Project - Themed Projects : Umbrellas

<p>I love to use machine stitching to attach embellishments securely to my layouts and projects.</p>
<p>For this layout, I stitched the velvet scalloped ribbon borders in place, stitched the ribbon &quot;sun&quot; to the cardstock and stitched the journaling strip to the layout.</p>
<p>These are all older photos I took when I had a film SLR camera and I had taken both black and white and color photos. I ended up wanting to use just this one color photo with the rest being black and white. To emphasize the color photo and rain/umbrella theme I used a circle cutter (Coluzzle) to cut circles from several different papers and cardstocks and then tucked them halfway under the photo to create the rainbow.</p>
<p>The cloud and raindrops were cut using a digital download design from Quickutz for the Silhouette. Because I was cutting them from a thicker paper (glitter Doodlebug paper) I left the cutting mat in the machine and repeated the cut several times before removing the cutting mat from the Silhouette. Before adhering the die cuts I added some adhesive to my layout and randomly added the American Crafts ribbon to the adhesive in a circle shape. Then I machine stitched the ribbon in place to secure. Then I adhered the die cuts to the layout with pop dots.</p>
<p>The umbrella is another digital download design from Quickutz for Silhouette. I ungrouped the images in the Silhouette software and cut each individual piece out using different colors of paper/cardstock and then assembled the die cut to my layout, adhering the umbrella with pop dots.</p>
<p>Thanks for looking!</p>
