PC090154 How absolutely gorgeous are these designs!?

They are the brain candy of Elva of Elva Marie’s Paper.  Her designs are modern, whimsical and colorful.  Looking through her gallery, you can see the personality of her clients, as well as how well Elva keeps up with the wedding trends.


I had the opportunity to chat with Elva.  Feel free to eavesdrop:



T:  What inspires your work?

:: EMFP :: Definately the couple! I love it when couples come to a consulation together. It’s so fun to watch them get excited about picking out colors, wordings, and fonts. I thrive on their excitement, and we usually work together to create a design that will suit their event. Don’t get me wrong, I work with a lot of clients via phone or email, and have created some beautiful things for them, but it’s just not the same.

T: When coming up with a new design, what are your favorite textures, colors, etc. to work with?

:: EMFP :: I really like working with handmade, and Japanese papers. I also like using vellum overlays, and pocket folds. Even though pockets folds have been around awhile they are pretty new to New Mexico and people are going nuts for them!

I like working with colors that aren’t exactly traditional. Oranges, greens, blues, yellows, and pinks are my favorites. Lately I’ve been getting requests for reds, and browns, but not much for anything else!

T:  What is your favorite design currently available to clients?

:: EMFP :: My favorite job is what ever I am working on now! Currently, I am working on 3 very different projects. A pocket fold in graphite with ruby Swaroski crystal accents, and jobs that include a vellum overlay. One of them is for a 25th anniversary where the couple will be renewing their vows. We used their original wedding photo on the overlay and it looks amazing!

T:  What tips do you have for clients who would like couture invites or when choosing their invites in general?

:: EMFP:: Don’t settle for anything that you aren’t completely in love with!
