Another Cornish Heritage Farms Peek


Yes, the new Rummage Bin set from Cornish Heritage Farms is all about sewing! Sew Special will be released this coming Tuesday, and if you sew or knit, or know anyone who does, you'll love this set. My mom is a quilter, so I am especially excited to make her lots of cards with this set! I combined images from Sew Special with the Stitches Scrapblock... a natural pairing, don't you think? ;) Heat embossing with the Stitches Scrapblock makes an especially nice, textural background. I used one of the great embossing powders from Zing! (got them at Archiver's) - so many fun colors that I haven't seen anywhere else (this one is called "Powder," and it's pale blue, but hard to tell in the photo).

Hope you're having a great start to the weekend!
