For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love for all things creative! After doing invitations for friends and family, and designing everything for my own wedding that took place on August 29th, 2008, I realized that I really had a love for paper and event design. After receiving a lot of support and encouragement from friends and family, I decided to officially start my own business and pursue it as a full-time venture!  My dream became a reality in June 2009 when Matinae Design Studio was officially launched!

We are close to celebrating our third year in business and I can't express how lucky, blessed, and honored I feel! The past 3 years have been a dream come true! I have been lucky enough to have friends who have become clients and have clients who have become friends! Each and every person I have had the honor to work for has been amazing! The support and encouragement I have received from my peers in the wedding and event industry, has truly meant the world to me! This business has allowed me the chance to re-connect with old friends and classmates and has allowed me the chance to meet so many new and amazing people! To have the chance to do what I love every single day is the biggest blessing of all and I hope my love for design shows in each and every one of my products!

A special thank you to my husband and mother who I could not do this without!

We design quality paper products at competitive prices. We take time out to listen to our clients so we can build a one of a kind design for them that fits their style, personality, and event!  We also offer event styling, coordination, and rentals!

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

Ken's 50th Birthday | Jack Daniels

We got the chance to design another JD inspired birthday but switched it up a bit this time!  :)  Invitations were created using the design below and layered on white cardstock with coordinating envelopes.  We also got to design cupcake toppers and a bunting!  Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the bunting before it shipped but each panel was black with the white border design and letters spelling out "Ken's 50th Birthday". Each panel was tied together using black twine. So fun!
