Paper Source: Adorable Calendars and Gift Items

By  | 

Paper Source is a great place to shop for a calendar, Mother’s Day or gift items.

Recently I had the opportunity to do a little shopping and decorating at Paper Source. Paper Source just opened a new store in Los Angeles at El Segundo Plaza—and it’s full of adorable items. Everything is just so cute! I didn’t realize that the stores offered calendars that you could decorate with your own stamps, stickers and decorations. Even better, the store offers DIY (do it yourself) crafting/decorating sessions with their experts to help customers learn how to use all they tools they provide. I now own two planners from Paper Source– a big 8  X 10 Paper Source confetti planner for my business meetings (on sale for $7.95)  and a small white Kate Spade little gold journal for my fashion and blog notes that I can carry in my handbag.

The Black Confetti planner offers large planner features monthly and weekly views.  I had so much fun at the in store event decorating my planner with stickers, stamps and notes to make appointments and special occasions really standout.  You can can decorate a Paper Source planner almost in the same way you can do a scrap book.  The collection of calendar stickers at Paper Source is amazing. The Calendar Sticker Book (pictured) is really playful and makes events standout. You can get so creative decorating your planner — you can “bling out” a customized planner with everything from  heat embossing tools, stamps, paper clips, washi tape, watercolors  and custom embosser adornments.  The planner literally becomes the playground for your imagination.
