Adding Embroidery to Project Life with Carrie

Hello Everybody!  It's Carrie, and today I have a spread in my Project Life album about these amazing puzzles I recently found.  They are by Thomas Kinkade and are Disney themed!!  Eeek!  Any other puzzle lovers out there?!? Lol ; )


Everything on these two 6x12 pages (apart from the photos) is from the Everyday Wishes Kit, and I just love how the colors compliment my Princess & The Frog puzzle!


For the two 3x4" journal cards, I cut this cute rainbow paper in half and found matching embroidery thread for each color of the rainbow.  Then I found these three hearts from the die-cut pack and popped them up near their matching colors.

The black and white "today" is from another die-cut pack of all scripted words.  These are one of my favorite products in the whole kit!  I personally think the addition of black really pulls a spread together.  Anyways, I popped the "today" up since this was the day I finished my first Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzle : )


I decided to add my journaling on the opposite page, and typed directly onto some patterned paper using my typewriter.  I rolled the pink paper a bit and popped up the top edge for added interest.  Also, there are lots of dark pink lines on this same strip of paper, and decided to use my paper trimmer to cut along two of the lines creating a flap so I could tuck my photo into it.


As a final touch for this spread I made another flap in the strip of paper to tuck in the bottom of my photo to match the top.  Then, I added a small pink and white journaling spot from one of the cut apart sheets and layered a popped up purple ticket.  I knew that I wanted to add embroidery on this page as well, so I decided to add purple thread to the ticket.....and that's it!

I hope you found a little inspiration today.  Happy February 15th to you!
