One Happy FREAK!

Good Morning, Stampers!

I have some very EXCITING NEWS!! I am officially A FREAK! 

Ok, some of you are thinking "Tell me something I don't know, Melissa!" lol! Actually, I am officially a member of the Control Freak Stampers!!

I was SO thrilled to be invited to this exclusive group of incredibly talented stampers! What an honor!

If you arrived here from Debbie's Blog, you are in the right place. I love what Debbie has done with her NEW products - she is such an inspiration to me!

I'm excited to share with you my first two projects featuring NEW Catalog Products!

First up is an envelope and card ensemble. I decided it would be fun to try something a little different. I cut my envelope in half and inserted the card with each half. This allows for a little more decorative envelope and  definitely needs to be hand-delivered. It offers a nice, unexpected twist to a typical envelope. I used the Bloom with Hope  - a NEW, Exclusive Hostess Stamp Set!

Next up is my new Garden "Welcome" Door Hanger featuring the NEW Blended Bloom single stamp with the totally fantastic Stampin' Blendabilities - alcohol markers. Look how vibrant that color is! GORGEOUS!

Thanks so much for "hoppin" by! 

Continue on the blog tour and see what Justin has to share with you. His projects never cease to amaze me - he is extremely artistic!

Happy Stampin'!

I love every little detail of your Bloom with Hope Envelope and card! I often forget about decorating the envelope, but yours is truly unforgettable!

Wow, what a fun envelope!! So the recipient will get to keep both as a paper treasure! :)

Congrats on your first hop with the Control, too!

What a fun idea with the cut envelope, Melissa! Love how you decorated the card and envelope. The banner is just gorgeous!

How clever with the envelope! I now think that I 'be seen it and tried to figure it as some kind of 3 panel card. Thnx for sharing :)
