Keeping you in stitches!

No, not the laughing kind - the real kind! I'm starting off today's Fab Friday with an announcement - I will be the Guest Designer on the Totally Papercrafts blog for November and December! I'm excited to join this group of talented ladies.

This week's challenge on Totally Papercrafts is "Stitch It!". So, with that in mind I've decided to share some tips for adding stitches to your cards.

For those without a sewing machine or who simply dread the thought of actual sewing, here's a link: Frantic Stamper's faux stitching tutorial

Here's an interesting tutorial on using your sewing machine without thread:  Stitching Without Thread

Finally, Hero Arts has some wonderful samples with actual stitching , as well as a link to the video below, here:  Hero Arts: Adding Stitching


Happy stitching! Be sure to check out the wonderful stitched samples at  Totally Papercrafts, including this card by yours truly. :)
