My Visit to Paper Source, in Old Town, Pasadena

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Oops, I meant for this article to post at Midnight for my usual ‘Monday’ post but I accidentally hit the ‘Publish’ button too soon and now this is a Sunday night post, hehe, and I’m going with it. Moving forward, this Friday I visited Paper Source for the first time. My sister had been there before while in Old Town Pasadena and quickly told me about it. I've wanted to check this store out ever since, and finally made time to visit while having lunch with my mom and sisters. As soon as I walked in the door at Paper Source I was in awe. There were so many colors, and products—I was in heaven. There is so much inspiration at this store, and many tools for you to get your crafting on; for instance, their huge wall of high quality rubber stamps, embossing powders, favor boxes, tags, and so many other things. Their wall of wrapping paper has also got me thinking about not only using them to wrap gifts but also trying to figure out what else I can use them for because each print is so beautiful; and, I’d love to see what else I can use them for—perhaps things like, using them as a background while taking product images, or napkin rings. So many possibilities. But enough talk—take a look at all the pictures I took below. 
What do you think? Great store right? I loved these two stamps I purchased from their store—and I couldn't help but get myself some stickles, hehe. I’m definitely already planning to return very soon because they have so many things I’d love to get my hands on. 


  1. OMG that store is so cute! If I ever went into that store, I know that I would be there for hours!!

  2. That's such a cute store. There are two locations in my city and they have such cute items. I love their stamps, but they are so pricy. >.< I prefer dollar stamps from Micheal's.

  3. Wow! This looks like an awesome store. I bet I could spend all day in there!

  4. Thank you for posting about this. I'm going to LA soon, and Pasadena is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. I'll have to check this place out. It looks so fun!
