Hi Sarah! Thank you for your feedback in the session today! Best of luck in the challenge!
Hi Sarah, thank you for the like on one of my holiday photo card submission. Appreciate the encouragement from a great designer like yourself! Love your work! :))
Hi Sarah, just saw Julep, Congrats on you Baby Shower awards! Love your design style!
Sarah, the type lockups on all of your designs have been so perfect and probably all took so much time! Love!
It's crazy how much just a few pixles can make an impact! Glad I was able to help out :)
Hi Sarah! Just read the "meet a minted artist" profile and want to thank you for sharing. Love your work space, you're an inspiration! : )
Such a great article on Julep, congrats on feature and always great to see designers from MI
Hi Sarah, Your baby shower submissions have consistently caught my eye for the excellent typographical styling. You work is always stellar but you seem to be in the zone with so many perfectly crafted submissions! : ) Best of luck!!
Thank you so much Sarah for your help in this Birth Announcement challenge. I've been uninspired & birth announcements always seem tricky,especially doing justice to those adorable babies. I especially wanted to let you know that I tried hard on working on my Dapper Dude design but I was stuck so I killed it! :( Thanks again for being so helpful. Your work is so lovely & your daughter is so very adorable :)
Thanks for the likes on my birth announcement submissions, Sarah! It truly made my day :)
Thanks so much for your helpful copy advice! The extra line makes all the difference and it means so much to me that you took the time to critique - thank you again!!
Congrats on your New Year's WIN!!! :)
Thank you for the wording tip on Merrily Ever After! I took your advice! Thank you!!!
Congrats on reaching 100! :)
Sarah I changed my design with your suggestions. If you have time let me know what you think. Thanks again!
Thanks Sarah for the idea on less contrast on the pattern for my baby design. I think that is spot on. Appreciate your time. Chris
thanks a lot helps me know what you like thanks so much for your support love some of your work very nicely executed
Thank you for your feedback on my design with the heart! I did actually try putting the ampersand inside the heart, but then chickened out on it. Haha. But your comment changed my mind! Thank you!
Thanks, Sarah! :)
Sarah, thank you so much for your comment on my " angelic proclamation " design. I did some changes, and I really like it :) Thanks again ;)
Thanks, Sarah! I thought so, but started to second guess it...like that SNL skit set in a nuclear power plant and the boss leaves instructions that "you can never have too much water" hehehe
Hey, Sarah! Thanks for your comment on my Happy Ever After design - I assume you mean the gold text on white, as submitted, right? (I had a white text on gold one in the comments). Thanks, again!!!
thank you Sarah! x
Congrats Sarah !!!!
hope you sell lots! :)
Big congrats Sarah. Three top twenties is pretty impressive. Well deserved :)
Thank you so much, Sarah! I'm still in shock. And congrats on your THREE wins and a pick - your work is amazing! I can't believe Retro Soiree didn't get a pick - I LOVE that one!
Congrats on your wins, Sarah! They're beautiful :)
Thanks so much for your nice comment on my Cocktail Party design, Sarah - I needed the reassurance! :)
Sure! Your solution was much better than what I suggested - not sure why I didn't think of that...anyway, it's a fabulous design, a winner for sure! Good luck!
Hi Sarah! Thanks for your feedback on my winter wreath design! Going to play with the fonts some more tonight. After reading yuor note, I was thinking Rockwell for the family name but not sure if it will be too much with the script font I am now going with for the Happy Holidays... we'll see. Anyway, thanks again.. your work is beautiful!
Thanks back at ya, Sarah!
Hi, Sarah! Just wanted to thank you for your holiday card - wonderful design, and I loved the kraft envelopes and all the coordinating details (like the striped washi tape and backer). You and your husband make a handsome couple - loved your photos! Much continued success to you and Belletristics in 2012!
Hi Sarah! Sorry so belated! I just wanted to thank you for your beautiful holiday card! Loved all the special details like the envelope line, washi tape, and gorgeously addressed envelope! It's been great getting to know you, here at Minted! I'm a big fan of your work! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and I pray your New Year is happy + prosperous!! God bless, and see ya around!! :)
Loved your peppermint stripes holiday card! Very cheery! Happy New Year!
Thanks for the holiday card. It's such a classic and beautiful design and your envelopes were gorgeous. Happy new year!
Hi Sarah, I worked on the hand drawn hearts last night but when comparing the 2 today I think the current hearts look more like a "check." Do you think that's important or handmade more so? Thanks again for commenting.
Merry Christmas, Sarah! So, I finally uploaded a "Big Day" design...
While I'm here, congrats on all your recent picks! I was hoping Colossal made it, though - I love that one!
You so sweet, Sarah! But, no, really, I was working on something, but never got it where I wanted it. Your fonts look great - that Cyclone is perfect! BTW, I have searched and searched for that Cyclone font and can never find it anywhere - do you remember who sells it? Thanks, again!
Thank you so much, Sarah!! And congrats to you on your editor's picks! I adore your Merriment design - it's so elegant and I love how the initials fit so perfectly within the vertical banner!
Thanks for your comment on my "Love is in the Air". It is my fav and was worried when the comment section remained a little quiet. You made me SMILE!!! Thanks big time!!
Love your submissions to "Head Over Heels". Good luck!
Hi Sarah! Thanks so much for your super sweet comments on my designs for the "Head Over Heels" challenge. Your work is so fun and fantastic -- it means a lot to hear from an accomplished Mintie!
Sarah...Many thanks for your direction on my Confetti Hearts. I made the suggested changes and you were right...look much better. I absolutely love your work and was flattered that you stopped by to lend me a hand!! Thanks again!!
Awh, thanks so much Sarah!! I'm truly flattered because you have such gorgeous designs and your iconic typographic tree card which I've drooled over in magazines! And go Michigan! My husbands from St. Joe, so I love visiting MI and seeing the gorgeous great lakes. Take care and thanks again for your sweet comment!!
Thanks Sarah! love your new holiday designs and your old ones too - as always - gorgeous work!
Hi Sarah! Thanks for the nice compliment! I think you're work is really fantastic so I really appreciate the feedback! Keep up the awesome work! :)
Thanks for your note, Sarah! I'll have to check out that font...
Thank you for the sweet comment! I LOVE all of your work!!
hi sarah! I already submitted the new version, does it better now? thanks so much..
Thank you so much for your feedback on my Holiday Cheer - I really appreciate it!
Thank you Sarah. Your style is so unique. I appreciate the feedback.
Sarah, congrats on all your editor's picks! You cleaned up!

Hi Sarah - I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I really admire your work. Typography is a struggle for me, and I think you are absolutely fabulous at it. Keep up the great work!
