All Needles and Pins at Kraft Plus

Welcome to December and to a new challenge at Kraft Plus! This month, your challenge is to use Needles and Pins somehow in your kraft-based project. You can use the needles and pins themselves or you can add stitching or even just punched holes!

I came up with this:

I took some fun photos of my bestie and I one day when we were travelling together and they've been great to scrap.

I used the Needles and Pins theme in a few different ways. I stitched the title using my sewing machine. I'd never tried to do this before and it certainly was challenging, but I got there in the end. Note that I used a very short title to lessen the chance of a serious mistake! It didn't turn out perfect but it worked. I also used a pin on the butterfly beside it.

I also stitched a fancy border around the edges of the page. I made this by increasing and decreasing the size of the zig-zag stitches.

I had this pack of Kaisercraft embellishments sitting on my desk for a while. I wanted to use them but they were very little-girl themed and I have no little girls in my life at the moment. By only using certain items I was able to use them for a big-girl page instead!

I also dug out my old brads for this. I seem to be reaching for them a lot lately.

I hope you can join us at Kraft Plus this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!
