Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means no digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist*Use a cross stitch,which is simply an X. It's not required, but will get you an extra vote at the end of the month.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 6/1/12, and you have until 6/30 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)1 entry per person.


To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

No need to sign up. At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

My example:

Perfect timing! I just finished my dd's grad page and did machine AND hand sewing on it. X stitches under dried flowers, vertical machine sewing on left and right sides. Thanks for hosting this challenge

I'm going to try and get this one done this month- I have a 2pg LO I'm working on- finalizing the design and will start putting things down- some stitching would be the perfect accent...

It has been a long while since I have done a challenge and really had fun with this one! There are several places with machine stiching and also hand stiching the circle with X's.

Here is my lo. I stitched around the 3 strips behind the pics and on the strip with the names. I did the twist, using cross stitches around the larger b/w pic and, also, used a single cross stitch on the smaller b/w pic.

Here's my layout for the challenge. I hand stitched the stems of the flowers using 1/8" ribbon, hand stitched the word "my", did machine stitching around the border of the layout (very subtle, tone-on-tone) and machine stitched on the tag. For the twist, I cross-stitched 3 Xs on the tag.
