Ready for School

Hi Everyone,
I am sharing my very first Paper Bakery post with you.  I was given the January Love Potion #9 Scrapbook kit to play with this month.  I love the mix of pattern papers and embellishments in this kit.  They are great for Valentines day, as well as day to day events.  I decided to make my first layout about my niece who recently started preschool.  I started my layout by creating this fun background in Silhouette studio using different shaped speech bubbles, and then backed them with different pieces of pattern papers and embellishments from the kit.

Ready For School Layout

A quick way to add pizzazz to your layouts is to add stitching to them.  One of my favorite techniques is to add lots of hand stitching to my layouts using embroidery floss.  I used hand stitching as well as machine stitching on this layout.

Check back this month to see more projects made with Love Potion #9.

Thanks for stopping by today!
