Love your Birthday project as I do all of your work! I am a friend of Jenn Ellefson- we live in the same town. Just wanted to tell you how often I am inspired by you- thanks Melissa! Eileen p. 186 :-)

I have an Independance Day baby too! She'll be 5 be five on the 4th. I know think you're extra cool now. ;-)

Your magic with this set is so fabulous! I am an expat. living in Australia for the last 21 years and so homesick (still). This set and your use of it is just what I needed. So fabulous! The first card of Old Glory and that majestic eagle totally warms the heart. So perfect!


Great mix and match of papers, layers, stamping and die cuts! I like your "soft" collage style with the touch of bold. So neat! :)


I had to go and purchase a copy :) Love your project in it, Melis! It's so nice to see the picture before seeing your name and be immediately able to identify your style! I was contemplating the cupcake die forever, but I think I will put it in my cart and check it out with the May release :D
