I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Melissa Bove! I just love her shabby chic style, she would go all out to make every one of her creation as pretty as it could be, trust me, you will see it for yourself in her GD sample next!
Here's a little about Melissa in her own words:
My name is Melissa Bove. I love to do all kinds of paper crafting but especially card making and altered gift items. I live in southern NJ with my hubby and 2 children. Any free time I have, you can always find me in my craft studio. Crafting for family, friends, 1 of my DT's or just because! I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for The City Crafter Challenge Blog! Have fun making those "Gate Gards" I did.

This week's prize package is kindly sponsored by American Crafts
Here's a little about American Crafts - Steve and Alma Mitchell founded American Crafts in 1994 with their sons. Together, they quickly built the company into a business catering to the general crafting market. Initially specializing in pen manufacturing. American Crafts produced a variety of gel and ink pens and markers - customer favorites that are still part of the company's lineup today. In the late 1990s, the company transitioned to focus on creating innovative, well-designed products from the emerging scrapbooking industry. Since then, American Crafts acquired the Pebbles brand to offer an even wider variety of products to scrapbookers.
American Crafts is known for fresh, clean product design and friendly, personalized customer service. Products feature bright, vibrant colors and a contemporary feel, inspiring crafters to record their memories in a fun, sophisticated, and stylish way.
