I don't comment very often but I'm a loyal blog reader and could just be your #1 fan. ;) Everything you touch just turns to beauty. ♥ I have a question if you have time to answer at some point: I love all the stamps you use and you must have a giant collection. I'd love to start getting some of these sets but wondered how you store them so you have easy, easy access to them? Thanks! Hugs!

Love everything I'm seeing with this new set. Your ideas for these designs were so beautiful and Nicole's execution - amazing. I can't wait to start creating with Garden Variety. You inspire me. Thank you!


Genius. Brilliant. Wow. Melissa, just when I thought that it couldn't get any better, that your "Love Lives Here" was the best stamp set ever.... you have outdone yourself. I have never "needed" a stamp set and dies, more than these!!! :) Gorgeous. Wow again. And THANK YOU!

What a sweet stamp set and what you've created with it is gorgeous! I don't have much of a green thumb but do love the beauty of a garden.


I know this series will touch so many of us! What a beautiful mix of images and sentiments - I'll be so excited to add all of them to my supplies! Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us.

Melissa this set is so sweet... so many ways to use it.
Wished I had it here today to start using it!
Hope you design many more stamps with Nichole!
Hope you will share some more projects with this stampset.


Everything you promised with your sentiments is true, Melis. They are perfectly expressive of caring thoughts to be shared. And you top those words off with images that could have been lifted from a spread in Victoria magazine. Incredible.

Carol R

This is a definite Winner! Oh how pretty your creation is! I love vintage seed packets and have many images tucked away in a file. Just hoarding! Thanks so much for making this dream a reality!

Lisa Dolson

Oh, Melissa, your new set is divine! Love the Seed Packet die and frame...and that little picket fence is just the sweetest thing. Congratulations on another wonderful group of products. Love your project also. You always make paper crafts so interesting.
