I love the idea to use a die as a guide for faux stitches. Thank you for the inspiration!
I love the sense of fun in this layout and using the circle die for pen stitching was so clever!
Love this - so simple in design, yet by the time you were done, all the elements really turned the layout (and card) into something truly special! Bookmarked.
Great video, for something you don't usually do - it rocks!
Your layout and card are fantastic! Love them!
Love that card!

Galleries: Scrapbooking, Cardmaking
Hi everyone! I am back with another Seeing Double video tutorial for you! For today's tutorial I focused on creating a scrapbook layout and card focusing on the same design elements - circles. I used goodies from the brand NEW Boy Crazy collection by My Minds Eye along with some papers by Echo Park and Pebbles and alphabets from Simple Stories from my stash.
I tend to be a very linear scrapper - I like my straight lines and use a ruler every chance I get. ;) To mix things up a bit I decided to focus on circles. Lots and lots of circles. They are the main design element on both my layout and card and lend themselves to a very fun and festive feel which was perfect for these quirky photos of my youngest Brandon and his best buddy Darren. The circles help to add a lot of movement to my page along with a longer title that has been laid our vertically and along a curve.
I often call myself a card making scrapbooker (or is that scrapbooking card maker! LOL) and creating a card or two after I finish making a layout is something I do quite often. I already have all of the supplies I need right out on my work table, and it's a great way to use up those smaller pieces of paper leftover from your layout. You will see in the video that I used circles in very much the same way on my card as I did on my layout.
