Meljen's Designs Anniversary Hop

(Please scroll down for the Simply Sassy Blog Hop)



Hello and thank you for stopping by for our anniversary blog hop!  We are celebrating Meljen's Designs' one-year anniversary. Melissa has been in business designing these adorable digi images for a year and we want you to join in our celebration.  You should have arrived here from Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  If you didn't come from the blog, you may want to go back and start there.

Our blog hop begins at 10 am EST on April 1 and ends at 6 am EST April 4.  Three random winners will each get 2 free images of their choice.  You must comment on everyone's blog along the hop to be eligible for a prize.  The winners will be announced Monday, April 4 on the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.

And Meljen's Designs is also having a 50% off sale.  You can check out all the fantastic images here.  


I made a tissue box cover using Sick Little Bear.  Isn't she the cutest little bear you've ever seen?  Well, it's a pink blanket, so I've decided this cutie is a she.  I think this would make such a great addition to a get-well basket for a sick loved one or friend.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I used a metallic pen on the water bottle stopper.  The side panels and top of the box were all embossed with my Sizzix Build A Bear embossing folder.  The blue trim around the lid was made with my EK Success paw print punch.  You can find the instructions and template for this tissue box over on Diane Z's amazing blog, PaperCookies


Your next stop on the hop is Audrey.  If you should happen to get lost along the way, here's the blog hop order:

  10. That little box is gorgeous. I have a few Meljen digistamps and my favourite is Girl and her Overalls, she's a bit of a tomboy and reminds me of me when I was young.

  51. This blog is related shopping. New ideas, quality designs, sensible colors, and no-nonsense prices. I want to like the bag, but something is keeping me from liking it. Unfortunate because I own so many of his bags. This is really nice blog…
