Meljen's Designs Blog Hop and Store Grand Opening


Today is the big day and we have a lot to celebrate! It is the official launch of the new Meljen's Designs store, a DT blog hop, the kick off the first Meljen's Weekly Thursday challenge, and the release of a new digi stamp pack with 10 new images. Trust me, you are going to love them!

If you didn't come from Kim's blog, you may want to go to Meljen's DT blog to start the hop at the beginning so you don't miss out on any of the fun. Make sure you visit each DT blog on the hop and leave a comment to qualify for a random drawing of a $10 gift certificate to Meljen's new store and to collect a special surprise at the end.




My first card uses Unicorn's Rest from the new release. Isn't she sweet? She is available with the rest of Meljen's images in the new Meljen's Designs store. The new store offers INSTANT DOWNLOADS, lower prices on word art, easy browing, and a search function. If that is not enough to entice you to visit the store, just go check it out because it is so cute!







I also wanted to make a more boyish card so I used Cuddle Dragon from the new release Don't you think "Dreaming of You" is a great sentiment for inside of the card?


Speaking of dreaming, are you are dreaming of a $10 gift certificate to Meljen's new store? If so, remember you need to comment on all the blogs along the way to qualify for the prize drawing. The hop will end on Wednesday, April 7th at noon EST. The winner will be posted on the Meljen's DT blog on Thursday, April 15th.

For another chance to win some Meljen Design's images, enter the Weekly Thursday Challenge on the DT blog. Our first challenge is "Anything Goes" and will run from April 1 to April 7, 11:59 PM EST. You DO NOT need to use a Meljen Designs image to take part in the challenge, but if you do, you will be entered twice for the prize drawing. The prize will be 3 Meljen's Designs images of the winner's choice. Read more details on the DT blog.


Remember, if you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of the DT blogs in order at the top of my side bar.

Now hop on over to Shannon's blog. I know she has something adorable waiting for you.


Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
