It's so hard to pick a Melissa favorite! Many of these were pinned on my card inspiration board already! That star jar! And oh those layered felt flowers! The tea cup card made it to my board today...I just love when you use red. Thanks SO much for sharing your talent with us, Melissa! I have to say that your videos inspire me so much. It's been awesome seeing you create your embellishments "live". I hope that we see many more videos from you this year!


I always love your layers and details...such pretty projects!

Your Tea for Two additions project is one of my absolute favorites! I adore the stamp set and the fun and whimsical way you fit all of those images together SO beautifully. Congrats on another successful year at PTI!

Melis, congrats on your PTI anniversary! I have always loved your creations! I enjoy looking at all the little tidbits of special touches that make your creations yours. The stitching, the distressing, the pieces of felt, the added sparkles, the homeyness. It feels comfortable to sit and visit your blog. I imagine you have a heart as big as the wide open country. and a home filled with love.
Congrats on 5 1/2 years! You ARE an inspiration to me! thank you. hugs, sharon w.

I think Nicole said it best. "you make the world a more beautiful place" Thank you for 5.5 years of beauty and inspiration. I can't wait to see what this year brings.

Niki Willaert

Melis, you are such a fabulous asset to the PTI DT! I always look forward to seeing the beautiful cards/projects you make with their products each month!

Well, if I HAVE to pick a favorite, it would have to be you. Daily, I have my Lilybean visit, hoping to see some frosty, embellished, wonder, loving your sweet comments, and sharing a bit of loving wisdom. Thank you for both inspiration and creativity. I may be stretching the Word a bit, but Heb. 10:25 tells us not to give up meeting together. And to think on lovely things, (Phil. 4:8). Love meeting with you, cuz you are and create lovely things!

Patti Bishop

Hello - You are an amazing, talented designer! I so enjoy your blog, your thoughts and especially your work! Thank you for the opportunity to experience a little bit of you! You make my day much brighter!

Marlena M

Ever since the videos you ladies posted this summer...I can "hear" your sweet voice and spirit when I look at your work. Thank you for the lovely inspiration Melissa!

Cindy Reynoso

Your projects are so beautiful! So much detail and layering...lots of inspiration!
Thank you!

Luanne Ford

You never fail to amaze me with your beautiful creations! Your attention to all the special details are priceless inspiration. Thank you so much!


Melissa for me your designs are synonymous with the word 'magic' For some reason your's are often listed towards the bottom; maybe because all great things come to those that last ;-) but I am often scrolling down to see what you've done... and am always rewarded with amazing vintage creations that blow my mind. Your MIM posts always leave me smiling and I have to admit your creativity has encouraged more than a few PTI purchases from Amsterdam! I am really looking forward to more amazing projects with that crazy amazing eye for detail and layering in particular - you truly ROCK!!

Susan Gosman

The complexity and detail make your cards a joy to bhold.

Love your creations especially with your layering and details. I love how your cards are almost always with texture like fabric or felt etc. It's something that I find hard for me to pull off. Thanks for all the inspiration and I look forward to more.
