Three Amigos June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are featuring the Stitch Guide or Ruler with the Piercing Tool. I created the Confetti Wishes Workshop on the Go layout and added a little bit of stitching on the pages to go along with the stitched accents. We are in the midst of relocation activities around here, and I can't find the box my camera  was stuffed into. I had to use my iPad to take pics for this post, so the quality may seem sub-par. I can't make the pics any larger for viewing here either. Sigh. You can barely see the stitching in the first photo, but it's there.

I added the stitching around a few of the stamped star embellishments. The stitch guide has four circle sizes to choose from. I temporarily placed my embellishment on my layout, centered the circle on the stitch guide over my embellishment, and used the piercing tool to poke holes to sew through. If you squint and look closely, you'll notice I also stitched around the star shapes on the photo mats. The stitch guide contains all sorts of shapes and patterns. 

The title and stamped embellishments were also heat embossed with clear embossing powder to add a little more texture to the layout.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hop over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they created for you.
