☆♡{A Stitch With Twine}♡☆

It's Thursday and time for me to share another Timeless Twine post with you. 

Easter has already come and admist all of the celebrating, there are two goofy dogs who love hard boiled eggs.

Much to their dismay, Daddy and Paddy ate the two cracked eggs that were reserved for them. Not to be outdone, Cinna and Meg skulked around the kitchen, skimming the countertops with sniffy noses..hoping to catch wind of the eggs.

These goofy dogs were soon banished so that anual egg coloring could commence. The picture in the layout displays hope filled, pouting dogs...the latter being the funniest part of all.

It's all about the title on this layout. This is a fun way to make a big impact. You can add a personal touch to your layouts, using your own handwriting.

The first thing you need to do is write out what you'd like to get across..whether it's a word, a phrase, a number, etc.

The next step is to use a paper piercer and pierce what you wrote out. You know what comes next of course, stitching it. That's the lengthy part, but it's worth it.

You can stitch it right onto the page, card, etc. or do what I did and use a separate piece of paper and then later adhere it to your project. 

Check out the layout and the twine ♡ I used Graphite Gray to stitch the title, you can find it by clicking *{HERE}*

Look at those faces :D I hope they did get a taste of egg at some time. Stitching on a piece to add later is a good idea and it looks wonderful. Great job on your layout. The layers and sequins are beautiful.
