Cardstock paper sign by Linda Barrett of Paper Source (check out the mini demonstration below)
Last week I was invited to the Paper Source’s headquarters in Chicago to discuss a few collaboration opportunities
as well as an upcoming book event
. Let me just start by saying Oh Wow
! If you love paper and tall things crafty, this is one place you can dream of visiting one day because is all you can imagine and even more.
First stop, the craft/stamp room! Who wouldn’t enjoy working in such place? Crafting all day? Yes please! It is here where all the amazing ideas are brewing, developing and prepared for the big launch on stores all around the country.
Next, we made ourselves at home in one of the brainstorming sections. The room is chalk-full of new illustrations/ideas pinned on antique doors, windows, inspiration boards – you name it! We set down and discussed ideas on incorporating Silhouette Art
with a few projects/products for Paper Source and an upcoming book event this Fall.

Than the fun began! The amazingly talented Linda Barrett, set up a sweet demonstration with the Silhouette machine
. Have you all seen or know about this handy dandy machine? It does all sorts of cool things and yes, you guessed it – it makes silhouettes. Oh la la!
Here I am with my wonderful PR agent Jamie Mazursky (left) and Linda Barrett (right).
I just love this last picture! Being in the middle of this hallway filled with displays of cards and paper products left and right, was soo inspiring for me.
