Stitching - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Well I have to say I LOVE sewing on layouts. Ok I love the effect of stitching  the sewing with the machine part I don't really like. (lets just say me and sewing machines have never really had a great relationship!!) But I think that stitching just adds that finishing touch! I actually think I should do more stitching than I do. 
This layout is  a photo-shoot of my girl earlier this year when she turned six. I have used Maggie Holmes crate paper collection (love this range!) The script paper already had the drops of paint so to balance the page I added the same to my white cardstock. The stamping is done with the Glitz camera roller stamp. As you can see in the detail pics the stitching just adds that extra bit of dimension.

First day of school holidays here! Great to enjoy some extra family time :-) Today I  just wanted to share some simple cards. I like to have a bit of a stash of handmade cards for when I need them.
I normally like to use a simple white or kraft cardstock as my base. Then adding layers and stitching. Also a favorite of mine is tags and twine.

 This Baby girl title was cut on my silhouette cameo in white cardstock and I coloured it with pink ink. This card is also different because it opens in the center. 

 I have also been playing with the sketch pen on my cameo, totally fun! I will share some pics next time.

Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog!
Have a great week :-)

Using the Silhouette Cameo for Titles

There are many exciting ways you can use your silhouette cameo to create titles for layouts. In these layouts I have tried two different ways.
The first layout I have used a cut file downloaded from the silhouette online store. I have made it to the size I like and then cut it on this red patterned paper. Very easy and effective! 


 papers and stamps from Studio Calico

This next layout I used a font I liked and typed up this saying as my title using the silhouette studio software. I then cut it out of my background paper to have the negative  I then put a plain paper behind the negative to make the letters stand out. Also simple but very effective!

So how do you cut titles for your layouts? Please share with me your favorites!

hello....project life

yes I am still doing Project Life! I have been slack in sharing my scrapbooking as usual! but busy enjoying life! I love the concept of project life - documenting the everyday. Keeping memories of our everyday life and moments. 

Here are some close up's and details...

I am such a fan of Studio Calico products so I was super excited to join their subscription club! They have Project Life Kits, Scrapbook Kits, card kits and lots of add on kits. For the last 3 month I have been receiving the Studio Calico Project Life Kit. They are FULL of goodies! The quality of the 3x4 and 6x4 cards is just fantastic. This weeks project life was created with some of my SC Project Life Kit. 

Here are some close ups and details....

Enjoy the rest of your week
