Hand Stitching on a Page

I'm back-- at least for today. :) I'll be MIA for a little while while I go to San Francisco! I'm so excited about this trip!! Hopefully I can find some wifi and post while I'm there, but if not, farewell for now.

I made a layout for the Scrap Your Story challenge to use stitching on your layout. I used the new Amy Tangerine handstitching templates to sew the little arrows on my layout. I love these templates! I was wanting them sooo bad. When I got them, I found out they were just what I was wanting them to be! Yay! Love it when that happens!

I used the Allison Kreft "Everyday Eclectic" line from Echo Park. I was just inspired to use this line on this particular layout. I could have used my Amy Tangerine "Yes, Please!" line, but I just felt the urge to use the Allison Kreft line.

Does this layout look familiar? I actually lifted my own page for this page. THIS is the one I lifted! Does it look the same? What do you think? I'd love to know!

Heather I love to see young people so into scrapping it is wonderful. I love your work and I love your blog. You have a new follower. You did such a great job with the scraplift and I think it is a great idea to lift your own layouts :) I agree with you on the stitch templates. I love them too.

What a unique use of stitching. I love how it's not just added texture, but actually part of the embellishing. AWESOME!!!!! :) Thanks for joining us this week at Scrap Your Story!! :) :) :)
