Not Just Stitches is a place where Quilting and Scrapbooking come together.
I know that might sound strange because Quilting deals with Fabric and Scrapbooking deals with Paper. But Quilting and Scrapbooking share Designs, Tools, Techniques and so much more. Designs that I use in Quilting, I can also use to make a Greeting Card or a Shadow Box. Greeting Card and Shadow Box Designs can easily be turned into an Embroidery Design which can easily be turned into Sewing Patterns and Applique Designs.
I feel in love with Scrapbooking when the AccuQuilt first came out. I then bought the Brother Scan N Cut and the Silhouette Cameo 3. I was fascinated by the intricate designs. I was very excited when I learned that these designs could be used in my Quilting and Sewing Project.
That was just the beginning. I became fascinated with Paper Engineering and Shadow Boxes. I also discovered the World of Paper Circuits which add a Special Dimension to Paper Projects. Paper Circuits really make Paper Projects shine with LED light and SMD LED circuits. Planners and Journals are things that I have used since my college years. The idea that I can design, make and customize my own Planners and Journals is incredible.
I discovered the Xyron Creative Station and the ability to make Stickers and Laminates and Magnets.
So join me, this is going to be a fun blog where everything Quilting and Scrapbooking come together.
