After I graduated college with an associates degree in graphic design for print and web I happened upon stationery design by chance through minted. It has been three years since I designed and sold my first piece of stationery and I have not looked back.

Hi Samantha, Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your wonderful help with my Fir Branches wreath. I still need to make some minor tweaks but I'm much happier with it now after making it horizontal. :) I really love your work and look forward to seeing more if it!
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave kind words and for catching my spacing goof - I'll fix it soon : ) It means a lot to me - I admire your work!
Hi Samantha. Thank you very much for your critique and comment on 'Winter Pine'. I changed it up quite a bit and would love for your input on the new direction if you had a moment. Thanks again!
Thanks so much Samantha!! Your compliments means a lot to me, and I want to thank you for what you said in the Rifle paper post. I wanted to write something, but you and a few others said it best! I'm so thankful to have great Minties like you in my corner ; ) Best wishes as you get ready for the NSS. I know your booth will look fabulous and I hope your business flourishes as a result : ) We'll be cheering you and Meg on!
Hey Samantha, thank you so much for the sweet comment on my hand writing!! That just made my day! I'm excited you will be exhibiting at the NSS. I look forward to meeting you and best wishes getting ready for the show : )
Thanks for your sweet comment on Triangulating!
Samantha: thanks for the advice, I uploaded an alternate version, I can't really decide.
Congrats on your first top-twenty, Samantha - LOVE Delightfully Dark!
Thanks for letting me know about the design, Samantha.
Thanks for your sweet comment! I know how you feel about the font envy ;) Carolyna was my christmas present to myself this year. It was so hard to choose just one though-there are so many I'm drooling over right now! lol
Hey, I've made the rev to my native american spirit based on yours and Cecile's comments. Can you take a look and let me know what you think now if you have a change. Thx.
Samantha, I love the feeling I have when I look at your designs. It's as if I can breathe in happiness! I love your work, for this challenge especially Tropicana. Good luck!
Thanks Samantha for your kind words, it really means a lot! :)
Thanks for your comments on my Farm Fresh Fun design. Always helps to have another pair of eyes check things out. I made the changes and think it works much better.
whoa, that text block i just created below looks so whacked! is it crazy that it bothers me? :)
Hi Samantha! I read in the forum that you just recently had a baby! CONGRATULATIONS!!! So happy for you!!! I read that you were having a creative block - well, you would never know, looking at your beautiful designs! Well, take care + keep up the great work . . .and get some rest, too :)
Samantha, Thank you for taking the time to give such awesome advice. Please let me know if you see anything else. It's much appreciated.
Samantha, Thank you for sharing on the forum. I love the name Moë & Me! x Brandy
Thank you for your comment on my submission! :)
Thank you for your response; Ive been thinking about you and just wanted to apologize. As my husband can attest, I say the first thing that comes to mind without considering how it will come across. You have a great design and I dont think you need to change a thing. If there is a way for you to remove my other comment please do and I will format a better, clearer comment ;)
I'm sorry I love your design; I didn't mean to offend you; I've just had that other one in my mind and the layout and text were similar.
Thanks so much for your helpful suggestions! Love your designs!
Just saw that you are waiting for your 3rd. . . good luck and make sure to take some "me" time. I've got two boys (3 and 5) and am sticking there, thank you very much. :)
thx so much oba for your comment on greetings from (AU)! we looked at removing the lines, and agreed, it's more clear that way when interpreted literally as a map/location. thx agn for your helpful suggestion!!
Just wanted to say a big congrats on your pregnancy too! :) I feel like I've been pregnant forever and now I can't believe it's here. lol We're having our first and it's a little girl. Take care! Best of luck in the holiday competition. I'm thinking I'm going to have to sit this one out... :-P
thanks for your comments on my speckled egg card!
Thank you so much for the feedback on "Runneth Over" - I hope my new version is an improvement!
You have a natural ability to design and an artistic talent that is new and refreshing, your choices of colors,images and fonts are inspiring to others
thanks for your suggestion. i think it looks better now. do you think the 2 purple flowers below the big light blue one look ok? or is the one below the big flower look funny? thanks!
Thanks for the feedback. I was considering removing the lace.
Thanks for the positive feedback Samantha! Your entries are looking good :)
I love all of your designs. You have such a natural gift of coordinating colors, and balancing images with text. I would love to know where I can purchase some of these?
Hi Sam. The more you can put out there, the more chances some designs will be similar to others. Just remember that colors reflect seasons and the law of thirds for image cropping and placement.
Hi Samantha. I like your sweet flower linen but it reminding me of this design already for sale - http://www.minted.com/customizer/sku/MIN-SL1-INV. I would just change up the colors a bit. =D
