Meljen's Designs - Easter Inspired

It's Thursday so that means we have a new digital release and challenge for you from Meljen's Designs. The challenge this week is "Easter Inspired". If you would like to play along with us, you can link up your entry, view the challenge rules, and see the DT samples on the Meljen's Designs blog.



For my project today, I used one of the new digis, Peter Bunny. I love this sweet little bunny! Check out the pinwheel in the corner. I have my DH to thank for that. He thinks I use to many buttons so I was trying to do something a little different. What do you think?

Here is a peek at the entire new release available at Whimsy Stamps starting today.

If you haven't already entered my blog candy drawing for 4 Meljen's Designs digital stamps of your choice, you may want to check it out HERE. You also have a few more days to enter the drawing for 5 digital stamps of your choice from Whimsy Stamps and a chance to be a guest designer for the month of April HERE.

    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…
