Welcome! I'm glad you found your way here! I hope you arrived from Erin Stewart's blog.
Today, my challenge to you is a simple one, hand stitch on your project. Yup, it's that simple. With Amy Tangerine's Stitching templates it's even easier!

http://paperissuesstore.myshopify.com/collections/amy-tangerine
Hand-stitching is one of my favorite techniques! I love these stitching templates because it makes stitching so easy!
Hand stitching is cathartic for me. I love to hand-stitch on a layout while watching TV. It so relaxing!
I used 3 different stitching patterns on this layout (leaves, zigzag, and a heart).
And here's the completed layout:
I have a great prize for one lucky reader. It's a $20.00 gift certificate to the Paper Issues Store
And to make that $20.00 go even further the winner OR anybody can use the code becki20 when you check out to receive 20% off your entire order!

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on this post. I would really appreciate it if you entered your email address into the box on the right under the "subscribe to Becki Adams blog" title AND if you'd like my Facebook page it would make my day!

The winner will be announced one week from today (May 10th) here on my blog! Good Luck!

  19. I think hand-stitching adds a homespun element to a page like nothing else can. And - to be honest, I'm sewing-machine challenged, so definitely hand stitches are the way to go! ;)
    Such a sweet, soft page - lovely photo of you and your kids!
