In Stitches at The Beary Scrap

This week at The Beary Scrap we are all in "Stitches" as we try to show off different ways to stitch on paper projects. OOOOHHH, I love stitching on paper! I hardly ever use my sewing machine for anything else-- I am sure that is not what my mother imagined me sewing when she signed me up for a 4-H sewing class when I was 10, but oh well! I could actually mend some clothing, if I had to! But where's the fun in that? I'd much rather stitch paper!

For this challenge though, I didn't run to my sewing machine but to my newest Bazzill In'Stitchz 8x8 flower pattern that I've been dying to try. I used the flower template to stitch large flowers over these great pics of our trip to Florida last year. This was the first major (more than 3 days) trip my husband and I have been on without kids. Wow, total relaxation!

Then I decided I wanted to stitch my title as well so I printed the title out on my computer in the size and font I wanted then placed in on my layout and punched around the letters with a paper piercer-- I just had to be careful to make the holes close enough together that I wouldn't end up with any strange looking letters when I got done. It was a bit of an experiement, as you can tell if you look closely at my "florida" and see a couple extra holes. But it wasn't too hard and I'd definitely do better next time.
