Hello crafty friends! Rita here today with a new layout using the „I love you snow much“ Cut File.
This year I'm changing my Project Life Album from 12x12 to 9x12. It's way more handy and I needed a little change. I don't want to limit the album to pocket pages, but also incorporate some layouts here and there. So this is how the idea for this layout was born.
Just this weekend we had a lot of snow. It was the perfect occasion to snap a couple of photos. I wanted a mostly white photo. And I already knew which Cut File I wanted to use for this one. I cut my 12x12 cardstock to my needed size, printed my photo out and put it in the middle of my cardstock. The Cut File came on top. And this is when the „real“ work started: hand-stitching!
I really underestimated this one. It took me quite some time. But once I've started, I didn't want to stop. I watched a movie and stitched and it was really relaxing. You should definitely try it out! I used three different colors for each line, and I love the effect it has.
After the stitching part was finished, I fussycut some elements out off two Simple Stories „Freezin' Season“ papers (which were included in the „Hipster Holiday Kit“) and used some stickers from Crate Papers „Snow and Cocoa“ sticker sheet and snowflake stamps.
This was the first layout for CliqueKits without using acrylic paint or watercolors by the way. Something unusual for me! But I liked it. Sometimes you just have to try something new. I hope you feel inspired to use this Cut File for your snowy photos. Or even try some handstitching?! Whatever you will create, be sure to share with us, we would love to see!
Thanks for stopping by & see you soon!
