Sew Dang Cute! Bo Bunny & Dusty Attic!!
I used the wonderful Crazy Love collection to create this page for the Bo Bunny 'Sew Dang Cute' assignment! Well, this was no chore for me....I love to stitch on my pages whether it's machine stitching or handstitching! For this one I mainly did machine stitching, I used 3 different types of stiches, the regular, zig-zag (on the circle design) and a fancy edge stitch (around the outer edges of the pink paper). Don't shy away from trying some of those fun fancy stitches on your sewing maching, just practice a little on a scrap piece of paper to build the confidence to try it on your real page :) ......another TIP: When adding button embellishments to your pages, take the time to actually sew the buttons on, I find it makes a big difference in giving your page a more 'finished' look!....
I added some awesome Dusty Attic chippies to this layout too. I just LOVE the DA butterflies! For this one I simply painted the butterfly with a little white paint and then used some chalk ink to tint the butterfly in random places. Then I coated the whole with with some 'Star Dust' Stickles to give it a whimsical look. I did the same for the DA title chippie.....I just tinted the bottom of the letters with some pink chalk ink and then coated the whole thing with Stickles...
