It's Time to Nip & Tuck

This week's Heart2Heart challenge is all about stitching - real or faux - your choice. I chose to use real stitching on my layout, which I absolutely love and need to use more often in my creations. Most of the time I would use faux stitching because I would be so afraid I'd mess up my page with real stitches and the paper(s) would be wasted. BUT now that I know it's really quite easy to do, I will stitch for real more often.

I used stitching to create the ruffle under the B&W photo, to make the flower at the top left of the B&W photo, a decorative flower stitch along the left side of the black cardstock and a straight stitch on the other 3 sides. LOVE how the stitching really makes this layout even more beautiful!

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart unless noted:

  • X7166B Claire paper pack
  • 1385 White Daisy cardstock
  • 1386 Black cardstock
  • Z1829 Glitter Paper
  • Z1790 Cricut Artiste cartridge (letters)

Okay, now it's your turn to use some stitching - real or faux - in your artwork then share it with us at Heart2Heart.
