Today, I am sharing a layout I made of my son, Max. I started with the Big Dipper Add on from Studio Calico. However, the papers were not really working for me. I think it is because Max is in a wood play house (though a little hard to tell) and the papers in the Big Dipper Add on felt less outdoors-ey and more city-ish (are those words??) Anyways, I ended up using some embellishments from the Big Dipper Add on but switched out the paper and added some other embellishments, as well as stitching. I used the Amy Tangerine Embroidery Stencil Kit for the stitching. I was hesitant to buy the stencil but I am glad I did. It makes stitching easy!
One thing I have definitely learned about myself is I really enjoy getting kits because there are a lot of times things I would not normally use and it "stretches" me. But on the other hand - as you can see from THIS POST - I don't really like to confine myself to "just the kit". I like to add in things from my stash. Everyone works differently, and you have to find what works best for you.
Here is my layout - using some My Mind's
HERE is a link to my layout at Two Peas, which shows a lot of the products I used.
Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
