I was contacted by a lovely student from a local school who had unfortunately been let down by another designer, and they were in a little bit of bother to say the least! The Graduation Ball was fast approaching and they needed invitations FAST!
They had a theme in mind and this was my brief - 'something on the line of "Starry Night" as the back drop is black with flecks of bright light, like a meteor shower, and we are thinking of colour theme black for tables with silver? white glitter on tables', and they needed to be individually addressed to each student and teacher.
And this is the final invitation I came up with. It needed to be a simple invitation with a fun formal feel to it, but it was a daunting task! After all, it's the biggest night of these teenagers lives so far!! I think the little splash of colour brought the fun into the invite, while keeping an 'on the verge of adulthood' feel to it, and yes, of course I was SO HAPPY with the final product!
Once printed, the invitation was AMAZING to look at!
From the feedback I received, all the students loved it and I'm hoping they have a magnificent evening to remember!
This invitation is available in any format for any occasion, just ask and I'll redesign and personalise it just for you!
Beautiful Lucy was turning one and her lovely Mum needed a simple invite for a small family celebration. She loves the chevron pattern that is all the rage at the moment and wanted something that was simple and special for her little girl and with a nice splash of pink, of course!. I love the way Lucy's eyes sparkle, so I had to put some stars somewhere on the invite! Isn't she just adorable!
Happy Birthday Lucy! Love LiiArtsa xx
A sparkly new invitation is just what this wonderful customer ordered!
Turning 50 is a big occasion, and a big occasion needs a beautiful invitation! So it was LiiArtsa to the rescue. And this tech-savy customer chose to email and sms her invitation instead of printing....economical and thrifty!
I just love this invitation, so much so that I have decided to place it on my personal must-use invitation list! I mean, who doesn't love a bit of bling every now and then!?!
Welcome to another custom invitation design that I thought was perfect to become part of my LiiArtsa catalogue and available for all to purchase!
I really didn't have much of a brief to work from apart from 'maybe something beachy - and with a photo'. That gave me a lot of freedom to design whatever I could think of! And of course, it came with the stress of wondering if the customer would like my vision! And thank goodness she did! I hope her son loves it too :)
Summer Daze is available to order now!
And don't forget to check out the other invitations in the children's birthday range :) www.liiartsa.com.au/childrenteenager-birthday-invitations
LiiArtsa has received another custom request invitation design!
Firstly - honestly, without all of my customers that place so much trust and faith in my capabilities to create an amazing design, I wouldn't have all of the spectacular designs I now have available to you all!
Back to the subject...I received a request for a baby shower invitation and they loved the idea of a baby elephant and the colours pink and grey. Hmmmmm, a baby elephant hey? So I put on my design thinking cap and I magically created the elephant! I used a circle, some rectangles, semi-circles, a u-turn arrow, a half-moon and some bananas, oh and lovehearts!! Can you see them all??? I just LOVE this elephant!! I'm calling her Ellie! haha how original ;)
Also available are Round Thank you Swing Tags and Kit Kat Chocolate Thankyou Wrappers, all to complement the original design.
If you would like these in a different colour - just ask! You know I'll say 'of course, no worries' :D
I thought I'd share some of my latest custom design sneak peeks to you all! I have been extra busy with custom designs lately and some of them are unable to be shared in full as they are specifically for the customer and not re-sold as part of LiiArtsa's catalogue. So you can now have a little sneak peek at the design and the rest is up to your imagination!
Some you will get to see on my Facebook page - www.facebook.com/liiartsa - don't forget to pop in and 'like' the page as well so you can keep up-to-date with new invitations. I also post party decoration ideas and party food ideas, anything that sparks my interest and that I think you may be interested in too!
NEW Children's Invitation! Giddy-Up! A perfect invitation for your horse infatuated daughter...what little birthday cutie isn't going to fall in love with this invite?
This was a custom request for a gorgeous girl, and I absolutely adore it, so now it has joined the LiiArtsa family and has become part of the LiiArtsa birthday invitation catalogue! I pretty much had free reign on this, the only stipulation was a cute horsey looking invite.
This design also comes with Thank You party bag swing tags! Too cute hehe
And LiiArtsa sends special birthday wishes to Georgia - I hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration!! LOVE my job!!!
I was asked to create a Kissing Menu for a wedding....something I had actually never heard of! But what a great FUN idea for a wedding reception!
The mother of the bride requested this after I created a Bachelorette Martini invite for the bride-to-be. It had to match the theme and colours of the wedding - and they virtually had it designed for me so it wasn't hard to re-create their wishes!
LiIArtsa has been super busy lately and the blog has suffered from neglect :(
A new custom request invitation was created for an excited little girl - pastels, rainbows, sparkles and unicorn were my brief....and I think this is a pretty amazing result :) Apparently she let out a scream when she saw the sample on her Mum's email - how cool is that?!!!
If you are hosting a birthday soon, don't forget to ask LiiArtsa to create your magical invitation!!
Thomas the Tank Engine - I knew this custom request would come one day!
Finally! After what seems like an eternity, I have found the inspiration to create a MINECRAFT birthday invitation! Thanks to a beautiful friend for referring her sister to me, a Minecraft invitation request was received. After my son's birthday last year I have been meaning to create one - Minecraft is the game of the century if you ask any 8 to 11 year old boy.....or girl (my daughter loves it too)!!
It took quite a while to create the blocks effect! And playing around to get the right digital impact took what felt like forever....but I got there and I'm really stoked with how this turned out :)
haha I LOVE THIS! Can't wait to show it to my kids when they get home from school!
I'm currently working on a new baby announcement as well so stay tuned for my next update - it's a custom request so I will be waiting until after the birth of the gorgeous bub before I post the new announcement.
Ding Ding....ALL ABOARD!!! It's been another busy week at LiiArtsa :) I was asked to create a Train invitation for a soon to be adorable 2 year old. And the theme was TRAINS! Lots of colours and a fun invitation was the directions for this invite. Do you know how therapeutic digital colouring-in can be? I thoroughly recommend it!
You can choose to have a picture of no picture with this invitation.
I hope the birthday boy loves it when he sees it :) I know his Dad does, and it has received my kids seal of approval too!
Wishing you all a happy week! x
A NEW birthday invitation suitable for both adults and teenagers! Luxe Car....a sleek and sophisticated invitation perfect for the male who wants a simple invitation - or even the lady who loves sports cars!!
This was a custom request invitation that I loved so much, I recreated it for my catalogue available to you all!
A n uncomplicated and effective invitation that speaks for itself.
NEW invitation re-design!! How cool is this re-design of the LiiArtsa Rock Star invitation for a Year 7 Graduation?!! I wasn't really given a scope from the customer, just that it was for a Year 7 Graduation. As there wasn't much time, I looked over my catalogue of designs and combined the Rock Star invitation with the adult Party Time invitation and this is the outcome - TOTALLY AWESOME!!! I'll also design this for a children's/teenager party so keep a look out for that one in the future. Just another example of how LiiArtsa can change design formats to suit your occasion :)
I thought I'd share a custom invitation request I received from a lovely return LiiArtsa customer.
Her little girl is turning 3 and LOVES Dora and Diego, and when a little girl wants Dora, Diego AND Boots having a Fiesta party on her birthday invite and can't find what she would like in the store available invitations, then LiiArtsa just can't say no :) She was very specific, they all HAD to be wearing party hats, especially Boots! Little girls are so adorable!
A unique glittery girls bowling invitation is LiiArtsa's NEW design creation!
A custom invitation was requested from a lovely LiiArtsa client - a bowling invitation for a girly girl. That really got me thinking, bowling and girly girl was a hard task for me to think of something suitable that was also fun and completely different from everything already on offer in the invitation market....but I managed to come up with the goodies...and I'm really happy with this one :)
Lots of sparkles and fun for all! Makes you want a bowling birthday party, doesn't it?!
Hellooooo ladies!! Who doesn't love a martini?! And this invitation is the perfect way to invite all of the bride's closest friends to help her celebrate her upcoming wedding. The text is fully customisable - all you have to do is provide a stunning photo of the bride-to-be and LiiArtsa will manipulate her face onto the body of the martini girl!! So perfect!! I am sure this invite will rock her world!
This invite was a custom request for three lovely bridesmaids organising a bachelorette party for their beautiful sister and friend. Their wishes for an invite were explained as "maybe a burlesque lady with a photo of the bride's face. Something simple and fun with a picture of the bride sitting in a martini glass or a chair off to the side of the invitation". And the invitation below was created!
Loving this invite! All text and person's head is customisable!
This can also be a fantastic female adult birthday invitation!!! Just ask LiiArtsa!!
I recently was contacted by a lovely customer interested in the custom designed Hawaii Five0 invitation. Of course, I was able to re-design the invite for the event she had in mind ;) She also enquired if I do favour tags (3x3 inch) to compliment the invitation. As anyone who reads my website knows, all you have to do is ask!! And this was the final outcome, which was pasted multiple times on US Letter size paper and emailed out to her ready to print and cut. One hole punch and they are ready for use!!
I received a request not too long ago for a 40th birthday invitation for the lovely Rachel. A 40th birthday is something to celebrate, that's for sure!!
The brief was ' sepia tones, old fashioned, maybe with Donnelly River general store in the background,' as well as all the details for her event. And below is the finished product - as with all my invitations, I really love the end result :)
Thanks Rachel for choosing LiiArtsa for your special birthday invite and I hope you have a lovely, toasty birthday weekend celebration!
LiiArtsa had the pleasure of designing a classically simple and elegant wedding invitation for a last minute bride! The lovely couple were originally becoming husband and wife in November but didn't want to wait so they decided an wedding in March was now their plan! That gave me less than 6 weeks to design and prepare invitations....many designers would have said no or even impossible! But not LiiArtsa!!
This is where LiiArtsa handmade invitations came to fruition - YES! I now do handmade invitations especially for those last minute orders where you can't wait for the printing time-frame required by LiiArtsa's suppliers. These are the same quality you would expect from the printers I source, if not better! And handmade with LOVE!
Back to the Eternity invite :) As it was a last minute change, the bride and groom decided on an intimate destination beach wedding in a secret location to be told to the small number of guests invited on the day of the wedding. How exciting!!
They were designed as a postcard style invitation using professional tape to bond the digital prints together. As a special touch, 3 diamante's were used to represent the groom, bride-to-be and their daughter. I loved this design so much I decided to include it in my catalogue of invitations!!
More of the Eternity range can be viewed at
As with all LiiArtsa invitations, this can be changed to suit any style of event - I think this would look gorgeous as a 25th silver anniversary invitation or even a 60th diamond anniversary!
Congratulations to Mel and Chris and I hope you have a long and happy marriage together. xx
