My favorite things
Welcome to Heart Paper Soul. An online paper boutique specializing in day-of-wedding items. Our paper designs consist of menu cards, wedding programs, place cards, escort cards, table numbers, welcome signs and specialty signage and now featuring hand glittered greeting cards, sprinkling the love for all occasions.
Founded in 2002 by Michele Garcia in Santa Cruz, California. At a young age Michele has had a passion for all things paper, holidays, entertaining and any reason to celebrate!
Within months of starting her wedding business in 2002, her wedding items were featured in IN STYLE WEDDINGS magazine and shortly after that feature, she was approached by the OPRAH WINFREY show for a special wedding segment hosted by Carley Roney, founder of THE KNOT. Her items have continuously been featured in the following blogs and publications; CARATS AND CAKE, STYLE ME PRETTY, THE KNOT, STRICTLY WEDDINGS, TAHOE UNVEILED, AUGUST WILLOWS, TODAY’S BRIDE, WEDDING CHICKS, INSIDE WEDDINGS, MAGNOLIA ROUGE, MODERN BRIDE, SOUTHERN BRIDE and most recently, on MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS two years in a row.
She has a sharp attention to detail and is very meticulous – She treats each wedding project as if they were for her own. Nothing brings her more joy knowing that her paper items are shared with so many couples and their guests on one of the most important days of their lives. Many of her paper items become keepsakes for many years and she has worked with families numerous times.
As a little girl Michele has had a passion for shopping and recently created a line of mini-hand glittered greeting cards with over 200 designs. They are mostly in collections to accommodate all types of stores and are beginning to pop up in stores nationwide. She has a gourmet collection, spa collection, plant collection, bridal collection, lingerie collection, pet collection, entertaining collection, baby collection and of course every holiday collection you can possibly think of. All her cards come with cute sayings but they can be customized with your very own! Just inquire and she can customize our cards for you!
