Hi I'm Giselle, cake lover and paper enthusiastic. I've always been creative but discovered my passion for stationery in 2010 while making handmade valentine cards for my loved ones. Since then I breath and love design. I'm so grateful for the minted community because I learn so much while doing what I love most.

Hi Giselle, Thanks so much for taking the time to make comments on my designs. I so appreciate it. Your work has been fabulous and you're getting the wins to prove it. Congrats. Love your new pic too.
Thank you for the really nice comment.
Giselle, thanks for your feedback on my Come Dance with Me entry. I so appreciate your time. :) I tried the horizontal and have an image for you to see underneath the entry. What do you think? Stay with what i have or change?
Thanks for your kind words! Means a lot.
Giselle, it is always hardest to see your own perspective and easy to notice in other's work. That is why Minted is so much fun. Don't know if i will ever get to the fantastic work you do, but it is a great adventure and very addictive. :) Chris
Thanks Giselle! Congrats to you too. So glad you are finally getting the wins and picks you so deserve! :)
Big Congrats on your win Giselle!!!
Giselle, you've been doing such awesome work! Beautiful submissions.
Thanks for your input on the colors for Snowburst, Giselle! If you don't mind taking a look again - since the challenge was extended I had some time to fine-tune the design and color options, and am wondering which you think would be best to keep up for voting? Thanks so much :)
It looks wonderful!! Your illustrations are just beyond cute :)
hey Giselle! Would you mind taking a look at my latest design when you have a moment? I have several options posted in the comments. Thx so much & only if you have time of course :). http://www.minted.com/design-rating/85297
Thank you so much for the color feedback on my "cabin greeting" design I have a few options if you have a sec would love to know which one you like the best :)
Hi Giselle! Just wanted to tell you I am so impressed with all your designs in these holiday challenges. I just love your illustrations, colors, everything! Good luck! :)
Hi Giselle. Thank you so much for the nice comments and suggestion on my polar bear design. I scaled it down a bit...and I think it really helped the type. If you have a sec, can you see what you think? So appreciate it! x lisa
Hi Giselle! I think with holiday some ideas are bound to overlap because we are all using a limited visual vocabulary ie. snowflakes, santa, holly, etc - and looking at the other design, it's true that conceptually it is similar but stylistically it is extremely different. I really hope it works out because your design is just too cute! :)
Congrats on your minibook win! Thanks for all the helpful comments. Chris
Congrats on your minibook wins Giselle! Very happy for you... so well deserved! :)
hi giselle - congrats on your vintage race care win! that design was one of my favs in the challenge!!
Hey Giselle, thanks for all of the wonderful feedback on my holiday cards! & congrats to you on your minibook awards... Woohoo! :)
Big Congrats to a great designer! You had amazing designs in the Minibook Challenge!
Thanks Giselle for your helpful suggestion. I did bump up the size of the font and I think it looks better now. Thank goodness for an extra set of eyes!!
Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my Blooms Birthday Card design - I agree with you and changed the font so that it's more legible. Love your sweet illustrations, keep up the great work :)
Thanks Giselle! Your designs are beautiful. I am working on more stuff, but I have a day job and right now am at a conference in Canada so not much time for designing. Thanks again for the sweet note. I really appreciate it. Chris
Giselle, your comment really made my day - Thank you, thank you!! : )
thanks so much for your sweet comment, Giselle :) You're such a fabulous illustrator - you're an inspiration as well!!
Thank you Giselle! I took you recommendation and it does look much better. I appreciate your time and input. Chris
Giselle, I took your advice and I really like it! Tell me what you think if you have a moment. Again thanks so much! Chris
Giselle, thank you so much for the feedback! I am going to try exactly what you said. Stay tuned. :)
OMG I am loving all your minibooks! you have some wins there!
I am in love with all of your submissions. You pick beautiful palettes, and have a real eye for layout. You have some winners this challenge for sure!
Hi Giselle! Just wanted to say I am loving your illustrations and colors! I have always loved your designs but can see you are really growing as a designer. :)
Thanks Giselle. Your baby designs are so adorable - they would make adorable nursery prints!
Thanks for your comment as well Giselle. I am a new designer here. It seems addicting! Your illustrations are very sweet too. I especially love all of those little houses--you need to do something with them! :)
congrats on your party decor win!!
Yay Giselle! Big Congrats!
Congratulations on your party decor win Giselle! x
Thank you for your really nice comment Giselle!!
Hey Giselle! Thank you for the super sweet comment! LOVE your designs in this challenge!! Good luck :)
Hi Giselle. Thank you so much for your nice comments on my submission! It meant a lot. I really love your fox & lion up above...adorable & super sweet!!
Thanks for all of the wonderful comments, Giselle! :)
Thanks for the nice note, Giselle! :) Can't wait to see more of your beautiful designs. xx
Thanks so much Giselle!
Thanks so much Giselle! And congrats on your Lion Journal! Your calendars look awesome too! At least we won't have to wait forever for these results! ha! :)
Thank you so much for your nice comment on my calendar! Your fox is so sweet - i loved it so much in your party decor =)
I am excited for you. You deserved it!!
Thank you for your nice comments, Giselle! And congrats to you, too!
Thanks Giselle for your lovely comment. I am thrilled :)
I told you that you had some winning illustrations! CONGRATS on your Win! :)
Love the cherries you added. Your illustrations are always super cute. Really like your frames for both photos. This design is definitely a keeper. But I have to admit, I love the impact of the first layout, the large photo just grabs your attention. If you have time, how about designing a new fruit or use some of your cute flowers from your art submission. With a little color adjustment to them, you could submit that design also. Hope I helped.
Giselle, Thanks you so much you made my night. You are too too sweet :)
Aw, Giselle, you are really sweet! Thank you for the nice note... you made my day! I design when I should be doing other things! ha ha :)
Thanks for the kind comment, Giselle! :)
Thanks Giselle! Keep up the adorable designs :)
Hi Giselle :)
hmmm..Agree with Monica below. have you tried "save for web" under "file"? another thought might be that in these 2 places are there dots on top of each other? sometimes it will get weird on you when you are saving out in different options. try these 2 and see if it helps :) We will get it resolved!
hi Giselle, Happy to help if I can. Are you working in Illustrator? I think its the same either way. File, Save for Web then there is a little pull down menu where you can select "Maximum" and that changes quality to "100%". Have you done that?
thanks so much for your encouraging words, Giselle, truly appreciated!
Hi Giselle! Please let me know what you think about my changes? thanks so much! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/70363
Hi Giselle, Thanks so much for your sweet note and help on my juicy design. I played with the colors some... will u please let me know what you think when you get a moment? I really do value your opinion and so appreciate your help! :) Thanks!
Hey Giselle, When you get a minute, will you take another look at my Juicy design? Did I ruin it? Trying to make it less matchy... thanks sooo much! :)
Hi Giselle, Sorry for the late reply but you are welcome! I really LOVE your journal/stationery designs and hope you have a win in there!! :)
Giselle, thank you, thank you! Your sweet comment made my week : ) I'm really really hoping that your "I say things" journal wins because it is just darling. Best of luck!!
Thank you so much for your sweet note, Giselle - I'm flattered! :) Earlier versions of that design (I had so many versions, I deleted it and resubmitted!) did not have the border...and you are right, it looked like it was missing something! :)
