Deal of the Day!

Deal of the Day! April Constant Campaign
Love a great deal? How about 30 days of great deals? During the month of April, you have the opportunity to score a deal every day with Close To My Heart! What deals are we talking about? Each day during April, while supplies last, we’ll feature a random grab bag filled with current and retired Close To My Heart products available for purchase at a major discount. To grab your bag, simply place any current, full-priced item in your online shopping cart through your Online Business Address and you will be eligible to purchase as many grab bags as you wish (while supplies last)! Grab bags will be featured at five different price points throughout the month, ranging from  $55 CAD to $160 CAD. Some grab bags will contain product with more than DOUBLE the retail value of the price you pay! Grab bags will be available for 24 hours starting at 3 pm MDT each day and only while supplies last—so visit often and early! Remember that grab bag tiers will be featured on a random schedule throughout the month, so seize the opportunity to purchase from the grab bag tier you’re interested in when it becomes available because it might not come around again!
Dates: Offer valid April 1, 2015 (3:00 pm MDT)–April 30, 2015 (8 pm our time).

To take advantage of this amazing offer I will be setting up an EZ INVITE order. Go to my website at www.suetaylorhill.ctmh.com and CLICK on the order!

Fun Friday #10!

Hey Everyone! It is a Fun Filled Friday today with a new Sketch and Colour Challenge over at Your Next Stamp!
Today we have a new sketch and new colours to work with!

This month I decided I would work with the colour challenge because I loved the combination of the purples with the green and grey! Not a colour palette I would normally go for so I had to think about it a bit but I am happy with the end result!
Here is my card for the Challenge:
The stamps I chose to use in my card are called: Flowers for You and WhatNot Sentiments

Check out this weeks Challenge and what the other DT Members have made for you! 
Have a wonderful weekend!

My Last DT Day with Meljens!

It is a very sad day for me as this will be my last DT Day as a Meljen's Design Team Member! The DT and website will close up shop at the end of the month because Melissa is moving on toward bigger and better things! I thought it would only be fitting to make a Thank You card for my last DT posting because I am honoured and thankful that Melissa chose me to be a part of this wonderful team 2 years ago!
I chose Thank You Teddy as my image and coloured him with Copic markers, mounted it on patterned papers from Close To My Heart and coloured cardstock (CTMH). I then finished it off with ribbon.(old CTMH)
Check out all the images in the SHOP and be sure to pick some up! Melissa will be featuring her artwork in her new Etsy Shop very soon!
Thank YOU Melissa and all my DT Sisters for the great two years...it has been fantastic!!

Today marks the March DT Dare day!
 It’s a fun monthly challenge for the YNS design team to showcase more fabulous projects using the new release products! 
March has been an amazing time over at Your Next Stamp with all
 the new releases of stamps and beautiful dies! Did you check them out?
 It was really hard to choose what was my favourite this month!

March's Challenge is to use Spots and Stripes on our projects.
 When I saw this sentiment " The sugar made me do it" I knew I had to use it on a card! So I paired the stamp set Sprinkle Happy Easter with the new Jessica and Her Horse Set.

Go to the YNS Blog to see all the wonderful projects that the DT have made.
And check out all the new products including the stamp set above HERE!
 If you comment you could win a new release stamp set of your choice!
Thanks for taking the time to look!

New Changes Over at Meljens!

New Changes happening over at Meljen Designs....Melissa has decided to close up shop and venture on to bigger and better things! This means the end of my journey as a Design Team member with them.....It was Melissa who helped me with my very first Digital stamp and she has made some beautiful artwork ever since. I am very blessed that she picked me to be a part of her DT almost 2 years ago...it gave me great tools, I met a lot of great people and had a load of fun!
Thanks Melissa and I wish you the very best,

SHOP CLOSING - New Direction for Meljen's!

Meljen's Designs Shop is Closing!

EXCITING CHANGES FOR MELJEN'S DESIGNS - New shop, HUGE sale, CUSTOM design work and more!

First of all, I am doing a big, HUGE sale - 50% off everything in my shop through March.* This is because I'm moving back to Etsy and taking on a new art adventure. I won't be making digital stamps any more, but I will be carrying some favorites with me and packaging them up for you over there for a while. Keep an eye on my Etsy shop, any new adventures I come up with will happen there!

I am also opening up CUSTOM design work! This means if you've wanted me to draw something for you in my style, now is the time! I don't know how long I will be doing this for, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you're interested.

To help move things forward in my new artistic journey, I need to close my current shop, my design team, our challenges and my facebook group. I will keep them open through March so you can collect and say / do anything you'd like before they close down.

I hope you'll join me in my new adventures! I have a NEW Instagram account (@meljensdesigns) - I've been playing with it a bit and it's quite fun! I hope you'll follow me there, and keep in touch with me on Facebook. I'll still be 'Meljen's Designs' - just taking a step forward down a new yellow brick road. :-)

(HUGS) Love you all, my beautiful & talented friends!

 It will be a two week celebration featuring over 20 of their favorite sponsors with 3 cupcake inspirations in 3 inspiration posts during the week of March 1 -7 and offering 3 prize packages for 3 randomly selected winners.

 To feature YNS stamps I created this card for the Colour Challenge:
I used a new stamp set called Jessicas Cupcakes and coloured them with Copic markers. Then I adhered it onto different coloured cardstock and onto a textured white card base.

To join in this great event go to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog
