Stitching on Paper

Good Morning everyone!

Today is Technique Tuesday over at Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings - the blog for Scrapbooker's Paradise. This week, I get to be the member of our design team who is sharing a technique.

Now, this technique is not new. It is actually really ooooold... possibly older than scrapbooking, even! We're going to be talking about stitching on paper! This is a fun and easy way to add a little dimension and texture to your scrapbook pages and cards!

With different stitches to use and a rainbow of colours of embroidery floss, the options are nearly endless with this simple technique.

With Valentine's Day on the way, I thought I would follow that theme with my scrapbook page. I had a lot of fun capitalizing on the different lines of Valentine's Day themed papers from a few different companies with this project! I just love Valentines themed displays in stores!! Even dumpy places like Walmart can look pretty this time of year.. so, you can imagine how pretty the Valentine's Day aisle looks at our local Scrapbooking Store!

I used a few different but similar techniques for stitching on paper with this scrapbook page. You can learn about them all over at Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings. While I unfortunately did not have a little video to show you, I did post plenty of photos (like the ones below), so please go have a peak!
