|Posted: 5/2/2013 9:29:14 PM|I am so inspired by her Layouts, especially the stitching.
I do not own a silhouette so how can I possibly try to do that?
I own Amy Tan's embroidery stencils(?) but what Sasha does is so different.
Any help would be appreciated.

She hand stitches them all (even though it is so neat it looks machine stitched!!!) and I did read some of her tips somewhere and but I can't remember where. I do remember that she uses only two threads of the embroidery floss (just cut it to the size you want then pull the strands apart). You need to pre pierce the paper as you would with the Amy T kit and then use back stitch.
Even though you don't have a silhouette I still think you could use punches or fussy cut patterns from PP and then stitch around them.
Hope this helps, if I can find the link to the tips I will post it for you

I love her stuff. I've printed out fonts from the internet and used them to stitch. I've used Silhouette shapes as well. You just need to cut/print the thing out you want to stitch and then use a paper piercer or something small and sharp to poke the paper. It makes stitching easier. I love the concept of the We R Memory Keepers stitching tools but the thing doesn't pierce the paper. The concept is great but the tool sucks.
I know Sasha uses the designs on the paper, Silhouette cuts and even the digital stamps available from Studio Calico to create her designs. I would love to have a stitching sleepover with her.

Love this! Thanks for the link, her style is amazing, and the stiches...OMG! Delicious!

Her work is gorgeous. I just did some embroidery on paper, and I admire her even more now. Mine took me a couple hours! More work than I'm willing to put in on a regular basis, but I sure love the look.
