I Don’t Even Like Valentine’s Day

I’ve done a page or two about my love for leggings, but I felt this one deserved a special layout.

I Don't Even Like Valentine's Day

I have a difficult time resisting LuLaRoe themed leggings. And it’s really no different when it comes to Valentine’s Day. So I bought several pair even though, as the title says: I don’t even like Valentine’s Day.

So let’s talk about the layout.

  • I used this sketch. It’s for a challenge at Two Peas Refugees: There are challenges every day in February, and I have been busy in the scraproom.
  • I have been using my sewing machine lately. In this case, I did some stitching in the middle of the diamonds. The first time I did it, the diamonds (and the stitching) were slanted to the left as they went up. I tried to roll with it and keep going, but I couldn’t take it. I redid the diamonds and the stitching.
  • The most challenging part of the layout was the cluster below the page. I can’t even tell you how many times I moved pieces around. I’m pleased with the results, but it took a long time to get there.

I hope you’ll check out my process video as well.

Thanks for visiting. Until next time. 🙂
