Madeline


This layout has taken most of the day. I did the stitching around the layout by hand and I didn't realize how long that would take, once that was done the rest was easy. I used felt, vinyl and chipboard Thickers, I love these things! I punched the lacy border on the mat and then back it with real lace. I wanted a really girly layout for this sweet picture of Madeline when she was three years old.

I am suitably impressed with the detailed stitching on this. WOW! I also love the alternating alphas in the title -- very balanced & well done, indeed!

Very pretty! Great job on the stitching. I don't think I would have that kind of patience.

This is just wonderful! Holy moly, that stitching had to take a LONG time! It's fantastic! I have GOT TO get some vinyl thickers! Wow, they look GREAT!

I am so jealous when I see stitching on pages since I can't do that. Turned out beautiful too.

Oh and thanks for the tag :)

What an awesome page, love that hand stitching, that was a lot of work, but the page is beautiful so would say it was worth it.

I love the stitching too. I just got some of the Bazzill in Stitch'z and I'm LOVING playing with them (Without them I could never hand stitch straight enough).
