Girls Paperie: 2 you didn’t see


I sent five layouts in to Margie for her appearance on HSN yesterday. My hope being a few would work for her – and she’d have choices. I assumed she wouldn’t have time to show every page, but that having options in such a situation would surely be good. Anyhow, today I’m going to share the two you didn’t see…

I used blue thread + some Tim Holtz distress stickle “dots” around the edge on this one. The Girls’ Paperie die cuts are so mcuh fun – love them on this page (the ledger is one of my favorite papers!)

Then I used another fave paper – the quilted one (that’s what I call it)…

I stitched most of the spots where (on the paper) white stitch-like marks appear…

Until Matilda (aka old sew machine) got cranky. It didn’t take as long as you might think and was loads of fun. Stitching + Paper Girl (this line of paper) = fantastic. LOVE IT!

So much fun playing with pretty paper going on around here… until next time, happy crafting!

  1. Both pages are great but I LOVE the first one. The blue thread border with the dots of color is funky and cool but doesn’t distract from the photos. Nice!

  2. I love your blog and your work. Though you don’t know me, I just wanted to let you know I did get the Girls Paperie kit on HSN yesterday based on your great recommendation! Can’t wait to get it and play! 🙂

  3. Love the “patchwork” page. Can’t believe how big the girls are getting…love that layout too!!!! Sewing on layouts just adds so much. 🙂
