Hey friends! It's Kira and I am back with what might be my favorite layout of all time. And it's all thanks to this cute little banner!
started by using one of the exclusive cut files this month, and used
the draw feature to trace it on some fabric. Then I used a simple
backstitch to stitch around the word "gather" in blue. Once I stitched
the word, I cut the fabric out in the banner shape I liked. I used a
skewer stick for the dowel and machine stitched to attach it. I tied on
some embroidery floss on each end of the dowel to "hang" the banner.
used an enamel dot (and a tiny bit of hot glue) to attach the banner to
the page. I grabbed the Whimsical thickers included in this month's
embellishment kit to create a flower cluster at the top of my banner.
background paper is Paper 16, which has this gorgeous ombre rainbow
heart pattern on it. I decided to play with color blocking to decide on
the placement of my photo since my boys are wearing blue and green
shirts. And it worked out nicely since I had stitched my banner in blue
I fussy cut another large floral piece from
Paper 3 and placed it under my photo and under the banner. I grabbed
more elements from the die cut pack, puffy stickers and rub on sheet to
color block around my page.
I love how this page
turned out and you'll definitely be seeing more of these embroidered
banners from me in the future! Thanks for stopping by!
