Paper Source - How I Love Thee


Last year for my birthday, my husband planned a trip for us to San Francisco.  One of the places that I couldn't wait to go visit was a store called Paper Source.  You can see my visit HERE.  If you love all things paper, you will LOVE Paper Source.  It is a unique retailer filled with specialty paper, custom invitations, gift wrap, craft supplies and so many other products to inspire creativity!

I have wished and wished that Paper Source would open a location in Austin, TX.  My wish came true recently and one of their newest stores is just minutes from my home.  I was ecstatic to say the least when I heard the news! 


On Friday when both of my girls were in school (a rare occasion for a Friday), I had the afternoon to myself and decided to make the awaited trip to the new Paper Source store.  I think when you see my pictures, you can see why one could easily fall in love with all of their pretty products and find inspiration in every inch of their stores.


How fabulous is this glimmer wrapping paper?

 
Loving this sparkle paper.


Flowers made from their paper flowers kits.



Beautiful inspiration board


Fun crafts for kids. 


How fun are these paper flowers? They would be the perfect addition for parties! This Party Starburst Kit can be found here.

  1. I heart them too! We are getting a second one here in Seattle, and it will be near the Impress rubber stamp store, so I'm in crafting heaven!

  2. This reminds me of a store that I used to visit for those types of things, it stood out from the chain Michael's, it was a bit more priced, but I still loved to visit, I went to a couple of workshops there, they called it the scrapbooking store, but it was so much more than that, and then once I began to seriously fall madly and deeply in love, the closed it and merged with Michael's. SMH! I wish I could remember their name right now, but its been a while since they went out of business.
