Melissa - Farewell & Thank You!

It's been such a pleasure having Melissa on our team. Her work is bright and cherry and packed with fun! We've loved adorning our walls with her work and we know that we'll continue to follow her crafting journey.


Hello it's Melissa here for the last time!  My Design Team term has come to an end,  and this is my final post to say goodbye, thank you and to reflect on the awesome time I've had here at Artful Crafts.

I've been on the DT since August 2013, and I still remember screaming and jumping with joy when I received an email from Liz telling me I'd made it.  Receiving the packages of DT goodies was so exciting, I think courier drivers must wonder what comes in the pizza box that makes me dance!!!

I've loved providing inspiration on the Artfull Crafts blog, and the following are my favourite projects.

A bright and colourful layout documenting my youngest eating a homemade muffin for the first time!

My birthday with photos taken by my 8 year old son.

A home decor piece for Christmas.  I still display this every year since I made it.

A mini album about my daughters role in her first school Christmas show.

A layout about my oldest daughters love for the library and books.

I adore colour, and this layout was perfect against the rather neutral photo of my son's first day of school in 2014 (aged 6).

A layout about my girls and their cute posing for my camera.

 And my favourite layout of all, where I attempted a minimal design (well for me anyway)!

You can continue to see my creations on my blogInstagram and on my YouTube Channel.  I'm currently designing for Clique Kits Kit Club,  Lets Get Sketchy Challenge blog and The Crafty Maven Getaway.

I've been so blessed to have been on the team for over 2 years.  I just want to thank Liz for giving me the opportunity, it has truly been a dream come true.  I've loved working with all of the other lovely ladies on the Design Team, and I wish the new Design Team all the best.  Thanks also to the faithful Artfull Crafts followers and readers of the blog.  

Love & abundant blessings

  1. I'm a big fan of your layouts. I purchased the Kaisercraft 'Happy Snaps' collection after seeing your lovely creations. It's still my favourite collection. Thanks for the inspiration.
