To say I am excited to bring you the first kit from the very talented Rachelle Sigurdson is an understatement! I have been a long time fan of Rachelle’s work.  Rachelle is known for layers and layers. It’s really no wonder how she got to be a design team member for both Maja Design and Dusty Attic chipboard. The mix of Rachelle, Dusty Attic and Maja Design… well how can you go wrong?

Her first kit for us, Beautiful if just that! With step-by-step color photos, Rachelle takes us on her journey as she created this layout.  She breaks down all the steps for us. Take a look…

I am sure looking at her layout you might be saying – did she hand stitch that layout? And the answer would be yes – well sort of – she did get some help. 🙂 If you aren’t in to hand stitching you can use a sewing machine for a “similar” look or a journaling pen.  Honestly I would have used my sewing machine but learned the kids broke it so as you can see on the bonus sample, I used a journaling pen to make some faux stitching lines. Certainly not as nice as Rachelle’s labor of love but it does work if you don’t have the time or want to do the work.

And here’s a look at the bonus sample I did with a few extra sets of paper and some extra elements…

There you have it! Kit includes materials needed to follow printed directions to create your own layout in Rachelle’s signature style (no video instruction).

Thank you for stopping in. As usual we have lots lined up. Next kit to come – Marta Lapkowska! Another beautiful layout. This one featuring Dreamy Morning papers from LemonCraft. Gabrielle Pollacco will be back first thing next week with a don’t want to miss kit featuring Autumn Anthology papers from Blue Fern Studios.
