National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop with Lifestyle Crafts

Hello and happy National Scrapbook Day!

It's so great to have you here.

If this is your first time visiting my blog, thank you for stopping by!

If you've been here before, thanks so much for coming back ☺

For the hop today I've created a layout using Lifestyle Crafts metal sheets, star punches, Twinkle embossing folder and We R Memory Keepers stitch templates (sentiments, stars, zigzag border) and thread. I've also used papers from the WeR Inked Rose collection and some mists from Heidi Swapp and Studio Calico.

Here are a few closer looks: 

The stitching templates are so simple to use! All you have to do is choose the one you want, place it on your paper where you'd like the design to be and poke holes as shown. Then pick a color of thread to match your project and go to work! It adds such a fun homespun element to your projects. 

The punches and embossing folder were so easy to use with the metal sheets. They were so smooth! I am going to have to try using this on other projects! I like that Lifestyle Crafts has so many fun products (like the metal, cork and vellum sheets I've used on projects in the past). 

I used a variety of the We R Memory Keepers threads to add lots of pops of color to my page. 

You are in for quite a treat with this hop.
