December New Stamp Release, Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Welcome to the monthly NEW RELEASES for A Creative Journey with Melissa. Before we start with the AMAZING projects our Design Team has in store, we have an update for January’s release. 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. We WILL however be sharing some pictures and fun stuff from the convention along with some giveaways from the show! The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Convention is located in Anaheim, California. Disneyland is within miles and a lot of people make it a family trip and come here for the convention. I have met people from all over the world. I took classes once with someone from Japan as well as Sweden. My husband, and I are going to be taking classes and are looking forward to learning some great new things! One of the BEST things about this convention besides the education 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. Regardless of what level of creativity you have, 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 CHA 2013 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 go HERE and let them know I sent you 🙂 Now, let’s get on with some more fun stuff!

If you came here  by chance, you are in luck! We are having a blog hop as well as giving away some prizes! I am Melissa Mueller, the owner of A Creative Journey with Melissa and I am thrilled to be able to share these creations with you today.

This is the new stamp releases are the Sentiments for all Occasions.


This is the second stamp set. It’s the Sign Language Numbers – American Sign Language stamp sets.


We are also highlighting our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet Outline stamp sets.

Everyday-Alphabet-Outline Upper and Lower Case            Everyday-Alphabet-Outline-Numbers and Symbols

Everyday-Alphabet-Upper Case and Emoticons                    Everyday-Alphabet-lower-&-numbers

I am highlighting the Sentiments for all Occasions and the Sign Language Numbers – American Sign Language stamp sets for this blog hop and for the first project! I created this for a young girl that is going to be turning 7 so I used the Sign Language Numbers stamp set to highlight the number seven. I also used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sentiments for all Occasions stamp set.

Happy Birthday

Here are the projects I have created using the
Sentiments for all Occasions stamp set.
