The new Documentary collection from Dear Lizzy went up on the American Crafts Blog last week, and I've been dying to share my first layout with you! This layout turned out to be one of my new favorites! I combined hand stitching with 9 different patterned papers from the collection. And I added machine stitching, for another texture on the page.
How To: Cut a large circle from the Wonder patterned paper and then layer it over the Me & You patterned paper. Stitch around the circle, with your sewing machine. Use Sketch Pens with your Die Cut Machine or trace letters for your title onto your background paper. Poke holes around each letter and then stitch using a variety of embroidery floss colors. Cut your title letters on your die cut machine or hand cut them and place in the center of each stitched letter. Use the Noted Thickers and the Cordial Thickers to complete your title. Add a photo on the right hand side of your layout. Punch circle shapes from the Confetti patterned paper. Machine stitch around each circle, then add them to the inside of the large circle. Finish your layout by adding Stickers around the outer edge of the circle.
