Hello everyone its Melissa here and I’m so happy to be back with you again, this time sharing a new layout with the gorgeous Daydream collection!! For this layout I really wanted to attempt creating a layout with the B side of ‘STEPPING STONES’ as I’d had an idea for machine stitching in matching colours.  I needed a happy fun photo, and this recent photo of Brielle was perfect!

I tore a piece of the patterned paper, and made sure that the top edge was torn as well.  Then I went to town with uneven stitching in matching colours, back and forth on each stipe until I got the effect I wanted.  Did you know I’ve only recently started machine stitching in coloured threads?

I also did lots of fussy cutting.  I cut one of the floral clusters from ‘GARDEN VARIETY’ a placed it at the bottom of my photo.  I used a couple of papers from the ‘6 x 8 PAPER STACK’ to back my photo, and tucked one of the beautiful ‘PUFFY HEARTS’ to the right of my floral cluster.

I also fussy cut lots of moths and butterflies from ‘ALL AFLUTTER’ to use as embellishments.  I adhered them in positions that colour matched the thread and stripes. 

For my title two of the ‘DIE CUT TITLES’ were perfect, and I placed elements on and around the ‘Sunshine’.  I used a floral cluster sticker from the ‘ACCESSORY STICKERS’.

I finished with my journaling, splatters and some sequins from the ‘SEQUINS & FLOWERS’ pack.

I made a video of my process which you can watch below.

Thanks so much

Melissa xx
