Thanks for making the video for us! You were amazing - as always!

Jan Marcham

Great video today! You always do a great job on your videos. I'll have to try one of your paper pieced flowers. Your card is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.


Loved the video! You always do a great job with the videos. No need for you to worry about them.
I just ordered Friends Till the End set and dies a few days ago. Now I'm even more anxious to receive them! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kathy McDonald

Melissa, I love LOOKING at your beautiful creations, but would never attempt to recreate one of them. . .until now. Your tutorial was WONDERFUL, and I can't wait to pull out my stamps, dies, and paper and get busy paper piecing! THANK YOU for the inspiration.

Kathy McDonald

You know, I just realized that I could get several cards out of these stamped flower, as you only use a few petals of each color for one card. It's almost like mass-producing, and you end up with a bunch of really beautiful cards!


Your MIM card is simply dreamy Melissa! Thank you for sharing this with us! Love the second card too, sweet little images!

Patty O'Malley

Your cards are always so pretty, Melis! Off to check out your tutorial...

I loved your paper piercing video. I tried to leave a comment and couldn't get past the security words. I did have one question: what was the liquid adhesive that you used to put your project together?


Very nice, paper pieced card! Great shabby colors and the vintage lace trim and cream felt add to the paper-pieced character of the card. Well done. Video is terrific, too. :)

Debbie Olson

Sweet Melissa--why worry? As if you could create anything that wasn't fabulous and dreamy? Great job, as always! {{{Hugs!}}}

Rebecca Ednie

The video was great and this was one of my favourite cards of yours of all time!


It's beautiful as always! Doing videos can be stressful,I hate the 15 minute time limit on youtube. LOL I don't have an editing program and my ipad does not let me trim the videos most of the time and I end up recording several times to get it right. LOL I'm thrilled that you're showing us how you create your magical cards. Remember to have fun. The more you do the easier it gets. Your card art makes my heart sing. Thanks so much for doing this weeks Make It Monday. I hope I get time to play. I'm daycare for my 11 month old teething, walking grand daughter. =D

Cresta Woodruff

Gorgeous cards! I'm off to check out that video!
