Spotlight Sunday

Hello Fantabulous Friends, and Happy Sunday!

Are you ready for Christmas? I cannot believe Christmas is only one week away. I am almost ready, I just have a few things left to do.

Today we are spotlighting Melissa from Doxie Mel Designs. Melissa was a Wednesday Winner with this fun treat box and turkey tag.

Before we peek at some of Melissa's projects from her blog, let's get to know her crafty side!

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
I started scrapbooking when my daughter was born. I really wanted to scrapbook my child's life instead of handing her a shoe box of pictures.

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?
I would have to say my favorite projects are mini-albums and seasonal decorations for my home.

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
I enjoy shading the edges with ink.

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
My favorite Cricut cartridge is Create A Critter. I love those cute animals and the layering on this cartridge is fantastic.

5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
I enjoy gardening, visiting Disneyland on the weekends with my family, and walking my dachshund who would rather be sleeping.

Now let's take a look at some of Melissa's projects!

This is an adorable mini book that Melissa made. The first picture is the cover and the next two pictures are of the inside pages of the mini. Isn't it just so cute?!

This is another mini that Melissa made to capture her daughters' school memories. I love how it opens from both sides.

I just smiled when I saw this cute doggie card. And the sentiment fits so well!

Make sure to stop by Melissa's blog, Doxie Mel Designs, and see more of her wonderful creations!

Stay tuned as Melissa is our Guest Designer tomorrow for Challenge Me Monday.

This will be our last challenge for the year, as the FCCB will be taking a Christmas break. This is also my last post as the Spotlight Sunday Hostess. It's been so much fun getting to know so many wonderful paper crafters! Stay tuned for a new Design Team member to take over Spotlight Sunday.

Happy Crafting!

  2. Melissa I love your work. Thought I was following you but wasn't so now I am. Love the mini books especially the school one since I am a retired teacher.
    Thanks Sabrina for another great spotlight.
