Sketch Girl is back from it's holiday hiatus and I managed to find the time and inspiration to play along. It gave me a chance to use some more of my new Stampin' Up! goodies like the Sale-a-bration Scallop trim boarder punch and the matching corner punch (from the current mini). You're probably going to see it a lot in my future projects. It's very similar to the apron punch (which is impossible to find around here) only a little fancier.
I used the heart punch and ran the hearts through my cuttlebug using the Perfect Polka Dots impressions folder. The red heart is popped up with a dimensional. The sentiment is framed with the boarder and corner punch which I have to admit was tricky and finicky. After my third try it was finally presentable. Lastly on the bottom scallop trim I added pink stitching to the top for a little something extra. It was all hand done for a more precise and polished look. I found the hand stitching very therapeutic as well so I'll doing more of this technique in the future.
Thanks so much for looking. Hope you're having a happy crafty week.
