LOAD #14

Posted on in CTMH, Studio J Leave a comment

I love that Studio J allows me to tell stories as they happen.  This layout documents the adventures in sewing my crop buddies and I had last night!  Since I’m so enamored with the technique of sewing on pages right now, I added a lot of digital stitching to my Studio J layout.  Plus, how perfect is this Stella kit for telling a story related to sewing?!  I will admit that the stitching around the center die cut was very fussy as I had to lay each one individually, but it is totally worth it.

Karen wanted to recreate the treat bags on page 57. This is a close up shot I took of it at the CTMH convention.  There are so many great reasons to become a consultant, but convention is by far the best!  Not only do we get fantastic training (both lecture and hands on), we get to inspect the Idea Book artwork in person.  I’m already signed up to attend convention at Disney World next summer!

Now that I look at my detailed shot, I am realizing that they used purple thread.  It looked black in the Idea Book.

The LOAD prompt was all about using black and white on the page.  I opted for sepia photos which I feel is close enough to BW!  🙂


A Blast from the Past

So, I was listening to the Paperclipping Roundtable while scrapbooking last night.  It is my go-to podcast for scrapbooking, by the way, so I encourage you to check it out!  Anyway, May Flaum was one of the guest hosts and she was talking about her tattoo.  It reminded me of the layout I did about Kate’s first tattoo.  You can read the original post on my old blog, but here are the photos of the layout.

I think it is a little hysterical that I had my camera poised in the hope that she would cry.  Of course, she is far too tough to cry over a little tattoo.  LOL…I really am not a mean aunt!
