The Hoopla Stitching Collection & More


What a fun post I have for you today! Papertrey Ink is finishing up its April release countdown with The Hoopla Stitching Collection. Erin Lincoln is the mastermind behind this collection (and all of Papertrey's stitching dies), and it is brilliant. She has elevated embroidery hoop art to a whole new level! In addition, Erin has a number of new stitched images this month -- sun, clouds, rainbow, cupcake, and alphabets -- which work with Hoopla and many other stitching projects.

Today's products, along with the rest of the April release, will be available at 10 pm EST on April 15.


I have created a piece of embroidery hoop art using a 6-inch embroidery hoop to make the felt circle background, I used Stitched Circles (Smokey Shadow), Hoopla: Stitched Circle Bases (Simply Chartreuse), and Hoopla: Stitched Scallops dies (Raspberry Fizz). The sentiment was cut with the Tiny Stitched Alphabet dies and stitched. How sweet are those tiny letters?!

To the gray circle, I added a darling Stitched Bicycle (I could stitch these all day -- so cute!)


Because it fit my theme SO perfectly, I added a paper tag die-cut with one of the dies from the Make It Market Mini Kit: Holday Pin-Ups collection and stamped with Petite Places: Happy Camper.


In between the Smokey Shadow circle and the Raspberry Fizz scallops, I added some True Black baker's twine. If you look closely, you can see that I stitched it in place by looping regular thread over the twine. The green polka dot part is some fabric I had on hand.

Oh, this is so fun, Amy! I got the bike stitching dies last month, but haven't done anything with them yet. I need to get some embroidery floss to coordinate with my PTI felt....
