Stitching Cut File 34 of 36: Stripes

Thursday, March 30, 2023

For my layout, I cut the Stripes onto white cardstock and then used lots of colors of thread that match Blooming Wild to do a vertical stitch connecting pairs of dots to make chevrons. And then in between I stitched with white thread to make a entirely stitched background! It looks like a lot of stitching but it actually came together in about 4 hours which is pretty fast for a stitched page :) After finishing up the stitching I added three 3x4" photos down the right edge and tucked a ric rac border from the Cardstock Stickers under the right edge. To add some pops of color and interest I placed a small sentiment from the Sticker Book on all the white lines of stitching. For the journaling, I tucked a yellow bracket framed Journaling Spot under the left edge of the photos and wrote with a teal pen. The title "AWESOME" Is fussy cut from Paper 22 and placed between the top photos and then I embellished with transparency words from the Sticker Book directly on the photos. To finish I made three clusters of embellishments around the photos using button Chipboard Stickers, small flower Cardstock Stickers, and little birds trimmed from a border sticker in the Sticker Book. I hope this page inspires you to try this fun and unique Stripes for Stitching Cut File!

Design Team Member Yui Oku created this ADORABLE page! She says, "I love the small Flower Charms in the new Blooming Wild collection so I used all of them in this layout! When I finished stitching, I thought, 'This is not cute, maybe I should untie all the threads and start over... I should have just sewed normally...' lol. But then I put strips of the cute floral Washi Tape between the embroidery which really brought the page to life! I added Floral Die Cuts around my two photos to embellish along with a tab from the Journaling Spots and transparent 'LOVE' letters from the Sticker Book. The navy became a nice contrasting color!"

Here is another example with today's Stripes by Design Team Member Heidi Lewis! She says, "When Blooming Wild arrived on my doorstep I wanted to start creating with it right away! The Stripes is one of the fastest and easiest cut files in the bundle. Using a running stitch and DMC floss 4505 this layout only took me 1.5 hours. Once the stitching was complete, I placed a 4" square photo in the center. I framed the photo with Floral Die Cuts and a title made from the colorful Thickers. A couple of button Chipboard Stickers and transparency stickers from the Sticker Book finish off the page. If you don’t normally do a lot of hand stitching, this cut file is easy enough for beginners!"

Here is another layout made with today's Stripes from the 36 Cut Files for Stitching by Guest Designer Lacey Robin! She says, "On this layout I chose an ombré thread to give it character. I didn’t want to cover all the beautiful stitches so I chose to cut the patterned paper and add it between the stitches. I used a background paper from the Wonders collection and some Simple Stories to embellish!"

Here is a final layout made with today's Stripes from the 36 Cut Files for Stitching by Guest Designer Stemplekunzt! She says, "The stitching files are all so beautiful and once you start you can get addicted to them! I matched my thread colors to Garden Shoppe and used fussy cut pieces from the chevrons from Paper 21 and the words from Paper 23!”
