Putting Inspirations to Work-Stitching

Last Wednesday on Behind the Scenes Wednesday, I shared with you how I often find inspiration in my childrens' clothing. Remember that darling shirt of my daughter's? You know, the one with the "argyle" hearts. Well, I used that shirt as inspiration for one of my September DT layouts. Here's a little sneakie...

Next up I've gathered some of the tools I use when I'm hand-stitching on my pages. Bazzill makes some great templates that I use on many of my projects. (See the circle and border templates). You just line up the template and poke holes where you need them using a paper piercer (I use one from Close to My Heart) and a squishy mat (mine's from Scrapworks). For this layout, I needed a shape (an elongated X) that I didn't havce a template for. So, I used my trusty ruler and a pencil with the paper piercer and pad. You'll see the rest of this layout at 10 PM when we do the big Gallery Reveal.

Here's a peek at a project I'm about to start using the bits and pieces of my "old" Mosh Posh kits. Stay tuned for this and maybe I'll even throw in one of my world famous webisodes (teeheee).

And just for reading this far, here's a sneak peek of yet another project from September's Gallery Reveal. See you at 10 PM EST!
