"Love is in the air and what better way to show someone you care than with a handmade card. I used the Little Darlings collection to create a card just perfect for Valentine’s Day. The versatility of this collection made it easy for me to create this one-of-a-kind card. The sketch offers you various options like flowers and bows. You can make your card more elaborate or keep it simple. Here, I kept my design elements simple but by adding an intricate die cut heart it changes the entire look. You can easily add other shapes and sentiments to create a card that is sure to delight." ~ Robin Shakoor
Remember Sam Lee's 'work in progress' at Journal Club? Here's the finished work and it's beautiful. Sam surprised herself because she didn't think she could draw like this . . . we both agreed Judy has been a tremendously positive influence!

From Dave Brethauer's blog at Memory Box . . . be sure to watch the video. Dave offers a quick tip on pulling paper out that stuck in the die after cutting. And then when you see the other blog posts from Memory Box, you're going to want to fill out more pink sheet orders if you didn't order these dies in the order that just went in!
100 Paper Rose Topiary Video
There you go! A nice carpet of moss at the base and you have a low maintenance topiary to put in your studio. I'd like to try this project in other shades - maybe all white - or a deep crimson red? And maybe add a paper butterfly or two...

Old Favorite, New Papers
"One of my favorite Memory Box stamps is the Open Poppy (F703). I use it in a lot of my classes because it is just so much fun to color. I have watercolored it, used Copic markers, paper-pieced it, and colored it with pencils. For today's card, I both paper-pieced it and colored it with colored pencils and gamsol. I just love the new papers from the Viola line. They are just so spring-like and happy. To finish the card, I added the Just a Note Combo saying (B1852). Here is a close up of the coloring and the paper underneath:"
