Has it really been over a month since my last post??? WOW!!!! Well, I have most definitely been very busy and have a new schedule and will chat more about that later. But I forgot that I did this layout of the kiddo's and since tomorrow (or today for some) is St. Patrick's Day I wanted to share.
Remember The Scrapbook Throwdown with Latrice Murphy that I was participating in? Well, I haven't quite finished all ten days, but this was Day 3 and the challenge was to sew on a layout.
I LOVE to sew on my layouts, but I normally machine stitch so I challenged myself to hand stitch on this layout.
I hand cut the banner and then stitched around the edge. I also stitched around the edge of the punched cardstock.
Prima flowers with bling added to the center. I used scissors for the scalloped borders. ( I really need to get a scallop punch!)
I layered up on embellishments.
When I hand write my journaling I use pencil first then trace over it with an archival safe pen.
(The photo shows the journaling in pencil)
Supplies: Flowers: Prima, Button: K&Company, Green/White Dot paper: DCWV Nana's Nursery-Girl
Other supplies were misc. scraps and pieces.
Thanks for stopping by, and I'm hoping to have more for you in the next few weeks! Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
