Hello, Karen here with a tutorial for you on how to incorporate some stitching in your pocket life pages. I use stitching on almost every layout I do, it could be machine stitching or hand stitching, it just depends on my mood & what the paper is 'telling' me to do. Sounds hilarious even typing that, but that's how it works around here.
Firstly, I start with a piece of scrapbooking paper, like this one above, this is from the Amy Tangerine 'Rise & Shine' line that was included in my 'April PL Kit' from Citrus Twist Kits, a needle & thread, whatever you have, I had this gorgeous gold thread in my studio, and the Amy Tangerine Mat & piercing pin.
Start punching holes where you want to place the stitching, I decided to go along the lines of the arrows. Here's a tip, less is more, I chose not to do every arrow, spread the love.
Next, thread that needle & start stitching. It's that easy. Trust me you can do it. Give it a go.
And just like that, you've finished your pocket life card with stitching.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, don't forget to share what you do with your stitching.
Love the gold!ReplyDelete
