    One of my all-time favorite videos, Melissa! A friend gave me some of the Bold Blossom sheets & I’ve been afraid of ruining them. Thank you for the inspiration which gives me courage to go create!

    Thank you for a lovely video with beautiful cards to inspire me to be free with my stamping. I love being told that it’s okay to go outside the lines because that’s my comfort zone!

    Melissa – This was such a fun video. I like your style so much, flowers and lace, and lots of focus points. If you’re having trouble with the purples in water coloring, try light purple or a pinky purple with mint on the outer edge of the flowers. Works for me. Happy Mother’s Day!

    Would never have thought of adding stamped flourishes and they really help make these cards stunning. Gorgeous, Melissa!

    I love the stream of thought Melissa has in her videos! It seems just like she would think to herself as she’s designing a card vs a praticed demonstration. I especially like when she sort of whispers to herself…I think you should try and use the phrase “a happy little tree” in the next video. 🙂

    Very pretty cards, I liked seeing them come together.

    Hi Melissa, Creating a card is relaxing to me, a de-stressor. So is listening to your video tutorials. I enjoy your style and calming voice. Plus you give great tips. Always appreciate your sharing! All the best to you on Mother’s Day 🙂
