Congratulations, Jill!! Such a pretty design!
Many many congrats Jill!! So happy to see you win this!!
Thanks, Jill for noticing the "typo". I can't believe I made such a bone-headed mistake!!!
Hi Jill, thank you for the like. Best of luck in the challenges!
Hi Jill, Thanks for your helpful comments on my submissions, best of luck in the challenges! Your design work is very sophisticated!
Hi Jill, Thank you for the like on Wild Pacific! You have some gorgeous designs! Best of luck!
Thank you so much for your like on my San Francisco Souvenir bag.
You have wonderful designs and I am inspired to discover your website.
thanks for the like Jill. All the best to you as well.
Thanks for the like on my "Christmas Every Day" design. I love your work! Thanks for helping me with my frantic, last-minute, detail-agonizing :)
I'm no help at all either - totally torn :) Honestly I would replace the rejoice night sky with the red one and keep your original - I think it's the least strong of all your submissions - not that it isn't also gorgeous.
Thank you thank you for the comment on my Glory to God design - I switched it to an uppercase E! I appreciate the feedback!
Thanks for the good feedback on my book design Jill. I changed it up and made it faux foil. Better? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/546136
Hi Jill, thank you for clever the suggestion on BIG REVEAL. I like it and will give a go. There are so many cute designs submitted I may just take it down, but thanks so much for the idea! Good luck to you!
Thank you for your feedback on my design! Honestly, I thought the balloons looked a little "off" too ;) Thank you again, it helps to hear someone else was thinking the same thing!
Thanks for letting me know of my spelling error! I kept staring and staring at it trying to figure out what looked wrong!
Thanks so much, Jill!
Hi Jill, I hear from Tanya Lee that you started the Minted section on Pinterest? Can I possibly join this group? I couldn't figure out a way to message you on Pinterest. I'm hopelessly electronically challenged!
Jill, Thank you so much for your constructive comments on my Berry Arrow design, I am on the hunt for the perfect ampersand :) I think I have looked at this particular design for way too long, so your honest opinion is so helpful! Thank you for taking the time to comment, you are one of my faves so I am honored. Cheers!
Good call Jill! Thank you for the feedback. I changed it so if you get a chance see what you think. Thanks again.
Hi Jill - I wanted to thank you for your lovely Valentine's card! Hope you will be at NSS this year, would love to see you again, best, L
Congrats on your wins Jill :) Thankyou for your keen eye & pointing out details in my Regal design, hadn't you noticed it,it wouldn't have won! Thanks again!
saw* and won* - someone's tired ;)
Jill, holy crap...Watercolor Florals is amazing! Just say that it one a special award. Congrats!!
Thank you so much for your reply! That definitely makes sense! No wonder the watercolor looked so much like real watercolor. Thank you again!
Hi Jill! I was looking back over winners from the "Just my type, valentines day" challenge, and I was wondering how you created the watercolor effect on the fish bowl design. It looks lovely, just wanting to learn in whatever way possible. Thank you!
Congrats on the Valentine's win Jill! Love the fish bowl.
You're so welcome Jill :) I don't know if you've seen your fabric in person, but it's so gorgeous! It looked great with the frame, too. I always love your work!
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!!!
Hi Jill, Thanks for your help with the Digital Invitation comp. I was in the middle of fixing it (and it looks a whole lot better) when I saw the email that voting had begun! Ooops. Anyway, thanks again. :)
Jill, thanks so much for your extra super constructive comment (I would mark that if I could) on my Potluck design. Much appreciated! I'm on the hunt to see if there's another c that will work better.
Thanks Jill. I will simplify the glyphs. :) I really appreciate the advice. Looking at it after your feedback; you are so right and it is way over flourished. Sometimes when working on something for a while you miss these important points. Thanks again.
Thankyou for your feedback on my "Regal" design :)
Hey, by the way your work is awesome. Monica:)
Hi Jill, thank you for your suggestion on my leaf design .Am having a hard time with the type and good legibility but am trying another version
Thanks for the comment, Jill. Funny that there was just talk about unique phrasing...I didn't even think about or realize that that might be unique. Yay. ;)
I appreciate the great feedback, Jill. thanks a bunch!
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!
Thanks Jill sometimes the most simple things is not what comes to mind and i thank you for that. I love your designs so much they are beautiful
Thank you so much Jill!
Thanks for your great input on using the tag die-cut :)
Hi Jill, you are great with feedback. When you have a minute I would appreciate yours on this design: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/167581 Thanks!
Jill, thank you so much for taking the time to make some suggestions about by design! I made some changes and have a poll started.
Hi Jill, it was nice to visit with you at Barrique the other night. Hope you enjoyed your visit to SF.
thank you so much for your feedback on my submission, "bright." i've updated the design in hopes it looks stronger! thank you again Jill - i really appreciate it!
Hi there Jill thanks for the critique work in progress. It is nice to get the feed back always. Send me your polls to.
Hi Jill!! Thank you so very much for the amazing super constructive critique! You have such a good eye and I really loved your suggestions. I have made a few adjustments and would love to know what you think if you have a second. Thank you so much again for taking the time to stop and give a little feedback on my design :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/170079
Hi. Jill--thanks so much for your suggestion on removing the second lamb from my nativity. I do think that helped! If you get a chance, stop by and let me know how you like it :)
Jill, thanks so much for your feedback on my deer design,i really appreciate your advice..i was playing with that design all day trying to get it to feel right. I like your idea of making it two separate designs! I think that is a great idea...less is more will probably help a lot.
Thanks for your advice on my Neon Strokes design. I changed over to Futura and also tightened up the line spacing. I think it helped a bit!
Hi Jill, thanks so much for your thoughtful comment on my vintage mill invite. I really appreciate it. I lightened the green slightly and went with Penelope Poppies suggestion of making both elements gold. What do you think of the new green (better)? If you have a free moment. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/126127
Thanks so much for the feedback on my Gilt design, Jill- I really appreciate it!
Hi Jill! Love your Play Ball submission! Just wanted to let you know I am working on something along the same lines and didn't want you to think I'm copying! :) Just purchased a font (from my FB post) for this very idea. It may not come to fruition but wanted to give you a heads up. ;)
Great suggestion on my "doubled love" submission. . I needed a fresh pair of eyes to review it. Appreciate your advice Jill, thanks!
"understated genius" may be my best Minted compliment ever :) Thanks!
Thanks Jill for coming back and I will definitely take your advice about the wording :)
Hey Jill! Thanks so much for your comment on my Sail Away design. I really value your opinion as I love your work. I've made some changes and would love to know what you think if you have a moment :)
Thank you so much for your comment, Jill -- made my day!
I'm so glad you mentioned that! When I looked at that design again with fresh eyes, I felt that it needed some of the letters to break through the grid, so I'm glad you thought the same way. Not that you need it, with the beautiful selection of holiday designs you've submitted, but best of luck in this challenge!
Thanks for the note, Jill! Yes, I do feel the same way, but I still wanted to be sensitive to you and your design so I figured I'd check with you directly just to make sure.
Oops ... wanted to check in with you to make sure it didn't seem like I was copying.
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. :)
Hi Jill, thanks so much for your feedback on my invite. Would love your thoughts on the changes! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/90678?filter=all&sort=createat
Hello Jill! Thank you so much for your feedback. I totally agree the ribbon should add a pop of color so I tested both suggestions and the blue option ended up great! Please let me know what you think now: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/88407
I have also made the decoration flags for it so if you want to take a look, here it is: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/88059
Thanks for your comment and suggestion. I took your advice and modified the wording :)
Jill, thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it. Faith
Hi Jill, thanks for all your feedback. Much appreciated from someone I admire a lot! I was wondering if you had some time to look at the Cupcake design again and let me know what you think.
Thanks again. Smeeta
Jeez…thanks so much for catching those mistakes and for your comments!
Thank you for catching my spelling error!!! I am notorious for spelling something wrong and not seeing it, even after proofreading :)
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! Monica http://www.minted.com/design-rating/76045
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, Thanks for the feedback on my storybook design. I've posted two alternate monogram treatments. If you have time, I'd love your input. Thanks. S
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!
you are so nice and no! I'm betting you don't either...love your entries. ready for this challenge to be over so life can return to normal. Just dropped a pot of boiling water on my legs and stomach so after I submit the next and last design I am done!!! yikes- obviously need some sleep.
thanks for your help with the spelling- that was embarrassing!
Thank you Jill for your help on "heart noel" - I will tinker with it tonight!
Thanks, Jill, for your feedback on my design. I enlarged the photo so, hopefully, it looks better! I appreciate your comments!
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! Thank you very much for the beautiful card you send, god bless your family always.
