"SEW" Dang Cute!

It is that time again!!!
This is one of my favourite posts of the month because I just love stitching on a layout, I think it just gives a layout a lot more texture and a beautifully finished feeling!  Lets see what our awesome design team members have come up with for you today.

Bo Bunny Products used:
Patterned Paper: Crazy Love ~ More Than Words, Crazy Love Dot (back), Crazy Love Fudge & Flowers (back),

Designer note: When using your sewing machine, branch out and try using some of the other stitch designs on your machine. In this layout I used the regular stitches, zig-zag and a fancy edge stitch around the border. Practice on a scrap piece of paper to get confidence in using new stitches.

  18. I've never quite got the hang of stitching on paper, must be using incorrect needles or tension. Any hints?
    I simply love the Kisses layout!

  19. Once you start stitching on a Layout you are pretty much addicted ... beware all your LO's - they may be under the "needle" in due course ...

    TFS these awesome LO's ...

  20. These are seeeeewwwwwwww the stiching ...most precious layouts ..great inspiration..thanks

  21. These layouts are SO beautiful!! I love to stitch on my layouts. What holds me back: wrong color in the machine and I don't want to take the time to re-load, or I'm making 4 layouts on one day and all the colors are different!!! Or the stupid machine jams because I decided to stitch AFTER I glued!!! I resort to pen-stitching or rub ons then.

  22. They're all beautiful layouts but I think this time Tomokos' creation is a winner!!!


  23. Loving the stitching, layerings, dimension, colors...well, just loving everything. Mahalo for sharing. Gotta dust off my machine!

  24. I'd say these are certainly works of art!!! All the lucious details brings a smile to my face...LOVE IT!!!!
