Tips for creating this layout:

  • I used the Burnt Orange ABC to make my title on this page and resized the letters fit the space for the title.
  • The stitched border was made by inserting a straight path line and in the program that I use to scrapbook you can choose your colour and the pattern you like for the page.  You also can choose the size or width of the stitch lines.
