Scrap Your Story - Stitching

It's another Friday! You know what that means right?! Other than being hubby's birthday weekend, it means that it's a Scrap Your Story reveal day! YAY for a technique challenge that is sure to please. We're talking stitching this week - faux, hand, machine doesn't matter as long as it's got the "look."

Don't forget that our challenge schedule is:
 Week 1: Use it (you will be given an item you must incporporate).
Week 2: Theme (your layout and/or photos needs to show this theme).
Week 3: Sketch (flip it, rotate it, tweak long as we can see the basics there).
Week 4: Technique (we will describe/show a technique you must include somewhere)

I do a lot of machine stitching so I switched up my routine by switching my thread colors. Why do I get in such a rut and always leave neutrals at the ready? The red is just so much fun!

This page had been started as a Let's Get Sketchy March entry and wasn't finished in time, but since I'd already planned to do machine stitching I switched it over for our reveal today. So here's the sketch that inspired the look:

Papers are MME Kraft Funday.
Other materials that I used include Ranger Enamel and Glossy Accents, Distress Stickles and Ink in Peeled Paint;  AC Knock Outs Christmas Punch, Jenni Bowlin mini alphas, AC Thickers, Kiwi Lane Templates Adventure 1 and 5, Washi by Love My Tapes, MME, and WRMK; and machine stitching.

And now to go celebrate with the hubby while you all cook up some fabulous pages!


  1. What a fun LO! Those pictures are awesome!

  2. You're right. I suppose a rut wouldn't be a rut if we didn't repetitively used the same thing. Making a change almost always pays off and it does so here on this layout. Nice job.

  3. What a fabulous layout...those pictures are just too adorable!! :)

  4. What a gorgeous layout. Love the photos and you are right that red stitching is gorgeous. Love the colours and that pop of green...

  5. oh my! I love the pops of green in this!! great page!


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
