I first came across this product in Papercraft Inspirations December Issue 80 on page 12. Wow, it looks awesome. I love the look of real stitching on cards, but I do not have the money to go out there and buy a sewing machine just for my card making. I have a feeling that I would be crap at it anyway. So up until now I have had to stick to faux stitching with a white gel pen. It does look good, but it doesn't have the same depth and texture as real stitching. I have giving real stitching a few attempts on my card, but laying out the mat so you know where to place your holes, then pricking all your holes individually can take forever, hence why just small areas of my cards have been hand stitched previously, and this is also how I know I love the effect! :)

Interchangable heads along with a foam mat for proper use
 and a choice of emboidery floss/thread,
also included is a needle with an extra large eye to make threading
all that more easy!


By looking handmade the take all the fuss out of making your own embellishments and letting you get on with other areas of crafting on projects. Perfect for those quick makes


I know Halloween has been and gone, but these little cuties could be used on cards all year round!




Basic Grey NEVER let down, these two collections look gorgeous and refreshing!! :)

  1. I'm liking the look of that sew easy board - but looking at your faux stitching done with a gel pen, who needs to hand stitch eh?


I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
