Callie's Scrapbooking!

It's Callie's last week as a guest designer for us here at Meljen's Designs :(  So sad!!  It's been so great having her with us again, but who knows, maybe she'll be back again sometime!  :)

This week, Callie has been busy making some wonderful scrapbook pages!  Check these out!

I love the school of fish here, such a great, simple layout!

The fun paper and fun bright fish on this page make me smile!  Love the little scene in the corner (and of course the cute kiddos!)

I really need to spend more time at Callie's house!  I think her Hubby needs to make ME one of these burgers sometime!  She's one lucky gal, isn't she?

Thanks for joining us this month, Callie!  I've LOVED sharing your designs with everyone!

Guest Designer, Callie!

I've got a sweet card to share with you from our dear friend, Callie today!

But first - I asked Callie What Inspires Her and When her mojo is lacking, how does she jumpstart it?  Here's her answer:

Country nitch is what I would call my style.  I'm inspired just by the things around me. I'll see a bird, or something in the field and I'm inspired to create.  My kids are a huge inspiration to me.  When I'm lacking mojo I like to grab a big steaming cup of joe and blog hop through some of my favorite ladies... looking for something to CASE and get me going.

Here's a wonderfully embossed card that she created just for you

Thanks for sharing, Callie!  I really love the colors and embossing on this card!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Flashback Friday SHOWCASE!

HOWDY PEEPS!  My apologies for the lack of Flashback Friday posts of late!  I had been traveling on holiday the past few weekends, so I let things slip a bit!  Without further ado, here are some beautiful creations by some of our UBER FABULOUS designers! 

First, Robbie used this week's freebie on the front of her card,
(for her grand-daughter, aw!!)
but inside she used an oldie, but goodie image by Melissa.......
Front: Using this week's Freebie!

Melissa A. used our sweet Espresso Yourself for her lovely card!

Darsie designed this lovely card using Sweet Lace Heart....

Robin made this one yummy using Cupcake Mouse....

Cheryl's talent is shockingly OBVIOUS in this
beautifully stitched creation using Teeny Mouse Hugs...

Di always delights us with her beauties, this one using Firefly Fairy...

And finally, another sugary sweet card by Robin,
this one using Teddy Cookie...

I hope you found some inspiration today to motivate over to your crafty space and get creating!  See all of these and MORE at Melissa's corner of the Whimsy Stamps Store!  (Don't forget that Melissa is having a sale on her digital images NOW, so take advantage of it while you can!)

Enjoy your day!
