Stitching on Your Layouts with Melanie!

I LOVE to stitch on my layouts with my sewing machine! I may be a bit addicted to stitching since it appears I cannot stop. After all, it is an economical way to add an extra special touch to your layout. I tell my husband I'm being thrifty...I don't think he really sees it that way though :)

Here are some ways I stitched on my layouts this month.

For my Simple Stories layout...I created a garland by placing the stickers on the layout then stitched right through them.

For my American Crafts layout...I hand cut little chevron/arrow-like shapes then stitched right through them to add an extra embellishment that matched the pre-printed pattern paper.

Finally for my Lily Bee layout I stitched through the hexagons and pattern paper....why use glue when I can stitch :)

Go ahead...try machine or hand-stitching on your next layout!!!
