Happy Monday! Today we have a wonderful project to share with you from design team member Emeline Seet. She says:
"This clipboard was altered with the idea of creating a personal mood board. It holds several piece of my favorite pattern papers of different sizes and is a convenient way to organize loose pattern papers."
We especially love how stricking the flag strip of black patterned paper is on this project. Emeline used the 'B' side of our "At First Blush (PA404)" to create her flag.
Thanks for visiting with us at Melissa Frances today!
My background paper is from the Classic Elegance collection ("At first Blush (PA404)" and "Bits of Paper (PA403)") . The colors and patterns tie in so perfectly with The Sweet Life. And I love using a Melissa Frances vellum envelope whenever possible, as they create such a soft background layering effect.
We always love seeing how the Melissa Frances products are being used. Today's project share comes to us from Patty O'Malley who used the oldie but goodie "C'est la Vie" paper collection to craft this 50th birthday card. For her patterned paper Patty used "Hydrangeas" (PA386). With its beautiful taupe background with faint text with an overlay of purple/violet hydrangeas, it is a truly classic design.
Thank you for sharing with us and the Melissa Frances blog readers Patty!

We've been telling you that Melissa Frances will be in NORWAY September 20-21 teaching at the Stemple Scraps convention in Lillestrom! This will be Melissa's first visit to teach in Norway and she is looking forward to meeting paper crafters from that corner of the world!
This is photo is the preview from the Shabby Chic Holiday House that Melissa will be leading. Here is the description:
Description: ‘Tis the season to design and decorate a magical shabby-chic style Christmas house. Join Melissa Frances as she walks you through the easiest way to build and decorate her large reproduction chipboard house. She will give you a ton of great tips and techniques as she shares how to cover the houses, how to dye bottle brush trees, and how to make a crepe paper tree. Students will receive a generous class kit and will have plenty of crepe paper left over to make a small forest of crepe paper trees at home after the class!!
Today we have a beautiful card from design team member Anne Kristine Holt to share with you. She used our Classic Elegance Collection to make this feminine birthday card for a friend. The main paper on the card is "A night at the Theatre" (PA407) which is a fun collaged paper, so while it looks like Anne has layered several papers in the background, the layering is all done on the patterned paper, which makes it easy to create a fast card that still looks intricate.
