About Susan Brown

I am crazy about design in general and Minted specifically. My designs lean toward simple and classic with a bit of pretty but I always hope it's a look you'll love.

Sue- I'm sorry for the delay in responding! I had to look hard, really hard for the design you were referring to. I vaguely see what you're talking about but nothing to worry about here! I usually hide most of my designs most of the time in large part because it stresses me out to worry about overlap with others! I hope you did not consider mine too close to yours? Regardless, love your entries for save the dates and best of luck! xoxo

Thank you!! I totally see it now. It's like the top mimics the bottom almost. A little too cutesy for me. I'm going to go with that photo since it was the clear winner, but darken the sky so it works better.

Thanks for your comment, Sue! But I'm not sure which photo you meant! I could tinker to make sure it doesn't create a bad shape at the top.

Hi Susan! Thanks so much for the note! And no worries! I just looked at the designs that you mentioned (I actually had not seen yours until you mentioned it), and yes, they do use the same photos and have some similar design aspects, but I definitely didn't think they were the same/too similar. :) I think that student in the photos was one of the few that had a good serious of photos so it was bound to happen that the same photos were used. And as you had mentioned, I'm pretty sure I had mine hidden until the very end so I know any similarities would have been completely coincidental. :)

Hi Susan, it was great to meet you too. The rest of the trip was great. I feel so lucky and it will be hard to top. I'm not sure I will make it back next year but it definitely won't be my last visit!

Hi Susan, thank you for your comment on my Cool Drule card - I really appreciated that as I spent so long on it and was beginning to wonder if I'm just on my own planet :) good luck with your entries too

Susan, thank you for the super nice comment you left on my profile! You are the best!! I'm so glad to hear my Happy Birthday card at NSS turned out well and caught your eye. Thanks for the kind words! I'm flattered! Hope you had a fabulous time in NY. Love your holiday submissions, but you always do such great work! :)

Hi Susan! How are you so sweet?! Yours was the loveliest compliment I received. I'm struggling, as always, as we all are, and I'm glad this struggle payed off with the greetings cads challenge to earn me this comment from you! Cheers to new skills (picking up new ones is one of the best parts of this craft), but don't you change your style, it's already perfection.

Susan, Thank you so much for your comment on my Super Hero kids party invite. I was feeling really good about the design, then after the voting and the "likes" started rolling in (or not rolling in :) ) I wasn't feeling as great about it. So you made my day!!

Hi Susan, thank you so much for your message on my Baby Shower pick! Big congrats on your wins as well, they're gorgeous. My favorites are your Twin pins and the baseball invite, that one is pure perfection!

Congrats on your baby shower pics! You had so many awesome entries this challenge. I'm still bummed the voting base doesn't love your puns as much as I do though ;)

Susan, thank you so much for your comment! I was totally going for the "pardon my French" expression and totally butchering it! Now I know why I was reluctant to enter this challenge in the first place! Anyway, pardon my French, but merci beaucoup! ;-)

Thanks for the like on my "Rosé Et Bébé" submission. I see that you're from Menomonie. I am a Wisconsin native and a UW Stout alum, with a degree in Industrial Design. I loved my time there. Wish you continued minted success!

Thanks for the message. Seems like there isn't a ton of Minted designers near me/us so it's nice to connect with someone so close. Such beautiful entries in this most recent challenge (and previous challenges)! Best of luck!
