november gallery updates are live at jbs mercantile! i used the mini-album kit to begin this album that i intent to use as a hostess gift for the annual thanksgiving feast that i attend this year. my plan is to make a basic design for each page, get group photos taken of all the families in attendance, and then have each family write a note of thanks to include along with their photos. i love it!
now the thing to not do. i broke THREE needles sewing on this cover. it looks nice, but it was sure destructive. the first two i broke by trying to sew too close to the binding. i finally had to sew that last feather separately and then glue it to the page. the third needle i broke by sewing too fast over the chipboard thickers (which were on the chipboard cover- that's a whole lot of thick). i finally used the hand crank on the machine to stitch through the last few letters as i was afraid of breaking my last needle and then not being able to scrap for the rest of the night. i mean, i can't scrap without my machine! but, no, i wouldn't recommend stitching on that chipboard cover. sigh.
the gallery! there's new stuff from corrie, jill, leah, betsy, Amanda, and staci. go, go, go!
p.s. don't forget to check out the november flea market all decked out in red and green!
