So Sophie from My Mind's Eye and Just Add Butter from My Little Shoebox

This line from My Mind's Eye is called So Sophie. "Open Your Heart"Berry Stem Paper, Royal Paper, Graceful Journaling Card and Graceful "Sweet Chic"Frame (transparency). I love the way these papers look together. Fancy and pretty. This page shows both sides of the paper. I like doing this because I usually can't decide which side is better. I sewed them together like two pieces of fabric then scored the paper so it would fold open. After I did this I realized I probably could have just folded one edge over because you really can't see the stitching. I did stitch around the border of the pattern paper. I embroidered around the journal tag and the twig. The transparency I attached with brads. I love the way it frames the photo. I cut the frame for this one out on the Cricut. I embroidered around the edges then punched some holes and filled them with glass beads. Messy. Again I am showing both sides of this beautiful paper. The original tag said "Happy for you". I used the "for you"on a card. Sorry this is a bad photo. I was trying to finish my pages before leaving for Canada so this is one of those midnight photos. This is the Just Add Butter line from My Little Shoebox. Shawna gave me a ton of goodies so I got a lot done with this. The Just Add Butter-Diecut Cardstock is packed with journalling tags, two borders and 4 corners. The Granny's Apron and Half a Cup paper is double sided. Another layout using the My Little Shoebox paper. The blue paper on the bottom left is the other side of the paper with the houses and cupcakes on it. This paper is perfect for kitchen pictures. I just cut out the images from the paper and used them as die cuts. Cards made with my scraps from So Sophie and Just Add Butter paper.
Pin It!

I always enjoy the variety of your layouts. Like you I seem to always want to use both sides of the patterned paper -- now I have a new idea, thanks to you, of ways to use both sides. Do you use a special size needle when doing your embroidery? How many strands of floss do you use? Have fun in Canada!
