HA! I love your comments! I went literal on the gemstone thing for save the dates and it didnt get picked which bummed me out so I went a little more abstract for wedding. I also recreated the save the date as a wedding invite way back during that challenge, but havent used it yet. Maybe Ill try your idea with it! Thanks for the vision, dude!;)

Thank you for your feedback. I made the changes you suggested and it has really improved the design. It's sometimes hard to look at your own design and see what needs changing. It was just what it needed to make the illustration come forward. Thanks again

Hi Ashley! Thanks for your feedback on my "we can't wait" design. It is so helpful to get another fresh set of eyes to look things over! I have another version I'm working on that's simpler & leaves out the graphic altogether. I hadn't even ever noticed it looked like a spike haha! Maybe it was like a save-the-date...or else!! ;) Thanks again.

Hey Ashley, Thanks so much for your comment on my tag design… I was told drop shadows do not print well from an employee so I was trying to avoid them. My design originally had them :( I deepened the shade of the tag a bit, leaning a bit more grey… do you think it helps or no? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/182763

Thank you, Ashley, for the constructive feedback on my "Lamps" design - The illustration is much stronger without the text! It's funny because before originally submitting, I kept staring at it and thinking, "something about this seems rather dumb..."

Hi Ashley, I just noticed that your recent entry "Phases of the Moon" looks very similar to one that I had submitted in a previous challenge and recently re-purposed into a free downloadable desktop wallpaper on my blog. I'm sure the similarity was unintentional on your part, but wanted to bring it to your attention. No hard feelings, but here is the link to my previous design: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/75024

Ashley, thank you so much for your great feedback! I was getting so confused as I was trying to get the tags to look like a repeating pattern ;) Your fresh eyes totally saw what I knew wasn't right but couldn't see. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the great feedback - I really appreciate it! the first one didn't seem to do very well; it's so hard for me to figure out what will sell -- i thought maybe the vespa would do better, but i have no clue. Thank you for your input - I might try to submit both :)

thanks for your advice and I agree. at the moment I am designing what makes me happy but since my area of design expertise is branding I also know what I need to do in the future. and one of those things is get out my water colors and develop better hand skills, they got rusty being in a management position, warmest of wishes.

Hi Ashely, thank you for your personal comment regarding my Hip Hello design. I was just trying this out as a lark, it is a layout I would personally like for my nieces who are 18 and 22. I don't really feel it fits the Minted customer, it is too modern/trendy and fits neither a women or a young girl. But I love using hot pink, I can't get enough of it. You will see my design style evolve and mature as I figure out my place within the Minted challenges. Thank for all your help and support, it is appreciated. Cheers, Robin

Love your cascade note card design, Ashley! Do these submissions need to include personalization of some kind? I was just wondering - I re-read the PDF and still couldn't be sure...

Thank you so much for your very helpful feedback. When I finished the design I thought it was cute-ish, but not quite there. You comment will definitely help me get there. :-)

Ashley, thank you so much for your helpful comment! I didn't feel like the frame/type was resolved, so I appreciate your fresh eyes seeing what wasn't working - great idea with the mirroring of the arc -thank you!!

Thanks for your helpful comment! I was kinda scared in adding a long line of copy down the headline -- but realized it needs an informative copy. Lovin' your designs too! :)
