I made an anniversary card for my cousin and her husband at the beginning of the month. It was the first card I'd ever sewn on! Pretty cool. I always shy away from bustin' out the ol' sewing machine for paper crafting because it seems like so much hassle, but I was really happy with the results. The patterned paper is from Wild Asparagus, buttons and ribbons from PTI. This picture is a little washed out, zoom in to see the sewing.
Since then, though, I came across a little portable crafting sewing machine at Tuesday Mornings. I picked it up with not very high expectations. It was $6.99, what did I have to lose? Well, I'm pretty happy with it, actually! It's LOUD! But, it works, so I'll be adding more sewing to my cards from now on.
And then I did this little card for a friend who had just undergone surgery. Just a little pick-me-up. The image is from Stamping Bella and I colored her in with copics. I also used my nestibilities and realized I'm missing some of the parts to make this die cutting machine work right. I bought it used from eBay, so I really was just peicing things together and trying to make it work, but it never cut all the way through. So, I did a little research on the Wizard website and ordered the peice I was missing, so we'll be back in business soon.
