Hi there SCT fans! It’s Nicole here today with another “Designed With” video in our series! I really love adding texture to my projects and it is very easy to do with collection kits and coordinating products. 

Supplies | Patterned paper, die cuts, wood buttons: Close To My Heart Stitched Together collection; Cardstock: American Crafts

Close To My Heart makes gorgeous monthly page kits, card kits, and beautiful coordinating collections that make creating easy! I used the Stitched Together collection for this project, which made the design so easy to come together, and the collection of Stitched Together products already have many textural elements.

I mixed together patterned paper, machine stitching, wood buttons and die cuts to layer and add dimension and texture to my page. It was not a lot of effort and the results are fantastic!

Sit back and watch how easy it is to create your own project like this using a collection you have on hand, or maybe a new one, like the Stitched Together collection, that you have your eye on!

I hope you will give these textural techniques a try and share your project with us! Please tag me, @nicolenowosad and @sctmagazine on social media, and use the hashtag #sctmagazine so that we can see how it turned out!
