Thanks Sew Much at Exploring Cricut

Welcome back and thank you for stopping by on this smashing Saturday. 
 
We started some school shopping yesterday (found a new dress for a fabulous price and my daughter crossed off a few items on her list), so today is going to be a day at home...a little cleaning and lots of projects to get done for the class. My goal is to complete my school projects this weekend, set them up in my class on Monday or Tuesday, and then resume regular crafting time. I haven't shared as much or visited lately, but that will change soon.
 
Today is my day at Exploring Cricut.
Although I do not use the sewing machine often, I sure do like the effect the stitching leaves on a card. The biggest reason I do not use the sewing machine often is I feel I would have to change the thread every time I made a new card so the colors would coordinate. How do you handle that or is it not an issue?
This sewing machine is easy to cut...only two layers. I added craft thread and carefully wrapped it around the spool pin. 
Materials:
kraft, cream, and burgundy card stock
pattern paper from scrap box
Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge ~ sewing machine (p. 22) cut at 2"
ribbon from Michaels
craft thread
 watermelon skittles by Carri at Abusybee
brown ink
computer generated sentiment
Spellbinders ~ Lacey Circle
 
Challenges:

Hope you enjoy your weekend and find some time to craft! Be sure to come back on Monday for the new Exploring Cricut challenge.
 
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  10. School shopping...is it that time, already? YIkes, where oh where did the summer go? It sounds like you got some things marked off your list and now I suppose you will hit it hard for class projects! You are like an energizer bunny that keeps going..and going!
    Give me some of that mojo, lol! You rock!
    Your card is so awesome! I love the sewing machine cut, the fun papers and embellishments are fabulous! I can not seem to get that machine out much... I am with you, having to switch the thread out all the time seem like a pain...but I should try and use my machine a bit more. I really do like the look of it!
    Great job my friend! Enjoy the rest of your wknd!
