sew special

Sewing is near and dear to my heart. It’s something I’ve done as far back as I can remember and some of my first memories of both my grandmothers are them sitting at their sewing machines. The sewing trend is still going strong and it’s one that I’m hoping will never go away. We all know someone who is “sew special”.

This card was another that I created for guest designing at Maya Road. Have you seen their latest sneak peeks?! I’m in love! Check them out here.
Another company I love, Lily Bee, is sharing sneak peeks on the Lily Bee blog this week. I think you’ll love what’s coming up and make sure you stop by and comment for a chance to win!

To create this zipper flower, I’ve just used a Cosmo Cricket Gluber and then spiraled the zipper trim ribbon around until I have a nice flower. The center is then covered with a button and you’re done. So easy!



Misting adds shimmer to this project and I’ve also opened the mister and flicked the dye over the project for a distressed look as well.

Quick Tip: Adhere acrylic alphabets and accents with Ranger Glossy Accents for a clear and firm bond.
