Getting the needle and thread out

One of the classes in Glitter Girl's Scrapbook Survival Guide talked about what to do to make a photo special on a page and she suggested stitching. As I hadn't done any stitching for a while I thought I would break out the thread for this page.


I am finally getting caught up with last year's photos! This is our walk on Christmas Eve and I am currently scrapping Christmas Day.

I had an Amy Tangerine stitching stencil which came in a kit I bought 2nd hand from UKScrappers and so I got that out and used it for the arrows, but drew the heart freehand.



I really enjoyed doing the stitching on this page - I must remember to do it on more pages as I find it very relaxing (although I dislike sewing fabric)!
Apart from scrapping last Christmas, I am busy getting my journal ready for JYC this year. I am also taking part in 'Your December Story' which I am going to include in my JYC for a different perspective this year. My JYC for the past couple of years has been a bit Project Life like, but I will still be using Shimelle's prompts when they are appropriate. What are you up to at the moment?

See you on Sunday for the last of Sian's Story Telling Sunday 3 stories!

I bet scrapping last Christmas is helping you look forward to this Christmas. I can't believe how close it is already. Love your stitching...

..and I'll see you on Sunday!

I think the stitching adds to the cozy feel of the page. Nicely done.

Your stitching is so neat, and it really adds to your layout. Well done, Becky!

It looks lovely Becky! Boy that close to having last year done - I don't think I've done anything of last year's. I'm always amazed at how much you get done and yet work too.
