About Chryssi Tsoupanarias

With a background in both architecture and graphic design, I'm a self-proclaimed typography nerd with a weakness for fancy ampersands. I thoroughly enjoy polka dots, avocados, and photos of adorable baby sloths.

Thank you so much Chryssi! PS I'm pretty sure we are kindred spirits after reading your about me – ampersands, polka dots, avocados and baby sloths? I die!

Hi Chryssi, I love your ice cream party invite. I thought I should inform you,I have a few designs from last year which I want to revise & an ice-cream party is one of them. So please don't think I copied your concept :) Thanks.

Thanks so much for your suggestion on my "frenchie" design, Chryssi! I decided to go with your direction. The one line really helps keep the simplicity - thanks for lending your keen eye! :)

Hi Chryssi, thanks for your kind note. I'll give it some thought, but I may change the font so there's no confusion. Good luck to us both!

Hi Chryssi, Another designer brought to my attention that my VD design is a little similar to yours. I hadn't seen it. If it bothers you I will change it. What do you think? I thought it might be Ok since mine is for newlyweds. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/131651 Thanks, Carol

Thanks for the note, Chryssi! I think your "La Vie en Rose" has a different feel and enough of a different type layout that it's fine to have both your submission and mine in the challenge. Thanks for checking though! :)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my " Dear Santa " design. I making some other variations because I just discovered that another designer has submitted a design that has a similar concept. Hopefully I won't have to take mine down.

Chryssi, thank you so much for your sweet comment- congrats right back atcha for your win! I just noticed that last bit of your bio- I am OBSESSED with baby sloths, and consider it my life's work to save up enough money to hold one at a sloth sanctuary one day. :)
