#34 - Sew Fashionable

It is Saturday and that means it is time for a new challenge and it is called SEW FASHIONABLE.  This week we want you to make a vintage or shabby chic card with some sewing on it and something that speaks to fashion, such as vintage or retro dresses, purses, shoes, patterns, etc.

This week we are pleased to welcome a new sponsor, Live and Love Crafts.  Here is a little bit about them.

Live & Love Crafts is a UK based online store that specializes in vintage and shabby chic craft materials. We ship WORLDWIDE.

We stock the unique and beautiful vintage inspired scrapbooking papers from the Scandinavian vendors Maja DesignPion Design, Inkido, Landstoken,and Riddersholm Design.

Live & Love Crafts also carries gorgeous laces, trims, pins, broaches, buttons, flowers, resin pieces, vintage trinkets and other craft embellishments from vintage specialists such as PrimaMelissa Frances, and Maya Road.

Further products that are part of Live & Love Crafts’ portfolio are flowers from Kort og Godt, rubber stamps, cutting dies and embellishments from Magnolia, Bildmalarna and Vilda Stamps, distress inks, paints, glitter and other innovative craft products from Ranger.

Live and Love Crafts will be providing one random winner with their choice of six colours of the gorgeous hand-dyed crinkle seam binding that they sell in their online store. All of the girls on the DT have used the seam binding on their cards this week and were thrilled with the quality and the size of the skein.

The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow.  The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will also receive a winner's badge and be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

Here is what our designers have created to inspire you this week:

  2. This is the very reason I'd trade my two full time jobs for one very rich husband, so I could have the time and money to create such beautiful things, Makes my heart very happy to look at these works of art.

  3. Got carried away on this card, long story. In any event hope you can see the digital vintage scissors on this card which i found at the Graphic Fairy site. Thanks to heather for the inspiration, cuz the card came together really easy. Love that when that magic happens.
