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 use red and/or pink stitching.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 2/1/14, and you have until 1/28/14 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.

Hopefully it won't be your last time sewing on a page. Unfortunately there's no link on your photo, but I left you some love in your gallery. I have directions on the top post on how to embed your LO so everyone else can leave you some love too! Let me know if you need any help.

Happy Valentine's Day!! Here's a card that I made for my DH. I machined stitched around the edges and used pink to sew the black doily heart and along the chevron paper. TFL!

Marci - congrats on the win last month. Hopefully you will now add sewing to your los on a regular basis.

Trying to catch up and CREATE something today. Toby, the new puppy, is quite the distraction. If we aren't playing we are CORRECTING some bad habits. I must admit - he's wearing me out!!!

Yes Marci hopefully you can play with us more often!You're a better sewer than you think, and winning last month just proves it!
Vickie what kind of puppy do you have?
Here's my latest with a tutorial on my blog for the stitching.

That's OK Tina! Sometimes the twist just doesn't work, and it's always better to do what's going to look better on your page. I think you made the right decision! I love your page!

Thanks I did learn a lesson tho. I put the 2 bg papers together with adhesive, then decided to sew them. That ended up causing the ripple on the top of the page so I decided to distress a little more.
Next time I would sew the white piece then glue the two together.

Tina I just did that with the last page that I made. I sewed all of the edges of my pieces and then glued them all down instead of sewing through all of those layers. It does help!
