Scrapbooking Week: Sewing on a Page


Remember to link up your scrapbooking ideas in my link party

In the middle of my scrapbooking break, I got my very first sewing machine in the mail (hip hip hooray!!). Well I told myself that I wouldn't work on any other crafts other than scrapbooking. But I had to try out my new sewing machine, so I did, on my page! I have always loved the look for the stitching on pages, but never had a machine to do it. I have a feeling that I'm doing to do this a lot!

This was actually my favorite layout that I did the whole week, I love how it turned out!
I love the look of stars, they are so fun! You could also do this with flowers, circles or any other shape

stitching around the star was actually pretty hard, I'm not very good on my machine yet, but I think it turned out pretty good.
