Hi Julie! Thank you for your comment and suggestions! I liked the way the swashes fit into the corner, but based on your comment, I've got a poll with a few options!! Cheers!
You totally just made my day - thanks!
Hi Julie, thank you so much for your feedback on 'Sock Greeting'. I adjusted the layout a bit as suggested and has made the difference. If you get the chance, I'd love to hear what you think - I'm planning to tweak it around a bit and may have a poll again soon. Thank you once again! :)
Thank you so much for your feedback on my design "A Few of My Favorite Things!" I have revisited the color combinations and photo and would love your feedback again if you have a second. :) Thank you so much for all your help!!
You just made my WEEK! thank you lady!! :)
Thank you Julie for the comment. :)
you give the best compliments :) thank you!!
ha, ha, ha, Julie! that is too funny! I imagine if he is a hipster that it may be a hemp taffy, ha, ha!
Thanks for the kind words and constructive feedback, Julie. I don't know how I let that red type sneak up taller...as soon as you pointed it out, my eyes went nuts too ha! :) thanks again!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment! It made my day!
Danke, Julie, for your awesomely helpful comments! You'd make a great art director, or client interpreter ;) But you are so good at stationery, that we need you here :)
Julie, thanks for your sweet comments. Your awe.some. comment made me laugh :) I'm always a fan of your work!
Thank you for the awesome comment! Made my day. :)
Hi Julie, thank you for your feedback on my Delicate Quince! I tweaked the font spacing and background color to have the text standing up a bit more. Love your designs! - Ana
Thank you Julie for your kind feedback on my "Bold & Bright" entry. I did play around with the leaves & I hope it looks better. As far as the type is concerned, I didn't space around the commas as initially I had & it was too spaced out & even playing with kerning was not visually appealing. ( I hope make sense) Nevertheless, I did go back & change it,so if you could find time,please have a look at it & let me know how it feels. Thanks again! :)
You always give the nicest, most thoughtful feedback- Julie- thank you! Love your work. -s
I"m jealous of ALL of your designs :)
Totally agree with your comments on Chapel... when I came up with the idea, the names were bigger on a banner over the bike, but it just didn't work out. I thought it seemed more STD as well, and was going to hold off submitting, but then I thought I'd just throw it up there and see what happens. I might take it back down. So frustrating when things don't turn out how you see them in your head ;)
Hi Julie! Thank you very much for the wonderful and lovely comment. I will do on the spacing, will submit it later.
Julie, thanks so much for your kind words! Means a lot coming from you.
Thanks for the kind words on my "Shake, Rattle, Play" design, Julie! As someone who is brand new to minted, I am constantly in admiration of all the fabulous designers like yourself - it is hard not to be a little bit intimidated. Your comment meant so much to me!
Wow… thank you for the best comment ever.
:) am Smiling Julie! Thanks for the comment... consider you a "superstar" and appreciate the encouragement!
Julie! You totally made my day! Best comment EVER! Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm such a big fan of your work and your awesome sense of humor. Best of luck in the baby shower challenge, "silhouetted" is one of my absolute favorites!
I just want to say thanks to you for leaving such a nice comment. Your card was also nice to.
Julie, thanks so much for your comment on "inky screen," you totally made my day!!
Julie, thanks so much for your comment on "rounding up" gift wrap. means a lot to me that you'd buy something i designed! :)
Hi Julie, Thank you for your lovely comment on "petite chambre" and let you know that actually you were a big influence for the lips pattern because of your previous comments on "precious doll", so you made my day :)

Thank you for your kind words about Our Little Monster. You are right, the letter spacing is off. Not sure why I did not notice that. Working way too much!

Thanks so much for your comment -- made my day!
I'm not sure if I should say thank you or if you were helpful???? Ha, ha, I guess I'm getting predictable. I'll have to change up my routine, Julie! :-)
thanks for your help on painted stripes. I agree.
is this pic any better... http://www.minted.com/design-rating/96313
hey julie, thanks for you comment on my holiday birth announcement. I made some last minute changes to the top portion. Any feedback you have would be great. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/96161

Thank you so much for your comment, Julie :) Made my day!
Julie, thanks for your comment on my party decor! You made my day! :-D
congrats on your wins Julie...its always a delight for me to see what you come up with...love your work :)
Thanks so much for the comment on my joyous snow design, I always work better with good critiques! I made some changes! Thanks!
Thanks Julie - Funny, I am working on that as you sent that message. I entered this guy last year and didn't get picked. Love my headline but agreed, needs a little more ... love. Thanks for the push!
hey Julie, thanks for the comments on my ear to ear design! yeah, I prefer those too but I guess I was hung up on the generic look request that was in the minted email. I think I'll switch out the designs though. also, in advertising you wouldn't want to show and say the same thing [we call it see say], rather leave that something to the viewer's imagination. thanks again! carol
Ha Julie! You kill me... Thank you for the good laugh this morning :). Also thank you for the award & the feedback... Much appreciated :).
Hey Julie! I posted an alternate image on Merry Sorbet, would you mind taking a peek and seeing if helps alleviate the "movie badge" feeling? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/83538 Thank you!!
I needed a good laugh today, so thanks for your awesome comment! ; ) Now you see how I felt (and still do) when I saw your Happy go lucky lettering. Seriously though, I really value your comments since you are a truly fantastic designer : )
Julie, thank you for your feedback about Merry Sorbet! You confirmed what I thought about the similarity to the movie badges; I had noticed it too after I submitted it so I will try to see if I can find a solution. I'd love your feedback if I come up with a fix.
Hey Julie, where did you see the minimum font size requirements?
Julie- I'm really digging all your submissions for the Greeting Card challenge!! Great work!!
Holy Cow! I missed one! Congrats on THREE calendar wins! :)
Congrats on your TWO wins, Julie!!! Great work!
the idea was coming from a thank you card I already have for sale on minted. I am still trying to work out the design. Thanks so much for help!
Hi! I had to laugh at the visual the slash-car-tire comment gave me. That would be quite a wedding! I might re-think that texture on this design -- thank you for your advice! :)
hey julie, thanks for your very complimentary comment on my come together design. trying to be more myself these days! good luck in the challenge!
Hi again Julie - would be great if you could check out my changes! thanks so much :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/70363
Thanks for your advise Julie! Appreciated!
Thank you for your suggestions! I'm applying them today! I felt the same way about the picture over the wood and I didn't know how to fix but I think I do now! Thanks so much for reaching out!
hi Julie, thanks so much for your nice comment on my yearly banded design :)
thanks so much for your help- great suggestions! - and they definitely improved the design : )
Congrats on your Winner star (and your pick), Julie!!!! That's got to feel good!
Thanks Julie, for your feedback on "heart noel" :) The noise near the letters could be a result from saving for the web, like you said, or they could be because they are cut out from the dark square, showing the image beneath, which is by design. I was wondering about the kerning of "NOEL" myself as well. It looks like it is left aligned by default - I will try to center it later tonight. Thanks again!
Thanks for your comments on my "simply merry" design! Yes, the letters are a bit rough on "merry." It's the design of the font - maybe to give it more of a hand-drawn feel??
thanks so much for the kind words on my fans of happiness design! your nudge helped me along!!
Hey Julie! I was hoping you'd be able to look at my "Wedding Bells" invitation again? I changed the ribbon font because hoedown wasn't what I was going for! haha. Thanks so much for your feedback. It's always super helpful!!
Thank you so much for the feedback on my bouquet design. i have made a couple modifications with your suggestions. I orginally intended on it being more of an abstract bouquet design, but i went overboard with the flowers, so now i think the leaves and flowers have a closer level of detail. I had a hard time nixing the ribbons, but i did modify them so they werent so flat. See what you think. Thanks again!!!
Do glad business or pleasure was a pick. I love that one.
Hi Julie, thank you for the feedback on my bay shower invitation. I centered the yellow banner at the bottom of the invite rather than having it bleed off the page. I'd love to hear what you think about the changes. :-)
Took off the chevron pattern on my baby invite - would love to hear what you think! :) Thanks!
I just updated the Baby Diaper card... I took your suggestion of using the "Girl?" and "Boy?" in the diapers instead... I think that works much better. Thank you so much!! :-)
Hi - thanks for your comment! I am going to try out removing the chevron stripes... as soon as I have time! :)
Thanks for your comment Julie on my Petite Lamb card (and others...) :-) Got all these revisions going at once! I might post back here to see if I can coerce you into taking another peek at the Baby Diaper reveal, once I get it modified... :-D of course only if you have time! Thanks so much and have a great day!! :-)
thanks for your feedback on my 'Baby Type' design :) much appreciated!
Thanks for the input...appreciate the comment!
Hi, Julie! Did you call my cell # yesterday? I was driving through a "dead zone" when I answered and the call was disconnected. If that was you, I apologize!
Julie, thanks for your comment on Love Notes. I cleaned up my messy heart and tweaked the color a bit. What do you think now? Better?
I don't use or have Photoshop - is that my problem? I am really a neonate when it comes to this - I just LOVE everyone's designs and want to learn more....I sincerely appreciate your guidance....
LOVE your site - so clean and pretty. Easy on the eyes!
Very much agreed! Thanks for the push and the skillful eye!
I appreciate your comments on my submission image - I am using the template I downloaded, but have obviously not the right way. I'll keep working on it. Thanks again.
Thanks so much for your feedback on my women's stationary design I will give that a try!
Hi Julie! I was wondering if you could maybe email me some info + pricing for your new printing service/company. I saw your posts about it in the forum, and I checked out the website. I know the site will be live in February, but figured I'd get a head start by contacting you directly. Please feel free to email the info + pricing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much! :o)
Wow, thanks so much for your gushing comment on my Citrus Tulips design! That just made this hectic, crummy day bright...as citrus! Good luck in the challenge too - love your work!
