Jill, thank you so much for the heads up on the foil edge- I had no idea! I guess I'll cross that bridge if I get to it, but that's definitely a guideline that I wish was mentioned in the submission kits...Oh well, thanks again for the info and best of luck, you have so many beautiful entries- I think it's going to be a great wedding challenge for you :)

Thanks so much for your feedback on my 'Embellished' design, Jill- I really appreciate it! I love the elegant look but struggle so hard with not overdoing things when I try my hand at this style. Your entries are gorgeous- can't wait to see what else you come up with :) Thanks again- I'm off to keep tweaking it! xo, Laura

I had not read the special award details - thank you for the heads up! The design just doesn't work with two initials (I've tried because I know they sell better). I guess, maybe I should just delete it. Regardless, please know that your comments and suggestions are appreciated!!! I wasn't ignoring your advice, it just doesn't work with this design.

Hi, Jill! Thanks for your feedback on my design. I think double initials sell better, but, according to wedding etiquette I've read, a single initial (from the husband's last name) monogram is appropriate, but the couple's monogram (both first initials, with married last initial) is not. Minted actually has a couple of single initial monograms and couple's monograms for sale. I just assumed single sell better...either way that design concept really only works with the one initial and it scored well with consumers lat year, so I thought I'd give it one more try! Thanks for the advice, though!!!

Thanks, Jill for your comment. A question, though if you don't mind! When you say the blue band is competing w/ the wreath, do you mean the little blue band at the top, or the whole blue part? With just a solid color background the card didn't have enough going on. If you meant the whole blue part/background, not just the little one at the top, do you have any suggestions for me what else I should do? Thanks!

Hi Jill! I just realized that I had a somewhat similar concept to your Naughty plus Nice design (my Calm And Bright design), but with a different saying/take on the photos and with a layout more similar to one of my existing graduation announcements. I just wanted to check in with you to make sure it didn't seem like I wasn't copying your concept or anything. I definitely don't want to be "that" designer. :)

Thanks so much, Jill - it has been such a big surprise, I have hardly been able to catch my breath! I'll probably be on cloud 9 for the next month :)

Thanks Jill! All great ideas. I've been hitting a wall this challenge. Hopefully will tune up the design before the deadline. Really really appreciate your very helpful feedback!

Hi Jill, I prefer the version with the save the date too... thanks for the suggestion. I worked on the type a bit and posted two more options... if you get a chance, please let me know which you prefer. Thanks! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/76045

Hey Jill! Thanks so much for the feedback on my amelia floral design. I posted a couple more options based on your feedback. If you get a chance, let me know if you think either option is better than the one you commented on. Open to other suggestions as well. :) Thanks Jill!

Jill, I really appreciate your feedback on my vintage ampersand! If you have a chance, can you check the design I uploaded below the main one to see if that is what you meant by centering the names with the ampersand? Thanks so much! ~ Jen

Hi Jill! Thank you so, so much for your comment on my design "The Tree Line." I'm not sure exactly what you mean with your suggestion about the colors - would you mind elaborating?

Thanks for the sweet comment on "Orange You Glad It's Christmas". I was really happy with it - picked or not picked. But the fact that you took notice meant a lot, Jill!

Hi Jill! Thanks for the suggestion on my t-shirt design. Do you think it would be too much info if I add the countries stat?

Hi, Jill! I've been meaning to stop by and tell you that I love your new profile pic...and, then, today, I received your Valentine card in the mail - what a great looking family you all are! I love your striped card and matching label, and that pearl paper is so perfect for it. Thank you and Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!
