DT Choice: Sewing on a page

Jennifer Larson here, and I have to admit that I sew on a layout whenever I get the chance. I wanted to share some ideas for how I determine where to sew on a page. Here’s the layout:

I chose to stitch in a few ways on this page that are pretty typical for me. As you can see above, I sewed the little letter stickers down for the title. I tend to do that to keep them on the page.

In this close up, you can also see that I sewed embellishments down as well. I tend to do that with a banner, like I did here, or tags.

With this final shot, you can see that I also looked for lines in the patterned paper and added stitches to the paper’s lines, just to add a little texture. Here’s some sewing ideas I might use for other pages:

  1. sewing down a thin strip of paper
  2. sewing down journaling strips
  3. anchoring acetate embellishments
  4. sewing down photos
  5. adding photo corners or frames
  6. sewing lines for hand journaling.

Thank you for letting me share some ideas for adding hand or machine stitching to your pages! If you try something out, please share your page on the Scrapbook Circle Facebook Page, and happy sewing!
