I love those colors. The cards you created turned out amazing.
Love these happy colors, and of course the spring feel. Very happy looking, and I like that!

Melissa I just adore all your cards! Your video was terrific you did an excellent job of showing the whole process! I was so glad to hear that you loose items on your craft table too..hahaha.


Oh Melissa, a thing of beauty is a joy forever. Thanks for all the beauty and joy today. Love all your cards. It's great to see the different color combinations. Your videos are easy to follow. Excuse me now I must go make a card. Happy Day! Sara

Absolutely beautiful! I love all three cards and will be giving this a try. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity. Have a great week.

Such pretty cards. Love your color inspiration pictures & your interpretation of them is wonderful. Your last card is particularly pretty using such a different mix of colors. And, thanks for reminding me of the great sentiment in the Love Lives Here set - perfect for Valentine's Day! Have a great week.


So beautiful! I love all the die cutting ideas - I'm definitely going to try this! I have been meaning to send my friend a Thank you card and this will be a wonderful card to send through the mail! It will get me from "thinking" about it to actually making it!


And I forgot to add - I also lose things around my craft space too - drives me nuts at times thinking "I just had it", but it all shows up eventually!


Oh my; that's all I think. Your last card of this post is stunning. It took my breath away.......

Melissa your video and post are just FANTASTIC! I used your video as a class and made a card like it last night! The details you add are amazing! It truly makes me appreciate your incredible design style even more! Love all of the different color stories you show too! Thanks so much!


All three cards are BEAUTIFUL, Melissa! The design is fab and the the colors and florals are wonderful. :)

Loving the limeade today!! Your cards have such depth, I find new details each time I look!


OH a little breathe of color. -12 warming up!! and your beautiful designs gave me hope for a brighter day. Just love all the layers of such pretty details. Thanks for Spring like ideas!


I absolutely live your videos! This one did not disappoint! Beautiful design and card! I had to laugh because I always lose things on my table all the time! Especially those tiny little acrylic stamps! I always end up finding whatever I lost but sometimes it takes awhile. Have been a bit anxious about using the Rosie Posie 2 set but after watching you, I think I can do it.


These cards are gorgeous! Thanks for doing a video to show the process. I don't have any of these sets, but they sure are on my wish list, especially after seeing these. Gonna have to explore my stash to see what I can use for now. Thanks for the inspiration!

Larissa Heskett

Okay!! Yummy Yummy Yummy!! I'm LOVING them all!! each one has a SPECIAL look and feel and I could see different ones for each one of my sisters because of what their Favorite colors are!! Too darn CUTE Melissa!! thanks so much for sharing and have a fabulous Week!! ;)


Melissa, you are so talented and creative. Your work is always so lovely and a joy to see. It is an honor to watch your creative process. Thank you for sharing.


Gorgeous cards! Love the idea of creating a little window to frame a patterned background or sentiment. So inspired by all the beautiful layers and embellishments on your cards!
