FWF [Sept. 10] **lots of pics!!

Hello, friends:}


What a great day!! It's FRIDAY--meaning....friends with flair over at the Unity blog!! HOOORAY! Love Unity!!


Just love creating with my Unity stamps, and my first creation was a sneak peek last week. I created this sewing journal for all my ideas and notes. I have a new sewing machine {well...it was bought a year ago and it is STILL new to me}, and the manual is like 100 pages! So as I am reading it, I like to write down notes or hints that I find helpful. A notebook is very important because this sewing machine has a huge touch screen and more technology on/in it than I can manage to figure out. So notes are good! For this notebook, I used my Unity Stuck On You set. I paper pieced each image on the sewing machine. I also cut a real pin to make it look like a needle on the machine. I masked the thread that was coming off the spool so I could glue down thread in a random pattern. I tried to make it look just like the real stamp image-but it was super hard to glue down thread in that tight of a space! I just love how this turned out. Simple--but it was SUPER HARD! I'm not going to lie--paper piecing is difficult with little images. Either way--I loved making it! And I love love love this Unity set:}
A close-up of the detail on the sewing machine.


This next card was paper pieced---another VERY DIFFICULT image to piece. But I LOVE IT! I love how this card turned out. I made it for the Limelight sketch challenge last week. I was really stumped at this sketch--but then I got the new Unity Joy Ride stamps in the mail and knew exactly what I wanted to make! The sentiment is from Unity's December KOTM. I just love this card! So fun:]
I created this card just for the Paper Crafts Magazine challenge {use text in a different way}. I made the text like chipboard letters. I really liked this saying (but the stamp was too small)...so I used my Unity owl from the August KOTM and my Cricut to make it bigger. I love how this turned out! I love owls--love them! I also love the challenges over at PC! So fun!


This last card has been sitting in my pic file for at least two weeks! I have been dying to share it with you!!! It actually won #1 over on the Paper Crafts Magazine blog this week! I created it using Teri Anderson's sketch. AND...Trav helped me figure out what I was going to make. I love when he helps! I used Ippity's bird stamp from the Fall For You set. I also used Unity's Spring Unity set for the sentiment. I embroidered the word "home". LOOOOOOOOOOVE it! I love this card--LOVE it!!
