Designer Notes: If you want to give your title an elegant feel, you can simply embroider it using thick thread, like I did on this page. I first wrote her name with a pencil, then punched holes and connected these using colored thread. It didn't took me any longer than a few minutes, but I really loved the effect this stitching/embroidering gave.

Supplies Used: Blast Off! Collection - - Papers (Blast Off!, Constellation, Orbit, Stripe, Cut Outs), Butter Cup Journal, Double Dot, Noteworthy, Brads, Stickers, Chipboards, Buttons, Jewels, Wraps, Layered Stickers, Layered Chipboard, and Monkeying Around Cardstock Stickers.

Designer notes: Would you believe that this is the first time that I stitched my title? I tried to do it using simple stitching just so not to overwhelm me. LOL!!! I also used my crochet thread in doing cross stitching, I thought adding a bit of this makes an interesting texture on my page. I also incorporated faux stitching on my layout.

Designer notes: I am not a huge "stitcher" on my layouts, but I do love the effect of tacking with my hand stitching. Adding a few X's here and there adds a big punch!
