Adorable and *sweet* cupcake card, Melissa! Could just eat it up :) Stay warm -- we're expecting that storm you just had to begin hitting us here in NC tomorrow - UGH! We rarely get snow here in the south, but looks like we'll get some this weekend. Guess I'll 'have to' stay in and paper craft!! xo

Melissa, I don't know how you do it but your projects always inspire me. Vintage/shabby chic is not usually "my style" but you inspire me to make "my style" (clean/graphic/linear) better. To add layers, combine patterns, add bits and bobs, use stamps and papers in ways I didn't think of. So, thank you from this "clean and linear" girl.

And great idea on the 14 Days of Feb. I'd been tossing around that idea but not sure if I could pull it off with Feb so near and other things on my plate. But, I think I'll give it a try.


Gorgeous! So pretty.


Oh. My. Goodness. These are just over-the-top fabulous!!! I just LOVE this idea... my daughter will be thrilled (hmmm, what to do for my son? Monster trucks? LOL!). I will definitely do this. Can I ask what size glassine bags you used? It looks like maybe your notes are ATC-sized. So very sweet and yummy!


Gorgeous! Simply gorgeous!! Love the vintage Valentine look--it's my fave, and one I get to use a lot since dd #2 was born day after. Lucky me!


I love that sweet cupcake card! And the notes are a great idea :-)

Your designs are so pretty and warm and cozy, they feel like a hug. I think I'll try your idea, at least for a week, if I can't do 14 days. Thanks for giving us instructions. Hope your lil sweetie is feeling better.

What a wonderful idea!! I agree little notes would be so much better than candy anyday. (and better on the hips,LOL)


a lovely idea....i would love to do it, but would do it x2 for eahc of my little girls:):) you are always an inspiration; creativeness and for gently reminding me to love life as it is right now. thank you;):) ((hugs))


What a lovely idea to make these valentine cards. Love your cupcake card too.
I am impressed by your talent; how do you manage to get all the inspiration for all those lovely creations?


They are so so cute!!!!!each is unique!

My Melissa - goodness these are just lovely. And there's that precious pink seam binding tape (ribbon)! That's it! That's the one! Too bad I couldn't find it at Emma's Paperie. :(

Glassine bags and their contents are beyond beautiful!

Jana Eubank

What a darling idea! Each and everyone of these are works of art, Melissa! You have such a beautiful style!


A doily cupcake! how cute! these are so beautiful! i really love your 14 days of Feb. if I could just get my special someone to play along. tee hee! :)


Those are absolutely beautiful. I'm going to use bits & pieces of several as inspiration for a handmade card for my husband.
