Happy Sunday Friends! This is Maryám and today I’m going to be sharing one of my all-time favorite techniques, which is add hand-stitching on a layout.

Once I was looking through the Pea Pod Parts from the You Make Miso Happy Collection I found one that would work perfect for a title and for adding some hand stitching, so I immediately adhered the die cut to a piece of white cardstock, punched some holes around it, and added some hand stitching. Then, I fussy cut around it and this is how it turned out. 
After that, I started to position all of the elements on my page and I realized that I wanted to add more hand stitching. I put a butterfly and a cute little dragonfly and stitched their “path” from the flowers to where I wanted them to be. I think adding details like this to your pages make them look a lot more fun. 
I also did another of my favorite techniques on this layout, fussy cutting. I cut a bunch of flowers from a patterned paper and you will see that I put them in several places of my layout. 

Here is a full photo of my layout. 
I hope you guys liked this project and hope you give this technique a try. I know sometimes people find it boring or even a little bit stressing, but I promise that once you start then you will not want to stop. Have a great day!
