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.
We always love seeing the projects our Melissa Frances customers around the world are making with our paper collections. Today, we are pleased to share with you an amazing wedding album from Russian scrapbooker Veda Bakalova.
I have been loving scrapbooking for four years now and all four years the paper of Melissa Frances has been my favorite. Each year, you surprise me and each new collection your launch inspires me more than the last! Thank you for the inspiration. I hope you will be interested in seeing the big wedding album I made from your products. The finished album size is 25 x 30 cm.
What we at Melissa Frances especially love about this project is how Veda combined papers from our "The Sweet Life", "Classic Elegance", "C'est la Vie", and "Attic Treasures" collections in her creation of this album. This is an example of how so many of our collections mix and match across their specific product lines!
Thank you Veda for sharing your creativity with us. Your album is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and we're sure it will look stunning with your photos added into it!
Happy Monday! Today we have a wonderful project to share with you from design team member Emeline Seet. She says:
"This clipboard was altered with the idea of creating a personal mood board. It holds several piece of my favorite pattern papers of different sizes and is a convenient way to organize loose pattern papers."
We especially love how stricking the flag strip of black patterned paper is on this project. Emeline used the 'B' side of our "At First Blush (PA404)" to create her flag.
Thanks for visiting with us at Melissa Frances today!
My background paper is from the Classic Elegance collection ("At first Blush (PA404)" and "Bits of Paper (PA403)") . The colors and patterns tie in so perfectly with The Sweet Life. And I love using a Melissa Frances vellum envelope whenever possible, as they create such a soft background layering effect.
We always love seeing how the Melissa Frances products are being used. Today's project share comes to us from Patty O'Malley who used the oldie but goodie "C'est la Vie" paper collection to craft this 50th birthday card. For her patterned paper Patty used "Hydrangeas" (PA386). With its beautiful taupe background with faint text with an overlay of purple/violet hydrangeas, it is a truly classic design.
Thank you for sharing with us and the Melissa Frances blog readers Patty!
