About Erin L. Wilson

Stationery is my happy place. I'm a stay-at-home mom of three kids and a very part-time piano teacher who designs in her "free time." My great loves are God, my family, piano, airports, design, chocolate chip cookies, cider donuts and Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream.

Hi Erin, Thank you for liking my “Ocean Wave” design. And, I notice that one of my foiled wedding submission "grand garden" shares some similar design concepts with your “Vintage” submission. I hope it doesn’t bother you :-)

Yikes, 3%! That is depressing. I didn't know that is what Minted said, but considering they will probably only take 300 designs for both the wedding challenges, those numbers are probably accurate. :(

Thank you so much, Erin for your comment on my tulips. Most people choose black, because on screen it looks more dramatic. But my feeling is to go with my personal favorite, which is also the light version. Your designs are so beautiful!

Hi Erin - it was very kind of you to suggest a blue box with multiply on my Dreamy Floral. I wouldn’t have thought to do that so I’m truly grateful to you for sharing your design gem with me! I did this and also changed the body text so I think I have improved the design :)

I have been thinking about that "Gifts of Plenty" award for designs with 6+ photos in it a *lot* recently. It's just so hard to come up with something new and fresh. I just really feel like your design nails something really interesting but in a way that customers are likely to get and really like.

Hi Erin! thank you for your advice on my leafy antlers which I really appreciated. I have drawn some chunkier swashes which definitely look better than the first effort. I am only wondering now if that brushery font looks a bit heavy and overpowers the more delicate antlers? I've tried a different font as well which sits nicely with the antlers but.....it looks more elegant than funny. What do you think? :)

Hey! They don't look evenly spaced next to the text. The bottom one feels closer to the last name. But I also think a line at the top and bottom isn't necessary? I don't know. Maybe try a few things and do a poll?
