And welcome to week thirty-two of my Project Life journey. I’m working back through the year in a bid to catch up while also moving forward to not fall behind. Makes sense right?
Lately I’m having trouble just sitting and doing nothing. I think it’s from constantly being on the go and I’m simply out of practice. While my house was quiet last weekend when my babes were visiting their dad and with my determination to ‘relax’ and watch and movie from start to finish (a real treat for me) I pulled out my collection of Amy Tangerine embroidery kits, embroidery threads and played – while relaxing of course. Here is one of the projects I did.
Not every part of the image has to be used. I chose the circle out of the centre of the camera from the ‘Capture’ embroidery stencil kit. I love the result.
The back isn’t pretty but don’t worry. No one will see it once it’s placed in our Project Life albums or on top of a card.
The next day I added some stamps from Kellie Stamps.
This is such a quick and easy little project.
PS | the movie that I watched was ‘Are We Officially Dating?’. Hilarious!
While visiting Amy Tangerine’s blog I came across this post called Craftcation Photos. Lots of gorgeous pics showing what her students created using her embroidery stencils and patterned papers. Totally inspired I took what I had on hand from Amy’s Cut & Paste and Yes, Please collections outside on our little verandah in the sun and set to work.
I had some fluffy company.
So now I have a cut little stack of 3×4 and 4×6 cards to use in my Project Life album.
Here is what I used, all of which is available in my store.
The ‘Capture’ and the ‘Inspire’ embroidery stencil kits. Both on sale now. The kits come with three different colour of embroidery thread, the piercer, a needle and piercing mat together with two fab stencils.
‘Awesome Sauce’ patterned paper by Amy Tangerine from her Cut & Paste collection.
‘A-Lister’ patterned paper by Amy Tangerine from her Cut & Paste collection.
There are lots of co-ordinating embellishments, die-cuts and stamps etc too. You can find those HERE.
Kraft patterned paper called ‘Trust’ from Amy Tangerine’s Yes, Please collection.
You can find co-ordinating embellishments, stickers, chipboard, stamps, etc of the Yes, Please collection HERE.
It was so refreshing and inspiring being outside, rugged up, on top of an old quilt and creating in the cool autumn air. Beats being cooped up in a studio especially when the sun was out. Try it. You’ll love it!
Have a great Monday all! x
I love tags.
I love embroidery kits.
I love sewing on paper with my hands and with my sewing machine.
Do you? Or do you want to give it a try?
You get 12 in each pack. The holes are already there for you to simply sew in the stitches.
I have used two of these tags in my latest Project Life spread which I’ll blog tomorrow.
Check out this video to see Amy Tangerine explain and demonstrate how to use her embroidery kits. She also demonstrates how to do the back stitch which is the best hand stitch to use when sewing embroidery thread onto these tags and when using her embroidery kits.
If you want to go straight to that part of the video you’ll find it around them 3min 21secs mark.
You can pick up embroidery thread at any sewing supply store, places like Spotlight. I’ve even been able to pick some up at my local Woolworths!
Have a great day all! xxx
