Good Evening Everyone,
It is with a sad heart :( that we at Paper Craft Planet Design Team says goodbye to one of our Super Novas - Melanie Muenchinger. Melanie has been part of the Design Team since Paper Craft Planet was created and she is one of my stamping idols and an amazing source of inspiration and creativity. With mounting family and designing commitments, she needs to scale back on her other teams to focus on illustrating for Gina K Designs. But since this is not really “goodbye”, the PCP ladies are throwing a little going away "Best Wishes" bash in the form of a blog hop today featuring two sets designed by Melanie: "A Year of Leaves” or“School, Sports, Spirit!”And it wouldn't be a party without some party favors right? Well, Gina K is sponsoring a challenge this week on Paper Craft Planet with a chance to win one of Melanie’s newest sets! Upload a new project you create with a "Best Wishes" or good luck theme to the PCP gallery by Monday night 10PM EST, with the tag GKDBW. (Here is a tutorial on adding pictures to the gallery, if you need it.)
"A Year of Leaves”:
This one is for you Melanie: I wish for you all BLESSINGS all the time - for you and for your beautiful family! You are such a sweeeeet heart - and we wish you all of life's wonderful blessings my friend!!! I used Lynn's sketch this week over at PCP for this card (SK090509) and realized after I made it that it didn't really follow the sketch afterall... lol! sorry Lynn - I can't follow directions :)
The sentiment in this card reads: "What the Caterpillar calls the end of the World, the Master calls a Butterfly..." how absolutely beautiful! Love that sentiment! I used the SCS sketch this week for this card - and changed it up also... what is it about not following sketches and me?
Here is one more card - I just loved the sentiment which reads: The Fall of a Leaf is a Whisper to the Living. How beautiful is that sentiment... love it! And since I can't follow directions with sketches - I decided to not use one for this card - lol!
Please see more beautiful samples the Supernovas created with these new sets of Melanie:Melanie's Blog for more of her amazing work!!!
