Little Paper Shop is the brain child of Julia Betemps! "We are a Family owned and operated company out of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada" It all started in October 2007 - Julia notes "I was trying to finish a photo album for my husband and realized there was a lack of masculine stamps. When scrapbooking or creating cards we are often in need of masculine images and in a female dominant industry there is a gap. In December 2007 with the love and support of my family I began a journey that would lead me from hobby to career and “Little Paper Shop” was created. We launched our company in April 2008 with 7 sets and 6 individual stamps, most of which are of masculine themes." This is what really drew my attention to Little Paper Shop stamps! They have many masculine themed stamp sets that you just do not see elsewhere!! Living with 3 guys myself I am tickled to find such cool looking stamps for guys of all ages.
When I asked Julia about her designs she said, "Most of my inspiration comes from my family and everyday life. I have a busy 2 1/2 year old that inspires allot of my "child" sets. My mom is a stamper as well so she sometimes gives me too many ideas! Pictures of my family have inspired allot of sets as well..... My husbands hunting pictures inspired the hunting, ATV and Camo stamp. My Dad is a Farmer." In addition Little Paper Shop has 4 designers with different styles which is how they can offer up such a variety of stamp sets!
Little Paper Shop stamps are top quality clear stamps. They are manufactured in the US using high quality photo-polymer and can only be found on their web-site - Little Paper Shop. They accept Pay-Pal and will ship internationally. Their shopping card isn't set up to deal with international orders but will gladly handle them by e-mail. You can drop them a line and will be happy to help you out!
Little Paper Shop IS an Angle Company. Julia mentions that "We would appreciate credit be given but it is not required and there are no special stamps. Mechanical reproduction however is not acceptable. All images are copyright of the Little Paper Shop."
To date their best selling sets have been the masculine line of stamps with "Caution Construction Zone" being one of their hottest sets going! At this time Little Paper Shop plans on releasing new designs each month so you'll want to sign up for their newsletter to stay on top of all their newest stamps!
On to the stamps!! As I mentioned before I am very taken with the awesome masculine stamps offered by Little Paper Shop! Ranging from individual stamps such as the Tractor, Chainsaw and Monster Truck to their dandy Fishing & Hunting sets! Just perfect for all the guys in your life...both big and little! There is also a neat sentiment set called Boys Will Be Boys ~ another excellent must have set :)
Little Paper Shop also offers up a couple really cute animal themed sets as well ~ Farm Yard Fun and Jungle Fun are just that FUN!! Gotta love that darling little rooster crowing for all he's worth - LOL!!!
