Add a personal touch...

What's the fastest and easiest way to add texture, dimension, interest, and that personal touch to any project? Hand stitching, of course! It really says, "I took the time to put some extra love into this piece." Bazzill Basics Paper has had In Stitch'z products out for a while now - a piercing mat and tool, as well as floss and many different templates are available. To add to that, We R Memory Keepers has just released their brand new Sew Easy products, which include little piercing tools that you run down your paper to make the holes for you. So if you want to give hand-stitching a try, many products are out there to help you along. Of course, you can always just use a needle and thread and "eyeball" it, for that slightly crooked look that has its own charm. Here are a few projects I made. In case you're interested, I do own the Bazzill Basics piercing mat and tool and a few templates.




So I challenge/encourage you to give it a try! Who knows, down the road, there just might be a magazine pub call for some projects featuring just this kind of personal touch ;) Facebook
