I really liked seeing how you created the effect. I enjoy watching demonstrations. For me, it really helps me to understand it much better and shows me that I CAN do it. :) Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks Kathy! Glad you liked it! I sure hope it made sense. I know I said I would spritz the paper but I don't. I just spritz the acrylic block. LOL!

great video patter.. can see everything youre doing perfectly and you have a SUPER speaking voice. way to go on this tutorial! i cant wait to try this technique. memory box is still my favorite line of paper i cant wait to get the new pack :) i adore that new stamp too and for sure am going to order that today, right now lol . thank you for all your inspiration. xxshelly

Well Patter,
I think you did a great job, especially for your first video. The only thing I can think of (that I would change) would be...
after you tear the edges, just lay it on a piece of the paper that is the background on the card. It would make the design show up more and by that time I had forgotten what the finished card looked like so that may help.
I look forward to many more videos from you.

LOL on the speaking voice Shelly! :) I can't stand to hear myself but I do a lot of public speaking. My last speech was in front of 180+ women. I love to teach and give speeches. I am weird that way. LOL! So glad you liked it. And yes, the papers and the stamps are great. Make sure you visit the link to the Valentine goodies to see all of the other Valentine stamps. All of the Memory Box collage stamps work perfect for this technique!

And Debbie, thank you for the feedback. It is really hard to "preplan" what I will do on a video. I didn't even "plan" to tear my paper on the video. Too funny! But I like your recommendation. Thank you very much!

Great tutorial! TFS!

Loved your video and the technique I will be trying this out and see what effect I can make, again video was great and the birds just gave you their approval.
Thanks again for sharing and look forward to more videos..

Excellent video! Would love to know where you got your tearing tool and who manufactured it. Thanks

Great video, Patter! I love how-to videos....I think I must be a visual learner. :) I agree that laying it on a background or even just showing the finished card at the end would be helpful.

I enjoyed hearing the birds. If I did a video, you'd be sure to hear a cat or see their paws trying to swipe my supplies. LOL

Thanks again everyone. And you want to know my little secret, I always work on that glass mat, and the lines helped me make sure I worked where y'all could see me so I didn't stray off camera. LOL! I will try to work like that but put the finished product on top of something at the end in the future. :)

Robyn, my tearing tool is from CM. I have had it for several years. The store where I teach my Memory Box classes sells them too but I forget who makes them.

Hi Patter

Great video, thanks for the tutorial!

Have a nice day

Thanks for the great video. I've never seen that technique before. You did a great job, can't think of anything to change.

So, what do y'all want to see with Memory Box products on a next video? Share your ideas too. :)

I enjoyed your video and hearing your voice and the parrots also. :) I'm glad you showed the cutting tool. That's brand new too me. I've never seen it anywhere, didn't know there was one, and my tearing by hand, goes crazy. Guess it's too late to put this on my list for "Santa". :)Looking forward to many more videos. Thanks

You did a fabulous job Patter on your first video tut. Thanks so much for sharing techniques with us.

TFS Patter and you did great for a first video. This is an interesting tech that I will experiment with.
