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!

LOVE LETTERS

 

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
YOUR DESK?

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!
