To Melissa

It is with so sadness that I begin this post with the news of the passing of Stamplorations team member Melissa Lane .

Last October 2, Melissa Lane passed away. She was a talented cardmaker/crafter/artist, a mother of 4, wife, and servant of Jesus. 
Melissa loved to garden and she loved photography. Her favorite color was red, and she loved butterflies -- so much so that many of the cards and other projects she made had butterflies in them.

She was a valuable part of STAMPlorations -- in the 2 years we were blessed to have her on the Mixed Media team, she created some of most gorgeous mixed media projects around and she shared her knowledge through the tutorials she wrote.

If you knew Melissa when she was alive -- maybe you were on the same design team(s) or you were bloggy friends -- however you knew her, we'd like to invite you to join us in celebrating her life by creating a butterfly card in her memory.

I made a butterfly card for Melissa.

I was in a same challenge team (Happy Little Stampers) with Melissa for a year and half, and since then I have been contacted with Melissa through Facebook and Instagram.


  1. This is a beautiful card, Gloria. Melissa would love it xx

  2. Your butterfly card in honor of your friend, Melissa is GORGEOUS!!! Great background and I love the pretty layers of butterflies! She would have loved it~
