  20. How refreshing to see the use of spellbinders in this way - showing people how you use them with your design papers instead of just plain papers - I do like those too, but its just nice to see something else too.

    Hope these go down well with the German crafters (not sure if you've been there yet or not).

  21. Mel I purchased a gypsey along with cricut almost a year ago and have yet to use it as I'm completely lost. Cannot find instructions and it is never mentioned on C+C. Any ideas or classes?

  22. we can make such designs on Plastic Cards to promote them it will look good.

  23. How come it's taken me so long to see these??!!Useless I am :-) They're stunning Mel. Your designs know no limits. Superb! x

  24. hi

    i emailed create and craft to ask if Mel holds classes and if so, where, when and cost.



  25. Easy to make!!!

    Wow...This is what i have been looking for and you have done a great job. Beautiful cards.

  26. love your cards and you are very talented, I see a very determined lady who does the best with what she's presented with.
    Well done

  27. Hi Mel

    Can you help me please, the new EK Success Corner Punch set that you demo-ed on CnC a couple of weeks ago, I bought these but I am having trouble in working out the matting sizes for the 2 squares - what allowance should I be using I have tried 0.5cm smaller for the second square and also 1cm but neither of these appear to work. Do you have any tips please.

    Hugs Hazel

  28. Hi Hazel
    Yes, the smaller pice needs to be 5 mm smaller than the larger piece. X

  29. Thanks Mel I did try this but they didn't look as if they laid right so thought I had better check. Thanks again. Hugs Hazel

  30. Hi Mel, Can you please tell me what the white pencil shader is called that you use for shading on the Zentangle also the pencil you use I have got the Sakura pens. I am new to Zentangle but have watched you on C&C.I would appreciate your help. I love all your shows.
