Guest Designer Melinda!

Greetings all,  Melinda here from Scrappinmelon. Hoping everyone had a very Merry Christmas filled with family, friends, good food and all the trimmings. I was so thrilled to find out that I was one of the lucky ladies chosen to be a guest designer for the day here on the Jaded Blossom blog.  A big THANK you to Michelle and Candace for the opportunity.

Since my day is after Christmas I chose to make my projects for New Years. I can't believe that we are going into 2015!!!!! So much has happened this year, time has just slipped away and the new year is upon us! I work at the hospital and will be working all the holidays including New Years Eve. So I decided to make a few fun treats for everyone at work.

I started by making these Midnight Kisses. I went to the dollar store and bought some Champagne glasses and filled them with silver and purple paper shred. Using part of the November release,  I then embossed a bunch of kisses with the Happy New Year, Happy Hour Candies and the Valentine Candies stamp sets.


Then using my Cameo I cut out the shadow layer for the couple on The Perfect Match stamp set. Next I attached them to a pick and placed them in the glass with the kisses. The sentiment is from the Happy New Year set and it's a perfect match for my couple.




Then for some fun, I used the gusset bags and filled them with beads, some more kisses and a noise maker. For the topper I used the Scallop Slider and Topper Die and made my pattern paper by embossing the Holiday Treat Tags.

Next I cut out the shadow layer for the mask from the Happy New Year set, colored it, gave them a Wink of Stella, some Stickles and popped it on top.



I used the Happy New Year stamp set for the sentiment on the insert for the bag.


There are endless ideas using Jaded Blossom products, I love being able to see everyone's crafty take on all the products and of course I love getting my happy mail!!!!!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and cheers to finding lots of time to craft in the upcoming year!
