Meljen’s Designs–Blast from the Past!

There are exciting things going on at Meljen’s Designs. I can’t let the cat out of the bag yet, come back on September 1 for the big announcement and a blog hop!

While we are gearing up for the blog hop, this week we are posting either our FIRST or FAVORITE Meljen’s Designs projects. I decided to do both.

(You can click on the photos below to go to my original posts.)

This was my very first Meljen’s Designs card from April 2010 which I created when Melissa launched her first design team using the image Unicorn’s Rest.

Also in April 2010, I made this card for the 3-D challenge using Sick Little Bear. I enjoyed adding the details like the Kleenex and the French knots on the blanket.

This tag is from October 2010 using Cutie Sitter Witch. I think it was one of the first times I used cardboard and paint on a project.

Lastly, I love this large rosette that I made last Christmas to decorate the garland on my bannister. I used Rudolph out of the set of Santa’s reindeer that Melissa designed.

If you would like to see more of my Meljen’s Designs projects, you can see then all HERE.

You may be wondering what the new challenge at the Meljen’s Designs blog is this week since we do not have a new release for you. We are challenging you to show off either your FIRST or FAVORITE MELJEN’s DESIGNS project. Stop by the Meljen's Designs blog to see the FIRST and FAVORITE creations from the rest of the DT and to enter your project.

Don’t forget to stop back on September 1st for the big Meljen’s Designs news!

Thank you for stopping by!

Such cute, cute projects, Cheryl! I just love them all. Being a huge fan of Halloween, I am quite smitten with your tag. And so love the details on the sick bear card. The kleenex is brilliant and I adore the french knots. :)

I love every single one of them and I remember that beautiful Rudolph rosette, it is gorgeous and I bet your bannister was beautiful. I am a bit partial to that sick little bear and all the fun details you added. :) Did I hear somewhere you had a birthday :) if so hope it was a great one, you deserve it.

That little sick bear is my favorite too, but I can't get the rosette out of my mind. I wanted something different for my banister garland this year and I think I just may "borrow" your idea. I think I will say your project is my inspiration. That sounds better than borrowing, doesn't it. Ha Ha.
