More Paris-Themed Invitations! Ooh! La! La!

Okay, I can't get enough of Paris related designs, so here are a couple of more invitations I made, which are now in my shop! This is another design idea that I started awhile back, but I just never had enough time to finish, until tonight. I really love how they came out. It sort of reminds me of those menu chalkboards that you see outside of restaurants in Paris. I was planning on adding chalk smudges to the background, but I thought these versions looked much cleaner. Of course, I'll be adding coordinating labels, tags, banners, and other party decoration designs to the shop. Sigh...these invitations make me want to throw another Paris-themed birthday party for my daughter.

It's almost 1 a.m. here in California and I should really be going to bed. Staying up this late almost every night is starting to wear me down. It also doesn't help that my kids wake up really early in the morning! I can't help it though, once I get going on something, I can't stop.

For more Paris-themed invitations and party designs, be sure to also check out my other items.

Composition Notebook and Vintage Inspired Invitation for Birthday Parties or a Shower by FLIPAWOO - Printable File For Double-Sided Printing

Remember these Composition notebooks growing up? I'm not sure if students are still using these, but I remember having to write book reports in these back in elementary school. Anyway, I had this idea awhile back to design invitations based off of these books. I was not able to start on the idea until I came across these books again at the 99 Cents Only store. I was surprised to see them there since I didn't think anyone was using them anymore! Well, I thought it was a sign to finally get going on these designs.

I went with my own designs and steered away from mimicking the well-known black and white pattern that the original Composition notebook uses for its cover. You can also see that I used a lined paper design as part of the backing of the invitation along with some sketchy handwritten fonts and borders.

Now available in my shop are PDF files of my "Composition Notebook and Vintage Inspired Invitations" to use for birthday, shower, and school-themed (graduation) parties. The vintage racing car, rocking horse, tricycle or airplane can be chosen to match the theme of your party. Other design elements such as fonts and colors are also interchangeable. The PDF files are formatted to make double-sided  5 x 7 prints.

One-sided invitation designs are also available. Contact me for more details at flipawoo{@}

Please see below for printing costs:

COST for 5 x 7 Double-Sided Prints and White A7 Envelopes:
x25 - $2.25/e
x50 - $1.80/e
x75 - $1.58/e
x100 - $1.44/e

Happy Friday!

Friday is here again! What a great week this has been for me. Since I started FLIPAWOO in November 2010, I have been having nothing, but a positive experience. Not only do I get to do something I love to do, but I get to meet interesting people in the online world almost everyday! I'm kicking myself for not starting FLIPAWOO years ago. Then again, I was working full-time and busy taking care of my first child at that time. Not to say I'm less busy now staying at home with my two kids! Seriously, how do other moms run a business, take care of the house and family? They must have extra help because I find myself staying up late completing orders. Thank goodness, I find all of this rewarding. I'm going to have to ask grandma to come over and help me going forward so that I can focus more on designing.

I have been receiving wonderful reviews of my work and here are just a few of the recent ones below:

Rene came to me asking if I could make the Paris Passport Invitation layout into a zebra designed invitation for her daughter's safari-themed 2nd birthday party. She purchased the printable file and I went off to work.

Oh my goodness! This is absolutely beautiful! We LOVE it!


Stephanie had wanted to change the color scheme of the ballerina invitation to a lighter pink and a Tiffany Blue color.

Hi Louisa,

I  just picked up the printed invite and it is beyond beautiful. Thank you so much for creating this design and for helping make my vision for Cati's first birthday a reality.


Other comments:

Oh My Goodness! You did a fantastic job! I approve.



It looks great! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I saw your blog and love it! Can't wait to keep checking back in to see what is new :o)


There's a bunch more, but I don't want to bore you with anymore. LOL

Ballerina and Cherry Blossom Invitations

Modern and dainty, this birthday or shower invitation is perfect for a ballerina-themed party. Adding a tiny gem sticker to her crown would add that extra sparkle when greeting your guests. Other ballerina designs can be found here.

There's something about cherry blossom designs that make everything extra pretty. This would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower. Be sure to check out the other color options here.

By the way, the photo of the two cherry blossom invitations is my weak attempt of trying to take a good photo. The lighting is off, but I tried. Anyone want to take professional photos for me? sigh...

The other day, a returning customer who loved the design and color scheme of my Paris Passport  invitation, asked if I could make it as a bridal shower invitation. I was excited to make this happen and had the one seen above made for her.

All of my designs in my shop are interchangeable and can be made for other party themes. Just send me an e-mail or leave me a comment below so that we can discuss some options.

Snowing in Southern California!

So it was a FANTASTIC day yesterday!! It actually snowed in Southern California. The weather was very strange this late last year. We had so much rain in December and then out of the blue yesterday, it started snowing! It was enough where kids were happily making snowmen outside of their houses! I couldn't believe my eyes and was a little bummed that I couldn't join in on the excitement outside. My husband and son were happily screaming and laughing, while I had to keep myself inside due to a nasty cold. 

My cold is starting to go away, which means I need to get cracking on posting some new designs for my shop! I'll slowly add the items throughout this week. 

If you haven't already, please join me at my Facebook page so you could stay up-to-date with my new items. You will also get 10% off any printable items. After your purchase, just let me know that you are following me on Facebook and I will refund the difference.
