March Dust it Off Challenge by Karen
Design Team Member Karen submitted this layout for the March Dust it Off Challenge. She said:
Hi! As promised a LO with a hand cut title. My first thought when I heard the challenge for this month was- what am I going to do? All the other ladies seemed to have various machinery they could dust off and use again but, I have never bought any machinery accept my sewing machine, which I use regularly. I thought about using some of my old stash but it didn't seem very exciting so instead I went for a technique I used to use all the time when I started scrapbooking. I had a collection of fonts on my computer that I downloaded from free sites and I would print out the titles for my LOs in whatever size I wanted and then trace them onto patterned paper and cut them out (tracing rather than printing directly onto the paper was a bit more economical with the patterned paper). Anyway it has been such a long time since I did this. We had updated our computer and all the fonts had been lost, so I had to download a few again. The font I chose to use was called Bounty and I printed the title off at font size 200! To update the look a bit I decided to overlap the letters and stitch through them. Hope you like it.
Now it's your turn to take the March Dust it Off Challenge. See all the details HERE!
