i remember

It’s Remembrance Day and today I must stop and remember the sacrifice given for my freedom. Freedom is not free. Someone paid that price and I am thankful.

Today is a good time to stop, be quiet and think. May we never forget.

Today I changed up the Ways to Use it Challenge into a Ways to Remember one. I hope you’ll take some time to observe Remembrance Day/Veteran’s Day today. If you’re feeling inspired, we’d love to have you join the challenge here as well.

Forever Memory Card

Some times it’s difficult to create a card for specific events such as Remembrance Day. I wanted to work with what I had on hand so I found a couple stamps that would work, created my own poppy from felt, paper, a brad and the Tattered Florals Di, and found a Maya Road Kraft Ticket that had the words Memory and Forever on it.

Quick Tip: Just because there are four flowers on a die doesn’t mean you need to use them all. I’ve created the poppy here by using the two smallest flowers and layering them. Try different variations and different materials to create unique looks.

Supplies: white craft ink by Clearsnap, Black cardstock by Bazzill, Cling Old Letter stamp & Everyday Sayings stamp set by Hero Arts, twine, Leaf  Trinket Pins by Maya Road, Kraft Ticket by Maya Road, Tattered Florals Die by Sizzix, felt, brad by Basic Grey

Take care,
