Smiling is my favorite! I’m a quirky, hopeless romantic with a passion for design.
Maybe it was the fact that I grew up watching NOVELAS (Mexican Soaps), or the fact that I dreamed of designing wedding dresses by age 10, but mixing the two may have lead me to Papellerie. I never thought I could love my job SO much.
I graduated from the Art Institute, and landed a few jobs before starting as an intern. Now, as a Papellerette, my passion and creativity bloom! It’s super exciting to be able to create the perfect recipe by mixing a scoop of colors, pretty paper, a pint of textures, and a dash of personality. Each project is unique, because each story is unique.
The best of all is the greatness of working with a fearless group of ladies, The Papellerettes. They put the icing on the cake… and I like cake!
where do you find inspiration?
Life. Seriously, inspiration is found everywhere depending where you’re at, who you’re with and what you want. Everything is like a puzzle or like Candy Crush, just put the matching pieces together. (P.S. I love that game!) So when a new love story walks through our door, it’s game on!
WHAT COULD WE ALWAYS FIND IN
Lead holder, PENS…lots of pens! The brighter, the better. Also, Handwritten notes, and to-do lists are the best :)
WHEN I'M NOT DESIGNING I AM...
A youth leader and a musician at church. yes, very involved, but yes, totally worth it! I’m also a pet mommy to Ginger Elle Quintana. She’s a handful, but she’ll have you eating out of her paw in no time - my sweet little fluff ball! <3
FAVORITE COLOR COMBO?
Currently, I LOVE coral! Add a bit of white, maybe beige and GOLD - beautiful!
FAVORITE WAY TO UNWIND?
I love to go for a jog and just go. It makes me feel unstoppable and I can enjoy the beauty of nature. Then, I bake and eat a giant cookie - but it totally cancels out since I did exercise ;). Yes, that’s how it works!
I wanted to thank you and your team for everything you did to make the wedding weekend such a success.
The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. I loved all the signage, table numbers, napkins, seating chart.... I will make sure you get photos!! You and your team were a delight to work with, so much talent in one building. I wish you all only the best as your business grows. I will miss working with you all.
Thank you once again for making my hosted events over the top beautiful!!!
