Did I tell you that I just got a sewing machine? I wanted one for the longest time - and having chance to use my mom's over the summer for my scrapbooking projects made me want it more. I love the stitched look, and I love the fact that even though you don't have to do it perfectly. It still makes your projects look good, and somehow, it adds warmth and the feel of "handmade" to them.
Anyway, I never realized how hard it is to use a sewing machine. I never had that much trouble learning the Cricut or any of the software to go with it, I can operate my Big shot fine, I can seem to use my binding tools... but, I can't seem to grasp the sewing machine too well. For days, I had problems with stitches, being uneven, or too much/less tension... and got my mom to take a look at it, and I had threaded it wrong! Duh! I got her to do the bobbin thing too for me, so don't ask me to change the color of the thread until this one is done. Hahaha..
Nevertheless, I did get the stitching thing going, and made two Christmas "quilted" cards. The stamps are from Technique Tuesday, and all I did was I adhered the small square pieces onto the card and sewed it on. A card made in 5 minutes, and I love the look!
I splurged on the Craftysteals Black Friday sale and got the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Starter pack. Sooo excited! Not to mention 6 packs of paper, ATG gun (finally) and 2 Cricut carts (sorry, SVGCuts - it was too good of a deal and was calling out my name)!
Now it's your turn - tell me what you bought!
