I moved away from my hometown of Waco, Texas to Houston in August of 2014 just to intern with Papellerie! Being born and raised in Waco, and then getting my bachelors at Baylor University (sic ’em Bears!), I had never lived anywhere else, so coming to Houston was a huge move, but I couldn’t be happier!
I was so happy when I was asked to be an official Papellerette! Every day at work is a completely new day, and I love that I get to spend it with these inspiringly creative group of women. It’s so much fun! I have truly found my passion here.
Experimenting with different papers and colors is one of my favorite things about designing and this is really what inspires my process. I could look at paper swatches and foil colors for hours!
The most exciting thing is seeing your designs come to life. It is so incredibly rewarding and will never get old. It’s literally impossible for me not to dance and squeal around the office when something comes in from the printer! (Sorry to bust your eardrums, ladies. I just can’t help it.)
Where do you find your inspiration?
Paper samples and swatch books. I LOVE PAPER.
What could we always find in
Like, all the swatchbooks. If one of the girls is looking for a certain swatchbook, and can’t find it anywhere, it’s probably at my desk. Oops... sorry ladies!
What’s your favorite thing to listen to while designing?
I listen to everything from Ben Rector to Big Sean. (obviously, it ranges greatly)
Favorite way to unwind?
Wine and Skype dates with my best friend who lives in NYC!
Favorite color combo/scheme?
Holographic and disco balls (those definitely count as colors, right?)
I could not live without?
My dog, Kimber! She’s the cutest.
Favorite thing about being a papellerette?
Everything!! But if I HAD to pick one, it’s definitely the people I get to work with and see everyday
I showed my mom the save the dates and we are both SO happy with the way they turned out –
outstanding job on those. We’ve actually even already had a friend receive theirs and compliment it!

Ditto! That party was the best ever. Thank you for paying attention to all the details so we could just have fun. I felt like a total diva.

Hey there! I just wanted to tell you how incredibly well your designs were received at the wedding — people were RAVING about everything, and we had several people tell us it was the most fun wedding they’d ever been to, no doubt in my mind that is because you pulled off awesome designs that added a personal touch of goofiness and silliness while still maintaining style. You guys are amazing and I will refer anyone and everyone who asks your way.
Thank you so much for all you did for our wedding!
Connie Itner, bride
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and express how very grateful we are for the wonderful job you and your team did on all of our print materials. We LOVED them and so enjoyed working with you. Your team is top notch and we hope we have the opportunity to work with you again next year!
All the best,
Senior Corporate Market Director- Heart Ball
