Sew What's New?

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by - I always love to see that you have been! It is Saturday evening for me here Down Under - today was a little bit fa shock as we have been having fabulous Spring weather - bit not today, it was very cool and windy.  I remind myself  we will be complaining about the heat before we know it!!  Colder weather means time in The Studio, but who am I kidding - so does hot weather LOL!

The patterned paper has been cut into squares and layered onto recycled cardboard, cut to size using a Spellbinders Matting Die and lightly sanded.  Each of the squares has been paper pierced by hand.  This has all been adhered to a pre-cut slightly larger Kraft card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Sheets 4 x6.   Want2Scrap Turquoise Baby Bling has been added between each pennant.  

The Banners have been cut/embossed using the Die D-Lites Amused 1 Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

TheSewing Machine image has been has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black onto white card stock and fussy cut/hand cut out using scissors. then popped up onto a die from the Spellbinders Distressed Edges Etched Die

Glue a scalloped white border below the image, next adhere a narrow strip of patterned paper and adhere it above the scalloped border.  Trim and adhere a strip of  Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders onto the scalloped edge.
