Hi, I'm Carol, an art director who loves a great concept, edgy designs, brilliant colors and speak-to-me typography. I'm flattered when clients ask me to design an invitation for their special event and strive to create something that's simple, yet beautiful, and tells their special story. When I hear someone say they've kept the piece as a memento, then I know I've done my job well. I'm proud to be a part of the Minted community.

Please do not include your contact info or a URL. This information could create confusion for follow-up customer service.
Thank you for choosing my design! It has been created with you and your special occasion in mind and was made for sharing. Please enjoy!

designer's eye. A long-time resident of the Mission in San
Francisco, she is constantly inspired by the diverse color and

Hi Carol, Thank you so much - I really appreciate all your kind and encouraging comments!
Thanks for welcoming me to Minted back in March, Carol! I just figured out a little while ago how to comment on people's pages so sorry for taking so long to reply!
Congrats on the block party win!! it was so well done and it's so versatile you will tons of sales! I"m in shock though on the Slumber Party - that was an awesome design!
Congrats Carol!!! :)
Hi Carol! Thanks so much for the great comment! God bless!
I know what you mean - I loved etching and silkscreen in college and there is just no way i can make that happen these days. wish i had a press in my garage ;)
Thank you so much Carol! You need to do more art prints - that snapdragon is amazing! I totally want it for my house. I can definitely see those making nice wedding invites too :)
I've been tinkering with the layout of Fifth and Vine, and added the pup and driver - not sure it's quite right yet but thank you so much for the awesome feedback!. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/89694
oh my gosh i love the idea of the dog hanging out the window. I definitely have to work that in! Thank you for the awesome feedback - I have so much work to do! You have such great ideas :)
Big Congrats on the Editor's Pick Carol!!!
Thanks so much Carol for the great help & wonderful comment. I attached the revision coz I can't edit the file.
Hi Carol, thank you for your comments on my Sweet Pinwheel Invitation. Really appreciated it! I will take your advice for my future designs. Thanks!!
Hi Carol…thanks for your suggestion. I had a previous version of the Be Curious without the text (I uploaded it for you to see), I just thought it was too simple so that is why I added text…let me know your thoughts. Cheers!
Hi Carol. Thank you so much for your detailed critique of my Screaming Good Time invitation. The ideas you gave me will be invaluable as I continue to improve my typography and overall design. Don't worry about being long-winded as every word was helpful. Good luck with the challenge. I love your work!
Carol, sooooo sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to your last note! I was working on some last minute tweaks, and I must've missed your message. I think the update looks great! :)
you are too nice! thank you! but if you're only 3 votes in, you got a lot of chances to revoke that statement;)
Thanks so much for the great feedback on my beach day design, Carol! I took your advice and I like it better now. :)
Thanks so much carol for the great comment. God bless you always!
Thank you for your comment on my Fresh New Year card and the tree being trademarked. I had no idea! I looked into it and you are sure right that image is copyrighted. Oh well!
yep, makes sense! (I personally love it when other people do messy kid things, then I don't have to!) ha! :-)
LOL.... that's what I was thinking (re the small heads)! I was actually thinking if it was a cut-out piece, maybe it could be a bracelet / name tag thing. :-)
Thanks so much for your input Carol, let me know what you think now. only if you have a sec. PLEASE and TY.:) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/87422
im not sure i understand what you mean about wrapping the string down and around the balloon? the balloon is up, LOL.. i agree about the bottom copy, need to work on it.
Thank you so much for the kind note! I was seriously shocked. :) I am loving your work, you are trying a lot of fun new things -- I see some awesome design wins in your future. :)
Thanks for the congrats Carol, you are one of the few Minties who has always given support and great advice since I've first joined!
Hi Carol! Thanks so much for the comment! Really appreciated it. God bless you always.
Stop making me give you 5s.
no worries. it might not have worked anyway. i seem to always want to add bling to things.. Its great as is too!
yeah, that is a good suggestion! I'll keep that in mind if I ever try to use those elements again.
Hi Carol, thanks so much for your comments. You are so right. Wish I could change but too late. I appreciate your time!
Hi Carol! Thank you for your comment on my art print. Really appreciate it....So happy to be part of Minted community :)
Hi friend Carol! Thanks so much for helping me with my elaborate 'A new home for Christmas' design! I appreciate it so much - please let me know what you think about the changes? Phrosx (http://www.minted.com/design-rating/85371)
Thanks for the sweet comment on my block of joy. Its actually a font i manipulated.. My couch and wine arent that awesome.. Flowers still defeat me:)
Hey ladybug - how are you? Thanks for the comment. I think you are right. A little breathing room. It's been a busy few months w my own work, website, life ... hope you are keeping well : )
I know exactly how you feel - and it's amazing how tiny little tweaks make such a huge difference. :)
hey Carol! Thanks so much for the feedback on my drum design. I tried a few different fonts, including Hitchcock but not sure I've found "the one"... what do you think? Thanks. :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/84961
Thanks for the awesome feedback on my rustic wreath design, Carol! Always here if you need someone to take a look at something! I'm not as experienced but at least a 2nd set of design-loving eyes :).
Carol, thank you so much for your really helpful feedback! I knew the design wasn't resolved, but I couldn't see what needed to be changed, so you really helped me : ) Do you mind looking at it again, and be honest if I went overboard with the stars. Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/84150
hey Carol, Thanks so much for your comments on my rustic wreath design! Uploaded a couple versions... take a look if you get a minute! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/84052
Hi Carol! I think you could go either way with Holly Jolly. You could leave both banners and just put "Merry Christmas" or some other message in the top banner and leave the lower banner as is. Alternately, you could totally remove the banners, and just put "XO, The Richardsons" in the bottom right corner. Either way, it's a great design!
Thank you so much for your comments Carol - I have been agonizing over this one - it's one of those you see perfectly in your head but just never looks right when you do it. I hadn't thought to try vertical -- and those branches have been a struggle for me -- I'll give those suggestions a try. THANK YOU!!! :)
hey Carol, congrats on you save the date win :)
Thank you so much for the nice comment Carol. I was a busy time. I have now finally off and so I glad to see you to,... all of you. It's like back to the family :-)
Hey Carol, Congrats on your STD win. You had a bunch of good ones.
Thank you so much for your sweet note Carol !
Thanks so much for the nice comment Carol - I was stepping a bit out of my element with the colors so I really appreciate the feedback
Carol, thanks for your nice comment! Your personalized stationery is super cute!
Carol, Thank you for your comments on Just Born. I really appreciate all the feedback as a new designer. I will definitely take these into consideration in my next design.
Thanks Carol for the comment on my Salt Water Taffy design. Wish it wasn't too late to change from your recommendations. Chris
Thanks my friend!
Carol, thanks so much for your helpful comment! I'm still not in love with my design, but I wanted to force myself to do something less tailored ; )
Carol, Thank you for such a nice comment!!
I really appreciate it!
Thanks Carol for the great comment! God bless you always!
Hi Carol- thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my sleepy owl design. I've made some of the changes you suggested. If you have a chance and can let me know what you think...I'd really appreciate it. Oh, and no worries on the long post. I love the way designers in this community seem to really care. thanks again! lisa
Thank you so much, Carol!!
Thanks for the sweet comment on vintage hats - it was a bit of a whim for me so I wasn't sure if it would work. I really appreciate it! :)
Hi Carol - thanks for all the nice comments, always much appreciated :)
Aaw thank you - and haha so funny! miss you too - the memory almost like a dream! xx
Thanks Carol for your comment on Fantasy Baby and your "likes." I am new to minted and every comment and like is like a present! Love your work. Chris Griffith
Carol- thanks for your suggestions! I made the tweaks for both designs (Harrison Twins and Baby Makes Three). Definitely makes a difference I think if you would like to take a look again. Unfortunately, the Baby Makes Three design was added at the last minute so I didn't have too much time to look back at it again and tweak during submission.
Carol - thanks so much for the comment on my Sew Perfect submission. I really appreciate it! The same stitching throughout wasn't working so well, but I darkened up the blue a bit, so hopefully the type is easier to read now!
Carol! Thank you so much for the very sweet comment on my butterfly garden design... I am honored! Happy Friday! :)
Thanks for your awesome comment on my little boy blue design, he's one of my favs and I always appreciate your words, made my day :)
Hey, Carol! Thanks so much for your feedback on this one - hopefully it now new AND improved. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/77989
Thanks for you note Carol, and also thank you for always giving advise. Big soft spot for you!
Don't skip your small round photo design just because I have one entered - I'd love to see your design!
Thanks for the comment, Carol - I really appreciate it. I know you have some EPs coming bc you had some really perfect designs in the challenge :)
Thank you, Carol! And please, please don't call it quits! You have been so incredibly helpful to me and so many others. You have fantastic ideas and a keen eye. You would be missed more than you know.
Carol, I read your facebook comment about calling it a day. Please do not leave this community. You are an integral part of my experience here and I feel like you are a friend. I would be very sad.
Thanks for the suggestion on the art print, Carol - you always have such great input and a good critical eye :)
sorry for my late thank you :)

Hey Carol - It's just myriad. I was planning to change it to something else but kind of liked it. :)
Hey Carol! I posted a couple options for my sunny day design... Would you mind taking a look when you have a minute? Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/73040
Thanks Carol! It's exciting to finally get another one...now if only my first one would go on sale! ;)
Hello Carol! Thanks for your comment on my 'Oh, Deer' submission. Appreciate your specific reference to the scope. Thanks for taking the time; your words definitely resonated with me. P.S. - Awesome stuff here!
Thanks Carol! Took a few months "off" - way too many garden/house projects going on and a bit of travel. Shutting the door and gearing up for a long winter. Nice to see a few wins for you!!
Hi Carol. Thanks so much for your kind comments... I think the admiration is on both sides :-) Can you feel, how change yourself in designing? I feel a great change from cooperation with Minted. Your work is better and better. I wish you winning.
Thanks for the wonderful comment, Carol! It really means a lot! :)
Carol..congrats on your new yr editor's pick...great work..love the card :)
Carol! Thank you! Can't thank you enough for your helpful advice. You're the best!
Thanks so much, Carol! I really appreciate it.
Hey Carol, I would love to see Phillie through your eyes! We definitely need to meet for lunch or saturday sometime soon : ) I feel like I don't tell you enough, but I love the great feedback and comments you leave on my designs and so many others. You don't just leave the generic "love it" crap (which I'm guilty of!) but you write the most thoughtful, attentive comments which show you are critically looking at the designs - the hallmark of a great Art director! So just wanted to say thanks, because I appreciate your great feedback. So let's either get a Phila meetup going sometime, or else we can crash the VA/DC meetup! : ) Take care~ Jen
Hi Carol - Thanks so much for your kind commments...they mean a lot! ~Kathy
Thanks Carol! You give such specific and genuine feedback, I really appreciate it! Phros
carol - thanks for taking the time to critique my "hot off the press" submission.. you hit the nail on the head. I really appreciate it!
Hi Carol, Thank you for your comment on my design. I tried a horizontal version and liked it a lot more! It's great to meet you and thank you! Nikki
Thanks Carol! - I was just thinking that it was looking maybe a bit too messy when I used the brushstrokes on that colour palette idea. But I may switch back.
Carol, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my 'Matrimonio' design. Very encouraging! Your comment is exactly describing what I was trying to create! ;) Phrosne
Thanks for the great advice on my birds/bells design. You were right!
Thanks for the nice comments Carol! If you get a minute, would you mind looking at this design: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/71127?filter=all&sort=designer Wondering about the script color. Thanks!! :)
Carol - I' ve been meaning to thank you for several days now for your comment on my 'central park' invite. I really appreciated your comment - it's hard for me to know sometimes if i'm going in the right direction. Thank you so much! By the way, you are really kickin' it in this challenge - I love the textures you are adding to your pieces and your font treatments - you will have many wins in this one! :)
Hi Carol! Just wanted to say you are really killin' it in this challenge! All your designs are gorgeous and unique. My fave is your retro romance. :) Thanks for the help on my designs. You definitely deserve a cut if my seaside stripes happens to get a pick :).
Carol, if we could format in this comment block Id say THANKS in 100pt!
