Home Machine

Welcome back to another layout from LOAD517 Day29
The Matrix – 1999
Create a layout that tells about a decision that indirectly led you to an entirely different experience. I never would have thought I’d end up ____ when I started doing _____.
This was a fun way to start a prompt with a statement to start off my journaling. I had come across some early photos when I was just about to get started with my business venture and this embroidery job pretty well clinched the thoughts of me getting an embroidery commercial machine. found out the home machine could only do so much.
 I used that crazy piece of scrapbook paper that was in my current counterfeit kit: Nature's Party. I really was struggling with using this paper for some odd reason.
I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for my layout:
A fun layout to play with :)
 My journaling spot
 Fun word stickers for the corner cluster. I used brads once again for my embellishment along with a piece of ribbon for a paper strip.
 The small title thought it would reference the small machine well.
  This is the hat, found it was a bit harder to do with the home machine and if I wanted to make this business work and be profitable I would need a larger machine.
Thanks for stopping by once again today to see what I've been doing in my little corner of the world.


  1. Great layout and great job on the hat, I bet that would be hard to embroider on something that is not a flat surface.
