In Stitches

Welcome to another terrific challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

This week, we are challenging you to thinking about the world of stitching... Stitches can come in many forms. The obvious is some form of stitching on your project and we will come back to that in a moment. But there are other types of stitches as well - laughing until you are "in stitches," or possibly the medical type of stitches, or even the stitches to hold together a heritage style of book. 

Most people would think of stitching on a project for this challenge - and that is what all of our design team members chose to do in some way or another. I personally love to stitch on my cards and layouts and have been doing it for many years. I have compiled a list of suggestions on my blog for hand-stitching, machine-stitching and even for faux-stitching for those of you who may not be ready to delve into the real thing yet. If you are looking for some hints and suggestions, please feel free to take a look here and don't be afraid to ask questions! 

Let's take a look at the inspiring projects from our design team! 

















You have until the end of July to enter this or any of the other July challenges. We would love for you to be a Heart 2 Heart Sweetheart (by participating in every challenge of the month!) 
Be sure to use some Close To My Heart products in your creation.
