Sew Somerset Summer 2010 from Stampington Studios

My artist copy of  Sew Somerset Summer 2010 arrived today and should be on the news stands June1.
Wow it is seriously a beautiful magazine and is packed with inspiration. Beth the new editor at Sew Somerset has really put together a wonderful collection of projects and articles in this edition. This is a bi yearly publication filled with creative altered projects that incorporate sewing.

The entire magazine is like a feast for your eyes and the variety of projects in this publication covers a huge range of mediums.

I am going to post some of the photos from the magazine so that my daughter can see The Wedding pages that I had published. Fascinating You was actually one of two pages that I created for a Pink Paislee contest.The challenge was to use their products and incorporate the name of one of their paper lines as the title.  I did not have a lot of left over products and my local scrapbook store had none of the products. I cut the floral designs from the paper to  create embellishments on the page and then added french knots to the center of the flowers. The stems and swirls are chain stitches. 

My scanner did not capture the colors very well on each of the pages. The papers on this page are from K and Company and the colors are vivid and beautiful in person.
3709 is a few shots from my daughters wedding, the middle photo has a Hambly transparency over the photo. The paper collection is Graphic 45 the black dot paper is flocked. I think I bought it from Hobby Lobby.
The numbers are aluminum that I crackle painted and attached to the page.

I hope you have a great week. I am so excited my Helmar design package will be arriving on Thursday. I received an email that the package weighed 18 pounds. It is loaded with goodies from all of the preferred vendors.. Eva from the design team sent me an IM on Skype and showed me everything in the box. Wow what a stash!!

Stay tuned we will see what is in the package on Thursday!
