LOVE by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: I love hearts, I love hand stitching, I love using big'n'bold background elements, and I love a big title! So here is the layout I made combining all of these things I love!

JOURNALING SAYS: Everything you do is adorable! Cuz you're just the cutest little girl in the world and I love you!

HOW TO: I started by searching the Silhouette store for a big heart and found shape #61514. Instead of die cutting it, I replaced the blade with a pen and drew the love heart. Then I pierced a hole every 1/4" or so all the way around. To help the love heart stand out from the colorful polka dot paper, I painted it with several coats of white paint and let it dry. For the backstitching, I changed threads every 10 stitches using colors of thread from the colored polka dots in the paper. To define the love heart even more, I used a sewing machine with white thread and straight stitched once inside. Then came the trio of photos, embellishing with Fancy Free elements, and a bit of journaling!

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, die cuts, puffy stickers, wood veneer, dimensional sticker, button, chipboard stickers, tags, journaling card: Fancy Free by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Love cut file: Silhouette; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo; Thread: DMC; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

  5. What a lovely layout! :) Your hand stitching is beautiful, do you use all 6 strands when you stitch? Mine never looks fantastic and I'm wondering if this is the issue.
