Stitching on Paper/ Accent Essentials/ Gypsy

This is a page I worked on last night ( & no, I don't work in any order when I scrapbook). It's a page about my oldest and I decided to show it to showcase stitching on paper. If you haven't yet tried it, it can be tons of fun and adds a pretty texture to your projects. It can also be done before gluing the element to your page, or after. You just have to keep in mind how the paper will fit in your sewing machine.
The die-cut is from Accent Essentials, & I welded it to a circle. The Gypsy allows you to see which size will work for your page.


The title is from Cosmo Cricket, and the collection is one of my favorites. I also added ribbon to the bottom with stiching along the center.

I decided to journal on the circle, and popped the center gradually. Then I added white stiching with a gel pen in two designs along the edges.
