My stamp room still isn't totally put back together after getting some new electrical run to the stamping tables, so I've been taking classes in the local area. These are two cards I made last weekend at the Hen House. I love the architectural design of the Tim Holtz stamps in these series… Since I am a seamstress also, I had to make some using the Sewing Blueprint set. A very talented lady , Cheryl Valdez teaches alot of the beautiful cards there.
And the SEWING machine…. you have to have a Sewing machine to sew!!
This actually looks like a machine I learned to sew on… though mine was a TREADLE machine! .. I loved sewing on that machine in Home EC in school. Did anyone else out there sew on a Treadle machine?? My machine at home was in a regular cabinet, but we had quite a few in high school that were treadles. Oh how I would love to have one. You can really control all the stitching by how fast you move the treadle !
Leave me a comment if you ever sewed on a Treadle sewing machine, and I'll send you a surprise in the mail!
We are getting some really neat embellishments in the new Stampin' UP! catalog that would go great on some sewing cards. If you'd like a catalog… email me for information on how to get one. If you place an order online this month for $50 or more, I'll send you one FREE in the mail!! I already have some ready to go out!! Gorgeous new colors, embellishments, new RIBBONS, and other lucious things!!
