Hand Stitching with Yvette!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Yvette here, and today I have a fun page I want to share, created with the gorgeous June main kit!  

I started by selecting the patterned papers I wanted to use on my layout (I decided later not to use the blue strip paper;) along with a Die-Cut heart, some white floss for my hand-stitching and a chevron template, created from white cardstock.  

Next, using the chevron template I started tracing the design onto each of the patterned papers and cut them out using a scissors or a craft knife.   

Once I had everything arranged as I like it, I then adhere the Die-cuts hearts and all of the chevrons onto a 12x12 white cardstock.  

Instead of filling the entire background with the pattern paper chevrons and hearts.  I decide to add some texture with some hand-stitching. I use a paper piercing tool to piece holes all around the chevron template and added some simple backstitching using white embroidery floss.        

I also use the 1 canoe 2 Twilight stamp set to create a few flowers to place on top the Die-Cut hearts.

Here are a few close-ups... 

Added a few fussy cut butterflies, a cluster of flowers as well as a few vellum die-cut stems around the page.

 I couldn't help myself from adding some more stitching to my layout :))))  I did this by adding the stitching directly to the top of the hearts and the chevrons.     

I hope I inspired you today to create something beautiful using the June main kit!
