Stick It Down | March Sketch and Layout


Hey guys!  I am here with my Stick It Down layout today.


I kept pretty much to the sketch this month except for the sizing - and honestly that was a mistake!  Here's the sketch...



I have used supplies from my Cocoa Vanilla stash along with cardstock and vellum from Papermill Direct.  The cut file is a new one from me and is available over at Pretty My Page as both a download and a pre-cut. (Download herePre-cut here.)


I added some sewing.  I love the look of French knots but I always need a refresher on how to form them!


Now, that mistake I mentioned... I intended the layout to be 12x12 but as I was nearing the end I realised that rather than intended white space it just looked like I had left a great big gap to the right of my page.  It was easily solved by chopping down to a 9x12 layout.  As I say in my video I mix in all sorts of sizes in my albums so I'm fine with it not being 12x12.  If I don't have a page protector I will chop a 12x12 protector down to size.  This is where a Fuse tool would come in handy but as I don't have one (me and hot things aren't a great match) I just whizz a line of sewing along the cut edge with my sewing machine.


Here's the video...


I hope to see you over at the Stick It Down blog!
