Thanksgiving Cards


I have a love and hate relationship with blogging. Hence the absence on here. But then it dawned on me that it would be a good place to come and reflect on the projects I have done in the past or if I want to reshare something. I am more active in my other social media platforms. You can find me on Instagram as Melscreativecreations   My Facebook business page Mel's Creative Creations I am also on Snapchat as Koreanone2001 But that’s not why your here today!

I have to share my creative space with my son and we are homeschoolers. I finally was able to play with some new items I got from the holiday catalog and this is what I came up with. I used the Paisley and Posies Stamp Set as well as the paper and framelit. I got the idea from Pinterest but I don’t know who to give credit to as there was no name.  I also used the Petals and Paisleys Cardstock pack and used Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla as my base. The Rich Razzleberry flower was cut with the Paisley Framelits dies. I also used rhinestones as embellishments as well as the gold wink of stella pen.

Thank you for coming by and if your American I want to wish you a blessed Thanksgiving!

For You and Holiday Catalog



I just wanted to do a couple quick shares today.  The first picture you see is a card I made in a online card class if you will from Rona Wade. She has a club thing that is called Creative Corner. If you would like to try it out you can for the first month for $5.00. Of course I put on my own spin as I didn’t have all the supplies listed and used some retired product and left a couple things out entirely.  This showcased the Thoughtful Branches bundle that ends on August 31, 2016. If you would like your own you can do so here. Online Store

The second picture shows the cover of our new Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 1, 2016. I will do a Facebook Live sometime that day showing you the inside of the catalog. If you would like to watch that you can do so here. MelsCreativeCreations If you are in need of a Holiday Catalog please let me know. I would love to help you out.

What are you doing to be creative today? I would love to hear about it!

Graduation Cards








It’s that time of year for graduations and the like. My daughter and her boyfriend graduated from high school this year. We had a joint party for them this past Saturday. I wanted to make cards so I could give a gift card and a note in it. This is what I came up with. I usually get my inspiration from Pinterest. If you would like to follow me there you can do so here Melinda's Pinterest I used product that carried over to the new catalog and retired product. The only thing that I used that wasn’t Stampin’ Up! was the white gel pen I used to color the purple numbers. If you are in need of a catalog you can email me. My address is above my blog page if you came to my site to read this post.  Down below you will see a small list of some of the items I used to make these items.  If you would like to place an order with me you can do so here Online Store Thank you for coming by it means a lot to me!

More Stamps Please!

More Stamps Please!
I have some exciting news! I would love for you to join my team. Here is more information.

That’s right! Every new recruit who joins my team in June  will get two FREE stamp sets in their Starter Kit. That’s an added value of up to $104 USD/$136 CAD, depending on which stamps my new recruit chooses. It’s a pretty big deal since that’s the same month we launch the new catalog and the new stamps inside it. Plus, anyone hosting an event with me in June can also get Extra Stampin’ Rewards, which can be used towards their Starter Kit. Have the stars aligned or what? I would love to do a event with you. Whether it’s online or in person. Let’s talk!  If you decide to be a part of my team I’d love to help you pick out your stamps in your starter kit. Leave me a message so we can talk more.
