Hi Katie, thank you for your sweet, sweet comment, wish you a lot of luck!
what a sweet comment - thank you Katie! You made my day. You have beautiful entries as well- all these challenges have gotten so hard! such amazing competition.
Hey Katie,I have a running poll for my Hello Baby design & I made a few changes as you suggested,please have a look at it whenever it is convenient for you. :) Thanks!
Thankyou Katie for you beautiful comment on my Hello Baby design. You really made my day :)
Hi Katie, you're welcome. The letterpress printing process is tricky, understanding how to use it well is throwing us all of our normal pace. I miss the use of the die-cut shapes for this challenge. Cheers, Robin
Hey Katie, thank you SO much for the awesome comment. It really made my day!
thanks Katie for your kind comments on my birth announcements. you are too sweet!
Thank you Katie for the nice comment! It really made my day :)
Hey Katie! Thank you for the huge help with my design! I'm so glad you pointed that out, because the design changed from my original idea, but I didn't realize it until you mentioned it. I think the design now needs to change to landscape, but can you just look at it to see if you like the text now? Thanks!!
lol, no - I don't think you killed it. I really like the new font, I don't think I've ever seen it before. I also liked emmascript too - it fit with the border so nicely. That design was such a puzzle - but I think you finished it up well. :)
Hey Katie, I hear ya. And typically yes it is frowned upon but I recently had the same dilemma with my boyish and girlie label designs because they are not simply alternate color ways of each other but some of the design elements (albeit small) are not identical. And I think in this particular challenge where the sex is such a big deal it would be ok. That's my 2 cents, hope it helps.
I'm so behind on getting back to everyone but I just really wanted to say thank you for your sweet message Katie! I felt so nervous on video but it is so nice to know that others enjoyed seeing it. I always love seeing your work as you are so talented and your kind words really meant a lot to me!
Thanks Katie, I actually started that way on hollywood love story and planned on having that as one of the alternate colorways. I'll do one up and attach so people can see it :)
Katie, you're so nice... thank you. I admire your work, so it means a lot to me. Your "Joyful Wreath" is in my top 10 favourites. Best of luck. :)
Thanks right back! :)

Hi Katie, thanks so much for your help with my 'happily ever after' print. I'll have a play around today and see how I go with that crazy bow! hehe
Hi Katie! Thanks so much for your kind comment on my "forevergreen" design for the Head Over Heels challenge. It means a lot to hear from someone who's got some awards under her belt! I admire your design style - it's cool and refined. I especially like the "thoughtful" illustration you submitted for the Chronicle Books challenge - it's so unique! :)
I'd love for you to check out my latest update to Straight Shooter! Your advice really helped, I think I was overthinking it! Let me know what you think. Thanks!!!

Thanks so much Katie! I hope we can have a PHila Mintie meet up some day so I can meet you and any other PA designers ; )
Katie, thank you so much for the helpful advice with my design - I was stuck, and you were able to see what wasn't working : ) I toured your website, and your work is spectacular! Thanks again!
Hi Katie! Thank you for your comment I appreciate it. Love what you are up to!
I'm clogging up your message area, but wanted to thank you for the kind words- I really appreciate it! :)
Thank you Katie! :)
Thank you so much for the sweet comment Katie!
Congrats on TWO designs in the top ten- awesome!!
Congratulations Katie! Cupid's Arrow was one of my favorite designs in the minibook challenge.
Congrats Katie, WOO HOO two designs in the top ten... way to go :D
Katie, thank you for your comment (re: simple waves)! So sweet of you. Last night when I uploaded the last version I was wondering if I should even bother...hahaha
Sorry to make you worry! ;) I've just always been told that a design should be well within the .25" safety zone. When a design is trimmed the cutter margin is usually .125" so if your border is only .125" then it could be a problem. I've also had borders in the safety zone that were trimmed slightly off and made the piece unusable, so that's why I try not to use them.
Hi Katie! No problem... .25" or larger is best and it should be well within the .25" safety zone. Personally I try to stay away from borders because there is too much room for error when it's trimmed. Really like your designs, btw. :)
Thanks Katie for your sweet comments.. I can't wait to see your designs :)
Hi Katie... yeah I guess it would be a far trip to NYC. Hopefully you can make it... I love to meet you.
Hi Katie... are you going to the NYC meet up? BTW... your minibook submissions were awesome :)
Thanks for your comments on Carnival. I created a new version of it, Marquee, and am now torn between the two. I've come to realize that stationery design is a lot more challenging than it looks!
Hi Katie! Thanks for leaving the comment on my site - always excited to get positive feedback as well :) You have such a great style, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
