New Coptic Stitched Journal and a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Hi everyone! Thanks for your sweet comments on my last post. I am so enjoying being part of the PLS design team! I have a new project up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today and I wanted to share it here as well. I created a coptic stitched journal with the Apple Cider Collection.
I know I've talked about coptic stitching before on this blog, but I cannot tell you how much I love it! It is so nice to be able to stitch up a journal for a friend or even use the technique for creating a mini album. You can find the YouTube video I learned from by clicking here.

As I said before, I used the Apple Cider collection from PLS for this journal. I adore this collection. The colors are just gorgeous and could not be better for this time of year. I threw in a few tabs from the Nature Walk collection, which is equally wonderful. Here's a shot of one of the dividers inside the journal:

I have also picked a random winner for the PLS giveaway. Drum roll please......

The winner is...... Chark! Yay! Please email me at and we will talk about the details. Thanks everyone!

Today is my official introduction on the Pretty Little Studio blog! I am so excited to make my debut as part of this amazing team of ladies. Here's a link if you'd like to check it out: We were asked to create a layout for our big debuts, and here is mine:
I mixed collections on this one, using a bit of the new Neapolitan collection and the Nature Walk collection. If you haven't worked with PLS products yet, you are missing out! The colors are gorgeous and collections mix so well. The new Neapolitan collection is especially gorgeous! 

In honor of the design team introductions, PLS is giving away a different prize every day! I think I am last in line, so go back to the other posts and see if you can still enter to win!

I am also giving away a PLS goodie here! Leave me a comment for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to Pretty Little Studio. I'll announce a winner on September 16th, so be sure to stop back by then! :)
