Valentines Day Party with Crewel and Unusual Kit from Club Scrap

Hello fellow scrapbookers,
Today I would like to share with you a double page layout I did using the Crewel and Unusual Kit from Club Scrap.

First of all I really have a problem with empty space on my layouts! So will playing with the papers I decided to bring out my stash of embroidery floss from when I use to do counted cross stitch (pre scrapbooking days!). First I cut out the the flowers from the patterened paper and glued them on the my layout. Looking at the patterned paper I tried to recreate some of the swirls and drew them on my layout. Take a needle I pre-poked the holes just to make it easier to sew. Don't worry about the pencils lines, they get covered up by thread.

And here it is finished. I decided to add some leaves after I was done sewing the vines. I really like how it turned out.

Here is the finished left side. I took some red floss and went around the patterened paper. Both the gold ribbon and red twine is from Club Scrap.

Here is the left side. I cut the hearts from Club Scraps Patterened paper, punched holes on either side of each heart, and ran some gold and white floss through them, leaving the floss loose, so I could swirl it.

Here's a close up of the banner.
Again with the stitching around the title.I love the cute little doilies I picked up at Michaels on sale.

 Thanks for stopping by today!
