So, I had a ball last night at the June Scrapbook Pajama Party hosted by Classygirl! I was able to complete this layout with the sketch that she provided here. (You can see the replay here.) It also gave me a chance to use my new stitched embellishment.
Have you noticed the trend of machine stitching on cards and layouts lately? I certainly have. But, the idea of pulling out my sewing machine everytime I want to add that detail just seemed to be too much. So, I came up with an easier way to add machine stitching to my layouts.
With this technique, you can create a bunch of stitched embellishments at one time and keep it handy for when you need it! Check out the tutorial below and give it a try. You can use different colors of thread and different styles of stitches.
Here's a close up look!
