Home sweet Home

Good morning,it's mighty cold out today so i hope your all keeping warm,today i share another card with you from Tonics latest launch Sew Pretty die range  on create and craft as the craftinator and today's card i used the circle pinhole layering sets these dies are fantastic and i can see i will use these just as much as the circle & square layering sets plain & scalloped as they work together so well

                                                       Dies used:
                                          Pinhole circles layering sets
                                          Scalloped circle layering sets
                                          Square stitch die & emboss set

The card was created using A3 card stock cutting it to the width you like and then measuring along the botton edge to find the centre then mark it with a pencil then measure up approx 2" then from the centre mark cut from your bottom corner to your centre point and again from the opposite corner i then do the same with the cream layer and reduce the size a little to create a nice border around the edge, again up to you how wide you want your border to be i then distressed the edges with Antique linen and tea dye from tim holtz then added black stitching with a fine nib pen  to the edge &  wrapped the ribbon around the cream layer before sticking it to the card base.
                         I cut 3 different size pinhole circle's in craft card and stitched the edges with embroidery thread i then cut them out of the card stock using the scalloped layering dies as the pinhole dies stay in the card stock i then added the Home sweet Home sentiment cut in black and white card stock and slightly off set to finish,  i  then added the cotton reel and needle from the square stitch & emboss set and finished with a matching bow.

                Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today

                                               Until next time

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.
