As we come to the end of another week, we hope it has been a good one for you!
Design Team member Evgenia Petzer has an adorable card to give us creative inspiration as we head into the weekend. Evgenia used the "Classic Elegance" paper collection for this card. A few things to notice on this card, is how Evgenia used one of the photos from the "Adopted Ancestors (PA408)" patterned paper as the focal point of the card. Here's a peek at the full 12x12 sheet - it's double sided, so you get the photos on one side, and the black and white floral on the other side of the page.:
The other really cool thing on this card is how Evgenia stamped a white feather onto our blue vellum envelope and tag (GN554). The vellum envelopes and tags (all three colors) are currently on sale on the Melissa Frances website, so be sure to check them out!
Thanks for visiting us this week. We hope you have a great weekend!
What better way to chronicle the changing seasons than a layout, and today we have a stunning one to show you made by design team member Emeline Seet. She says:
On this layout, I used an unconventional fall-theme colors (white, kraft and cream). I converted my photo to Sepia so that the picture blends effortlessly into the color combination. A touch of gold for the title makes the title stand out from the myriad layers of embellishments.
On this layout Emeline uses papers from our retired Attic Treasures Vol. 3 Collection. You can see what the entire paper collection looks like here:
We still have some of the paper in stock at www.melissafrances.com, but several of the designs are now sold out.
Thanks for your visit. We hope you are having a wonderful week!

If not, you're missing updates directly from Melissa and cute project photos like this one shared by Wanda Pagan yesterday:
Wanda said: I want to share my first design team project for http://artattacksupplies.com! It is a cupcake banner that spells sweet! I used the sweet life Melissa Frances papers and the embellishments as well! I also used ballerinas from the Art Attack Supplies store.
There are more photos of this project from Wanda on the Melissa Frances facebook page. We hope to see you there!
Here at Melissa Frances we can hardly believe that we are already in October! This year has really flown by.
As always, our design team members always have such inspiring projects with our Melissa Frances products and we love sharing them with you on this blog. Today's share comes to us from Rachel McAffee. Rachel uses our resin, trims and flowers to decorate this reproduction report card. The finishing touch to the project is our shabby flower clip (CIH024).
I decorated the cover of a kraft paper bag & tag (GN341) with Melissa Frances products and mixed Melissa France's Pure Silver Glass Glitter with a non-Melissa Frances inexpensive fine glitter to create a unique blend.
In order to adhere the glitter, I used double sided tape and taped across kraft pockets to create strips of glitter.
There is something so warm and personal about receiving a hand made card. Melissa Phillips is here today to share a super adorable card she designed using the Melissa Frances "The Sweet Life Collection". We'll let Melissa tell you about her project:
"The Sweet Life" collection just couldn't be any sweeter. I love the soft pastels mixed with the darling images found in this collection. Today I've used one of my most favorite images and sentiments found on a Sweet Life journal card.
I added some Melissa Frances glass glitter around the outside of my journal card and a large resin wreath to highlight my focal point.
A bit of pink crocheted trim near the bottom edge mixed with patterned paper and my card is ready to share with someone special.
