Minted.com...

So I have to admit I had never heard of Minted.com before getting engaged. It wasn't until I saw some of the giveaways from fellow blogging brides that I explored the site and fell in LOVE! It's almost like the Etsy version of invitations - lots of designers all being credited with their work.

In the past for my holiday cards I used sites like Shutterfly. Now don't get me wrong that's still a great site to work with, but the designs on Minted blew me away. And thanks to a Minted.com giveaway I had won from Bridalhood  I decided to use the giveaway on Save the Dates. My favorite design: float + celebrate where it opens up to reveal a timeline. How cute!

On a side note I discovered the Design Challenges and not being a trained graphic designer by any means I thought I'd give it a try. In my job I had to teach myself Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. for marketing materials and now I really want to go back to school and get a degree in Graphic Design. It's something I really enjoy doing and think I would even more so if I got some more training. So take a look at the Minted.com site and please like my designs (hopefully you do!) and when they are up for voting (I'll keep you posted) please vote for me!

Here's a few of my designs for the current "Head Over Heels" challenge.
