Hey everyone, Michelle here again.  Today I’m sharing another 2 layouts using my November kit!

 

Last week I talked about fussy cutting.  This week I’m taking about stitching.  Last year I bought myself a sewing machine.  It was a total game changer for me.  I used to oooh and ahhh over layouts with stitching.  I loved the look but didn’t like how time consuming it is to hand stitch.  Now I’m using my machine on almost all of my layouts and I love the effect it creates.

 

For this first layout, I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  I backed all the hearts with 2 different pattern papers in a random sequence.  Of course I had to sneak in a few more of those fussy cut flowers too!

 

 

I love being able to create longer titles by using little alphas and one big word.

 

To finish it off, I just added a simple stitch around the heart and scattered a few embellishments and sequins.

 

 

For my last layout, I really wanted to use this 3×4 card with these photos.  I added them across my page and worked from there by adding layers.

 

 

Then I went a little crazy with my stitching. LOL  I added some around my card and pattern papers.

 

 

Finally I added some multi colored thread on this cute little wood piece.  Isn’t it the cutest?

 

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects as much as I’ve enjoyed being a guest here this month!

 

Thanks for stopping by!
