I love to use stuff and techniques that are not intended for scrapbooking! One of them is to stitch on my layouts. I am not an embroiderer and expert, but I do have needles and thread at home. The projects that I do make are never especially complicated or hard. On this first project I am sharing today I used a template by Amy Tangerine. The template has like 8 different words on there and it has holes that you trace. I then use my needle to poke holes which makes it easier to stitch. Also I just use the old up and down stitching method, you know up in one hole and down the other, nothing complicated at all.
This page is in one of my traveler notebooks so I took another paper, trimmed it down and made my layout on that and just adhered that into my TN.
This next one is made with the same template as the one before. As you can see I usually use stitching for titles.
I like how the stitches gives the page some dimension and I like to use fun colors!
I also have used this technique for when we go on roadtrips. I find a map of our route and stitch it in. I love looking back at these maps!
I hope that this gives you a few ideas on how to use stitching on your projects!
Thanks so much Lisa!
