Meljen's Designs Blog Hop & Fun Fold challenge


Today we are having a blog hop to welcome the new members to the Meljen's Design team. We are so happy to have Darsie, Robbie and Candace join us! Be sure to read my entire post to find out how to win some Meljen's Designs digital stamps!

Hopefully you came here from Candace's blog. If you did you are on the right track! If not, start the hop at Meljen's Designs blog so that you get a chance to look at all the eye candy. If you get lost along the way, I have a complete list of all the blog hop stops at the bottom of my post.





For my project, I paper pieced Hearty Hippo which is one of the new releases available today on Whimsy Stamps. Since the new Meljen's Designs challenge is Fun Folds, my card is a joy fold card. You can find directions for a joy fold card HERE. I changed the measurements to make a 5x5 inch card.

Here is a peek at all the new Meljen's Designs digis released today. They are perfect for your Valentine's day projects.




Now, you are probably wondering what you need to do to win some Meljen's Designs digital stamps. There are several ways for you to win this week.


1) Join the Meljen's Designs Fun Fold challenge for your chance to win 3 Meljen's Designs digis. Remember you don't have to use a Meljen's Designs image but we would love it if you did.

2) You have a chance to win the Hearty Hippo digital stamp right here on my blog by leaving a comment. Entries end when the hop ends (Tuesday, February 8th.) The winner will be chosen by random.org. I will announce the winner on my blog on Wednesday, February 9th.

3) Each stop on the hop will give a way one Meljen's Designs digital image to a random commenter.

4) You have a chance to be the blog hop's GRAND PRIZE WINNER. The grand prize is your choice of four Meljen's Designs digital images. The winner will be announced on the Meljen's Designs blog on Wednesday, February 9th. To qualify you need to comment on each design team's member's blog hop post before the end of the hop (Tuesday, February 8th.)


Thank you for hoppin' by today. The next stop on the hop is Darsie's blog.
