The Sewing Room Die

As I said yesterday, I've been playing a round
with the new Tim Holtz Alterations Die called Sewing Room. It's a three piece set including the dress form, a button, a spool and is FANTASTIC. This is my favorite new "tool". I purchased mine from an Etsy shop call "its always fabulous"... and the price was!  Check it out. She has lots of Tim Holtz products,  Melissa Frances, 7gypies, Jenni Bowlin and more.

This was my first try. I glued a piece of light weight cardstock to the 
kraft paper then ran it through my Sizzix Vagabond. I then cut the dress section, trimmed it, applied tape and added it to that first double layer. Inked some highlights along the left side with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I can't remember the name of this paper, but I had a lot of scraps 
in my box. Used more scraps for the border pieces. Trying to thin things down a bit. 

Stuck in a needle and thread from my sewing box.

The banner is from My Mind's Eye, buttons are by American crafts and Baker's Twine.

Did some "accessorizing" with lace, a rhinestone, a mini rose 
and trim. Wish real dress making was as simple! I'd have a closet full!
Have a Happy Day!
