Most of you know that I've started doing Project Life style scrapbooking.

I am breaking a cardinal rule of scrapbooking - I'm redoing my daughter's baby book.  I have SO many pictures that I want to use, and after only 3 (3!!!  Don't crucify me TOO harshly!! ;)) LO's, I'm just not happy with the direction that it's going.  She is going to be my only child and I want this to be something I love and will be proud to give to her one day.

For my July project, I decided to incorporate my Silhouette Cameo into the mix. :)
I absolutely LOVE the look of stitching on projects.  It just adds SO much more to it!

I am lazy when it comes to sewing.  I don't like to drag my sewing machine out every time I want to stitch on something.

But guess what??

You can do faux stitching on your Cameo using the Print & Cut feature!!
(you can also do this with the sketch pens if you have them!)

Here's what I came up with:

Here's a closer up shot of the 3 cards that have the faux stitching on them:

For this part of the LO, I made a 3 inch slit in the page protector so that I would be able to get the hidden journaling card in and out of the pocket. :)

If you want to play along for a chance at these fun prizes listed about, link up here! and follow ALL of the instructions!!!
