Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

In loving memory of Christy RiopelAdding sewing products to your scrapbooking and paper crafting creations is definitely a trendy rage right now. It is so easy to add a button here or there, add machine stitching OR simply add a mess of sewing thread! Yes you read the correctly!  A mess of sewing thread adhered to your layout is the perfect amount of layered texture without adding any bulk. I first saw this technique way back in the Spring 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, on one of Christy Riopel’s layouts, of course. She was cutting edge way back then. Love it!

Spring 2015 Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
In this issue, Christy wrote and designed, a feature article called “From My Grandmother’s Sewing Basket”.

The article was all about pulling out your sewing baskets and using your supplies on your paper crafting projects.  The layouts in this feature are absolutely gorgeous and incorporate all things sewing – from cloth to stick pin containers to spools of thread – Christy took her sewing basket supplies to a whole new level!

Grab your sewing baskets – if you are like me – I will probably use my sewing supplies on a scrapbook page long before I will actually sew something! Giggle Giggle!

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone.
