Technique Tuesday – A Stitch Goes a Long Way

Hi Everyone,
 Sorry this post is a bit late in the day – Its funny how quick the day goes by.
 This Tuesday Simple Technique is one of my favorites. It is something that I learned to do at the very beginning of my scrapbooking days and it’s something that I still do today.

It looks like stitching! Sort of like you would do with a sewing machine or by hand, but you really just do it with a pen.  I use a black pen, but you could use any color you want.  Around the edge of the object you make dashes like so – – – – – – – – You can dot in between dashes, but you don’t even have to do that. Or Wendy likes to make little X’s around the object like a cross stitch. You can do this stitching around die cut objects or around a photo.   It’s a simple detail that will make your layouts really pop.
Happy Stitching!   Tina & Wendy
