialty Cards, there are also variety of cards available just like these.


Those are the items I looked for at Lasting Impression that helps me in my creative planning hobby. Sssshhh. I know you’d love to know too. Hahahahaha. Are there things you would like to know not on my list if available? Shoot me a comment and I would be glad to confirm if there is.  Meantime, here’s my set up for my Journal Binder using the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner List Pad in floral. It only costs P150.00. It’s for 4 rings so I covered the edges with washi tapes and punched 6 holes to it.
