It is another Sensational Saturday and that means a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow called SEW FASHIONABLE. We want you to make vintage or shabby chic cards with some sewing on them and something that speaks to fashion.
This week we are pleased to welcome a new sponsor, Live and Love Crafts, who will be providing one random winner with their choice of six colours of the gorgeous hand-dyed crinkle seam binding that they sell in their online store. All of the girls on the DT have used the seam binding on their cards this week and were thrilled with the quality and the size of the skein.
The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow. The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will also receive a winner's badge and be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
I went outside my comfort zone this week and rather than hand sewing as I usually do, I actually used my sewing machine to stitch around the fabric square that I brought back from England. The flower was something new I tried and is my favourite thing on this card (come to think of it, making any kind of flowers is my favourite and I love trying new types). It is made of vellum that I embossed and then sponged with distress ink. My crinkle seam binding was crinkled so tightly that I couldn't make a bow I was happy with so I just took my iron and gave it a light pressing.

Little Red Wagon - Bows
The Paper Shelter - Charms
