It all started with an idea and some white card stock.
This week at Scrap Your Story, we are all about STITCHING. This was not difficult for me, since I am obsessed with machine stitching! This week I machine stitched, but I also hand stitched (something I don't do quite as often).
First I added some chalk...next some machine stitching. Let me tell ya, it was SO MUCH FUN to add the stitching. I matted my photo with some Amy Tangerine vellum (purchased at Michael's -- Recollections "Signature" pack), and some regular vellum. I used more of the Amy Tangerine vellum for my title, then traced around it with a pink Sharpie. I actually did the trick again where I wrote "favorite color" with my finger on my iPad, and then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out. "You Are My" is April's Studio AE stamp set from Ali Edwards.
I actually did a practice page with this one before starting. I didn't want that page to go to waste, so I used it for several items on this LO. First I used Amy Tangerine's Yes, Please template and hand stitched a flower (totally fun, right)? I cut it out and popped it off the page with pop dots. I also used some of the practice page to write my journaling on (cut it and hid it behind the pic -- just pull the yellow washi tab). There is a stamp set with the same Amy Tangerine collection, and I used the flower stamp on that practice page, cut it out and added a little colored pencil to it before gluing it on. Added some washi tape and sequins and I was finished. I cannot tell you how much fun this was to pull together!
Here are a few closeups!
