Sew Simple

I treated myself to this new little gadget from We Are Memory Keepers. It is a Sew Simple. I wasn't sure when I ordered if I would use it a lot but I have had time to play today and it is fantastic. Such an easy way to put sewing on your cards and so effective as you will see from my first attempt card below.

I'm really please with how it turned out. It takes a little practice to get the pressure right to punch the holes but it so much quicker and simpler than getting the sewing machine out.

Hoot of a birthday!

I made this card for a friend of mine, who needed a card for her brother. It is made from the Cricut Hoot and Holler cartridge and even though I do say it myself I am really pleased how it turned out!
