Hi! I'm Ling. I love subtle but beautiful + clever details in designs and strive to bring those qualities to the things I create. A touch of whimsy doesn't hurt either ;)

Thank you Ling for liking "The Light at Point Montara". Best of luck in your future success with Minted!
Hello Ling :) Thanks for all the likes and comments on my designs. <3 I shifted my Three Kings design over to a foil version with a poll running on color options! Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/620928 Also, I took your advice on the Christmas Tree design and moved the candy cane angles around and reduced the negative space a little! Thank you for the helpful feedback!
Hello! Thanks for the sweet comment on the bird/botanical design I submitted earlier today. I was actually a little apprehensive about doing such a illustrative piece. Appreciate your feedback, it's really encouraging so thank you so much!!
Hi Ling, thanks for liking my entry "Mistletoe Frame", appreciate the support :)
Hi Ling, thank you for your feedback on Gratitude. I appreciate your time and thoughtful note! : )
Thanks for the help and suggestions with my Peace on Earth design - it was a FABULOUS suggestion and I appreciate you taking the time to help and comment! Good luck with the holiday challenges!!
Thank you so much for the like Ling!! :)
Ling, thank you so much for the like. Just looked at your work ... Love your designs. Good luck in the challenge.
Hello! I gave up on the inverse botanical idea as I would need to redraw everything in a more dense pattern to make it work. At the moment it's not very legible :D I loved the idea though so thank you for suggesting it and I will try to incorporate that into the non-photo card challenge. Thanks so much for all your feedback! :))
Thank you Ling for the likes! :) Good luck in the challenge!
Hi Ling, thank you so much for taking the time to give me some helpful comments on my holiday submissions. I really appreciate it and your comments were VERY helpful. I am taking a look at your work now (it's been so crazy lately and I have not had as much time for this challenge as I would have liked) and your work is GORGEOUS! Thanks again and good luck!! Monica :)
Hello! :) I'm still working on the botanical idea you suggested but I'm not able to make it look pretty so far so I may end up sticking to what's already there. heh, thanks for checking in. Still working on it! BTW, I know you literally just voted on my photo poll but I forgot to put a color photo version in my comments (just did) - curious to see if you like the color version? I really want a B&W photo though but I thought I should get some additional feedback. Thanks!
Thanks so much for the like Ling. You have a beautiful clean aesthetic to your work! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the non-photo holiday challenge :)
Ling! Thank you SO MUCH for commenting and liking so many of my designs for the holiday photo card challenge. I'm really intrigued with your ideas for the botanical watercolor Peace submission so I will be trying it out :)
Ling, you are so sweet! I'm certainly no expert and you could definitely accomplish a multi-photo layout :) Good luck!!
Hello Ling! Thank you so much for your constructive comments, they are truly helpful!
Hi Ling! Thank you so much for suggesting the change on my design - good eye!! :)
Ling, I appreciate your nice note. You have such a fun artistic spirit! I look forward to seeing what you will come up with. : )
Thanks for all your feedback and the likes lately. I appreciate it so much!
You're very welcome! It's crazy the things we get attached to as designers ;) Love all your submissions for the holiday challenge! Best of luck!
Hi Lily, The navy colour change was worth the try. The geometric may be a overwhelming the photo and perhaps scaling it down could help.
Hi Ling, It is even more impressive that you drew the glyph and yes, that is totally acceptable to do!! Best of luck! : )
Hi again! Thanks for the comment on the Wonderful Time design! You have a sharp eye - I was going to fix that floor line up but after fiddling it for 10 times I forgot at the very end. LOL. Have now lined the floor up in all 3 photos! I created a poll as I'm still not sure if I wanted two lines of text or just one.
Hi Ling, thanks for the likes and feedback on my holiday submissions. Your comment about the full bleed photo on the "Snowflake Frame" design made me chuckle! :D I think I probably should have cropped the photo a slightly different view as her sweater does look like it blends into the background :D
Hi Ling, Thank you so much for the likes on my birth announcement designs :) Good luck with all your beautiful submissions!
Thank you so much for the likes and helpful comment on my birth announcement entries, Ling! I truly appreciate it. You have a beautiful collection here! Best of luck!
SO glad the idea worked on your butterfly design! My only other thought was to maybe scale back the butterflies a bit so the name has some breathing room and possibly play with some of the details (on the butterflies) and foil them! Not sure how it would look but I thought it was worth trying :)
thanks for the like for tailored to fit
thanks so much Ling for the like all the best in the challenges also.
Hi Ling, Thanks so much for your Like on Little Dolls and Their Dreams! I truly appreciate your support!
Hi Ling. Thank you for your sweet comment on my "holiday foliage" card. Best of luck to you...love your entries!
Ling, that's exactly what was bugging me with that version re the scale of the leaves. making it smaller against Aloha didn't look right, but I can try again and then try a chevron too an see what that brings. thanks!
Miss Ling, you rock! Thank you, thank you for your awesome guidance.
Oh, Ling, thank you very much for your kind words!
Thank you Ling for your super sweet comment!
Ling... Sorry about the typo.
Hi Ling, I understand what you are saying, I'm just not sure they wanted something where letterpress exactly butted up against a digital registration. Might want to check to clarify. I do prefer A, so if it works out you can that would be great!
Lung... Thanks for the advice! When I put that flag at the top I was struggling with it. I felt like it needed something to bring your eye in... But you're right. It's just rather confusing. When I get back to the computer I'm going to take it out. Thank you!! Btw love your work...beautiful.
Hi Ling thank you very much for your nice and constructive comment! I appreciate it so much!
thanks for the likes, Ling. Love how delicate your style is! Good luck with the challenge!
Thank you for liking my submission! Best of luck with the challenge!
Thank you for the likes, Ling! Best of luck to you in the holiday challenge!

Hi Ling thank you so much for the likes!! I just love your Season's Eatings!
Hi Ling, thanks so much for the likes! Your Season's Eatings and Newborn Kisses are so great! Best of luck!
Hi Ling, thanks for the like on my submission! I love your beautiful and minimalist design.
Hi Ling! Thanks for the great feedback on my design! It's super helpful and I really appreciate it!
Hi Ling! thanks for your compliments! I haven't yet had a chance to see your other bi-lingual invites. I'm sure having to add twice the text makes it super complicated. the double happiness one really is nice!
Thanks for the grammar catch on my wedding invite!
Thanks for your comment Ling. If I win, I will fix what you noticed, good luck!
