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

*Twist* For an extra vote at the end of the month stitch a star.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 7/1/13, and you have until 7/31 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.

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 with the twist:
Celebrate America By DreaSlee

June Winner:
Big Blue By Oakhills

I already have a plan for stitching this month but it isn't the twist...I may have to re-think.

LAX (Lacrosse) By LotsToScrap
I sewed the title letters on and I sewed some stars together for that 3D fold effect. Not sure if that counts as the twist or not.
The lacrosse embellishments were cut with my Cricut and the Team Spirit cart.

I gave you the twist since you stitched on a star. Thanks for playing!

congrats Ann- I adore that tractor page.

Here is mine for this month. A bit of snow to cool down the summer heat.
Snow 2010 By AllAmy
I thought about hand-stitching on some snowflake stars but I think I'm done. I'll let you know if I add later to it for the twist.

I have a sketch and the papers, I just need to print out the photo I need. Maybe I'll just print it here at home so I can get the LO done, then I'll add the real photo later.

finally getting around to uploading. On this layout I stitched the edges of all the hills in the landscape as well as the edges on the moon and tree and added the twist of stitching stars in the sky.

What I want to know is why my husband didn't get any bites when he didn't even spray himself with bug spray. It happened last time we went camping too. Oh well. ACU and updated!

I think it's because we are "sweeter" than our men folk - LOL. I have been sitting outside in the evenings with my DH, enjoying our garden, etc. and I have been getting bitten alive but my DH - Not ONE bite.
