Gorgeous projects, Melis! My favourite is the stitched together leaves-- so brillant and creative!


Melissa, your style and use of no traditional colors is so appealing. Helps us to see that "thinking outside the box" can look awesome! thanks!

Melissa, I continue to be astonished at how beautiful your projects are and how you put a unique touch to each of your creations. Your use of the PTI products in your projects continue to inspire me to purchase them! Be proud of what you do :)

Oh my gosh, where do I begin!! I just love the mitten card! Well, I think all of these are amazing mini works of art and I enjoy taking in your creative goodness!! You make it look so effortless yet so thought out and put together! How do you do it? That's the million dollar question. A perfect example is your 'A Merry Christmas' card. It's oozing with texture and different hues and tones of red and pink and then you throw in the aqua/teal stripe strip and it was the cherry on top. Or the 'Good Friend' card with the two different pattern papers sewn together to form the leaves. Brilliant! I try so hard to put together different patterns and colors and I always fall short. Very frustrating. I think it just gets lost in translation for me. I was just re-watching some of the videos from the stamp-a-faire event and was watching the video you did with the card that had the banners and one comment stood out with me when you said, "I've tried keeping it simple and doing one layer cards and that's just not me." Well I for one want you to keep doing things the way you do. Everyone has their own style and I happen to love yours! I just had to take some time and say thanks for bringing us such wonderful inspiration week after week. I look forward to every email I get and hope one day some of your amazing talent will rub off on me, lol!


The mitten is fabulous!

LOVE them all so sweet and gorgeous!

Gorgeous color combo on Peace, Love & Joy card, and Warmest Winter Wishes with the blush & red w/black sentiment and perfect felt holly takes my breath away :)

Melissa, Well, I'm right in line after Connie Smith. LOL All of your projects just make my heart sing. And I would love to be that little mouse sitting on your shoulder as you work, so I could do my projects as perfect as yours. =D Thanks for all of your lovely inspiration.

PTI keeps coming up with the great product and you keep coming up with the amazing projects... you make me soooo happy!

Stunning cards! I especially love that pink mitten. I am always amazed at the sheer volume of gorgeous cards you show in one post. You must be one speedy crafter! (or maybe I'm just slow :-) LOL!)
