It’s “Sew Easy” (and time consuming)

Hi friends,

I am doing a senior prom layout today.  It was easy but time consuming (just like the title says).

I looked through all of my “Sew Easy” stencils and decided to put two different hearts on the layout.  I could have free handed other designs but I decided that prom was a perfect time to use hearts.

The sewing tools needed for papercrafting.

The stencil I used, the thread I used, and I also needed a piercing mat and a paper piercer.

First you put your stencil on top of a piece of paper (the heavier piece of paper is better to sew on) and that is placed on the piercing mat.  Then you pierce all of the holes into the paper.  Finally you start sewing starting on the back side of the page.  Finish up on the back side of the page and tie the knot there.

The back of the paper after I sewed on one heart.

The finished page. It is a lighter shade of gray than the picture shows.

After sewing the hearts I matted the pics and adhered them to the page.  A really simple but pretty layout.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hope to see you all tomorrow!

God bless!

  1. Cute page, So many different ways to put embellishments on your layouts. It’s good to refresh our minds and try new things!

  2. All the work paid off. Turned out real nice. Pink thread for pink hearts and picking up the pink in the border. You made them a day to remember.
