Challenge #18 – In Stitches

Have you seen this photo on Pinterest? source

Gorgeous, right? I had just pinned it before my October kit arrived. Imagine my delight when I opened the kit to find this patterned paper:

And then this sampler-inspired one by Crate Paper:

Love! These two sewing-themed papers have inspired our next challenge, In Stitches. All you have to do is add stitching or sewing to your layout. Whether you use a machine or a needle and thread, incorporate some kind of stitching on your page. Here’s my take:

I fussy cut the spools as accents and used the sampler paper as my background.

I stitched my title by hand, and although it took a little while, it was fairly simple. First, I drew my title in pencil. Second, I poked holes about 1/8th to 1/5th of an inch apart along my pencil lines. Last, I stitched my way back and forth across the title with embroidery floss.

The banner rub-ons and alpha stickers are from previous Scrapbook Circle kits, but everything else is from Fresh Picked. Ready to play? Here’s how:

1. Create a layout satisfying the challenge. We would love to see a Scrapbook Circle kit in action, but any materials will do.

2. Post your layout to your blog, a gallery, or our Facebook page. Come back to this post and leave a comment with the direct link to your posted page.

3. Deadline to enter is Wednesday, November 2nd, 9:00 pm Pacific.

One randomly selected participant will win…

Hallow’s Eve – the Halloween Kit! Good luck and happy scrapping!
