Stitching Challenge: Beach Babe Layout by Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with my Stitching Challenge project!  The Doodlebug Design Team members were challenged to create a project where stitching with Doodlebug Twine was the focus.  I decided to create stitching files on my Silhouette using the adorable Doodlebug Cut files!  Take a peek...

Since I wanted my stitching to be the focus, I kept my layout pretty simple...a grid design using some Gingham Linen Petite Prints and a few shaped sprinkles as embellishments.  I stitched using some Doodle Twine in Bumblebee, Coral (from the Spring Assortment, Bubble Blue, Swimming Pool, Bubblegum and Blue Jean.  Here are some close-ups of the stitched squares...

For these squares, I used the Silhouette cut files Sun- Fun in the Sun (here in Lori Whitlock SVG shop) and Clouds Spring Things (here in Lori Whitlock SVG shop)

The shell file is the Pearl Shell -Under the Sea Silhouette file (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop) , the waves I created myself.

The sand dollar was created using the Sand Dollar Under the Sea Silhouette file (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop),  The starfish is the Shell Under the Sea file (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop) and the fish is from  Fish - Anchors Aweigh file (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG shop).  

I finished my layout with a simple title using some Skinny Alphas in Swimming Pool and some Stickers from the Under The Sea Icon Sheet.

And now something for you!  I put together this video tutorial showing how I created the stitch files using my Silhouette and Doodlebug cut files.

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
