I finally got a little time to play with my new Janome sewing machine. I am LOVING it! The ironic thing is that I just discovered Gina K's posts on her blog about how to use the darn thing. Click here to visit her blog, see her fun tutorials, and enter to win your own FREE Janome Sew Mini! Woo-Hoo! As you can tell from my card, I still need a little practice with getting my lines straight and getting the corners to look halfway decent. But for my first sewing project, I guess it's not too bad.
I got my Papertrey order yesterday and was excited to see what I could make with my fun new goodies. Can I just tell you that I am in love with their cardstock? It is very thick and so luxurious (if you can even say that about paper.) I used her new “Perfect Match” cardstock, ribbon, and ink, along with the new Everyday Blessings and Polka Dot Basics stamp sets. This is what I came up...
Check out the corner here. Yikes. How do I avoid this and make the corners look nicer???
