Hi, and a happy long weekend to those in Australia :)
Today, I wanted to share with you a few layouts I did as my first design team project for “Australian scrapbook ideas” magazine. My assignment was to create 3 double page layouts, all with a similar theme. I dont normally do doubles, so this was a challenge in itself. Once I worked out what I was going to do, the choice of papers was easy. Kaisercrafts ‘Homemade” collection would really have to be one of my all time favorites, and absolutely perfect for the beachy type photos I wanted to use.

- To make the rustic stitches, use a hole punch the same diameter as your string, and punch holes along both sides of the torn edge, staggering the holes. I use a ruler for this to get a straighter edge.
2. Cut a length of string, roughly 3 times the length you are stitching, *TIP: I put a dob of glue on the end of my string to stop it fraying when poked through the paper. Begin by poking the string through the first hole, go underneath, and bring it out from the bottom on the other side of the seam. Continue until you have threaded all the holes. Do the same on the other side. Use tape on the back of the stitching to hold it in place.
I hope you enjoyed my little share. And I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
