Back to School

Yes we are officially one week into the school year. I figured it was appropriate to take you back to school. This layout was from the Fall 2011 issue of Scrapbooking and Cards Today.

(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Fancy Pants Designs Patterned Paper/Rubons/Buttons/Chipboard, Basic Grey Brads, DMC Floss, Stampin Up Punch, Dymo Label Maker, Paper clip and font Traveling Typewriter(journaling) and Learning Curve (title) downloaded from the internet)

Have you ever noticed I don't scrap in chronological order. I dug these photos out of the bottom of the barrel. I kind of like reliving our memories out of order I guess I am quirky that way. 

To make your own hand stitched title like mine simply print your title using your word processing program. I use MS Word. Temporarily adhere your title on your layout and use a paper piercer to poke holes along the print.


Once your holes are poked remove the printed title, remove any leftover adhesive and simply stitch your title.


You can make just about any custom title using this technique. Thanks for joing me today. Stay tuned in for more from Scrapbooking and Cards Today.


Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!
