Looking for pet-themed products that are just as clever as they are fun? Papergirl Design delivers the goods.

The alpha dog behind this wonderful line of wrapping papers, greeting cards, and gift tags is Carolyn Clingman, a Philadelphia-based graphic designer. Carolyn graduated from art school and went to work for the Philadelphia Zoo. Her love for animals and her artistic talent resulted in award-winning campaigns for the Zoo and the beginning of a successful career as a creative force in the area’s leading-edge ad agencies and design boutiques. She’s also built a reputation for her work in mosaic tile, jewelry design, and ceramics.

When Carolyn is not in the studio, her life revolves around family and friends. Her days are filled with school projects, dance practice, baseball games, books, cooking, and gardening. She plays daily games of fetch with Rosie the Wonder Dog, her golden retriever companion seen featured on several products and appearing on the Web site. Rosie is also a pet therapy dog and she and Carolyn volunteer at a facility for physically disabled adults on a regular basis.

Carolyn’s early days of making art for friends and family naturally evolved into the Papergirl Design line of coordinated greeting cards, wrapping paper, and gift tags. Visit her Web site—papergirldesigns.net—to see samples of these delightful designs featuring cats and dogs of all kinds. Popular Papergirl Design products are available on Etsy and are also featured in a growing number of on-line sites, brick and mortal pet boutiques, and discerning variety stores.

For gifts guaranteed to warm the heart of any pet lover, remember Papergirl Designs. When you send an e-mail question or comment to the Web site, Rosie will sit up and take notice.
