8 Today | Amanda Lawrence

Today I'm sharing a close up look at my layout, which was the sample for my December Cybercrop challenge, which is happening now over in The Scrap Suite.

My challenge is called 'Stitched Up' and is to use machine or hand stitching on your project. You all know how much I loooove my hand stitching so it seemed appropriate. 

I cut out the number '8' and all the circles on my cameo. These exact cuts aren't in store but you could achieve the same look with the 'bubbles' creative cuts we have available. I wanted the number to pop so I hand stitched around the outer edge of it. I also stitched around the outer edge of the cardstock to create a frame.

Once I'd inlaid all the circles with patterned paper it didn't need much in the way of embellishments to finish it off. I simply added a lace doiley, some wood veneer and flair. I also added a few little 'x' stitches here and there to anchor all my pieces together.

I hope to see your entry for the 'Stitched Up' challenge soon. You can find all the details you need to enter over in our facebook group, The Scrap Suite.

Happy creating,
