BLOG CANDY! (Melanie's Munchies*)


Okay, blog candy time! To be entered in the drawing for this "candy", leave a comment on THIS post telling me either: your favorite thing I've posted on my blog, a new hippy sighting(I wanna make sure I see them all!), and/or a GUESS about my next stamp release! I'll do a random drawing on Monday morning, 1/28, and the winner will receive the following**:

SU! Silver Eyelets (approx 200)


2 jumbo paperclips


2 SU! Pretties Kit Hatpins and clear beads


6 assorted SU! Antique Brass hodgepodge buckles


10 mini jeweler's bags (for treat holders or storing embellishments)


3 projects using Just So Hippy(one includes jelly bellies!)


2 cards using Papertrey stamps


20 4"x5 1/4" precut sheets of DP in assorted prints(including more not shown here), perfect for matting A2 cards


40 scallop punches in assorted SU! CS colors


10 Cuttlebug die cut hearts in SU! CS colors


55 self adhesive rhinestones


3 yards of SU! 5/8"grosgrain (1 yd each of celery, rose, and blue)


plus a couple other little surprises not pictured here...!


(If this prize pack doesn't excite you, sorry! Please go easy on me, it's my FIRST blog candy, this is new to me!)


Thanks for playing, and have a great weekend!

QUICK (Hip) TIP: Use the little flower or pierced heart from the Just So hippy set like a little logo motif on the back of your handstamped cards just above your name when you sign them! Super CUTE!

PS My Palette pads came today, so I will be posting the project I've been SO EXCITED about TOMORROW!

*That was Donna's cute idea! :) But please note, most of these things are NOT edible! ;)

I love your Dr, Feelgood card and your bandaids. but mostly I love how you add extra stuff to your cards to make them pop,( adding suckers to the tails of the giraffe, and how you add the stamp into the window box, very clever!!!! Love your blog, and I love the candy!!!

Lana D said...

I LOVE the card you did with the circle and the giraffe! It is so cute and pretty simple. The tutorial was very easy to follow..
thank you from your technically challenged followers, by the way! :) The blog candy looks absolutely YUMMY! Thanks for the chance!

Linda said...

You had a card that was in pink and gray with a monkey. It made me laugh when I saw it. I really need to buy that stamp because it would be good to send a card using it to someone who needs a pickup.

Elizabeth said...

Your projects are all so cute that it is very hard to decide, but I LOVE the hippo card with the jelly bellies. (2nd place would probably be the box of chocolove!) You are so talented! I bought those stamps and haven't had a chance to use them, but I hope to change that this weekend!!

kimberly said...

I really like the window box of chocolate, and the ideas that you gave for your extras!

Sus said...

My guess for the next stamp release is a set of accessories and backgrounds to coordinate with the giraffes, hippos and monkeys! (wishful thinking?)

CAKVD said...

One of my favorite posts of yours was about your favorite things. I love seeing what other people love to use. It helps me determine if I should buy something I've had my eye on or not.
Thanks for a chance at the great candy!

Wow to you for giving away all that blog candy! You already have 36 comments. . .you go girl! My favorite item you have on this blog (that's a hard one because i really like all of your stuff even though I don't leave comments ;)) would have to be the giraffe box and the tutorial that goes along with it.

Pegg S said...

I thought the Love-aid post was so great and clever!! I would never have thought to do that. It looks so cute! Great candy!!

Hmmm it's a toss up. I LOVE both the triangle box and the hippo treat box. They're just so darn cute! Since I have a 4yo they're pErfect! Thanks! Dana

Its so hard to pick my favorite thing but I'll try (i love all your posts). giraffe with colluzzle. This is the project that made me order this stamp set. I am the proud owner of "just so hippy" and I hope to post something soon to SCS. I hope your next release is dogs!

bk.registration@sbcglobal.net

Linda SS said...

You are such a great designer! My favorite is the hippo & I really love the gray and red card with the double hippos & appreciated that you told us how you made the second one. Of course anything with jellybeans are also at the top of my list too:)

Suzanne said...

I loved your instructions in how to get more out of your stamp set. How to turn that little square into all sorts of fun stuff and how to make heart into a 3-D image. Such great tips you offer.

Colleen said...

I love the way you have shown how to draw in order to make your stamps more versatile. Very cool idea!

Angie said...

I don't know if I can pick on efavorite thing... I really like the little tutorials on how you make things, like the triangle box and the hippo candy holder that you're giving away in this candy! And I'll guess about your new release too... Is it more animal stamps? Hippy's friends? That would be fun! Thanks for the opportunity for the blog candy, I think it's a GREAT stash!

Anonymous said...

I just recently put your blog into my favs and view it daily! Awesome work! I especially liked the giraffe box (I love giraffes!), the hippo treat bag, and that darling doctor card! I never thought to use the label from Nichole's set as a band-aid! So creative! Nice blog candy! Thanks for all the inspiration you provide for me!

Just one more week and I will join it in Florida where it waits for me. :-) And, I can't wait to play with what you've got coming next shortly thereafter!

Judie C said...

My favorite (and it's hard to choose) was the January 4 giraffe with 2 flowers tied to its tail and one in its mouth. Runner up is definitely the green hippo/jelly beans.

I like the giraffe candy box - 1) because it has the giraffe that I love 2) because it is white, red and pink (a color I love now) and 3) because I was amazed at how such a nice finish product was so easy to make! You are so creative.

Erin K said...

Your blog and projects are awesome, so it was hard to pick my very favorite ... it would have to be the hippo treat box!! Your BLOG CANDY is FABULOUS!! What a Great Selection!! Judy

Annette said...

I love all the samples you have shown using your stamp set. You made it just come to life and I love that along with every sample. My fav is the hippo goodie pouch - where the circle is punched out and you see the candy. You stamped on the clear paper so his tail shows. So cute!
Thanks for all the ideas.

Kathy W said...

Choose only one favorite thing from your blog? Hard to do! I love the Dr. Feelgood card with the bandaids, but my most favorite thing is the detail you put into tutorials and "how-to's", especially on drawing images. For those of us (like me) who feel drawing-challenged, the perspective lesson and samples are great. Thanks for the chance to win a very generous and wonderful blog candy package.

Char in So Cal said...

WOWZA on the YUMMY blog candy selection!!

I think one of my FAVE things you have posted on your blog was the LOVE- AIDES!!

I have 3 small children that LIVE in bandaides (even when they don't have a bad ouchie) and the ones with designs on them are their 1st choice. With your adorable bandaide creation idea, I can now make decorative bandaides in BULK and hopefully save a few bucks by not buying the store-made designs. (I'm not cheap.... I'm thrifty... wink!!)

Thanks for the op at some FAB goodies!

I like the way you showed to make the square & heart into 3-D looking shapes! I like the triangle box, too. I'm just now reading THIS post, so the next one is already posted. I love, love, love the onesie outfit. I have a friend having a baby shower on Saturday & it's her first boy! Now I know what to make for her!

Of course, about 7 months ago, I suspect she was more into the Dr. Feelgood style than the onesies style. :)

I love your blog. I just found it today and I really love the baby onsies. You are a very talented lady. Adding you to google reader now. :0)

I am loving the onsies! I am TTC right now and you just made that clock inside of me gong louder! Should I conceive anytime soon, I will make sure I buy the set and then buy onsies from you!

So hard to pick ONE favorite thing you've posted - but I think it would have to be that giraffe you made where instead of a string to the balloon from his tail you used a sentiment stamp.

I loved your ideas on how to use the box and the heart stamps - I like to find as many creative uses for my stamps. I'm so glad you started a blog b/c I kept looking after I saw your work on PTI! Thanks for sharing. Heather J. mahoney_heather@hotmail.com

I am new to your BLog - and I must say that after looking your work over, I just love all of it. The little pouch/box with the hippo is reallly cute - the one titled Cheap and Easy. It is one I think I'll case and copy!!!
