Paper Hoarders DT Offering - You Keep Us In Stitches

Welcome to Paper Hoarders DT spot.  LoveBug Creations is happy to participate in You Keep Us In Stitches! Today we celebrate the invention of the sewing machine.

Tanya, our PH guru, has a listing of all the DT offerings on her blog at
so check out the other talented "sewers" today.

Mama LoveBug is up first - hey when they stop making safety pins, I'm in trouble.  I'm not a sewmaster but I do appreciate all those who do, including my mother!  You know when I was in the 7th grade I failed the home ec exam because I couldn't identify the parts of the sewing machine - we didn't have one!  All the sewing that went on at my house was done by hand!!

Anyway, here is my pocket card for a true sewer: Sew Amazing!

This is the base of the card.
 This is the insert.

I used several sewing stamp sets - I stamped, gold embossed, and colored in some of images with colored pencils, markers, and a few Stickles here and there.  The paper was from my stash and I cut and pieced several designs to the insert and the base of the pocket.  Happy Sewing Machine Day!

                             HI EVERYONE!!!
Wasn't Mama's card "sew" terrific??? Love it!!!
Ok I wanted to share with you all a card I made! For some reason I found this very difficult so I went pretty literal with it! All the cuts are from various cricut carts!! I hope you enjoy!

Don't forget to stop by everyone else's blogs on the Paper Hoarders DT and give them some love! We all worked so hard on our projects!!

Bug hugs,
