Wild AND Fabulous Blog Hop




Welcome to Melanie Makes and the WILD AND FABULOUS Blog Hop!!! Today we are sharing some super fun and super girly projects with you!

If you've come from visiting Kassidy's Inking It Up Crazy thanks for hopping along!! If you're just visiting and would like to start from the beginning you can go to http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com. You will want to check out each blog for some great ideas and some sweet blog candy. 

For those who know me, making a girly project is actually a difficult task for me. Most of my projects involve making cards, gifts and party decorations for my two boys.  I believe God has blessed my with boys, so I don't have to navigate into the world of pink.  My sister on the other hand has four beautiful girls and I am lucky to be their Aunt.  So today's inspiration if for one of my nieces who is a girly girl. 


For this project, I decided to use the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge that came with my Gypsy.  I choose the cute little purse and sized it to fit 3" x 3" note cards.  I used the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge for the flower along with some EK Success flower punches.  I also made a set of four 3" x 3" coordinating note cards & envelopes.  I think this would make the perfect gift for any girl big or small.


Thanks for stopping by the Wild AND Fabulous Blog Hop.  Finally for my blog candy I will be giving away this decorative "Thanks for all that you do!" note pad.   In order to qualify please become a follower and leave me a comment.  I announce a winner on Monday.


Your next stop is Hailey. Check it out and see what she has to show you today!!!

And here’s the order of the hop in case you need it along the way!

  9. Melanie,

    I love the little purse. I had no clue that was on Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I will have to look through my handbook and see what other treasures are on there.
