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.
