I’ve become a huge fan of Paper Source – especially my local store here in Georgetown. It’s been a lifesaver for the Year of Letters. I don’t know of any other paper retailer with the level of quality and variety as Paper Source that beats their reasonable price point. And the staff is extremely helpful.
I’ve become a pretty regular face in the store since starting my letter-writing project – enough so I guess that they kindly invited me to a workshop that they had recently to teach cardmaking and giftmaking techniques. It was great – and they even had some snacks and wine for everyone.
I probably should have incorporated some of the new techniques I learned into this letter to them, but stay tuned, you’ll see some new things in my cards in the coming days and weeks.
I used one of Paper Source’s bags to make a liner for the envelope.
Ed, Brian, Jena, Aprill, Sam, Tyler and others,
Thank you very much for your kind invitation to attend Crafter’s Night Out last evening led by Aprill and Sam. I learned several new techniques – like how to apply gilded edges, use washi tape and even make my own gift bags. Your entire team is exceptional and it is always a pleasure to be in your store.
P.S. I also bought the marbling set…keep a look out on YearOfLetters.com for some marbling!

I’m embarrassed to say that this isn’t everything that I bought at Paper Source!
I visited Paper Source in Georgetown for the first time. I can’t believe I have never been there. Amazing store full of wonderful paper, craft and gift products. I found so many terrific items there…I was like a kid in a candy shop! I’ll definitely be back. Brian, the assistant manager, was extremely knowledgable and helpful – we need more professionals in retail like him!
Thank you so much for taking time to help me yesterday. You were extremely generous with your time and you are a hell of a salesman too – you convinced me to buy things I didn’t even know I needed until I met you. Let’s do the letter writing workshop!
I tried to heat emboss this script on the front of the card. I didn’t get enough of the VersaMark on the card so that the embossing powder would adhere.
P.S. This was my first heat embossing – I didn’t get enough of the VersaMark on the card.
