Love What You Do

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  -  LOVE WHAT YOU DO  -


We are half way through my reveal week for Scrapbook Nerd, and just like the previous posts, the theme for this month was color.  Today's layout is just the perfect mixed of color, stitching and pretty paper.

It all started with this cut file from the Silhouette Store.  I simply perforated the edge, and spent a few hour stitching the words with embroidery floss that matched the colors of Echo Park's  JUST BE YOU collection.

Once the stitching was finished,  the distress inks were used to color the inside of the words.  Small drops of the ink accompanied of a small cluster  bring the eye to the layout.

For some of the words, I had to combine multiple colors, to obtain the right shade of colors.   The picture of this layout   was kept in B/W, and   i used some of the papers to form a cluster around him.


Before ending the page, I trimmed two edges of the mat, and glued it to one of the patterned paper in the collection.  Here is the final layout:

I love, love this!

The colors  combined with the texture from the stitching are two of my favorite things.  The simplicity of the layout is what makes it perfect.   Don 'r forget to check The Scrapbook Nerd  for all the new releases, and all the materials used in this page.

Remember, I am a comment away if you have any questions on how this came together.

See you all soon!
