Danielle Flanders

gorgeous, Melissa! i love the color combo! love the photo and how you dressed it up too. so cute!!


Love the little Christmas cottage - add spices to the stuffing and what a perfect gift!

Jill Norwood

Love the silver embossing! It is just so pretty - and on kraft too! Love the little christmas cottage you made too! So charming and homey! I need to try this one of these days...I am always so intimidated by sewing as I don't have a machine...but maybe I could try something simple by hand with some pti felt....hmmm...thanks for the inspiration and your beautiful blog!


Your photocard is darling! Love all the stamping and embossing and detail. Your ornament is cute! I like all the little details like the stitching on the holly and the tiny candy cane. Very nice projects. TFS :)


I love the card Melissa! The little house pillow is so adorable!!!!

Patty O'Malley

Oh, how perfectly adorable this card and ornament are! The embossing is just the right touch. I think I should invest in a die-cutting machine. Love how you used the die. The photo is sweet, too!

Karen Lazar

Your house ornament is adorable and your photo card is neat too. Wish this stamp set had come out years ago!

Amy Papale

WOW ... stamping directly onto the photo and embossing -- so clever and innovative! I adore that sweet little decoration you created too, Melis ... the holly leaf die is a 'must have' this season :)

You projects are always so beautifully done and photographed! So inspiring!

Holly Saveur

So gorgeous and sweet..cute little candy cane on your ever so sweet it!


These are just fabulous! I especially love the bell holly berry and the stitches on the felt holly leaves!

I have a question about embossing on photos... Is that a "store-printed" photo or a "home-printed" photo? I'm really nervous about applying heat to a photo but love the effect!


did you make the ornament. would love the directions. linda Gerig


like it so much

Karen Letchworth

You did it to me again, Melissa. I just placed a huge order with PTI for the new Christmas stuff. I also found the mini paper mache boxes on EBay. The PTI snowflake die is already out of stock. I wish I knew someone who would trade me one of my antique floral frogs for the snowflake die set. Well, I guess I'll have to go on a waiting list. I just LOVE it all. Thanks again for more inspiration.
Hugs and Blessings to You,
