About Lea Delaveris

Before my life as a wife, mom and stationery designer, I spent 10 years in newspaper design. My work tends to be sweet and simple, and I love when I can throw in a spark of personality or humor. I also love the creative outlet and community that Minted is, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.

Hi Lea, Thanks so much for letting me know that my design was similar to someone else's. I have removed it, but if its not too much trouble could you share the link or design with me? I wasn't able to find it on Minted. Thanks so much. Appreciate it !

Thanks for the congrats Lea! 100 wins has been a goal for some time now and I was beginning to wonder if I’d ever get there. I certainly appreciate you taking the time to notice and send a note! Now if only I could get to Y (I won’t even pretend that K is achievable). One can dream.

Thanks for the white foil suggestion! That was my original intent but it looked greenish-gray when I placed it.... :-P Wonder if others are struggling with too. Maybe I'll try another route. Thank you for the input!

Hi Lea. Thanks for spotting that something looked off-center in my Luxe design, I agree. But I checked and everything was aligned correctly. I just outlined all the type and made a editable copy of it on the side because it never looks right unless you do that somehow ;-) Thank you for the heads up!
