Video Tutorial for 3D Flower

If you like this flower on the card... be sure to view the video I made and try making them. I called it the 3D Flower On the card I stamped the leaves and the sentiment... added layers with ink edging.. added some stickles and brads for the finishing touches..

Also below is a layout using the same flower only sized to 1 1/4" size... just slightly smaller.

Hard to see but I pierced the title on this layout and stitched it with embroidery thread. The border punch is Martha Stewart and doodle inked the lines around the photos.

With tears in my eyes I share with you today

Meljen's Digital Design has a fabulous idea to share with all their members.

It was to share memories.

I thought it was truly amazing idea and I just got the post that I won...

the Fisher Moose digi which was made in memory of

Melissa's Dad... Keith L Smith.

Everytime I use the digi I will now think of my DAD.

Reading it again brought tears to my eye. I'd like to share what I wrote about my dad.

"what a fabulous idea...my memories are of my dad who has been gone since June 1988... he was an amazing supportive friend, father and I am so glad my boys got to know their grandfather. He was always popping in, visiting, helping, giving advise, helping with something that needed fixing, and above all fun and loving. He is dearly missed."

Thanks all those at Meljen's Design.. it was amazing to share memories and I am sure everyone had fabulous memories of those close to the heart... for the rest of you out there take time today and remember someone close to your heart.
