JANEY GIRL by Paige Evans
Notes: I'm super inspired by the meticulous hand sewing Sasha Farina does on a lot of her layouts and wanted to give that technique a try. After piercing the holes I crawled into bed and sewed while I watched a movie. I love multi-tasking!
How to: Place adhesive across a chipboard circles piece then adhere circles punched from patterned paper to most of the circles; adhere the embellishment to the center of a kraft cardstock layout base. Tuck three photos under the left and right edges and add triangle sequins to the photos. Embellish the circles of the chipboard element with brads, buttons, sequins, the date made with white mini number stickers, and a cork "hello" tag. Stitch "x"s across the sides using white floss. Print a large title, place it across the bottom of the layout, use a paper piercer around the edges to make a template, lightly connect the dots with a pencil so you can see the holes and where you need to stitch, then stitch through with light blue floss.
