Melissa Frances peeks...

I know it's still summer here in the states, so it seems strange to be making holiday items, but I have a little sneak peek to show you of the new line by Melissa Frances called Deck The Halls! Here I've used the new calendar mini album, new die cuts, new journaling words and some of the papers from this new line, which is debuting at the Craft and Hobby Show right now and will be available for ordering soon.
I also added some fun Melissa Frances tinsel, and just wrapped it around in a circle, then topped it with some pom pom trim over the die cut star. Love the trim, reminds me of little snowballs. Perfect for a winter layout. The pom pom trim comes in a few different colors.

I've also used some of the Deck the Halls tags, pearls, crepe paper, resin stars and the green glitter letters, all by Melissa Frances as well.

Here I used the new line on a layout of my girls when they were little in their holiday dresses!
I punched a couple of smaller stars to match the larger die cut star, then stitched on them and added some white paint to tone the brightness down a bit, also stitched on some of the die cuts. I'm so glad Melissa is adding some red to her lines, it's my favorite color!

If you are headed to the Craft and Hobby Show this week, please stop by the Melissa Frances booth #1230. Also please visit the Melissa Frances blog for more peeks. Any questions about the products used, please ask! :)

I love this collection! Adorable little album with all the wonderful little touches. Love the stars. The layout is beautiful. Love that puffy flower in the frame.
I hope you had a great trip home :)

Thank you, Daniela! In the frame, I wrapped some of the Melissa Frances fringed crepe paper around in a circle to create the flower.

Oh yes, we had a wonderful time visiting my family...I feel so refreshed and revived again! Moms always have a way of doing that for you. :)
