Melissa, what great Father's Day card and gift ideas. It's so hard making masculine cards, great rich colors. Thanks for sharing.


What a wonderful gift idea. Love all the work you put into this. Just amazing

Love the smudge of fresh snow, my kind of detail! :) The pocket idea for candy is great!

*Super* masculine projects!! Loved them both!


i could not wait to see how you would work your feminine magic with handmade gifts for hit the nail on the head, so to speak! The Father's Day gift package was genius! I picked up some french fry boxes awhile back on the discount rack and have been wondering how to creatively use them (rather than letting them get lost in my supply closet). Can;t wait to try this idea out...4th of July boxes?... Perfect are amazing!

Great projects, Melissa! How you turned that Sweet Shoppe card into the totally masculine one just amazed me! Love how you used the elements from three different sets! The layered Center Style: Masculine label is so cool and tied together with the beer label and station theme buildings--you produced a winner for sure!

Hi Melissa,

Although I did not doubt that you could make masculine cards I did not imagine they would turn out to be MAGNIFICENT, just for the fact that you are such a girly girl, I will NEVER doubt myself when it comes to you again, I should have known better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the cards and gift embellishment and composition and choice of colors.............SUBLIME!!!!
