The new CTMH Ruler!

Have you seen this baby yet?

Even if you had noticed it in the new Idea book--bet you didn't quite get what was so special about this simple little (well not so little measuring in at a full 14") clear ruler. It has 2 rows of holes in it--evenly spaced as well as a red guide line for a zig zag pattern--to assist us sewing challenged scrapers. I just had to have this one, and as soon as it came in I got right down to playing.......
here's the layout I used it on....
Note the evenly spaced stitches on the sorbet cardstock strips, as well as the zig zag stitching where the pattern paper lays. The layout is still waiting for my daughter to let me know some of the things she liked best about going to camp so that I can finish the journaling on this layout! ( I need to work on taking more time to make sure that my layouts are straight before I take my pics--sorry I will get better at this)

 Here's a great close up of some of the stitching on the layout as well as some of the terrific flowers that I cut out with the new exclusive CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, and then stamped using Hooray Bouquet stamp set D1491.
