Hello there, friends! I’m back today to share with you one of my favorite techniques when it comes to create a scrapbook layout. If you know my work, you might have noticed that I always try to find new ways to create interest and different textures on my pages. Stitching has become somewhat a constant presence, as I find it beautiful and fun, and allows me to let my creativity fly.

As usual, to make it easier and less time consuming, I use my Silhouette Cameo as my main tool. In this case, it works perfectly to create the pattern and the holes that I need for stitching. It may seem complicated and a bit discouraging at first, but with a little practice it is totally doable and enjoyable.

The beautiful Cupid collection by Sahin Designs was perfect for the picture I wanted to scrap. We gave our first daughter a little stuffed lamb after she turned one. It was our way to try to get rid of her pacifier. To our surprise, it worked like magic. After the first couple of nights, her “bunny” (that’s how she called it) became the best thing ever. I found the perfect quote on one of the cards from the collection I mentioned above. If you would like to know how to transform a printable into a cut file, please read my process in my previous post.

Here is the layout;

Once you create your cut file, you can choose the portion you want to stitch. In this case, I only wanted to stitch around the words, so I selected the whole image and created an outline with the Offset function.

Once the image is selected, you can pick the “perforated edge”option in the “cut settings” function. One thing to pay attention to is the inside portion of the letters. If you want to stitch those as well, make sure to choose “release compound path” and select the individual pieces before applying the “perforate” (not perforate edge) option.
