Hi everyone and welcome back to the Cocoa Vanilla Blog! Today’s topic is sewing, so for this layout, I used my sewing machine and also did some hand stitching. Today I’m featuring the wonderful and colorful Bohemian Dream collection.
I chose the B side of the Flower Child paper for my background. Then I ripped a wide strip from the Dreamer paper and a thinner one from the Gypsy Heart paper and stacked them together at the center of my page. In this layout I showcased two pictures of my younger daughter on the beach. These days I’m missing open spaces so much. Behind these two photos, I placed 4 of the 3″x4 “cards from the Beautiful Mess paper and I sewed all the edges with different types of stitches.
For my title, I used my Silhouette Cameo. I cut out the word happy from the Abundant paper and hand stitched it with white thread. I also cut a bigger outline of the word from vellum. I adhered the word to the vellum with foam dots and placed it under the photos.
I embellished the page with some flowers and a butterfly from the die cut shapes and also a flower from the vellum flowers. The rest of the embellishments are from the sicker sheet.
And finally some enamels dots… almost a must-have for me. I think they add such a nice touch to any project, don’t you agree?
I really love to add some kind of stitched to my projects, because it gives interest and texture. Do you usually do that? I hope you like this layout and inspires you to create something beautiful today!
Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
