Bright Ideas

I’m taking a class over at Studio Calico this month, entitled “Bright Ideas”.  You know what I love about it?  Two things.  a) it’s challenge based and b) there is inspiration to use the challenges on things other than a scrapbook layout.  I love it.

This particular challenge was to hand stitch a title onto your layout.  I just so happened to be working on another “Lift the Layout Above You” challenge, and was horrified (yes, horrified) to realize I was out of a few key letters from my AT Journal Foam Thickers in Black.  So, since I had the same pack of thickers in white, I simply replaced the missing letters with the white ones and started stitching around them to achieve the same font.   It was time consuming, but definitely worth it.  I had a lot of fun, and plan to hand stitch a lot of my titles in the future!

A few other things I’ve made for the class:

For the Map Challenge

There is a new challenge posted every week day and it’s been so fun to work on!  I have a few other challenges done, and will try and post them in the next couple of days 🙂

xo!
