I'm just loving the sewing trend in paper crafting goodies. Maybe becuase I remember my mom sewing when I was a little girl. I remember her laying out her fabric on the dining room table and carefully measuring and pinning the pattern pieces. I can still remember the sound of her good scissors...the one I was NEVER allowed to cut paper with :-)...on the table as she cut through the fabric. And then she would stitch all of those pieces together...I loved to watch the process of her turning a flat piece of fabric into something for one of us to wear, or something for our home.
Anyway, I seem to be drawn to these motifs...I love this set of chipboard from Maya Road...that little sewing machine is so sweet.
I trimmed the ruler image from a piece of very masculine paper...from Graphic 45's Proper Gentleman collection...you'd never guess it, would you? I love finding unexpected uses for products.
I used Papertrey's Persian Lace doily in the background, stamped with one of my new favorite stamp images...the rose from the Hero Art/Basic Grey Hello Luscious stamp set. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Postmarks set...love the vintagey font.
