Hello everyone from Kim Gowdy!

Here is a quick post here to highlight to lovely Pincushion paper line by Bo Bunny. For this layout I used four different patterned papers from their collection as well as the chipboard die cuts and stickers. It was the perfect paper to use for this layout of my Mom; an avid quilter!

The overlay of the sewing tools was cut using the new Brother ScanNCut. This is not an image in the library of the cutting machine. I found this free SVG file on line and used the free online, Canvas software to upload and convert to a file the ScanNCut could use. The whole process was quite simple.

I embossed the overlay with a rough, weathered type of embossing powder [I forget who makes it as I dump my embossing powders into plastic containers for ease of use]. For a fun touch I wrapped some bakers twine around the spool and secured with a hat pin I had purchased through Stampin’ Up!.  Of course I always use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L…I can count on their staying power!

I chose to make a quick card with some of the leftover scraps from the layout. Nothing difficult; just layering of bits and pieces.



Have a wonderful day everyone!
