How stitching can really ‘make’ your page without the need for lots of embellishments
- Bo Bunny Oliva papers-Cashmere, Moonlight & Nectar Basic Grey
- Basic Grey Wander stitched brads
- Sewing machine-black thread, brown thread
- Basic Grey File Tab
Step 1: Place your photo on your LO so you can see where your colour blocks will look good.
This will work well for any size LO-I’ve scrapped it in 8.5 x 11″ but it would work just as well for 12″x 12″ – you would just use more colour blocks.
Step 2: Cut your Cashmere and Moonlight paper to provide the colour blocks on your page-leaving room around them for your stitched border. Mine are 14cm x 6 cm and 14cm x 4cm.
Step 3: Machine stitch a messy border around the patterned paper with black thread. Stitch some journaling lines.
Step 4: Add a brad in amongst the journaling lines just to look cute! I’ve used a Basic Grey Wander stitched brad -but ANY large brad would do just as well. Try searching “Stitched Brads” in Anna’s store and a whole bunch of fantastic brads will come up.
Step 5: Stitch on a file tab and add your title.
Step 6: Thread brown cotton through your sewing machine and stitch a messy border around your whole page-going around twice. All done.
