Moments Captured| Machine Stitching

This month I’m sharing a layout using machine stitching. This technique was taught by the lovely Niki at our Getaway in June.

I have a confession to make… before taking this class I had never used my sewing machine! It has been sat in my craft room for years as I was too scared to use it as I had no idea what I was doing. A class with Niki and a few YouTube videos later … Voila! I’m hooked on having stitching on my layouts.

I’ve used the most recent Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection called ‘Willow Lane’ for this layout. However, I’ve literally used a few strips of paper and some sticker embellishments. I used stamps and paint to crate extra interest on the background.

The machine stitching on the layout is quite subtle. I’ve used it to simply add a line of white stitches across each piece of patterned paper. Stitching gives a lovely soft texture to your pages and is a cheap and easy way to add that little something extra.
