NinaB Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to the NinaB Designs's 2nd blog hop! We had a great time last month and we just want to thank you for your enthusiasm and encouraging words. The NBD team has new projects to show you today featuring NinaB Designs Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements), The Craft's Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling. We have added a new twist to our hop. Not only do we have tons of inspiration for you, but we also are joining in the Crafty Friends' challenge that you can participate in. And of course, there will be prizes up for grabs! You will find more info below, but first...here is my project:

I used the The Craft's Meow stamp set Mother and Father and paired it with the Spellbinders dies Sewing Elements and the little heart from Home Sweet Home.  The patterned paper is Every Day Moments from Teresa Collins and love the blue/yellow color combination.  I stamped the sentiment using Memento Paris Dusk just above the sentiment on the patterned paper of {memories} what I will remember most... which I found most fitting. 

For the sewing machine die cut itself, I stamped the dots from Vintage Backgrounds using Memento Cantaloupe ink onto Sweet Corn cardstock prior to die cutting.  Here is a close-up of the sewing machine die cut:

Adding a little Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders Endless Waves to the base of the sewing machine.
