Tonight I worked on a page with my Melissa Frances products. I love them so much! It didn't turn out anything like I meant for it to turn out, but I guess that happens sometimes! I had a different idea in my head that I didn't end up using this time around. Does that ever happen to you?
I used the new Courage paper, new Attic Treasures die cuts, Glitter Alphabet, Girl's Transfers, and my favorite stamps ever - the Baroque Stamp set. The frame is a Tattered Angels frame and is already embossed..it's gorgeous! Tattered Angels goes so well with Melissa Frances. I stitched inside the frame with hot pink thread to make it pop out a little bit more.
My daughter Kati is SUCH a girly girl, just like me. She loves to pick out her own clothes at age 4 now...here she is sporting her own outfit of choice complete with candy necklace (that she didn't eat because she wanted to wear it only)! =)
I wanted to chat about stitching on chipboard really quick (see post below). It's very easy, I just painted the letters first and ran them through my machine just like paper
or fabric. No different technique to stitching on chipboard! Try it on a sample piece first. I found it was easier to attach the chipboard to the page first and then stitch. This way you don't have to hold the chipboard with your fingers and risk stitching your fingers! Just use a tape roller to attach them, not a glue dot. The machine won't stitch through glue dots. Give it a try...it's fun!
