You're Sew Special

This LO uses Jillibean pattern paper, and lots of fun Maya Road shapes from the “Still Sew Cute Chipboard Set”. In the area around the picture I used Maya Road Maya Mists (Granny Smith Apple Green) and a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen to create the oval frame before adding the picture. Also spritzed with the Maya Mist was the Mini Triangle Banner Canvas Pieces which are also by Maya Road. For the title, I used Maya Road (Jonathan) Mini Alphabet Chipboard and October Afternoon Mini Market Stickers over a Maya Road Coaster. The Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page “Loops” set gave an old fashioned look. Also included was a little Jenni Bowlin Vintage Style (black) Button and a Maya Road Kraft Scroll Frame Journaling Tag. The chipboard pieces were painted with Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint (Fired Brick). After the paint dried, I inked the edges of the chipboard pieces with Staz On Ink (Jet Black).

Some of the techniques that I used were border punching, painting, masking, sewing, inking and a little calligraphy on the journaling tag. 

I did this LO for The Crafty Scrapper Design Team in Waxahachie, Texas.


  1. A lovely collage. Great job with the border stitchery and the calligraphy.

  2. Well, This is so lovely!!! I remember you making this layout and it really shows what pride you used in each little detail. Gorgeous!!
