Sew What?



Scrapbooking is about trying new things; stepping out of your comfort zone. Since working at a scrapbooking store, I have *had* to try new things in this hobby to come up with classes. And I have tried things never before even attempted in my own work. A new challenge presented to me was to sew on my page. I LOVE the look of sewing on pages but it's pretty permanent so I didn't feel very confident that I could do this or be happy with what happened. Brenda from work just made up a sewing page for a class so I thought 'what the heck?'. And I did it! This layout of Lauryn is my first attempt at sewing and I think it works! It's amazing the look you get by just running your page through your sewing machine! I do have to admit though it was not easy sewing through the chipboard. But I think I do like the sewing and I think it will be staying around for a while so don't be surprised if you see more sewing on my future pages lol!

*Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE Basic Grey paper!!! OMG! I am soooooooo addicted!*

I love it! You did a great job. I wish I had a sewing machine, because I love the stitched look.

Oh, and I also love BG papers!! I've used lots of them in my LOs and I have some more waiting to be used - mostly from the new Skate Shoppe collection, great for boyish LOs!

Thanks, Hannah. It was fun but going over the chipboard, I worried I was going to break my needle! I've used Skate Shoppe and I seem to be using quite a bit of Fusion at the moment. Did you see all the new ones coming out? Check out their website www.basicgrey.com

I just had a look at the website ... I love the new Urban Couture papers!! And Hang 10!! The Baby Boy ones are pretty cool as well - they would be great for a little boy LO (and I do a whole lotta those, LOL)

When do you reckon they'll be available here?

I found your blog linked through a friends of mine, who reads a friend of yours, and hope you don't mind me reading it. How appropriate that I come upon a site that belongs to a mother of girls and a scrapbooker. I love scrapbooking, especially the photos of my three girls. I also love basic grey paper, and chatterbox, and memory makers etc. Love the layout. I will have to check in every so often to see your new ones. In case you are wondering, I am in Summerland, British Columbia, Canada.

That is an awesome layout! I so need to get some of the work done on my boys' books!
