Hi Lehan! I actually asked Minted about this and Rose said to submit my design to the challenge. So if you could please delete your comment I would appreciate it. I don't want anyone to read it and think that something is wrong with entering my design and then vote it lower. Thanks.

Thank you again, Lehan for your helpful comment! I thought they might be able to trap the letterpress area, but I guess that would be tricky in case the plates shifted. I took another look at the example they suggested and I didn't realize the top of the design had a gradient too. Thanks again for your help!

Thank you for your helpful comment, Lehan! I realized that right after I uploaded it. I just updated it with a different photo with the gradient. Thanks again for your insight!

Hi Lehan! Thanks for the great feedback! I have such a hard time pairing fonts. :-/ I feel that my font library is lacking some of the most basic fonts so I've been searching online for them and added the ones you suggested. I'm still playing around with different ones and I hope I can get it right! I've also started looking more at some winning designs to see what works well (and sells!) and it's definitely helping. Thanks again for your invaluable suggestions!!!

Hi Lehan! I just realized "La Vie en Rose" is a bit similar to your "Dramatic Winter Floral" with the black background and flower integration, I truly had forgotten seeing that design before. I will remove it altogether if you'd like or modify it so that it's different if you are at all uncomfortable, I do not want you to see it as a copy of your design, so please let me know what you think!

No worries at all Lehan! That's why I didn't post it in the comments - I never want take away good energy from an already perfect design with a subjective suggestion. :) And I don't think I'll be able to whip-up a decent gingerbread house illustration, or a burnt one - that's funny. Maybe next year! I thought of it as we were traveling yesterday and knew it wasn't going to happen. I just enjoyed seeing that we sorta think alike. :) Have a great day & week ahead!

Hi Lehan- Thank you so much for your feedback on the Budmo. You confirmed my suspicion. If you get a chance, would you please take a look and see if it's better now? I also lightened up the background. I thought it was a little depressing for a baby's room. I really appreciate your feedback!!!

Hi Lehan, It was just brought to my attention that a design I entered into the current birthday challenge was very similar to one of your designs. After taking a look, I immediately removed mine from the competition. I am so sorry and hope that you aren't offended. I truely had no idea & feel awful. I was actually focused on texture & creating a layout that wasn't too predictable. Boy, did that go wrong! :) My original sketch had the title text above an angled pattern and throughout the process, I changed it to a knockout. I sincerely had no idea I was designing something so similar to yours. Again, I'm sorry.

Hi, I worked really late on this design last night like two in the morning. It's been brought to my attention I apparently was dreaming about one of your designs. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/44796 this is my design. I can't delete it because of voting but I am emailing minted to take it out. I just wanted to give you the heads up on how ridiculous I am.

Thank you so much, Lehan! You're so sweet! And btw, I think you're incredibly talented and amazing, too! Congratulations on all your wins and editor's picks, too - in the holiday challenge and children's stationery challenge! I know you'll have more wins, too, when the wedding challenge is through. Your entries are terrific! Hope you and baby are doing well! :)

Lehan, your sweet note was the nicest message to wake up to today, so thank you, thank you!! I adore your style! You can go from romantic and feminine to fun to modern, and they all look amazing : ) I still don't know how you are able to design with a newborn - you deserve an award just for that : D Thanks again for making my day!

Lehan - I just submitted a design to the Head over Heels challenge, "Portrait," but then looked through Save the Date Photo cards already for sale to make sure my design wasn't too similar to any of them. I noticed your "Simply See Through" design, which uses the same Bebas font and the even the same couple - is this too similar? I certainly do not want to appear to have copied yours, and am certainly happy to remove it, if you think they are too similar. You can email me at kim@knotes-style.com, if you like. Thanks and congrats on your growing family! Kim

Hi Lehan! Congratulations!! I read in the forum that you just had a baby! I have two little ones, so I know what a blessing children are. I'm soooo happy for you!!! Take care + God bless + be sure to get some rest :)

Well...drat! I saw that info in the forum, too, which is why I was so surprised to see that you had revamped it for the mini-book challenge. I was so sure it would have been chosen for the holiday challenge!

Hi Lehan,I noticed your lovely "Peace" entry in the latest challenge and was more than a little surprised. Does that mean that it wasn't picked up for the holiday challenge?!! It was definitely in my top 5.

Thank you so much for your comment on my snowmen :) Your work is awesome - you have some amazing talent! I noticed on your profile that you're an attorney so I wanted to say "hi" from another member of the Bar :) (although I haven't practiced for several years now - I didn't go back after our second child was born). Thanks again and all the best in this challenge - your submissions are fantastic :)

It was a violation of Minted's terms since my Reindog is already for sale on their site. Oops!!
