American Crafts | Always Do Happy

Just when I think Amy Tangerine has come out with my favorite collection, it's time for a new one and it becomes my new favorite!  :)  The Stitched collection has become a fast, new favorite!  And the Design Team is sharing projects this week on the American Crafts Blog for Stitched Week. I was so excited to have my first layout using this collection, up on the AC Blog yesterday, and wanted to stop in and share it with you today!


Here's how I put the layout together:

Trim the Thrifted patterned paper to 11x11 inches and adhere to White cardstock base. Cut three different patterned papers and place them behind the Wood Frames. Create a loose grid design with your photos, the Wood Frames, and a Die Cut Tag from the Stitched collection. Use the Comrade Embroidery Stencil Kit to add criss cross stitching to the top and bottom of your layout. Embellish each of the Wood Frames with Bits and Stickers. Add the After Glow Thickers to the bottom of the Die Cut Tag to complete your title. Add finishing embellishments to the layout and some machine or hand stitching.

Can't wait to share more layouts with you, using this awesome collection!
