Layout Challenge: #53 of 210

The challenge this month at Scrap Our Stash is to stitch on your layout.  Be sure to check it out and enter your own project for the month.  I love the look of stitching and there are so many ways to achieve it.  You can, of course, use your sewing machine.  (This is actually the only sewing I have ever done – on paper!)  Or you can poke holes with your paper piercer and connect them with a marker, use a marker to make “dashes” that resemble stitching, or what I did on my layout – stamping.  The CTMH Simple Stitches stamp set is one of my favorites.  It is faster than actually sewing and because the stamps are acrylic the are very easy to line up.  I created the look of stitching on the title as well as around all the blue photo mats.  It is a great look for any layout and often adds the perfect extra touch.

    This looks great, nice and bright! Love the “stitching” under the title, you’d never know it wasn’t real!
