We R Memory Keepers Merry January

Merry January is a most benefiting title for my layout since it was in January that we had this snowfall. I decided I would go ahead and do the companion layout to go with the one that I posted last week, since I was on a roll with the Easy Sew from We R Memory Keepers. I just love this tool and "sew easy" to use. I went and purchased the other 3 tips yesterday. Can't wait to use them. A couple look like I will have to practice to get them mastered. It is just a nice way to add stitching to your layouts.

This time I took a strand of the grey with a strand of the blue to give my cross stitches some more depth. I am now thinking about going back to my previously posted layout and changing it to the same colors.
Here are a couple of views so you are able to see the detail of the stitching and the ruffling of my border trim. I cut a 3/4' strip and then with my scissors cut narrow cuts into each line. I used tweezers to get the rolled effect. It is very tedious but yet I think it gave a fabulous detail to the page.
Here are the two pages together. I know the green does look a little overwhelming on the blog but in reality it matches the greens in the We R Memory Keepers Merry January collections.
