Stitching With Your Silhouette

Happy Saturday Friends!
I hopping on my blog this morning to share a fun Silhouette technique with you.  I love the look of stitching on scrapbook projects, but my sewing machine and I have a love/hate relationship -- I would love to use it, but hate lugging it out, threading everything, and then getting reminded how "not good" I am at using it. So, since I use my CAMEO every single day, I've decided that the "look" of stitching will have to do for now.

I created this baby mini album for the Silhouette blog, and posted a tutorial on how to create fun stitch lines with the software's print and cut features.  You can check out the whole tutorial here.

I made the base of my album with Silhouette's chipboard.  As you all know, I am a chipboard loving girl when it comes to my mini albums, and I was pleasantly surprised with Silhouette's product.  It cut beautifully in my machine and added a nice sturdy backing to each of the pages in this album.

For the title, I cut several of the same shape out of the chipboard and layered them together to create my own chipboard accent piece.  So cool -- I'm going to being doing this more often!

So head over to Silhouette to get all of the details on how to make the stitch lines, and for all the links to each shape I used on this mini.  Have fun and come back to visit soon!
