Hey there Pebbles Fans, it’s Terhi here sharing some scrapbook-love around the globe! I often find myself scrolling through social media and feel so inspired by all the wonderful scrapbookers and other crafters. This time the scrolling lead me to Paige Evans’ new Facebook group called ‘Paige Evans – Happy Scrappy Place‘ where Paige herself is sharing inspiration, hosting challenges and sharing free cut files every week.
I picked up this wonderful flower bunch cut file, said thank you to Paige, and cut it out using my favorite hot pink patterned paper from Patio Party collection.
Thinking of several ways to use the cut file on the layout, backing it, using it as a stencil or then let it be as it is, I finally came up with an idea of stitching it on the background! If you haven’t used your sewing machine for a while I personally recommend something easier to start with, but of course I found myself doing this tricky cut file and in the end it took one and half hour to finish the job. But it was worth it!
To make sure the hard work of stitching will be visible, I kept the other thread dark brown. This way it peek just a bit from each hole on the layout, and the stitching can be seen much easier.
The bloomy background was wonderful way to start this layout of my younger girl who’s first year in school is about to end. Something to celebrate! There’s some patterned papers making layers behind the photo, and some sweet embellishment like the dimensional butterflies.
Hope you’ll try out stitching on a layout, it’s fun! Thank you so much for coming here today and have a happy day!
