About Anastasia Marie

Hello, I’m Anastasia Marie Mikailenko. I’m a designer + crafter based in the Portland, Oregon metro area. My friends call me Stacey, so you are most welcome to as well. I’m the wife to a fella named Jimmy and mama to little Henry. Anastasia Marie is a stationery + design studio that began in 2010. It originally began only as a custom design service, but has then evolved to include customizable stationery and packaging supplies in my online shop. Anastasia Marie continues to specialize in the custom handmade, which includes paper layered cards, wall art, garlands, and toppers—as well as wedding and social stationery, working with brides and small businesses to bring their life’s stories and dreams into their paper goods. Oh hey, you can even tour my studio on my blog! This blog is where I share my latest projects, new shop items, palettes to inspire your everyday, DIY projects, occasional personal bits, and my most favorite of all: gift wrapping in all its forms. Thanks for stopping by!

Gift Wrap: Cotton + Leather

September 17, 2019

Filed Under : Gift Wrap + Packaging

Things to grab:

• The usuals: scissors + tape
Handmade wrapping paper (shown in a currently unavailable color)
Olive moss velvet ribbon
Genuine leather tag (shown in mini)
• Cotton floral stem

I am a huge fan of this wrapping paper. It has so much texture and I wish the camera could pick up all the details as the eye does. The one I used is currently unavailable, but there are other neutral colors currently available in the Shop that would work beautifully with all your fall themes.

The leather tag is a spin off from my last gift wrap post with acrylic, but hey, it’s leather! These can be customized with a first name or just an initial.

Gift Wrap: Acrylic Tags

September 3, 2019

Filed Under : Gift Wrap + Packaging

The fall + winter seasons are fast approaching and I’m already brainstorming all the new things that I want to add to the Shop, which includes these acrylic tags. More styles coming soon, but let’s start with these. Of course, it also means a new gift wrap post featuring other items from my Shop as well.

Things to grab:

• The usuals: scissors + tape
Ikat wrapping paper (shown in hunter green)
Metallic gold + natural stripe ribbon
Acrylic tag (shown in clear)

This particular wrapping paper is 100% recycled cotton. Score! It comes in four different colors, all available in the Shop: hunter green, red, black, and cream. The acrylic tags are available in glossy clear, frosted clear, and glossy opaque white. Just slightly obsessing over their understand elegance.
