Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you a tutorial for a quilted style layout. If you have seen some of my previews layouts here in the blog you know I love this style because you can use all your paper scraps and display the gorgeous patterns in Pebbles’ collections.
My son is two years old and now more than ever he wants to do everything by himself, I love that, he is decided and very independent, qualities I hope he maintains through the years.
Start by choosing your favorite Pebbles’ papers. I am using the new Tealightful collection which is perfect for spring photos!
Cut narrow strips of paper, all in the same width.
Attach your paper strips to a lightweight paper using liquid glue and cut 1 3/4 inch squares at a 45 degree angle.
Glue your squares to the side of your paper and use your sewing machine to do a zig zag stitch all around your squares. This technique gives you the quilted look and also hides all those little imperfections your collage might have.
Use die cuts and stickers to embellish your paper. The wood die cuts are beautiful! and the stickers have glitter accents with just the right amount of shimmer.
This is my final layout! I love how the squares look, such a beautiful background made with simple strips of paper!
For my title I used one of the wood papers from new the “Simple Life” Collection and my die cut machine to add the “Mr Independent” words.
I hope that you liked this technique and that you give it a try! Search for quilt patterns online and try different designs! If you do please share your creations with us, we would love to take a look!
If you like this technique you can’t miss this other layout I did a few months ago
Have a great week!
