Twisted Paper Flower Tutorial

Good Monday Morning!  Hope your week is getting off to a good start!  My day will be filled with lots of errands and laundry and Suzy Homemaker Stuff.  You know the drill! 

Chaun asked me if I had a tutorial for the flowers I used on my card posted on Friday for the JFF Color Challenge....I personally don't have a tutorial for anything.(I never felt like I knew enough to do one)...but you can go here to see where I learned it...http://www.creatingkeepsakesblog.com/blog/2009/10/30/special-guest-blogger-tia-bennett/  This is the tutorial I used.  I had been seeing these flowers a lot and thought they were beautiful so I Googled it and this is what I came up with.  I love these flowers and they are so easy to make.  When I finish one I spray it with Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and smush it down.  When it dries, it is so pretty.    Good luck Chaun!!  Usually, I visit lots of blogs and youtube and find tutorials and watch them.  That is how I learn.   I live in a rural area and we only have 1 craft store and there are no classes to my knowledge.  Here is a blog that I visit daily...http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/
Beate is a very talented lady and has numerous tutorial videos listed on her blog.  I use a lot of the techniques that she shows in her videos.  Check her out!

I don't have a card to post today, My weekend was spent gardening.  Our veggies are up and doing well.  Tomatoes are blooming and have been caged.  Cukes are blooming, and the beans are putting out runners.  We are so happy to have had rain on our garden this Spring.  Usually, once we plant it just stops raining, but this year we have been so fortunate. 

I hope you have a wonderful week!  I'll be back in a day or so with another card for you.  I'm going to have to find a new way to store them....I have several and need to be able to store without cramping them.  Any ideas?

Glenda, you are so sweet! Thanks for the shout-out!
Sounds like your garden is doing well. We have only a tiny garden patch. But I think it's in a spot that's too shady. Nothing is growing right. Oh well...we will be moving again next summer. Maybe we will have a better garden spot next time.

On your storing cards problem....I can't help you with that except for saying...send them out. LOL
I have the same problem though. I have been stamping up a storm lately. More then I am sending out and the cards are piling up.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
