Melanie's new set!



I have something exciting to share with you today!! Melanie Muenchinger asked me if I'd be interested in making a sneak peek project with her new set called Arranged with Love (oh my gosh, I was like "heck yeah!") Thanks again, Melanie!!

The set will be available for purchase at Gina K Designs on Thursday, June 25th at 10 p.m. CST. It includes this main floral image with the blank box and there are 10 coordinating greetings to stamp inside the box. Gorgeous!!



I stamped the image on watercolor paper in black craft ink, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then watercolored it with reinkers. The entire main image is up on foam tape.

Here are direct blog links so you can see more amazing projects with this new set: Gina, Carolyn, Cathy, Cindy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Jessica, Kurtis, Lee, Lynn, Theresa, Melanie, Gina K's CenterStage Spotlight designer Carla Suto, Melanie’s Guest Designer this month Selma Stevenson, and Dawn Lusk!

Too fun! Thanks for stopping by today!
