A sweet page with stitching

Here's a scrapbook page I completed this week. I am really enjoying stitching on pages and I think it worked particularly well here.  

I used a mist spray with a butterfly stencil to add to the patterned paper background. The butterfly mask is an acetate one I found on Ebay, which is described as an airbrush stencil. It's not as sturdy as the Crafters Workshop type stencil but does the job well.

After I had added the layers of papers and embellishments I sketched out the design for the stitching on the back of the page. It's based on a motif in the book "Doodle Stitching" by Aimee Ray. I bought this book ages ago and then wondered why I had. Now I know!

I thought the finished page needed a little more texture and so I used my sewing machine to stitch on some daisy lace and a strip of felt.

A little button finished off the stitched motif. I loved sewing on the page - look out for more stitching on pages soon!


  1. Beautiful I love all that stitching it's amazing Emy :)

  2. Gorgeous page Emy, lovely stitching & love the colours too.

  3. The stitching looks super on this layout. Did you do it by hand?


  4. Hi Tracey, yes it's by hand. I'm not that neat on the machine!

  5. Love it Emy. Especially like how you've offset the sundae glass stitching so it goes onto the photo - it works well. The addition of the lace and felt is gorgeous. x

  6. Love this! Great arrangement and colours :) Love how tactile it is, too.

    1. Thanks Ashley - I'm a big fan of your scrapbooking!
