A Creative Journey with Melissa December Release Design Team Project

Welcome to the monthly NEW RELEASES for A Creative Journey with Melissa. Normally, we have a new release EVERY second Wednesday of the month. However, in January, we will be going to the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Convention. So, we will NOT have a new stamp release in January. The CHA Convention is located in Anaheim, California and super close to Disneyland. We are looking forward to learning some great new things! One of the BEST things about this convention is you get to see the latest and greatest of the Craft and Hobby Industry. We are shown BEFORE they are released to the public! Instead of new stamp releases, we will be showing you the latest products BEFORE they are released to the public. It is an amazing show and we hope you will join us in our adventure. If you are creative, you are going to LOVE IT! It will feel like you are right there with us! To check out pictures from last year, go to our facebook photo album. You will see some AMAZING THINGS. We can't wait to share them with you! If you are interested in finding out if you qualify to be a CHA member visit Craft and Hobby Association. I am a Design Team member for A Creative Journey with Melissa. I am thrilled to be able to share these creations with you today! The new stamp releases are the Sentiments for all Occasions and the Sign Language Numbers - American Sign Language stamp sets. We are also highlighting our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper and Lower Case and Everyday Alphabet Outline Numbers and Symbols stamp sets throughout this hop as well. I am highlighting the Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper and Lower Case and Everyday Alphabet Outline Numbers and Symbols stamp set for this blog hop. Here are the projects I have created!

  1. Love your projects! I do like to create Christmas Cards, sent them out last year. This year, I'm not sending. Only making them for family.

    1. TY Rhoda♡I wish everyone appreciated handmade as much as we do!

  2. Your card, tag and gift card holder are so beautiful! I do make my cards every year.

    1. TY Sarah♡ AWESOME! I ♡ receiving handmade cards & gifts!

  3. Yes, I make about 80 hand made cards every year. I love the comments from my friends about how beautiful they are.

  4. SO Elegant!!! Love the color combos..I make my cards every year as there are members of my family that will refuse delivery on cards that feel store bought....LOL

  5. I am just starting this paper crafting. I have not yet made and sent my own cards, but that is my goal. I think handmade cards would be quite special keepsakes.

    1. Yes, Deborah they sure are... ♡ I hope you get to create some!

  6. No cards this year. Maybe next year. Love your projects.

  7. Very beautiful GC holder!!! Love the bright colors!!
    I do make my own cards for family members and others. Sometimes I reuse lovely fronts from cards I've received and remake them.
