I focused on the February Hoop +Floral Metal Die for this layout. I used the bigger hoop and cut out with 5 different Patterned Paper from the August Paper Kit. I used both sides; one for the hoop and the other for the circle inside. I noticed there were patterns that I could hand-stitch, so I decided to add some for texture. Here are the close-ups of the stitching.
I also used the florals and leaves in the same set and cut them out with 5 different colors from the August Cardstock Kit. I crumpled them a little to add dimension and adhered them to the loop.
I chose the Chipboard Die Cuts for the title and embellishments. I love the gold foil accents on some of the chipboards. I popped some of them up with foam stickers. I also added Multi Color Adhesive Pearls. They match perfectly with the colors of the papers and cut-out pieces.
I love how this turned out! I love adding stitching on paper, it adds so much interest on your layout. I have to admit that it does take some time, but I think it’s worth it!
I will post a reel in my Instagram so you can see the process. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a great week! Natsuko Suzuki xxx
