thanks for the heads up for the stationery for the San Fran challenge . . I wasn't sure they used the word personal in the submission guidelines and the example link was to personalized stationery. I will take the personalized name off, minted can always let winners know if they want to personalize I guess . . . Good luck with the challenges - Corinne

Hi Sarah, thank you for taking the time to make constructive comments on my Brilliant Calligraphy save the date design. I was trying to use rounded corners as the trim but the template was not looking correct so I went to straight edges and I changed the typography.

Hi Sara! I hope you are well. A new Nashville-area Mintie (Rachel Schendel) reached out to me to see if we all wanted together... I think it's just four of us (you, me, Jessica & Rachael) the week of February 9th. If you are interested will you send me your email address? You can send it to saramalone@me.com. Thanks! -S

Hi Sara, I thanks so much for the feedback on my design! I kind of felt the same way, but was having a hard time picking something out. Because the pattern isn't a true paisley (like on bandanas) I wanted to convey that western feel. Any other thoughts on how to convey this or a different font to use? Thanks again!

Thanks for the tip on going from AI into PS. It was weird, only one of the four blue colors I chose shifted color. I'll try this technique.

I am happy to hear that you like the floral pattern. My illustrations are usually created in Illustrator. The floral pattern was an inspiration from an ornate mirror frame in my mother's home. I took a picture of it and traced it in Photoshop. I do try my best to create and use original elements and encourage you to keep doing same. I must say that it's sometimes a lot of work (I often run into creative blocks) but it's very rewarding! P.S. If I was in Grade 2 I'd get my parents to buy me the "choo choo choose me" valentine to hand out to my classmates! :)
