Congrats on your wedding pick Ashley,so breath-taking!
Thanks so much for the sweet comment on my Vintage Lace…it was one of my personal faves, but customers were NOT a fan of it- my lowest scoring and in the 20th percentile w/ consumers- yikes!! Oh well, what can you do! Congrats on your pick, SO pretty!!
Thank you so much for that catch on the Hear Ye design! I can't believe I worked on that for so long without noticing that it was wrong. Haha. Very much appreciated!
Thanks for the lovely comment Ashley!!
thank you for your likes!! they made me so happy :) you have so many great designs!
Ahhh, you totally made me blush- thank you so much for your sweet comment, and for the great feedback on my other entries! Your entries are gorgeous as usual, Greek Key has my name all over it! :)
Thank you so much for your comments! I think they were a big help! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/268624 if you would like to check it out! thanks again! Your work is really nice - i love the painted pieces!!
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!;)
LOL/ i made a text change and just saw your comment now when I posted my new version. hope you like it! :)
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
Thankyou Ashley for your encouraging comment on my Gallery Wall design. Really appreciate it :)
Hi Ashley, I made some changes and would love your opinion if you have time. Thanks again for your input. Much appreciated. Chris
Hi Ashley, thanks so much for the feedback. After eliminating the middle foliage, I am not even sure where to start in simplifying this. I think you are right and I may have to take this totally back to the drawing board. Yikes. :)
Ashley your idea is awesome!!!! I will definitely play with and see how that works. Thank you so much for the great feedback.
Thanks Ashely for your sweet comment on my "Cute Heart 2" artwork!
Thanks for the 'like' on my design Ashley
Thank you so much for your feedback Ashley, your suggestions were so helpful! I started a poll and would love to know what you think! And you're spot on about the Pinterest door. I merged a few of my favorites for the illustration, but that turquoise one is the obvious inspiration :)
Ashley, thanks for your suggestions on my bruncheon design. They were absolutely spot on - I played with the colors and changed the champagne glasses. Hopefully giving better focus on the copy. Thank you, I appreciate getting your feedback!
Good catch on the uncapitalized name in my design "stylish bachelorette". I'll fix it and edit my submission. I appreciate your comments!
Thank you for your suggestion on "Mr.Bunny" Ashley :-D It looks nicer.
Thank you for letting me know it should be Paddy's not Patty's :) I never knew that!!
Thank you so much for all the amazing feedback! I just figured out how to comment here.. Ha! newbie here .. Lol
Thanks so much! I took your suggestion and I think it works a lot better now!
Really Ashley? Thank you so much for the confidence boost. Feeling a little beat up this week, lots of highs & lows in just a short time and I am about to turn 40 in 2 days! You made my day.
You are so sweet - your comment made my day, Ashley! Thanks! :)
Isn't that the cutest Rolling Pen glyph? :)
Hi Ashley! Thanks for the feedback on my "Lucky in Love" entry. I feel the exact same way ... something is missing but I can't quite put my finger on it. Hopefully I can come up with some edits before the challenge is over!
Thanks for the feedback, Ashley. I'll work on another version that has a longer month. 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.
Thanks Ashley just wanted to say that so i will fix that and let me know what you think thanks as usual love your submissions
thank you so much for the note on the birds Ashley... i wanted to scale them down but illustrator says 'can't scale objects yada yada, haha' (as it laughs at me) and eats up so much of my ram trying to resize them i gave up - but hoping i'll get a last minute rally and win the fight against my computer before the challenge ends, lol ;)
Thanks so much for your "likes" on my new work! Much appreciated!
Thanks so much for the helpful feedback! :)
Thanks for the feedback on my seashells design, Ashley! :)
Thanks Ashley! I've been centering all of my text on these journals, not sure why! I'll give it a try a bit higher - thanks again for the suggestion :)
Hi Ashley! Congrats on your win. And Thank you very much for the sweet comment. :)
Let's plan it! What's a good date and place you think? I can message u later on Facebook
you always have such great feedback- thank you thank you!! I struggle with copy.
We need a NC meet up - I'd love to finally get to meet you in person :)
Hi Ashley! Thanks so much for the foil advice. I am completely clueless on how to do it so I will definitely use your kind advice. So appreciated. Chris
LOL - thanks, Ashley! :)
Hi Ashley! Thanks so much for your feedback on Glory to God. I totally didn't see the tombstone but now that you mention it, I do. Not sure if I have time to update and with 3,000 entries, I highly doubt it's a contender. Best of luck in the competition!
Thanks again. It's a total bummer about drop shadows bc I LOVE them :(
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
Hi Ashley, I tweaked the poem. Check it out when you get a minute and thanks for the advice! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/182741
Hi Ashley! Thank you very much for the help and comment. Yeah! You're right. Thanks so many. :)
Thanks so much, Ashley! I have a poll with more color options if you have a moment... http://www.minted.com/design-rating/162631
thanks want to know how to improve it more thanks
Thanks so much, Ashley!!! I really appreciate your comment. :)
Haha! Beautiful stick...you made me laugh! Thank you ;)
Hi Ashley thanks for the feedback.. Unfortunately i read it after I woke up (we have different time zone) but I got what u mean.. And when it gets picked I will make the changes. Also, I differentiated the front n back flap just for presentation… ;) imagining if the card being swayed back n forth (like the ads… ;D…) thanks a lot!
Hi, Ashley. I love your work! I just posted a question on the forum that I thought you might have some helpful insight on. If you have time to interrupt your holiday cheer and give it a look, please weigh in: http://www.minted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=296&page=1#Comment_14611
Thanks a million!
Thanks so much for your feedback on my "the search is over" invite. I finally got a chance to go in and make some major changes and it definitely looks better!!!
Ashley, why did you change the type on your Night Garden design? I liked it before (without the diamond shape). :)
Ashely, thanks for your comments on my letterpress wedding invite! I made the changes you suggested, and I think it's working much better now. I really appreciate it!
Loving your art submissions – they're really subtle and gorgeous
Thanks for the reassurance Ashley ;)
thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it :)
Thanks so much for your helpful comments, Ashley!! I shrunk the heart a tad and fixed the centering. I also noticed I had neglected to change the color of the stroke outlining "LOVE," so that's fixed, too, and "LOVE" is a little beefier. Thanks so much, again!!!
That is great you are working on the design of the peacock. Your designs are amazing. I get a lot of inspiration from them
Ashley, you seriously give the best feedback! Thanks so much for taking the time to give honest and helpful advice on my designs. I like the simpler dots too the more I look at it :)
Thanks Ashley for your support it was by chance that it was the perfect conditions and timing that I got this shot. I want you to also know that I also like your work as well.
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..." Crazy how we sometimes need other people to point out the obvious :) Thanks again!
No worries. :) I knew it had to be an oversight. :)
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
Thanks for your super nice comment on my Halloween board, Ashley!!! :)
Ashley, you give the best feedback, thank you!! I'm still playing with it, but if you have a moment to see the updates, I'd love your honest opinion :) Thanks again!
thanks so much for the great feedback - i was thinking sunset, but the red sky thing never even occurred to me!
lol! my emails from minted have been spotty lately, and i just now saw your comment 'hipster christmas badges' -- soo funny!! thanks for the chuckle ;)
Haha, maybe I should just throw boobs in there as well! Thanks for the catch :)
Thanks for the feedback on my Bookworm design for the baby shower challenge, Ashley. I added the shadows like you suggested. If you have time, would you take a quick look and let me know if it anchors it better or if i made them to dark? Thanks so much!
Ashley, thanks for the really great comment.
hey i was on zazzle checking out the halloween invites and saw a "cool" one and its one of yours! the dark damask bat design!
Thank you for the feedback Ashley!
My eye is happy too- thanks for the catch fellow Ashley :)
Hi Ashley! Thanks for the feedback and the sweet comment on my zazzle store. ;) I'm in AWE of all you have on Zazzle and Minted. AMAZING WORK! Appreciate your time and comments. Abby
Thank you Ashley!! Totally shocked!
Hi Ashely, thanks for your advice! I am really struggle with those fonts right now. >.<
Ashley, thanks so much for the kind words! Chris
Thank you for your feedback on my "a date to remember" submission. . I've been struggling with this one and needed a fresh pair of eyes. I made some changes per your suggestions. . . Thank you again Ashley - I appreciate it!
thanks for the feedback on my wedding china design. Im having a hard time choosing another font, i am afraid to introduce a new font into the mix. Im not ignoring you, just thinking on it;) your input is always appreciated!!
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 for the encouraging comment, Ashley! Your designs are always hip, so that is a big compliment!
Hi Ashley! Thank you for your input on my marshmallow design - i made some changes and would really appreciate if you could take a look :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/104654 thanks so much :)
Hi Ashley, great suggestion, I will up the type size. Thanks, Robin
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
I hope it wins, Ashley!! :)
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 for the feedback! The letter were definitely a bit too cozy with each other! :)
Hi Ashley--I really appreciate your feedback on my catnap design. That little mouse was sort of an afterthought... So, your suggestion was really helpful! thank you! :)
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 the nice comment! It means so much to me. :)
My hubby and son are really into airplanes so I was thinking of them :)
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 so much Ashley for the sweet comment. Oh my! Sorry I used your family name in the banner, I'm thinking your family name is Newsome. :)
Thx for the sweet comment on Gilded Cake! Was hoping it looked like a cake! Ha! You made me feel better.
