As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others. You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer. In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products. I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five. Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

2012 Christmas Card
Tis the season, creative counterparts. Here's this year's Christmas card. I kept it pretty simple in style so as not to distract from the sentiment on the inside, which is what is most important:
The color scheme is a little outside the box for me. I'm usually pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas colors. But overall, I am pleased with my foray into contemporary colors. So here is what I used for my cards:
Card base - Gina K. Designs heavy base weight navy cardstock
Patterned paper - Jingle by Close to My Heart
Mister Huey's Color Mists in opaque white (doesn't show up in the photos, but adds great dimension in real life)
Snowflake - Kerri Bradford cut file from the This and That Winter kit
Silver embossing powder by Hero Arts
Scalloped Window with candle (I omitted the candles) cut file from Silhouette
Inside sentiment - white cardstock, Ginda K. Designs pure luxury layering weight; Sentiment is a Silhouette cut file that I converted to a print and cut file along with the window frame from the front of the card
Silver metal 'gem' by Mark Richards
Most of my creative efforts are spent in front of my sewing maching, but my sewing and crafting time is pretty much split during this time of year as there are so many great gift items to be made. I do, however, have a quick little sewing project to share with you this weekend. So stay tuned. :)
What about you, does your sewing time give way to other creative outlets during this season? I would love to hear about or see some of your projects.
