When I first saw the Stitched with Love Borders and Centers Round 2-3/8″ by JustRite…I knew I had to have it. I’ve been sewing nearly as long as I have been putting special things into scrapbooks…let’s say thirty some years. So this set fit right into my creative hands.
My challenge for this post was to limit the number of things I knew I could create with the set. (*sigh*) But my feature project came into clear focus a week or so ago when I decided to get back to an old tradition~making my daughter’s Easter dress. Then, she said she was ready to learn to sew and this layout was born. (The dress isn’t quite finished yet…)
Let me tell you a few simple instruction on how to create the elements on this layout. I made the half circle embellishments first. Not tricky at all, once you know what to do. First, begin by picking some pigment ink. I chose silver. Load up your stamp with plenty of ink and impress the image onto colored paper. Add ultra-fine detail embossing power, shake off any excess powder and heat to set. Repeat two more times.
Then die cut use Spellbinders S4-114 Classic Circles SM, #4 (counting #1 at the center.) Then cut them in half, using a paper trimmer…like this:
Cut/emboss S4- Labels Four, #6. Stamp with “Love” heart in brown dye ink, color with Copic markers and add journaling.
For the title, stamp the “Stitched together with Love” sentiment onto colored paper using pigment ink. Heat emboss using clear ultra-fine embossing powder. Color the spool with Copic markers. Cut/emboss using Spellbinders™ S4-137 Classic Scalloped Hearts. Add dotted outline.
Stamp the flowered heart with the ric-rac border onto colored paper. Color with Copics. Die cut with Spellbinders™ S4-114 Classic Circles SM, #4.
Put the layout together by placing the matted photos in an attractive grouping near the center and sprinkle the half circles around to support the feel. Add the die cut/stamped elements to finish it off. Stunning!
