This is a sneak peak at the double page layout I will be teaching on Friday night using Kaisercraft products plus more. Orange and pink what a great combination of colours with some green thrown in.

Sew-Easy Tool

This card was made using the head that comes with the tool. Such a simple idea but yet very effective.
This can be done in yellow and representing the sun and its rays on a beach layout, a day in the park etc.

Sew-easy Tool and Water Distressed Flower

Here is another layout I did using the sew-easy tool. I used a plate that I sat on the cardstock and only used the plate as a guide. I ran the edge of the tool around the circumference of the plate. Then I did running stitch through the holes.
Once again you can see my water-distressed flower on the layout.
Check out Rose-Anne's blog to see some close ups of the layout. Sew-easy Tool and Water Distressed Flower
The paper is Basic Grey, The pearls are Kaisercraft, the leaves and the small flowers are Bo Bunny stamps and the ink is Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The brads are SALT. All these products can be bought from Cropworks.

Easy-Sew Tool Layout

If you are not into sewing then you don't have to use this tool with needle and thread. I ran the tool along a piece of cardstock on the backside and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to highlight the raised parts of the pattern on the right side. I then used Chrystallina Kindy Glitz to add a bit of bling to the inked edge.
There is that water-distressed flower again in blue. You will see a lot of these featuring in layouts and cards. I went mad with them and have done several lessons for groups using the technique.

Sew-Easy Tool

I have used the head that comes with the tool to do the stems of the flowers. I have used 6 strands of embroidery floss to do BACKSTITCH. I do the piercing on the back of the patterned paper because I think it gives a deeper pierce.
The flowers are made using SALT cardstock which is a nice thickness to make these flowers. Here is the link on Rose-Anne's blog to show you how to make them. Water Paint Distressed Flowers
All products to make this layout are from Cropworks. All layouts shown on my blog can be bought as a kit. Just contact me via e-mail if you want any.

We have these tools and the attachments and I love them. It has been a long time since a new product has caught my eye and made me excited. These tools have inspired me to do many things with them so keep an eye out for the projects that will occur both on here and Rose-Anne's personal blog.

Layout for Lesson

This layout uses the Basic Grey papers, Infusion. I love the colour combination of these. If anybody would like a kit which includes the instructions they cost $10 for the lot. I am teaching this lesson at my monthly crop this weekend.
