We showing off more of Melissa's work for The Crafty Scrapper today. Here are a few fun facts she shared about herself.
1. I LOVE to dance…all kinds of dance! I’m currently a Zumba fanatic and I just signed up for lessons in Lindy Hop, Two-Step, Triple-Two step, Jitterbug, Salsa, and Swing….every evening of the week. Call me crazy!
2. My husband has completely converted me into a geek-loving Sci-Fi lover. You would never know it…I’m still try coming to grips with it myself.
3. I love distress inks…you will probably see them, in some form or fashion, on everything I create. I love it so much, I’ve considered wearing it as part of my make-up routine. I really don’t personally need any more distressing though. DE-stressing, yes!
So fun! :) Here are more detailed photos of that amazing sneak peek we shared yesterday.
Be sure to check out the rest of the pages next time you're in The Crafty Scrapper! More new designs from our AMAZING design team coming soon.

I want to share one of my favorite projects I created for The Crafty Scrapper recently. I really love the bright Spring colors.
It's Maya Road ATC holder with 6 boxes.
This is my favorite box. I found this broken acrylic wing in my stash, and used it to represent the disease and healing process I have been going through.
I created a little banner to layer over this box on the end, and used some collaged patterned paper in the box.
I am really into purples and aqua right now.
This slot took a lot of work: stamping, painting, stitching, misting, adding in punches, etc. Definitely worth the final look.
I used sewing paper to create mini curtains for this box. Lots of details went into each mini slot. :)
I will be teaching this as a class on May 14th at The Crafty Scrapper. Hope to have you join me, or you can call the store and order a kit.
Creativity Belongs to all of us!

I recently designed this shabby fairytale jewelry box for The Crafty Scrapper using the new Magic Happens collection.
This is the top shelf with a removable photo tag. The picture is of my daughter on her second birthday. I added lots of Prima roses, and a Maya Road butterfly, Maya Road scroll, Maya Road window ledge, and MME buttons, and lots of bling!
The drawers to which I added Jenni Bowlin buttons and Maya Road resin flowers and a chipboard heart.
Hand-dyed seam binding and crepe paper tie on these sweet metal charms.
The hand-cut fairy is holding a removable wand that I painted gold and adorned with flowers, buttons, and ribbons.
I added sweet scalloped shingles to the roof when my friend Brook told me to go all out. :)
The back side of the tag has another picture of Sofie on her second birthday. New dress, and different expression. ;)
I painted the insides of the drawers a rich purple, and added a few flowers in as well. I just love the whole thing. :) I might teach it as a class in May.
Thanks for looking. Happy Scrapping! :)

I have been wanting to put this shadowbox together since first seeing it at The Crafty Scrapper. I am going to hang it in my bedroom.
I used a sweet and soft yellow fabric flower by Prima over the large photo, and a full set of buttons from Crate Paper's new Emma's Shoppe collection throughout the shadowbox.
The Crafty Scrapper now carries twine in a dozen colors so I used some to tie down this metal charm that I picked up from the store's vintage section. Then I added her photo, and outlined the photo with mini self-adhesive pearls.
I used 7 Gypsies apothecary jars and Martha Stewart glitter to display sugar and spice. I decided to make the sugar jar much smaller than the spice jar cuz' that's my girl. ;)
The silhouette card is by Jenni Bowlin, and I added trinkets from my stash. The "r" is for our last name, and is by Making Memories. The mini banner pieces are by Maya Road. I painted them gold, and outlined them with a fine-tipped black marker.
Every night (since she was born) when I put her to bed I tell her "you're the tiny love of my life." The crocheted flower is by Kaiser Craft and the resin blossom is from Maya Road.
I love this paper-doll cut out from Crate Paper. So sweet.
I love this photo of her. She was so cute in the red gingham outfit. I loved it because it came with that big floppy hat.
You can get a closer look at The Crafty Scrapper, and pick up a shadowbox for your larger scraps and photos. Thanks for looking! Dee Dee
