About two months ago, I took a Beginner Stitching class from Danelle Curtis at Scrap*Funattic. I had always admired the stitching on her pages for awhile, so this was my chance to learn and hopefully take my layouts to a whole new level.

This past Saturday night, I attended the PJ crop at Scrap*Funattic in honor of Krusty Mullins birthday and my goal was to complete and submit the Sketch Challenge that the Attic girls had posted on Facebook earlier this week. Deadline was yesterday, I got the layout done, but hadn't noticed the stitching detail until after my submission. That stitching detail really came to life when the digi girls (aka Danielle Vequist and Heather Smith) had submitted their layouts. I had to "fix" this page.


AFTER some freestyle stitching, I feel like my page is complete now. Freestyle stitching is where you punch your own holes with no pattern. I thought Danelle was nuts when she implied that everyone will get to that point when they would start to freestyle...HA, guess I am at that point!

Thanks so much CURTIS!!


  1. you are welcome!! The stitching TOTALLY makes the page!!! I love it! I am glad you are getting the hang of it and venturing out there! Stitches 2 will be coming soon so get ready to learn even more!

  2. I was so in LOVE with my page that I didn't notice that "freestyle stitching" is crooked. Oh well, I will stick with the fact that I was in LOVE with it at one point before I noticed the flaw...aaahh, such is LIFE!!

  3. Freestyle is crooked!! That is the whole beauty of it! and LOVE the Attic button BTW!!
