I wanted to try out my new stamp set with all these cool "retro" designs. I was thinking of friends, and the sewing machine design and saying just fit the bill. I used my punch on the blue paper to make it look like I had taken it out of a notebook, added a bit of highlighting with a white pen, layered it on bright yellow patterned paper, and added a few buttons for the sewing theme. I used my word window punch to cut the half circles at the bottom so I could thread the baker's twine around several times. ...and there you have it, a nice, simple, classic design.
All materials from Stampin Up, except buttons baker's twine (Martha Stewart)
