A Card- to remind someone special that you are missing them.
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 Craft and Hobby Association (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 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 photo album You will see some AMAZING THINGS and we can't wait to share them with you!

  1. Wonderful projects! I love your ornaments! My fave things to alter are clipboards. Make wonderful gifts and decorations!

  2. Your projects are so beautiful! I like to alter boxes!

  3. Wow, there are so many things that can be altered. I think my current favorite to alter is bottle caps.

  4. I am really new to all of this, but I am currently altering a book to make a junk journal. I am using file folders for my signatures and will bind them into the book cover.

  5. Boxes are my favorite thing to alter. There are many shapes and sizes out there to have fun with.

  6. Such lovely projects!! LOVE the elegant font on the sentiments that goes so well with your gorgeous work!!

    My fave thing to alter probably doesn't is cardstock. I love to dry emboss it and then heat emboss the daylights out of it!!! Ha. I don't do too much altered work, although I have redone some boxes for gift packaging.
