Stop, and smell the FLOWERS!

In my personal albums, I am used to scrapbooking for two boys.  No need for flowers!  But, here at Creative Memories, I have the ability to create and use all these wonderful flower embellishments.  So, I just couldn’t stop at the video showing you how to create these beautiful flowers with your Corner Maker.  I took it a step further to show you how you can incorporate them into your layouts!  The flowers are also a great touch to just about any card sentiment you are sending out–birthdays, thinking about you, sympathy, anniversary, etc. So, I am going to continue to “smell” the flowers on many projects to come!

If you missed the video, here it is for you!
