Wow! A gorgeous layout by Melissa Mann!
"I punched out various patterned papers with my Fiskars postage stamp punch. I laid them out in a grid pattern on my cardstock and stitched each row down. Then I backed my photos with kraft card stock and used some pop dots on the back and put a row of pictures across the layout. My title went below the pictures and I placed various word stickers around the layout! All in all, it only took about 40 minutes to complete this layout :-)" ~~Melissa
I love Melissa's block design and all the stitching!

Fancy Pants newest collection Baby Mine - soft, inviting, and really fun to work with!
Viva Pearl Pens
The applicator on the new Viva Decor Pearl Pens works like a charm! The glitter liner offers the same applicator and put your glitter accents with total precision. Lots of Viva Pearl Pens and Inka-Gold colors to choose from. Inka-Gold is similar to Rub n Buff and offers even more colors to choose from, so antique away.
Get your misting hand ready, the new Tattered Angels Chalkboard colors (12!) are gorgeous and vibrant, you will want them all :)
Must have new resin pieces by Melissa Frances. Use as is or add some of the new
Inka gold to them for color! Fun Pom Pom ribbon, summer accents.
Sizzix Die Banner
Once you make one of these banners, you WILL find Fun places to hang them and need to make another- lol.

A beautiful and fun layout by Rahel Menig celebrating her crafty space!
Here is what Rahel says about her layout: "Just another happy layout with bright and light colors :) I like to create banners on my pages lately. I usually glue them on with my hot glue gun and with this layout I used my sewing machine to sew right over the banner to give it a bit more texture."
What a great new collection from Basic Grey- Out of Print.
Must have Hero stamps to match this collection.

A gorgeous canvas mini album by Melissa Mann!
"Hey Everyone! I love these Maya Road canvas albums! They are so easy to use and I love that you can use mist on these. For this one, I misted the front of the mini with Mr. Huey in Pickle; I punched out a few butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch and then sewed them all over the front - a sticker and chipboard embellishment finished it off. For each spread, I used the same design - this makes it easy to complete the mini and it provides cohesion though out the book :-) All of these photos were ones I took with the camera on my phone on a visit through a great antique store!" - Melissa
I absolutely love all the texture and details on Melissa's mini album!
