Paperie Guide: Featuring Uptown Girl Designs!

Uptown Girl Designs is one of our fabulous Paperie Guide companies, and we love owner Kristina Hansen! She is a wife, mom, and paper lover! Her favorite paper goodies to design? Anything for parties, of course! As Kristina says, “From the simplest of backyard bbq’s to the swankiest of soirees, we can create the perfect invitation to set the tone for any party or event.” What I love about Uptown Girl Designs is that almost 90% of her work is completely custom! Whether it’s a baby shower invitation or a photo card for the holidays, the design is 100% unique and true to your style! Her most popular are for 1st birthdays, and she even did the 1st birthday invite called Bel Fiore for Teresa Giuidice from Real Housewives of New Jersey! Super cool!

The gumball birthday invite below still stands as one of my all time favorite invitations! How darling?! It’s perfect for boys and girls so great for a dual birthday party! And want anything tweaked? Uptown Girl Designs can custom design it for you!

About Kristina

We wanted to know a bit more about the cute designer behind Uptown Girl Designs! Here is what we discovered….

“I’m a Jersey girl with an affinity for the term “y’all” that comes from living in the Atlanta for 7 years.  I’m married to my best friend Tim who makes me laugh and feel loved more and more every day we are together.  I’m a mom to the sunniest, sweetest, smartest, sassiest, and prettiest little gal, Gabby.  My daughter is my inspiration for Uptown Girl Designs.  It started when she was born and I wanted a modern and chic birth announcement.  They were hard to come by.  Everything seemed so generic.  I eventually did find something but during the her first year I started designing my own cards for her events.  It didn’t take long for me to realize what  wanted to do.  I had always dreamed of being my own boss.  I was tired of “working for the man”.  I decided in early 2007 to work towards starting my own company.  Tim was 110% supportive, as he remains today. Gabby remains my inspiration for Uptown Girl Designs.  I want her to see what can be accomplished with hard work. To never give up. To dream big and hope for more.
