Time for the Thursday Tutorial =-Hearts and more hearts

Sorry this is late. I set it to post as usual this morning but it didn't post.

It's time for the Thursday Tutorial and I want to share a layout I did this week using K and Company Valentine paper and two techniques. Some of the Valentine paper is so cute and I figured I could use it with these cute pics of my granddaughter Katie kissing her new baby sister Brittany.
I wanted to try sewing on my layout and my new MS Punch All Over the Page.
The title Kissin My Sis is cut at 2 inches from Kate's ABC.
The little hearts were in my stash from punching with another MS punch. There are two different sizes. I sewed them on in three rows for each page. It was a learning process and I had a little trouble with the old machine I was using but I still like it. Then I added some rhinestones hearts. The bottom row is done with MS All Over the Page heart punch. Below you will find two You Tube videos. One on using the MS punch and one on sewing on paper. There are others on You Tube also. I also found a great article with 6 tips on sewing on paper and great pictures.

My tip on sewing is make sure you keep your finger out of the way. This is based on personal experience years ago and a 5 hour trip to the Emergency room.

I hope you will find one of these articles or videos helpful. I am definitely going to use both again.
Remember this week at FCCB is Love is in the Air- use a heart in your project. So let's see what you can all create using hearts this week. Also I would love to read your comments. Happy craftin!
