A Creative Journey With Melissa: December's New Release!

Welcome to the monthly NEW RELEASES for A Creative Journey with Melissa. Normally, we have a new release Every second Wednesday of the month however in January, we will be going to the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Convention so we will NOT have a new stamp release in January. The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA)Convention is located in Anaheim, California and super close to Disneyland.  We are looking forward to learning some great new things! One of the BEST things about this convention is you get to see the latest and greatest of the Craft and Hobby Industry are shown BEFORE they are released to the public! Instead of new stamp releases we will be showing you the latest products BEFORE THEY ARE released to the public. It is an amazing show and we hope you will join us in our adventure. If you are creative, you are going to LOVE IT! It will feel like you are right there with us! To check out pictures from last year, go to our Photo Album. You will see some AMAZING THINGS and we can't wait to share them with you! If you are interested in finding out if you qualify to be a CHA member visit CHA.

 I am a Design Team member for A Creative Journey with Melissa and I am thrilled to be able to share these creations with you today. The new stamp releases are the Sentiments for all Occasions and the Sign Language Numbers - American Sign Language stamp sets. We are also highlighting our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet stamp sets throughout this hop as well. I am highlighting the Sentiments For All Occasions stamp set for this blog hop.

Here are the projects I have created using the Sentiments For All Occasions stamp set.

Because Christmas is coming up, I created gifts and items quickly whipped up as gifts with the stamp sets.
My first project is a Tea Purse gift that has pockets in the inside and slipped in two tea packets for my friend's Christmas gift. I stamped the Sentiments For All Occasions stamp on the bottom of my tea carrier, under my square diecut.

My next project is a Gift Card Holder I dressed in a Shabby Chic style for my Mom, who loves anything Shabby Chic!

I stamped the Sentiments For All Occasions sentiment on a tag right where the receivers name goes. And when you pull the top up, you see this.
