DT Practical Scrappers - Handstitching

A new week, a new theme at the On Trend team of Practical Scrappers: handstitching! This one is right up my alley, I add some handstitching to almost all of my layouts. I just love the extra touch it gives to my pages.

I used my Scraptastic April kit for this layout and started off with the Crate Paper DIY Shop papers. It felt kinda challenging to use so much black and white, but with adding some color I think it turned out fine. I also used some houndstooth tissue paper and tape. This is where my latest order from Paper Issues came in and I just had to save it to use on a layout :-)

The photo on this layout is taken during my last trip to Orlando. I have a thing for carousels and for Dr. Seuss, so the Caro-Seuss-el in Universal Studios is my absolute favorite. I found this font to use for my title.

Crate Paper DIY Shop: Design paper, Project paper
Teresa Collins He said, She said: He said quotes paper, She said Die Cuts
Basic Grey Knee Highs: Four Square paper
Studio Calico Snippets: chipboard arrows
Elle's Studio Day to Day: Tabs
Ormolu: exclusive flair
Paper Issues: houndstooth tissue paper, houndstooth tape
White tag

Now it's time for you to show us some handstitching on your projects and share them with us at the Practical Scrappers Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
